Tkoskin.com has some nice smelling smooth body butters, though some are overpriced

Coconut oil mixed with herbal oil or olive oil is perfect for my skin, especially in winter weather

I've been using Shea Moisture Olive Oil & Green Tea lotion...love it, very moisturizing but it is so thick and it's hard to get out of the bottle.

If you can find it, try Dermasil Oil Free Daily Retinol Facial Cream, sold so far at the Dollar Tree.

You shouldn't use anything store bought unless it's a Shea Moisture product. Most of the chemicals in those products are drying. If they have sulfates, put it down.


I've had fantastic results with a mix of babbasu, jojoba, olive and marula oils.

I use Nivea Extended Moisture mixed with coconut oil & vitamin E oil. Sometimes I also use a mixture of african shea butter. I heat the shea butter in the microwave to soften the texture, then I put in vitamin e oil, almond, oil, and palmers coco butter lotion.

Washing every day in winter caused my skin to dry badly and even crack, even with the use of emollients.

Read about the protective barrier the skin makes and how over-washing can get rid of it and leave the skin vulnerable so I decided to wash every other day. Results gained.



Nothing wrong with that.  It makes sense if you have a skin condition or have a tendency to bathe in hot water.

I can attest that this stuff is pretty damn good.  I thought it would be watery but it is rich without being greasy.
