Not a day goes by that someone on staff doesn't ask me what I use to cure MY dry skin (I guess it's the same feeling of confidence you get in the answer when you ask the doctor what SHE takes). Well, here goes: St. Ives Restoring 24 Hour Moisture Advanced Body Moisturizer. It's not fancy, but boy does it work; and I admit, I'm a sucker for the barely-there baby scent. It truly fends off flakiness around the clock especially if you slather it on fresh out of the shower. And for those of you all-natural types (I'm one too!), you'll be glad to know that it containes no parabens, phthalates or animal ingredients. I love the stuff. And at only $5 at drugstores, you will too.
