Renew intensive skin therapy lotion is a clinically proven solution for moisturizing, healing and preventing even the driest skin and leaving skin softer & healthier all day, every day.

If you are a dry skin sufferer, you may be uncomfortable even letting others see your skin, let alone touch it. Renew® Lotion can help restore your confidence. It is no doubt the best body lotion for dry skin. Smoother, softer skin doesn’t just feel healthier. It looks healthier. Here are 8 Steps to relieving and preventing dry skin:

1.) Nix Hot Showers

Standing under steaming water for 30 minutes can be your own slice of heaven. But they itchy irritation that follows is far from celestial. That’s because long exposure to hot water can actually break down the lipid barriers in the skin and lead to moisture loss. To prevent this, scale back your shower time and shoot for 10 minutes, once a day, with warm—not hot—water. If you really need to warm up your core body temperature, try a bath with a capful of Renew Bath Oil instead. Your skin will thank you.

2.) Layer Moisture

To get lasting hydration and protection from the elements, layer your moisture just like you do your clothes. Start with Renew Bath Oil or Body wash in the shower, then layer on Renew Lotion right after you shower. Applying Renew Lotion to lightly damp skin helps your body capture some of the water still on skin and use it to hydrate.

3.) Stow Lotion Sinkside

Hand soap can be very drying, especially the cheap stuff in public restrooms. Keep a bottle of Renew Lotion in your purse and by your bathroom sink to remind you to moisturize after every hand washing. For extra dry skin, try switching to Renew Hand Soap.

4.) Grab Gloves

Don’t wait until your fingers are in danger of frostbite before donning a pair of gloves. The skin on your hands has fewer oil glands, which means it dries out faster in cold, dry weather. Gloves provide an extra barrier of protection from the elements. Before you put them on, add a quick layer of Renew Lotion so you can hydrate your hands on the trip to work.

5.) Show Lips Some Love

The skin on your lips is very thin and it’s constantly exposed to the elements. As a result, your lips can lose up to 10 times more moisture when compared to the rest of your body. Using a Sun Shades® Lip Balm with SPF 15 protection and moisturizers like jojoba oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth both outdoors and in.

6.) Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen

No matter how low the temperature drops, UV rays don’t take a holiday. Keep your skin protected, especially when hitting the slopes—those long hours in the sun can be amplified by glare from the snow. Apply one of the Sun Shades sunscreens 30 minutes before you go outside to enjoy broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays.

7.) Hook up a Humidifier

Humidifiers put moisture back into the air and help prevent your hair and skin from drying out. This is especially important if your home uses forced air. That constant stream of dry, hot air wreaks havoc on your skin.

8.) Keep Feet Comfy

If you’re not careful, winter can lead to some gnarly-looking heels and calluses. To sidestep a horror show come next spring, use a pumice stone to exfoliate feet in the shower and be sure to apply a thick layer of Renew Lotion both after you shower and before you go to bed each night. Cover feet with a cotton sock to help the moisture soak into the skin while you sleep. This keeps feet soft and helps prevent painful cracking and peeling.

  1. Absolutely perfect suggestions! People don’t realize how damaging the average shower/ready for the day routine can be. Men can be especially in need of a reminder to moisturize. Only recently are there “men” lotions. I intentionally make masculine blends for some of the lotions that I sell.

  2. I cannot get rid of my hot showers – especially (!!) during the winter months, it’s what I look forward to hhaahah. I’m not sure who takes showers for 30 minutes, but I definitely can’t stay in the shower for more than 10 minutes. I’m a quick showerer. I can’t wait to grab myself some Dream Cream from Lush (have you tried that stuff?) I swear my skin feels moisturized for 24 hours (no joke) after.

    • For real! It’s so hard to get out of the shower in the winter! I used to have a roommate that would take 45 minute showers. For us ladies covering the rent/bills, we were not too happy. (Nor did we understand what she was doing in there…)

      I haven’t heard of Dream Cream! I’ll have to check it out!

  3. Fabulous tips!!! Unfortunately its that time of year again when the heat is cranked and skin starts to dry from it so perfect Timing to read something like this 🙂
