You Need Lotion. These Are Some Of The Best.
By Alix Turoff
As we approach winter, concerns of dry skin begin to take precedence over obtaining a bronze glow or ombre highlights.
Luckily, regardless of what part of your body is prone to dryness, there’s a lotion that will help fix it!
For your feet: Yuni All Purpose Body Balm ($25)
The feet (especially those pesky heels), are one of the first parts of the body to become dry. Shea butter is always the answer – it reduces inflammation, protects the skin and helps maintain firmness! This body balm also packs an organic, sustainably harvested kukui seed oil, which hydrates and repairs even the most depleted skin thanks to it’s rich fatty acid and vitamin content.
For your face: Chuda Healing Hydrating Cream ($150)
For even the most sensitive areas, Chuda’s hydrating cream works wonders. This lotion formula has a unique story to tell. It’s the first formula to utilize the “Remedea Compound”, a blend of six ingredients, the amounts of which are a well-guarded family secret. Rose oil, beeswax, calcium carbonate, propolis, and male pine flower pollen work together to hydrate and rapidly heal the most damaged skin. It can also be used as a spot treatment on the face or body in areas that are specifically experiencing extreme dryness or redness.
For your elbows and knees: Weleda Skin Food Ultra Rich Cream ($12.79)
Dry, rough skin of any age gets indulgent moisture with this intensively nourishing, deeply hydrating lotion. It’s a unique, ultra-rich whole-body cream that deeply hydrates, restores, and protects your skin. Moisturize stubborn dryness on your elbows, hands, and feet with the essential fatty acids and vitamin E in the organic sunflower seed oil. Known for its mild antiseptic properties, organic pansy calms dryness and irritation. Soothing rosemary leaf extract’s mild antiseptic properties and the anti-inflammatory properties of Biodynamic® and organic calendula flower extract gently nourish and care for your skin. Deeply moisturized and protected, your skin looks soft and supple with a healthy glow. It’s your recommended daily allowance of radiance, and it’s just what you and your skin are craving.
For your body: Ellovi Butter in Vanilla ($26)
Think about a creamy vanilla lotion spiked with a rich bourbon, then think about rubbing it all over your body. Yeah, this stuff is pretty incredible. You only need a little bit; so don’t be scared of the small jar. Ellovi’s vanilla butter uses the purest form of vanilla in the world, extracted by carbon dioxide and is perfect for sensitive skin.
For your hands: Cerave Healing Ointment ($11.49)
You can’t beat the price of CeraVe’s amazing healing ointment. We love to use this on our hands in the cold weather, especially if you plan to do a lot of cooking/hand washing. You can even use this stuff to protect small cuts and burns. Keep it in your desk drawer and reapply every few hours to keep hands soft and full of moisture.
For your cuticles: Zim’s Max Crack Creme ($5.99)
No matter how often we get manicures in the winter, it feels like our cuticles are always dry and breaking. Zim’s Max Crack creme is all you need to keep your cuticles moist and healthy. Cement workers have actually been using this lotion for over 60 years when they would complain of dry skin on their hands and feet. It’s also favorite among mechanics, construction workers, and health care workers who really feel the brunt of dry, cracked skin.
