Because No One Likes An Itch

By Amalah

Hello Amalah-

I need your advice! Every year around this time, especially living in Minnesota, my skin gets very very dry. Not just dry, but to the point where I can SEE the dry, especially on my thighs? and my upper arms. I’ve been testing a plethora of lotions for daily use, but I haven’t come across anything I love, or even really like. Usually right after I put the stuff on I’m okay, but give it oh, an hour and little skin flakes come creeping back. I try to stay away from fragranced lotions because I feel they aren’t as moisturizing, but I could be wrong. And as for in the shower, I usually use Bath and Body Works stuff, but I’m definitely open to try new things if you have suggestions, because honestly? dry skin you can feel just isn’t sexy.

Thanks so much!
Ali

Ah, yes, the flakes of winter. I know them well.
