I don’t know about you, but my skin starts to get dry when the weather gets colder, and not only that, but I get these bumps on my legs which I really just don’t understand. Two things that help dramatically is dry brushing my legs before getting in the shower (I think that any time you start covering your legs more, you need to exfoliate them more) and moisturizing!! Duh…I know you knew that one. But I am talking about oils and body washes, not just your typical body lotion.
Some of the best body washes are: (note that most moisturizing body washes are not going to lather a whole lot)
Lavanila Sport Luxe Healthy Body Wash 3-in-1 ($16) – this one is specifically designed to target sweat and oil after a workout while leaving your skin moisturized! You can also use it as a shave cream which is nice since you don’t want to haul a ton of products to the gym with you.
Morccainoil Body Shower Milk ($32) – This is great feeling and smells amazing! Totally moisturizing!
Kneipp Orange Blossom and Jojoba Shower Foam ($16) – This starts off as a gel that balloons into a foam…which is sort of fun to use and it smells citrusy which can be a plus in the winter months.
Caress Pure Embrace Body Wash ($3.49) – There are lots of scents and these are all very moisturizing and fabulous for the cost!!!
If you just want to use an in shower moisturizer after your body wash, consider using the Eucerin or Nivea in shower moisturizers. Both are great products and you just smooth them right on before doing your final rinse. Your skin will feel super smooth! Go with a body serum!! These are so nice to put on after a shower. They smell amazing and leave your skin hydrated and on its way to looking/feeling younger by the minute!
Clarins Renew Plus Body Serum ($64) – Age defying and absorbs quickly leaving a light sheen.
L’Occitane Almond Velvet Youthful Body Serum ($52) – this one is supposed to help with dark spots and even out skin tone.
Vaseline healing serum ($7.99) – deep penetration to replenish lipids.
Kahina FEZ Body Serum ($32) – 100% natural and provides a stress relieving aroma. This is a great one if you shower at night.
One Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum ($39) – a bunch of different scents help you pick out which one works best for you!
