You'll be pleased to know the Sugar editors are very well trained when it comes to bathing. Kidding, we mean moisturising — particularly in Winter. We're always hearing how important it is to look after the skin on our face, but it's equally important to take care of our lovely limbs. Our legs and arms have been covered up for a few months now, but as the sun begins to shine, we're starting to think about prepping our skin for Spring. Cue the shower gel, scrubbing tools and body moisturisers we know we can rely on. This week our editors share two of their favourites.
