Skin that needs exfoliating can cause inchy legs in the winter months, exfoliate and moisterise requarly, that will shed the dead skin cells and they wont feel as dry. TIP: when you shave your legs use hair moisteriser to keep legs soft put on before you shave.
Make sure you are using a body wash suitable for sensitive skin with added moisturisers (rinse well!) and moisturise daily - you can use something for sensitive skin such as E45 or similar (Dermalogica is an option but not everybody can afford that) or an oil such as Almond Oli or Wheatgerm (not baby oil as it is a mineral oil and for the reasons stated in another reply) - apply after washing and every day. Exfoliate regularly but be gentle - dont scrub!! Hope this helps!!
Freya there is quicker way @BeautyBySophia ;) apply it directly on wet body and then use a towel, try not to let your body cool down oil will penetrate better your skin when skin is warm and pores open remember to concentrate on your legs firs after application and just after drying wear a boots or thick socks. And remember: drink a lot! this kind of hydration is most efective. good luck!
Baby oil is 100% mineral oil. This commonly used petroleum ingredient coats the skin just like plastic wrap. The skin's natural immune barrier is disrupted as this plastic coating inhibits its ability to breathe and absorb the Natural Moisture Factor (moisture and nutrition). The skin's ability to release toxins is impeded by this 'plastic wrap,' which can promote acne and other disorders. This process slows down skin function and normal cell development causing the skin to prematurely age. Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream is an ultra-rich, long-lasting body cream designed to help heal and relieve extra dry skin. This unique liquefying formula is also ideal for all-over, deeply-moisturising body massages. Fortified with Dermalogica's Environmental Protection Complex of Glycolipids and Vitamin E to help restore and enhance the barrier function of skin, reducing moisture loss while combating free radical damage. Hyaluronic Acid and Evening Primrose Oil, a concentrated source of skin-smoothing Linoleic Acid, quenches and reconditions thirsty skin while Panthenol aids in cellular repair.
