Take a rub of these dream creams to ward off the chill of winter months!
The chill of the season is well underway, and Old Man Winter is taking no prisoners. Trust us, we’ve all been there: dry and cracked skin, not to mention those rough patches that just won’t go away no matter how hard you try. To save your skin from crying “foul!” here are some luxurious creams specially crafted to help you keep the ash away all winter long.
Whip up a batch of serious moisture with this Whoopie Cream Shea Butter Body Cream (Farmhouse Fresh, $30). Smelling good enough to eat (but, um, please don’t), this old-fashioned jar is packed with all the good stuff to lock in the moisture your skin needs. With a blend of shea and cocoa butters, aloe and vitamins A and E, this sweet skin treat will have you thinking back to mama’s kitchen every time you smooth it on.
Aloe and orange peel make this Grin and Bare It Skin-Quenching Body Lotion (Bath and Body Works, $15) a moisturizing miracle-worker. Packed in a squeeze tube for easy carrying, it can smooth, soothe and protect your skin from almost anywhere. Come summer, you’ll be all set to “grin and bare” beautiful skin.
For a moisture-rich mix that’s truly heavenly, try out this Milk and Honey Body Butter (SanÍtas, $29). With natural ingredients like milk protein and Colorado honey to soften and nourish, and shea butter to rehydrate and rejuvenate, your prayers will be answered every time you apply.
The lightest heavy-duty cream you’ll ever see (or feel!), this Almond Cookie Shea Soufflé (Carol’s Daughter, $13) is perfect for rubbing away all your troublesome rough spots. Fluffy and soft with a powerful punch, this comforting concoction will have you cooing “ooh-la-la” in no time.
Gear up for sweet dreams and soft skin with this Aloe Soothing Night Cream (The Body Shop, $20). Especially designed for the sensitive-skinned, this soother works as you sleep to restore your moisture barrier without the use of preservatives, fragrances and dyes, providing you with the natural calming balm you’ve been dreaming of.
