Itchy and inflamed skin requires more than hydration; it calls for special attention. Developed by dermatologists, this soothing cream is hypoallergenic, free of parabens and fragrances (read: safe for sensitive spots), and intensely moisturizing, thanks to its glycerin-packed formula.

L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil
With a formulation that’s more than 50 percent almond oil—along with peppermint and cameline oils—this silky emulsion melts into skin and leaves it smooth and supple, just as its name promises. Beyond its luxurious texture, the oil protects skin’s support tissue and stops it from losing elasticity (good-bye, stretch marks!)
Before you tuck in, treat yourself with this creamy potion featuring a therapeutic blend of organic essential oils (clary sage, cypress, patchouli, and ylang ylang) and nourishing cocoa seed butter. You can sleep in peace knowing that you’ll wake up to baby-soft skin.
There’s dry and then there’s painfully dry. If your skin falls into the latter camp, this extra-strength softener should have a permanent place on your bedside table. The ceramide-rich formula plumps up parched skin with moisture upon application and keeps it there for more than 24 hours.
To buy: $10 at drugstores.
