Saving graces

Winter time, dry skin and pregnancy makes for one tricky combination. Dry, cracked, itchy skin would be the order of the day, and every night I would place myself in front of the television and lather myself top to bottom with the richest creams I could find amongst my extensive collection of body lotions and face creams. Especially the following products proved to be true livesavers. Itchy, cracked skin, be gone!

Sisley Restorative Facial Cream, rich in shea butter, lotus and vitamin A amongst others, was perfect for soothing and nourishing my face. I applied a thick layer, almost like a mask, and skin felt supple and hydrated. No anti-ageing, no radiance boosting, just plain old hydrating, which was all I needed. As the cream has such a soothing effect, I still use it after the Origins Out of Trouble Mask or the Radical Age-Defying Exfoliating and even slapped it on last weekend after a few hours too many in the sun. Works like a charm! Followed by the Apivita Hydration Serum or the Caudalie Nourishing Concentrate oil in the morning, and I was good to go!

Body-wise, the Kiehls Crème de Corps Soy Milk and Honey Whipped Butter and the Caudalie Vine Body Butter always fit the bill, pregnancy in winter time or happy summer days. Intensely hydrating and nourishing, these two would instantly relieve the itchiness and transform the sanding paper around my bones into silky, soft skin again. And their delicious scents weren’t too bad either…
