Sahara Skin: Products to Soothe and Repair Dry Skin

Written by Lesley Mirza

I am pretty lucky. Why? Because my skin never gets that dry–you know, that crazy itchy, wanna shred your legs feeling? I don’t experience that. And I have to admit that I rarely apply moisturizer to my body (guess I shouldn’t admit that, should I?). Once in a while I’ll haphazardly slap on a lotion or cream, but it’s not routine for me. My mother, on the other hand, has skin like the Sahara Desert (sorry, Mumsy). And the poor sweetie drenches her body in goo on a daily basis–almost bathes in it. But, no matter what she does, it stays insanely dry!

On my visit to Vancouver last fall (before the big move), I took along some goodies for her to try. I had received samples from the RoC Enydrial body collection and knew they were perfect for her–they are specially formulated by dermatologists for severely dry skin. She happily ran into the bathroom and immediately coated her legs in the Enydrial Moisturising Body Lotion. Returning to the living room, my mother had a smile on her face: her skin was already feeling more comfortable.

The RoC Enydrial dermatologic moisturizing therapy line compensates for dry skin’s two main deficiencies: primarily, the deficient cutaneous barrier, which allows for the evaporation of water and lipidic agents from the epidermis, and secondarily the lack of cellular cohesion in skin cells. Nothing is more uncomfortable than itchy, tight, dry skin. And for some people, nothing seems to soothe their skin. The RoC Enydrial product formulas are specifically adapted to create a protective film on the surface of the skin, while reinforcing cellular cohesion and reducing the loss of water; hence restoring skin’s optimum moisture levels. Say bye-bye to uncomfortable skin.

The line includes five products: RoC Enydrial Extra-Emollient Rich Shower Cream ($24), RoC Enydrial Moisturising Body Lotion ($24), RoC Enydrial Moisturising Face Cream ($24), RoC Enydrial Repairing Lip Cream ($7), and RoC Enydrial Hand Cream ($10).

Whether you’re battling the cold winter weather, or you have super-dry skin, I recommend you give these products a go, and so does my mother.
