Sugar Scrubs which can be found at places like Bath and Body Works, really do work wonders on the skin. They live the skin feeling soft and supple with no oily residue.
Those of you who use Dove moisturizing or exfoliating body wash already know the wonders that it works on dry skin.
Don’t take hot showers. Hot water can dry your skin and take away some of your skin’s natural moisture. Taking warm (tepid) showers can eliminate this problem.
Using baby oil before you rinse in the shower adds an extra moisture boost to your skin. Also the water from the shower helps your skin to absorb the oil. Neutrogena bath oil helps also.
Try taking a warm bath with Vaseline bath beads and Vaseline bath and body oil in the water. Make sure that you remain in the water at least 15 minutes to allow the water to start to penetrate your skin.
If you skin no longer begins to wrinkle after spending 15 minutes in the bathtub than you should probably stay in a little longer and start taking more baths instead of showers.
You can use this time to relax with a good book or listen to some good music. Light some candles and create a little atmosphere. Remember to rinse off after taking your bath. This helps to remove the excess oils from your body.
When going to bed apply Neutrogena crème for extremely dry skin (which can be found at your local drug store or Wal-Mart) to your hands and feet and use hand gloves and foot socks that are made for use with moisturizing crèmes. Mary Kay has a wonderful Satin Hands treatment that can be used on hands and feet. Contact your local Mary Kay consultant for a free trial or sample.
