So what to do now? If you do not have moisturized skin, do something, and if you have, protect it. Here's how you can achieve beautiful and healthy looking skin.
-Drink plenty of water
-Avoid oily and spicy food
-If you skin is sensitive, find out what causes it and avoid
-8 hours of sleep is a must
-a good body shampoo (what i mean is those that's reasonable like Lux, Johnson and etc)
-Scrub your skin at least once a week to exfoliate the dead skin
-Moisturize it with lotion / body butter
If you're constantly in an air conditioned room especially office or sleeping hour, it's a must to apply lotion to keep your skin moisturized and prevent flaky skin.
Here's this awesome body lotion that i would like to recommend to you guys as i think this's the perfect lotion for me so far and i will continue using it until i find a better one in the future. Vaselline Total Moisture body lotion. This is the new line of Vaselline and it comes in a few range for different requirement. The particular one that i like to most is the Total Moisture Nourishing body lotion with Pure oat extract and Stratys 3 multi-layer moisture.
What it claims :
Vaseline Total Moisture Nourishing lotion leaves your skin feeling healthy, soft & smooth. Our 24 hour nourishing formula combines pure oat extract and stratys 3 multi layer moisture for a quick absorption, infusing moisture at the top, core and deep down layers of skin, keeping skin amazing.
Did you get that? Oat Extract! Whee.. Oat extract is well known for its moisturizing properties and it's one of the natural ingredient for a healthy skin.
Here's a short summary of what the expert says about oats extract :
It has great anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used extensively in cosmetic preparations for many years.
Oats extract is especially used in products that have a moisturizing and anti-aging effect, as well as in products that are used to alleviate acne, pimples and to treat problem skin.
The main constituents of oats extract are saponins (avenacosides A and B, avenacin) and polyphenols.
Although the cosmetic use of oats in folklore is firmly entrenched and has stood the test of time, it has been proven in modern cosmetics to offer very valuable properties and yield excellent results.

Vaseline Total Moisture nourishing body lotion have a very soothing smell which is not too overwhelming and strong for a daily use.
The texture is not too runny nor thick, just nice. It's easy to apply and my skin loves this product a lot as it absorb it quickly.

It keep my skin moisturize all day long. I apply it during the day time before applying the sun block. And night time after bath. It's not waterproof and thus i have to reapply if when it's being washed away.

What i like about this product :
-makes my skin stays hydrated and smooth as claim
-love the soothing smell
-stays dry, not oily, sticky or greasy
-nice texture and easy to apply

-affordable and available conveniently everywhere
Other smell/range of this Vaseline body lotion :

-Intense rescue repairing moisture
For very dry skin. Provide 24 hour moisture treatment. Repairs and soften
Refreshing with aloe vera formula and provide non sticky hydration

Comes with SPF for day time use.
I don't really like the other range of the product due to several reason like the smell is too intense for me, some is a little greasy for me as i live in a tropical country with hot climate, and the one with SPF is good but i can't take the strong smell.
So the total moisture that i have is the best for me, the smell and texture is good enough for daily application and nothing to complain for such an affordable and awesome product! Thumbs up! Why not grab one and try it out yourself? You'll love it! =)
