Dry, crackly, irritated skin is your body’s way of sending an SOS signal. These symptoms, most commonly known as the “Winter Itch,” are often a result of Xerotic Eczema, a condition caused by excessive water loss from the top layers of the skin.

When it comes to Xerotic Eczema an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The dermatologist developed skin care brand, Sebamed, has launched an Anti-Dry Collection with head-to-toe products formulated at pH 5.5, the exact pH of hydrated, healthy skin. Incorporating these moisturizing miracles into your daily routine can optimize skin’s protective barrier to retain moisture during dry weather and repel environmental irritants that exacerbate dry skin.


For long days out on a coldy, windy day this is a must have. This time of year I love snowshoeing and sledding with the kids but after a day out playing in the snow my face always feels a bit tender. After my first snowshoe trip this year my skin was definitely feeling the effects of the icy cold wind. I used the Sebamed Anti-Dry Night Intensive Cream after I washed my face and it felt like heaven. My skin absorbed it quickly and felt so hydrated. I woke up the next morning and my skin looked great and no wind burn! This is definitely a must have this winter.

Sebamed Anti-Dry Night Intensive Cream $23.95
Recover and restore your skin after a long day. This cream is rich in phytosterols (3%), jojoba oil and glycerin to protect, smooth, calm and regenerate the skin without clogging pores. The intensive and rich properties of this Night Cream stimulate the skin’s own renewal process overnight for fresher skin by morning. The pH value of 5.5 promotes the skin’s own acid protective barrier against dehydration and irritants. Dermatological tests have proven that Sebamed Anti-dry Day Cream used in combination with the Night Cream can restore the essential moisture balance of dry skin.


All 3 of my kids have sensitive skin and this time of year its a constant battle to keep their skin from getting dry and itchy. I started using the Sebamed Anti-Dry Wash Emulsion and after the first use noticed a huge improvement. My youngest had really itchy skin with dry patched and after the first bath with this his skin was improving. After 3 days my kids all have soft, hydrated skin without any dry, itchy patches. A great body wash for anyone who deals with dry, itchy skin in the winter months.

Sebamed Anti-Dry Wash Emulsion $22.95
Replenish and balance moisture content to relieve dry, irritated skin with its amino acid and lipid-enriched formula. This soap-free and nutrient-rich formula works to hydrate and restore the skin’s equilibrium, leaving skin smooth and supple.
