When you're looking to show a little -- or a lot -- of skin in a slinky top, the last thing you want is dryness and flakes getting in the way of your glow. Scrubs and lotions can help you shed dry, peeling skin so you'll look smooth and radiant from head to toe.
Scrub a Dub Dub
If flaky patches of skin are holding you back from rocking your fave body-baring dress, suds up with a body scrub that uses chemical and manual exfoliants. "Real Simple" likes DermaDoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Body Scrub because it uses lactic acid and micro-beads to scrub skin smooth, while leaving it soft.
Seal in moisture and make skin baby smooth by slathering on a rich body lotion while skin is still slightly damp from your shower. The editors at "Cosmopolitan" suggest Curel Ultra Healing Moisturizing lotion because it's rich and creamy and hydrates even the driest skin, thanks to hefty doses of shea butter, glycerin and eucalyptus extract.
Customized Skin Smoother
To battle dry, flaky facial skin, try using a scrub two to three times a week to make skin silky smooth. "Allure" editors like Avon Anew Clinical Advanced Dermabrasion System because you can customize the level of scrubbing intensity. You can start by turning the cap to level 1, which releases a low dose of crystals, and gradually increase to level 4, which releases maximum exfoliators to slough skin.
Once all of your flakes have vanished, supercharge your moisturizer by adding hyaluronic acid capsules. Philosophy Replenishing Hyaluronic Acid/Peptide Capsules are an "InStyle" editor's pick because the capsules give your everyday moisturizer more hydrating and skin-smoothing power.
