If you are like me, you probably love all the perfumed body products, like the products from Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Work. The fragrances are so lovely, especially when you layer the shower gel, lotion and body spray. Unfourtunatly, if you have dry skin, you may need to trade your favorite fragranced shower gel for a body wash better suited for dry skin.
When you are looking for a body wash for dry skin, look at the ingredients listed on the back label. Ingredients are listed from the greatest to least amount contained in the product. If the first two ingredients are water and sodium laurel sulfate, then that is what makes up most of your product. Sulfates are used in many cleansers and shampoos, they are detergents and help products to foam up. Unfortunately, they can dry the skin by stripping the protective lipids from the skins surface. However, products that use sulfates in combination with conditioning agents and emollients will help to prevent the skin from becoming too stripped. If you have dry skin, choose a body wash that has an emollient or moisturizer as the second and/or third ingredient. Look for ingredients like petrolatum, cocoa butter, jojoba butter, and natural oils. Most Cleansers will have some sulfates, the trick is to find a shower gel that has sulfates lower on the list of ingrediants. There are products that have sulfates as the third or fourth ingrediant.
Olay Body Wash plus Body Butter Ribbons
I like Olay Body Wash Plus Ribbons jojoba butter. Jojoba butter is a nice moisturizer and although it is half way through the list of ingredients, Petrolatum and Mineral Oil are in the top three ingredients before any sulfates.
Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti Aging Body Wash
Water,Petrolatum and Mineral Oil are the top three ingredients before any sulfates. Olay Total effects contains niacinamide which helps to prevent skin from losing water, and also helps to stimulate circulation in the skin. Studies have shown that it also improves the appearance of wrinkles, skin discolorations and reduces redness and improves skin elasticity.
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash
Natural oils and emollients, to help replenish skin’s natural moisture. It’s lightly fragranced, soap free, dye-free and hypoallergenic so it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin
