Fight Winter Itchy Dry Skin

My body skin usually is quite hydrated all year around, therefore I'm normally a light weight body lotion sorta person. Although the biggest problem for me in winter is that I get super itchy legs, especially around my chin and calves area. The dryness bothers me a lot as I don't like super heavy and thick moisturisers, but the light weight body lotion isn't nourish enough for the super dry winter skin.

I recently discovered the Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturising Lotion* to solve the problem. It claims to be an extremely effective formula that significantly decreases itchiness two minutes post application. Its Triple Oat formula combines natural colloidal oatmeal to moisturise and help relieve itchy skin. I found that the itchiness on my legs felt so much better every time after the application, also the product absorb really quickly and doesn't leave any greasy feeling on my skin. It quickly became my favourite winter body lotion!

I also tried out the Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream* too. I've been leaving this in my hand bag and use it after washing hands. The nourishing formula really fixes the dryness and tightness after washing hands with soaps, leaving your hands feeling super soft.

I was so glad I found something to stop the itchy dry legs in winter! Do you get itchy legs or arms in winter time? If so what's your favourite product to fix the problem? xx

  2. I always get itchy in winter. The best product I've EVER found is CeraVe Moisturising Cream, so thick and nourishing... Unfortunately it's so expensive on eBay! So I usually settle for Vaseline Coco Glow.
