Best Body Buys for Winter

Best Body Buys for Winter

Love the Winter season, but hate the change in skin care regime that goes along with it? You’re not the only one! Not only is dealing with Winter skin a schlep and a half, but knowing which products will work for you becomes more of an issue than anything else. The last thing you want to do is make the problem worse! So, with a little bit of research and trying and testing, I have made a list of some of the best body buys to Winter proof your skin!

Eucerin Dry Skin Range:
Highly effective and trusted by many, the Eucerin Dry Skin Range has proven to relieve all kinds of dry skin conditions. Three must-haves from this skincare line for the chilly season are:


  • Eucerin Dry Skin Bath & Shower Therapy 20% Omega – a lightly foaming cleansing emollient with natural oils designed to gently replenish, soften and protect the skin while soothing the itching associated with dry skin conditions. Ideal for daily showering and bathing, simply apply the product to wet skin, massage and then rinse thoroughly. No fragrance or colourants have been added to this product, making it perfect for all skin types and suitable for use on babies. Because of the 20% Omega component in this cleanser, your skin is protected against further dryness. 

  • Eucerin Dry Skin Complete Repair Moisture Lotion – a rich and creamy formula that not only replenishes, but fights the relevant key factors causing problematic dry skin. With 5% Urea, a gold standard in the treatment of very dry skin, you can finally be at ease with your skin again. You will be left with silky, sustainably soothed skin without any tautness. Because this moisturiser supports your skin’s own moisture supply strengthening the lipid barrier of your skin, moisture loss is minimised and moisture supply is maximised. No fragrance or colourants have been added to this product, making it perfect for all skin types and suitable for use on babies. Use daily or as often as required to sustainably relieve typical dry skin symptoms.

  • Eucerin Dry Skin Soothing Lotion 12% Omega – an easily absorbed lotion that hydrates, soothes and reduces the redness while relieving the tightness of dry, chapped and often itchy skin. The 12% Omega component replenishes what the skin is missing, strengthens the skin’s barrier lipid layer and the cohesion between cells, ultimately leaving the skin visibly soft and smooth, and the overall condition of the skin sustainably improved. Licochalcone, a licorice root extract, additionally helps to calm and sooth redness in the long term. No fragrance or colourants have been added to this product, making it perfect for all skin types and suitable for use on babies. It is also the perfect adjunctive care for atopic eczema. Simply apply once or twice daily on affected areas.
