Beat Dry Skin


By Marisa Belger for Completely You

I often find myself running my fingers across my 4-year-old’s skin, marveling at the silky softness that is a preschooler. My adult existence is far from supple. To keep my skin from morphing into that of rhinoceros, I beat back dryness with two key tools: a scrubby mitt -- kind of like an extremely rough washcloth -- and a sugar scrub. Some days I use the mitt. Some days I scrub.

When I choose to scrub, my scrub of choice is Faerie Made’s Lavender Shea Sugar Scrub. Like every beauty product that makes its way into my bathroom, this scrub is truly good enough to eat -- though I don’t recommend that. Made from a rich combination of cane sugar, brown sugar, shea butter, cocoa butter and jojoba oil, this scrub is a superstar multitasker, sloughing away dry patches and following up with intense moisturizing. And in true time-saving fashion, no follow-up lotion is necessary after a rubdown with this scrub.
