Dry Skin Treatments
If your idea of shopping for skin care products involves a health food store instead of a pharmacy or department store, you're in luck. There are some excellent body lotions for dry skin using natural, organic, and earth-friendly ingredients.
Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion ($12.99) infuses your skin with moisture and softness clinically proven to last for 24 hours. In addition to milk and honey, this product also contains coconut and grapeseed oil as well as vitamin E.
For more earth-based moisturizing power, try Jason Naturals Organic Apricot Hand and Body Lotion ($8.99). You'll get a rich combination of green tea extract and almond oil that soothes dry, chapped skin and delivers nourishing emollients.
Wintertime poses a challenge for people who suffer from dry skin. Cold, dry, windy days combined with indoor heat can take the last drop of moisture from your skin and leave you chalky, itchy and unhappy. While just about any deep moisturizing lotion or body butter will help keep your skin comfortable this time of year, there are a few products labelled specifically for winter use.
Who knows more about surviving the winter than Canadians, eh? Green Beaver Apres Ski Winter Body Lotion ($11.95) is a colloidal oatmeal-infused formula created by our neighbors to the north. It's 100% natural and safe for children and adults alike. Green Beaver has a whole line of great winter skincare products, and they ship to the U.S.
