MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, and the house is filled with holiday cheer, but dry skin may have you feeling less than joyful. Cold temperatures outside and dry, indoor air combine to make winter a prime time for dry skin. Specially formulated with humectants and emollients, AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream helps skin attract water as well as retain its own natural moisture. The triple-action alpha-hydroxy therapy smooths, repairs and softens even the toughest dry skin, so you can check "soft skin" off of your holiday beauty wish list.


 "The holiday season is one of my favorite times of the year," said five-time Olympian and mom, Dara Torres. "I moved to the East Coast earlier this year and love experiencing the changing seasons, but the skin challenges that accompany them—not so much. Throughout the year I keep my skin soft with AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, but the cold, dry winter air creates the need for more intense hydration. The richer Ultra Hydrating Body Cream is perfect for keeping even my driest spots, like hands and feet, soft and hydrated."

About AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care

AmLactin® moisturizers contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are effective at exfoliating and hydrating the skin. AmLactin® formulas also contain emollients and humectants that help retain the skin's natural moisture and draw water to the skin so it looks and feels soft and smooth. The AmLactin® Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care line includes AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion, AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream for severe dry skin (formerly AmLactin XL®) and AmLactin® Foot Cream.

AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream is specially formulated for severe, persistently dry skin areas that need extra attention. It contains the advanced, patented ULTRAPLEX® formula that gently exfoliates and is clinically proven to intensely hydrate for long-lasting moisture. With rich humectants and creamy emollients, AmLactin® Ultra provides serious relief.
