How do you hydrate dry skin?

Shea butter ingredient visual

Have you ever wondered why your body skin is so dry? Our bodies are composed mostly of water—about 55% for women; closer to 60% for men. Exercise, perspiration, pollution, sun, and cold weather can deplete the body of this precious moisture, resulting in dry skin that is often flaky and itchy. Like a plant that needs water to grow and thrive, the body needs moisturizing products to stay youthful-looking: soft, smooth, and supple.

Clarins has the best skincare routines for every inch of body skin. These plant-infused formulas are targeted to each woman’s specific concerns: deep hydration, cellulite-fighting, toning, smoothing, energizing. Choose yours depending on your age, treatment goals, and the season.

Before applying a body moisturizer, use an exfoliator for dry skin to eliminate dead, dull surface cells. Follow with the Clarins Body Oil for your key concern: toning, contouring, or deep relaxation. Take a few tips from The Clarins Experts to learn exclusive Application Methods that visibly reduce water retention to promote a sleeker silhouette. Exercise daily, drink plenty of water, and eat well to give your body all the nourishment it needs to look and feel its best.

01What’s the best way to exfoliate body skin?

Dry spots, roughness, itchy skin. Exfoliation for dry skin is the answer! Once or twice a week, take a few minutes in the shower to slough off dead cells, dry skin patches, and impurities with Clarins Tonic Body Polisher. This revitalizing body scrub—with essential oils of Rosemary, Rosewood and Mint + gentle Sugar crystals—polishes away dull, flaky surface cells and pore-clogging debris while respecting the skin’s delicate hydrolipidic film. Leaves skin smooth, luminous, and refreshed…perfectly prepped for the moisturizer or lotion to follow. Every body’s ultimate glow-getter! Clarins Tip: Apply from shoulders to toes. Rinse well and finish with a spray of cool water.

Alternate with Exfoliating Body Scrub for Smooth Skin. This creamy body scrub—formulated with naturally exfoliating Bamboo powder, and extracts of soothing Mimosa Tenuiflora and nourishing Shea butter—gently smooths away dry cells, flakes, and impurities for velvety soft skin. Smooth, firm, silky and refreshed, skin is ready to soak in all the benefits of your Clarins body beauty routine.

02What is the best lotion for dry skin?

Once out of the shower, your skin is expertly exfoliated, soft, and free of dull, dry cells—perfectly prepped for the moisture that comes next. Clarins offers a range of deeply hydrating creams and lotions for every body beauty concern.

For a luxurious cocooning experience, discover recently reformulated Moisture-Rich Body Lotion. Its melting texture is formulated with 88% natural ingredients—including nourishing Shea butter, soothing Organic Raspberry water, gently exfoliating Tamarind pulp acids, and visibly firming Organic Oat sugars—that soften and intensely hydrate even very dry skin for long-lasting protection against the dehydrating effects of sun, cold, heating and air-conditioning. The aromatic essences of Clarins’ pure plant extracts elevate the senses to a total feeling of well-being.

03How to get rid of dry skin?

The amount of moisture your body skin needs varies with age, the climate…even your menstrual cycle. Exposure to water that is hard, or has an acidic pH, can also dry out the skin. Get into a good daily body beauty routine by smoothing on Moisture-Rich Body Lotion after shower or bath. Or opt for Clarins’ intensely hydrating Tonic Moisturizing Balm. Formulated with soothing Aloe Vera, comforting Shea butter, and nourishing essential oils, this invigorating balm instantly relieves dryness to leave skin satin-smooth, while refreshing the senses with aromatic essences of Geranium, Mint and Rosemary.

For skin that is losing suppleness and tone, reach for Clarins’ signature Tonic Body Treatment Oil. Formulated with 100% plant extracts—including aromatic essential oils of Geranium, Mint and Rosemary—this lightweight formula visibly firms, tones, and improves elasticity, helping to reduce the appearance of stretch marks resulting from pregnancy and weight loss. Hazelnut oil locks in moisture to keep skin smooth and silky all day long. Fine, preservative-free formula won’t stain clothes. Apply morning and/or evening after your shower.

04Does Clarins have targeted treatments for dry hands and feet?

Sun, heat, pollution, cold—your hands are out there every day, exposed to external aggressors that leave them rough, dry, chapped, and prone to premature signs of aging. Clarins’ emollient-rich Hand and Nail Treatment Cream nourishes, softens, and conditions hands, cuticles, and nails. This lightweight, deeply hydrating hand cream—with nourishing Shea butter, Sesame oil, and Myrrh extract—forms an invisible protective glove that shields skin from the elements. Use this lightweight, non-greasy formula throughout the day for soft, comfortable, younger-looking hands.

Want soothing relief for tired feet? Experience the walking on clouds feeling of Foot Beauty Treatment Cream—a rich moisturizing cream that nourishes and softens rough, dry skin with soothing Cashew Nut oil and Shea butter; helps relieve tension and fatigue with Arnica extract; and conditions dry toenails and cuticles with fortifying Myrrh extract. The silky texture melts into the skin with no oily residue. Just put your feet up and say aah. Clarins Tip: At the end of the day, massage your feet and ankles with Energizing Emulsion—a refreshing, lightweight lotion that soothes, tones and revs-up tired feet and legs. A refreshing blend of Chamomile, Basil and Bitter Orange essential oils promotes a feeling of lightness and relaxation, while hydrating and softening dry skin. Lightweight texture can be applied throughout the day—even over pantyhose.

05What is the best body serum for maturing skin?
