Body cream/lotion for dry/ashy/sun damaged skin

Hi all-


I am searching for a body lotion to help my dry skin. I have used various lotions and none of them seem to keep my skin moisturized. I exfoliate my body a couple of times a week and also dry brush. I put lotion on my skin right  after showering to increase moisture. Nothing seems to work. I know what to do. I just need the right product to work with.


I really need a lotion to combat my dry skin and bring it back to life. My hands, arms and legs look way older than I am. I have used OTC lotions with AHAs, but cannot find my holy grail. (Amlactin, Cerave, Hempz, etc).


Lotions and creams feel good when I put them on, but as soon as it sinks in my skins looks dry again. I realize that my skin is sun damaged, but is there a serum/oil/cream/ lotion or combination of things that work for you? Do you also have a preferred sunscreen that works wonders? All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks for your help.

Hi, I too have dry skin issues like you. And I think you need a good moisturizing cream that gives you instant and lasting hydration. I have been using Cetaphil moisturizing cream for more than one year. And I am extremely satisfied with the result. This #moisturizing body cream helps to improve the resilience of the skin and strengthens the skin barrier. It is recommended by dermatologists and clinically proven to be effective on sensitive and dry skin

@pixtyn - You might want to try Nécessaire The Body Ritual .  I liked all the products in this sample kit.  Specifically, one of the products is a hyaluronic acid serum for the body which you follow with the body lotion.  Since hyaluronic acid dried out my face, I wasn't expecting positive results.  I was wrong!  What a difference it made to my dry body skin!  I'm on a no-buy right now, but it's on my Loves list. ❤
