Body washes are a great help for dry skin

You may not realize that prolonged exposure to water in the shower or bath can leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. Water can deplete and impair the skin's natural mechanisms for retaining moisture and ultimately lead to dry skin. Some soaps or harsh cleansing agents, as well as chlorine and minerals contained in water, can worsen the dryness that’s created by washing. You can help protect your skin from the drying effects of water by using body washes that are uniquely formulated with moisturizers - they can immediately restore hydration as you clean.

Many of these products contain petrolatum, which is regarded as one of the best emollients due to its highly moisturizing and non-sensitizing properties. Body washes can provide effective cleansing while helping to guard the skin during a bath or shower by forming a protective layer on the surface of the skin to inhibit water loss. Find a formulation that’s thick, creamy and easily lathers while providing exceptional levels of moisturization - so there’s no tradeoff!
