Many do not see the benefit of to start an arsenal of individual body cans: indeed, most lotions, yoghurts, oils and other products are capable of providing the skin with only short-term comfort. We recently wrote that the market does not stand still, so if you want to get a working product, take a look at the list below. We are showing nine cans that can gently exfoliate, smooth and permanently moisturize the skin of the body.
Lotion for hardened skin CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion
Not the most popular on the Internet, CeraVe from the line for skin with keratosis is actually a real treasure for anyone whose skin is prone to dryness and flaking. In addition to the ceramides traditional for the brand, the pharmacy lotion contains salicylic acid, which is often put in ointments to prevent skin diseases: in moderate quantities, it can speed up the process of getting rid of peeling. The texture of the product is light and pleasant, so it does not require any special rituals, and a convenient can with a pump allows you to apply it without getting dirty around.
Aqua peeling for the body LadyKin Aqua Exfoliator for Body
The Korean brand LadyKin, which previously provided raw materials for popular brands like Missha and TonyMoly, also produces its own cosmetics, and with a clear penchant for experimentation. In particular, they have such a body peeling in a spray with a spray bottle: it needs to be applied to the desired area, wait a little and roll, as is the case with the rest of the classics of chemical exfoliation. The composition contains niacinamide, but papaya and pineapple extracts play the main role - exfoliation is very noticeable. We do not recommend applying after depilation or if you are sure that the skin on the body is prone to irritation or allergies (due to the generous amount of herbal ingredients).
Avè ne Akérat 10 Body Cream Intensive Moisturizing Body Cream
Another pharmacy product that provides simultaneous moisturizing and exfoliation due to salicylic acid in the composition. Also in the list of ingredients, urea is noticed - one of the most famous moisturizers that can make friends with skin prone to keratosis, dermatitis and other conditions requiring attention. Unlike the similar product CeraVe, it is not absorbed too quickly and leaves an uncritical sticky feeling - it is better not to use it in a hurry so as not to stain clothes, although the texture is light and pliable when applied.
Ultra-smoothing body complex Ultraceuticals Ultra Retexturising Body Complex
Expensive, large and rare in the cosmetic world, a jar containing a body product, the effect of which is noticeable from the first use. Exfoliation is difficult to call delicate: it contains as much as 7% lactic acid, so the lotion should not be applied to irritated skin. However, there are also enough soothing and moisturizing ingredients - there is hyaluronic acid, ordinary glycerin, and niacinamide. The product is quite liquid and practically weightless, so that an impressive bottle can be stretched for six to seven months of regular use. The result is smooth and nourished skin without painful brushing.
Shower Gel Dr. Jart + Ceramidin Body Wash
We warn you that you should not expect miracles from any rinsed-off products - especially from shower gels, which should perform exactly one function, that is, to cleanse. But if your skin dries out regardless of the season, perhaps the combination of aggressive components in bath products with hot water is to blame. It is better to get into the habit of taking a shower under warm or slightly cool water, and put a delicate oil or such a gel with ceramides on the shelf: it will not damage the lipid barrier and will support subsequent hydration.
Sesderma Azelac Face, Sculp and Body Lotion
The Spanish brand Sesderma has a versatile lotion that can be used on the face, body and even scalp - this product has the right cocktail of 2% salicylic acid and 5% azelaic acid, and it does an excellent job of preventing and reducing pre-existing inflammation. The form of the spray allows you to apply it on areas of the body with acne without inconvenience and questionable from the point of view of hygiene. If you do not mind the high consumption of a hundred-gram bottle, you can even arrange the procedure so as not to touch the inflammation with your hands once again - just spray and forget.
Shower gel with fruit acids Honey Bunny
So far, there are not too many budget products among non-stupid body products - this shower gel with fruit acids of the Russian brand Honey Bunny can be distinguished. What you need from a daily remedy: light exfoliation, a pleasant citrus scent and sane consumption. The gel is unlikely to be appropriate if you are looking for something miraculous or a jar for skin care with special features - however, if you need a product that will definitely cleanse well after a pool or swim in the sea, it may well replace products with aggressive surfactants.
Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating Cream
A diligent brainchild of the brand that can replace a mechanical scrub - again with salicylic acid. For a comfortable exfoliation, it is enough to use the product a couple of times a week, alternating with softer and more neutral gels and oils. It has an extremely well thought-out texture: there are no fatty components in the creamy exfoliant, so it is very easy to rinse off and does not leave a film. Not suitable except for those who do not like menthol - there is, however, quite a moderate amount of it. The cream does not irritate unpretentious skin, but the bright smell gives the right dose of vigor in the morning.
Weleda Skin Food Light universal nourishing cream
On the cosmetic market, you can find a lot of universal remedies that are needed just in case (sudden peeling, irritation, wounds, and so on). For the most part, they exist in compact formats, so they are more convenient to use on the face or small areas of the body. Perhaps the most versatile is the well-known Weleda Skin Food. This year, a light version of the bestseller appeared: the effect of nourishing and healing in place, but the layer of the product on the skin is much less felt.
