For those of us with dry, sensitive skin, season changes undoubtedly cause a plethora of issues. As the weather gets colder and the boots and coats come out of hiding, I experience them at full-speed. Scaly legs? Check. Itchy, inflamed arms? Double check. I’m always looking for something to use in the shower that exfoliates without irritation, and the made-in-France Gentle Body Scrub by Avène has proven to be my skin’s new savior.
