Best Lotions for Dry Skin

The worst part about it being March 5th is that is was snowing all day today! I love the snow but come on - it didn't snow all Winter but decides to snow once a week now. With the snow and harsh 1 digit temperatures us New Yorkers have been experiencing, what else do we get to enjoy? Dry skin. I suffer from eczema and sometimes I just want to itch my legs off. With these lotions and creams I have used this Winter I promise you will have much softer, smoother, and quenched skin. 

1. CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream - $15.99


This has been my savor this year! As you can see there is a huge dent in this jar and this is my second one this Winter. My dermatologist recommended this to me for my eczema. He said I could find it in any drug store or grocery store. I didn't believe him - I always need something stronger with a steroid or cortisone in it. My skin can be so dry and itchy; as soon as I put this on it completely takes that feelings away. 

CeraVe even has a stamp on the back that says it is Accepted by the National Eczema Association. 
It isn't greasy at all and has something called MVE - MultiVescular Emulsion which provides a controlled release of essential ceramides and other skin-nurturing and emollient ingredients over time. Also infused with hyaluronic acid to help keep your skins moisture in tact. The only thing I don't love is the smell - it's fragrance free and just smells bland. 

Tip: Use this all over when you get out of the shower. You will wake up with smooth, hydrated skin.

2. Soap and Glory - The Righteous Butter™ Body Lotion $24.00 at Sephora

Another ultra smoothing lotion is from Soap & Glory. "This lush yet surprisingly lightweight hydrator delivers the perfect level of moisture to dry skin. Its rich, deep-sinking formula is made with shea and cocoa seed butters, sweet almond and rosehip seed oils, aloe vera, vitamin E, and a special seaweed-sourced smoother. This lotion goes on silky—never greasy—and swiftly replenishes moisture to dry elbows, knees, and feet. " The best part is it has notes of vanilla, sandalwood, and bergamont. It smells amazing and it super hydrating at the same time!

Tip: Put this lotion on before you get dressed in the morning. It will keep you hydrated and smelling delicious all day!

I hope if you are having dry skin issues you consider trying one of these products. They have helped me so much!! Let me know what you think, stay warm, and bring on Spring!!
