Favorite Dry Skin Products

As Jo-Lynne mentioned in her post on Friday, this cooler weather is already making my skin dry up.

Thanks to the wonders of daylight savings time… I woke up at 4 am today with itchy dry skin. Ugh.

For my money, there is only 1 product that I really know and trust will get the job done to stop the winter itchies.

I discovered Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream when my nieces were infants with super-sensitive skin – but this product has become a staple in my product cabinet.

Cetaphil Moisturizing CreamIt comes out of the tub super-thick but rubs into skin like it’s a light lotion. It doesn’t leave my skin greasy in the slightest but honestly moisturizes all day long.

It has a price tag of around $12 depending on where you look (but I usually can find it on sale and then search the internet for a coupon). And honestly? It’s worth way more than $12 and will last quite a long time.

I’m always on the hunt for good shower moisturizers and washes this time of year… but year after year, Cetaphil Cream is a must-have to stop my winter itchy skin.

Is it cold where you live yet? What do you swear by to cure winter skin??

(And even though it might sound like it… Cetaphil did NOT pay me to say this. I said it for free. Although, for the record, I would gladly accept a lifetime supply for my ringing endorsement.)

  1. I’m a huge fan of Avon’s Moisture Therapy lotion – it’s been put to use this weekend in cold North Carolina. (I am not over last winter yet, so I’m really hating the transition into winter right now.)

  2. I apply olive oil as soon as I am out of the shower, while my skin is still wet. And on my lips too, it gives me soft lips, as my lips can crack quite a bit(that is an understatement :)) during this weather!

  3. I use Cetaphil cleanser, don’t think I’ve ever seen the moisturizer. I get very dry skin in the winter ( it’s starting to show up now) but I’m really picky about moisturizers; I can’t stand anything that I can feel once I’ve applied it. I want it to soak right in and not leave any kind of sticky or greasy coating on my skin. I’ve been through a few, trying to find something that works for me, and my favorite for the last few years has been Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Body Moisturizer. Expensive, but it works.
