After I lather up with the Dove but before I shave, I do a thorough scrub with Lather Almond Creme Body Buff (available on amazon.com for $35, along with a matching body butter). This creamy scrub is gritty enough without skewing oily and sloughs dead skin cells from my lifestyle in a flash, readying skin follicles for a super-smooth shave. And it smells delightfully of sweet almond. Get involved.
Once I'm out of the shower, I towel off and do a vigorous application of Nourish Organic Body Butter in Fig ($10 at ulta.com). The brand is sold at Whole Foods and is PHENOMENAL. This rich, thick cream feels more like a balm and is comprised of coconut and olive oil blended with rich shea butters. When I say rich, I mean Bill Gates rich-you'll feel almost like you're slathering on Land O'Lakes, but it's worth it. Your dry skin will vanish leaving hydrated limbs (even feet) in its place for a full 24 hours.
And tell me: What's your dry skin winter remedy?
