Here’s a dry skin remedy that will cost you less than $10 and works in less than two weeks — Curel Skin Nourishing Lotion ($7.99). My intern Elizabeth wanted to fix her rough patches, so we decided she should give this shea butter-based product a try. Now she can’t wait for the weather to warm up so she can show off her legs. “My overall skin texture is smoother to my touch, and specifically the areas of dry skin (my elbows and knees) visibly appear less cracked and healthier.” She also found that the formula is gentle enough to use on her face. “I applied a light layer on my face, paying particular attention to the skin above my eyebrows and around my mouth. Within a day, my itchy skin in these areas was gone, and I saw a huge difference in the appearance of my skin,” she said. Another deal breaker is that the lotion doesn’t leave behind a sticky residue or make skin feel greasy. This drugstore buy has earned itself The Beauty Girl stamp of approval.
