Solution: Not Your Run-Of-The-Mill Dry Skin Savers

September 23, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

In some ways, I've been blessed with good skin. I don't break out, and tend to tan rather than burn. But I also suffer from very dry skin. Like, the kind of skin that makes me the kind of girl who puts on hand lotion after every wash, sees her legs get ashy if they go a few hours without hydration, and goes crazy if moisturizer is not at my disposal every minute of every day. For those of you who know my pain and sorrow, here are a few dry skin helpers you might not know about.  

What's On My Desk Now and Always. Only upon locating its online retail locations did I realize Soft and Beautiful SKIN Hand Cream ($6.38) is aimed primarily at African American women. But this is one white girl who loves the almond, cocoa, and shea butter moisturizers in this lotion. I use it at least seven times a day. No exaggeration. And it smells great, too.

When I'm Stressed at Work. I spray Prana Refresh Mist ($26) mist on my face and neck and whatever other skin is exposed. This cool, refreshing, and moisturizing spray feels great, and hydrates as well.

Prana

The Best Moisturizer Out There. On the backs of my arms, I have such rough, dry skin that I asked a doctor about it for the first time when I was seven years old. It's that rough. Ever since then, I just put up with it, doing my best to exfoliate and moisturize, using all kinds of "high-potency" creams, but without any success at all. Until now. AmLactin XL ($33.75)–once prescription-only, now available to everyone–has a patented blend of three alpha-hydroxy moisturizers that works better than other products. Way better.
