9 out of 10 Malaysians spend 80% of their day in an air-conditioned environment and it’s inevitable for our skin to become dry and sad. In general, many of us don’t pay as much attention to our bodies as to our faces because it’s usually clothed or subconsciously, we think no one ever notices it.

Although it may be true, at the end of the day, skin is still skin and it’s the largest organ we own. Thus, it’s vital to take heed of the health of your skin as well. That being said, it’s also best to not depend utterly on body lotions to replenish the moisture you lost to some crappy body wash. Keep on reading to find out the best shower gels for dry skin that’ll only strip dirt (and not moisture) off you.

Sebamed is often highly recommended to patients with sensitive skin by doctors and dermatologists. This immensely mild face-to-toe shower gel targets at balancing your skin’s pH value to an optimum level of 5.5 which helps to safeguard your skin against toxins as well as preventing excessive water loss. It’s allegedly an A+ facial cleanser for sensitive skin too!    

2. Rosken Skin Repair Dry Skin Wash

Best for flaky skin

Price from RM21.90

The first impulse that might seem right to do when our skin is peeling, logically, is to scrub it off. But, hold that thought; scrubbing can actually do more harm than good. Over-exfoliating may result in even irritated skin. So put your scrubs aside, use a mild shower gel like this Rosken one instead. It’s free from many infamous harsh ingredients in generic body washes - namely soap, parabens, fragrances, and coloring.  

3. Coco Veda Body Wash with Virgin Coconut Oil

Best organic shower gel

Price from RM38.00

Coconut oil might seem like one of those slightly overrated beauty holy grails that lots of people of all ages and genders have sworn by. But, you really can’t blame them because it’s proven that coconut oils have some sort of magic that benefit our entire existence. Coco Veda solely sells personal care products that are 100% made with virgin coconut oil and this body wash is no exception.  

4. Fresh Life Bath and Shower Gel

Best for extremely dry skin

Price from RM86.00

shopping_cart Sephora Malaysia RM86.00

Feeling a little extra and boujee? This luxury shower gel does not only give your skin the intense hydration it thirsts for but it also has Vitamin C that will instantly wash away any grey, ashy tones on your skin. The cocoa butter and castor oil in this shower gel are what makes it an invigorating formula. So, lather on and witness it for yourself!     

5. Guardian 24Hour Rich Care Ultra Nourishing Body Wash

Best cheap shower gel

Price from RM13.15

shopping_cart Guardian Malaysia RM13.15

Good things don’t necessarily come expensive. 1 liter of shower gel for only under RM15—it’s an absolute hit! This 24Hour rich care body wash is formulated with ultra-moisturizing agents like Activ4 complex, Shea Butter, and Hyaluronic Acid, to retain maximum hydration on the skin.

Best for itchy skin

Price from RM59.80

shopping_cart Hermo Malaysia RM59.80

On a scale from 1 to 10 on the severity of dry skin, itchiness sits at a good number 8.

Nonetheless, it’s still not too late to save your skin from cracking, then bleeding. This one by Dove is specially made for dry itchy skin and it’s also perfect for Eczema-prone skin.

Best herbal shower gel

Price from RM140.00

shopping_cart Sephora Malaysia RM140.00

This Rahua body shower gel is jam-packed with nature’s greatest gifts and if you urgently need a quick spa fix at home, look no further than this one.
