Dry Skin Treatments
As we get older, our skin retains less moisture, making it appear crepey and dull. The body wash and lotion you used when you were younger may no longer do the trick as you approach middle age. No worries; you have some excellent anti-aging moisturizing body care products to choose from. You may want to start with a good drugstore brand, like the Olay Age Defying product line. It includes bar soaps, body washes and lotions designed to fight the appearance of aging. Olay Quench Plus Age Defying Body Lotion ($8) moisturizes your thirsty skin, evens out tone, and improves elasticity with continued use.
The natural moisturizers in St. Ives Collagen Elastin Lotion ($5) can help improve the look and feel of your skin with a special botanical formula. This product is a great buy for women who want to fight the signs of aging without shelling out big bucks.
Dry, cracked hands are the bane of many a woman's existence. Women, especially those who care for children, wash their hands multiple times a day, stripping their skin of moisture and often washing away whatever hand treatments they're using.
Avon Silicone Glove Hand Cream ($3) is an amazing little product for the price. It delivers moisture deep into the skin to help relieve painful hand dryness, and best of all, it keeps working even after hand washing. Many health care professionals rely on Silicone Glove to keep their skin smooth and soft.
