Dry Skin on Your Body This Winter? Soothe it With Great New Products!

It’s cold again in Kansas City…boo!  And we are expecting sleet and snow in the next couple of days.  My skin is dying from the cold dry air here!

Below are a few new body skin care products that I have been testing. They are really helping my skin stay hydrated this winter!

Utterly Quenched Hand & Body Lotion
Utterly Quenched Hand & Body Lotion

Utterly Quenched Hand & Body Lotion ($12 USD) This nourishing lotion has the moisture that dry skin craves—completely satisfying thirsty skin as plant peptides rejuvenate. It’s a smooth infusion of sheer moisture—hydrating head-to-toe with Sugar Cane and our moisturizing complex of plant oils and butters. Here’s how:

  • our VATA Herbal Complex—pure hydration from Coconut juice and Sugar Cane, with potent Amla (an antioxidant “super fruit”).
  • our balanced moisture blend—Shea butter, plus Sunflower, Coconut and Palm oils.

100% natural fragrance blend:  Organic Vanilla Oleoresin, Vanillin Natural, Ginger, Cardamom, Clove and Orange Oil Extracts and other essential oils

What I think:  This is a great lotion to have close by because it can be used on the body and hands and does not leave a greasy residue.  When I first tried it, I thought it would be too light for deep moisture, but it really made my skin soft and smooth.  It also locks in hydration after a bath or shower.  And the scent is fresh and spicy. Nice!

Skinfix Body Repair Balm
Skinfix Body Repair Balm

Skinfix Body Repair Balm ($16.50 USD for 2 oz) —  The ultimate remedy for dryness and irritation. As the temperature drops, eczema and dermatitis flare-ups rise. This condition chronically affects 1 in 5 adults and each year prevalence rates continue to rise. These painfully dry, red, itchy and flaky skin patches pop up without warning and many people turn to hydrocortisone or steroids, which do more harm than good to the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Skinfix Body Repair Balm™ is a medicinal, all-natural alternative infused with colloidal oatmeal, healing botanicals and emollient protective oils. This best-seller works fast to safely relieve symptoms of dermatitis, itchy rashes, and extreme dry skin all over the body.

Trusted for generations. Compounded with natural ingredients. NO hydrocortisone, steroids, parabens, phthalates or added fragrance.

  • Dermatologist Tested
  • All-natural and fragrance free
  • Immediate relief from redness and irritation
  • Provides protective emollient barrier for extreme dry skin
  • Perfect for cracked heals and elbows

What I think:  My daughter has eczema and has been using hydrocortisone when it flairs up.  I gave this to her and she loves how it helps the redness without irritation. I also used it on my irritated cuticles at night and in the morning they were soft and soothed.  Also great for very dry heals.  Rub it in and put some cotton socks on at night — super soft feet in the morning!

Clear the Surface Gentle Efoliant
Clear the Surface Gentle Efoliant

Clear the Surface Gentle Efoliant ($19 USD) — This gently effective scrub takes it easy. Ultrafine walnut powder and calming ingredients pave the way to glowing skin. It’s a complete about-face for skin needing renewal. Gentle plant exfoliants slough away imperfections and brighten skin, while nourishing oils fight off blemishes and signs of irritation. Here’s how:

  • exfoliating walnut shell powder, plus papaya and pineapple extracts.
  • anti-blemish Neem and Coleus oils.
  • calming Licorice and Comfrey.

I use this every few days and it is gentle, but so effective.  It leaves my skin very soft.  Also, it smells fantastic (as all of these products do).

Calmly Clean Body Wash (PITTA dosha)
Calmly Clean Body Wash (PITTA dosha)

Calmly Clean Body Wash (PITTA dosha) ($10 USD) —

  • balancing PITTA Herbal Complex—with potent Boswellia and Turmeric (irritation fighters), and Coleus oil (a blemish banisher).
  • soothing Chamomile, Comfrey and Witch Hazel extracts.

This softly floral scented body wash is wonderful for sensitive and all skin types.

Revive and Shine Hydrating Shampoo (VATA dosha) ($11 USD) — This gentle shampoo hydrates even the driest of hair, with traditional Amla, Sugar Cane, and Coconut extracts to replenish all that is lost. It’s a moisture infusion for thirsty VATA hair. Extra mild—thanks to a sugar-based cleanser—it’s also lightly conditioning, making hair feel both thicker and more manageable. (Plus, it’s safe for color-treated hair.) Here’s how:

  • VATA Herbal Complex —pure hydration from Coconut juice and Sugar Cane, with potent Amla (an antioxidant “super fruit”).
  • Barley protein and silica extract, to thicken hair and help curls stay curly.
  • antioxidant Green Tea extract and Vitamin E.

100% natural fragrance blend:  Organic Vanilla Oleoresin, Vanillin Natural, Ginger, Cardamom, Clove and Orange Oil Extracts and other essential oils.

This and the conditioner are super hydrating.  They also smell so yummy!  These are gentle for every day use.

Night Light Night Cream
Night Light Night Cream

Night Light Night Cream (KAPHA dosha) ($35 USD) — This weightless cream is what you need to restore the balance by night. It’s light in texture but rich in benefits, an extra, overnight boost to reduce redness and even skin tone. It’s conflict resolution for KAPHA skin: hydrating with Omega rich nutrients, but no excess oils. Banishing the red, and blemishes, with potent oils like Coleus and Neem. And keeping signs of aging at bay. Here’s how:

  • KAPHA Herbal Complex—with calming Soapnut bark, plus Neem, Coleus and Vitex oils (all foes of the bacteria that cause blemishes).
  • peptide-rich Regenerating Complex—made to keep signs of aging small.
  • light but highly hydrating Cupuacu butter and Jojoba oil.

100% natural fragrance blend: Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Vanillin Natural and other essential oils.

I love a lighter night cream.  This one is perfect for the summer because even though it does hydrate, it helps calm the skin and does not leave it greasy.  By the morning, my face is soft and glowing!
