Cool weather often means dry skin, but there are ways to still feel squeaky clean without robbing your body of the oils it so desperately needs as temperatures start to wind down. If your skin is like mine (meaning crazy sensitive and dries out easily), I recommend exploring these organic body washes that are moisturizing, gentle, and work damn well. While each one has its own unique qualities, all of them standout as being rockstars for cleansing without drying.
Chapped lips in cool weather are unpleasant yet manageable, but rashes, itchy skin, and a flaky scalp on top of dry lips? No, thank you. At one point last year, my skin was getting so dry I was tempted to just cut hot showers and body wash cold turkey, but that resolution only lasted until I had to shower again. Fortunately, being willing to change up my body wash game (and reduce my shower temp and time as much as possible) kept my skin nourished and hydrated on even the coldest days.

Because when is saying "no" to blueberries ever a good idea? On top of this body wash being an antioxidant powerhouse, it's also bursting with sophisticated lavender notes and packed with all-natural shea butter.
My boyfriend and I would legit have shower wars over who would get to use this last before we ran out. It smells uhhmazing, contains no harsh chemicals or detergents, and I love that it's packed with certified organic ingredients.
This shea body wash from Alaffia is super straightforward, and that's why I like it. No fancy scents, no unnecessary ingredients. Just pure shea love and gentle neem soap.
