  • Forget the body wash. Use Dove bar soap & moisturize with Curel Original right after you shower.

  • My secret is I keep a big pump of lotion in the shower and I slather it on my legs just after the water is shut off....while my body is still warm. BEFORE your pores close, if you get the moisture locked in you will retain more of the softness.
    It feels really weird at first, but you'll get used to it...and it works so much better.

  • I used 'cheap' body wash, suave sweet pea ( that's the only brand other than bbw that carries that scent that I've found) and I use aveno daily moisture, or Vaseline cocobutter lotion. My dry skin, isn't so dry anymore. I have to lotion every night, and then after i shoer, but it's worked for me.

  • I use OIay body butter ribbons and Cream Anglaise from Lush.   Cream Anglaise is pricey but it's really really good.

  • Moisture Therapy by Avon is awesome and the price couldn't be better. www.youravon.com/dhullum and just search under "moisture therapy" to bring up your options! Hope that helps!
