    Ok I try avoid looking at myself as much as possible but I've noticed my skin on legs and arms is super dry I normally put baby oil on after my shower but this is just being drank by my skin. I drink loads of water and a max of 1 coffee a day (sometimes none, coffee can dehydrate you) any tips on a good cream for me?
    And while we are talking lotions loose skin!!!! I've Been recommended nip fab tummy tuck cream (ment to be good, I've been using the bust cream and that seems to work) problem is it's £20 for it (small tube) so was wondering if anyone has a cheaper alternative as I hate spending money!!! Maybe a tried and tested type posts! Xxxx

    I know what you mean!!

    I've always always had skaley skin on my legs...started using the Vaseline Intensive Rescue Cream which I picked up for under £2.00 in Wilkinsons a few months ago. 2 applications and my legs were silky smooth. Be warned though, it is incredibly thick. Takes FOREVER to sink in, but I found was fantastic applied an hour before bed. My skin was then very easy to take care of after that with just normal bog standard moisturisers. I still apply it once a month or so just for a bit of a pamper. The pot is going to last me forever at the rate I use it.

    For the rest of my body, I use a mixture of the Palmers Massage Lotion and The Weleda Pomegranate Oil. Both leave my body hydrated and silky :)

    What that works VERY well for super dry skin is Boots Botanics Nourishing Body Butter. It smells like sun cream and feels greasy at first, but it REALLY works. I had eczema last year during the winter and this stuff actually cleared it up. It has grapeseed oil in it, which is what I think makes it so moisturising. It comes in a big tub and lasts ages. You have to warm it in your hands before putting it on so it 'melts'. It costs about £5-£6 for a tub.

    I love Palmers body butter, cocoa butter is great for the skin. I also the Sanctuary Spa products from Boots, I get the scrub,then the soak and then body rub for after totally gorgeous!

    I also use Lush products which are heavenly! And I've always got Bio Oil in the house :)

    Palmers do a cocoa butter specifically for firming up skin after weight loss , I find it has been fantastic for me :)
