To soothe dry skin caused by cold weather and hot showers, I love Bath and Body Works' Intense Moisture Body Butter. This thick, velvety product made with shea and murumuru butters lives up to its name--and its promise to hydrate skin for more than 24 hours. I've found it works best when applied to damp skin, and a little goes a long way.
Massage on knees or elbows to eliminate any roughness or slather on legs as an after-shower treat. At $15 for a seven-ounce jar, it's an inexpensive daily luxury. The butter comes in an array of scents but my favorite is the subtle and sweet warm vanilla sugar. --Dana Wilson
