Winter skin care: 5 body must-haves

Community Nov 17, 2015 by Rani Sheen, Beauty Editor at The Kit Metroland Media

SWEET SCRUB

While crumbled cocoa and coconut shells slough off dry skin, cocoa butter and coconut oil soften (and make you feel as if you’re bathing in a vat of chocolate).

Fresh Cocoa Body Exfoliant, $54, sephora.ca

WELL OILED

A nicely formulated oil—like this luxe mix of camellia, sweet almond and plum-kernel oils—can restore lustre when applied on slightly damp skin.

Decléor Aromessence Nourishing Rich Body Oil, $68, decleor-ca.com

HELPING HAND

It’s a hefty investment, but this hand cream contains high-tech regenerating ingredients found in facial skincare, such

as green-tea stem cells. Bonus: It withstands several hand washes.

Amore Pacific Time Response Intensive Hand Renewal Crème, $100, Holt Renfrew

GENTLE WASH

Soap can strip skin of moisture, so swap it out for a rich shower cream. This one is boosted with sweet almond extract and oil.

Dove Purely Pampering Almond Cream with Hisbiscus, $6, drugstores

WET SHAVE

Things that foam can dry your skin. Avoid dinosaur-scaly legs with a shaving cream containing shea butter and vitamin E.
