Stop dry, chafed skin in it’s tracks this winter with these three luxurious skincare finds.


Daylight savings time has passed, its dark when we leave work and the option of going anywhere without a jacket at this point is basically non-existent. These cues are exactly how we know it’s officially time to step up our skincare game to prevent the drying, itching, cracking effects that can come with the weather this time of year. It’s so important not to skip the step of moisturizing (damp skin—within minutes of getting out of the shower!) when it’s cold out. Of course, you could run to the store and pick up an industrial-sized bottle of Jergens to last you all season long. Or, you could try one of these more unique, luxurious skincare finds…

Obiqo Silky Body Butter with Marine Extracts and Sea Lavendar, $15.99


Obiqo is a New Zealand based skincare brand that is quite luxurious if I do say so myself. I’ve been slathering up with a heaping dose of the rich white cream for a few weeks now, and my skin has never loved me more.  It’s perfect for use on the whole body. The cream contains marine extracts, oils and botanicals—the perfect combination to turn skin into silk, even in the wintertime.

Arcona Pumpkin Body Lotion, $35


Right off the bat, pumpkin and body lotion are two of my favorite fall indulgences. Putting them together?! Why I hadn’t sought this product out earlier? This lotion is special for two reasons. First, let’s talk about the scent. Divine! Second, the pumpkin extracts and glycolic acid are great for the skin, as they work to improve  tone and repair sun damage. It’s light yet hydrating—I’m loving it! Just one word of advice: Do not use directly after shaving your legs.

Dr. Hess Udder Ointment, $9.99


Dr. Hess’s Udder Ointment is another fantastic find for use during the cold winter months. The name may be a bit off-putting, but the results are phenomenal! I’ve been using this cream on my feet for a couple of weeks and they are feeling smooth as ever. The cream is also supposed to work wonders for chapped, chafing skin as well as eczema. This is definitely something worth stocking your beauty cabinet with this winter!
