No matter how much water I drink, I have dry skin. Both on my face & body. It is a problem connected to my skin barrier which finds it hard to lock moisture in. However, I have spoken about my face care so many times, but barely ever talked about my at home body skincare.
What I have found works best for my body skincare is dermocosmetics. The reason is dermocosmetic products are clinically developed with attention to specific common needs a skin may have. Also the formulas are developed with thermal water which has soothing and balancing effects.
I have tried many brands within the category. At the moment, I am using La Roche-Posay Lipikar Gel Lavant and Lait Lotion as an excellent range for dry skin – both for me and my whole family. It contains Niacinamide with a soothing action and shea butter, which delivers lipids and helps repair the skin barrier. However, other brands that tackle so well with dry body skin are Avene & A-derma, so I kind of rotate them whenever I feel like it.
