Has winter wreaked havoc on your skin. Are your hands and lips all dried out? A little dab of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream is just what the doctor ordered. I just sampled some and immediately my hands and mouth felt moist and smooth

Created in 1957 by a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari who first introduced his now famous moisturizing cream to Japan, the product was inspired bya woman long-suffering from dry, cracked skin. She was tired of using petroleum-based skin care products that she found to be greasy, messy and ineffective. Through a specially developed manufacturing process he created a highly concentrated glycerin-based, vitamin-enriched moisturizing cream that could replenish lost moisture without any greasy mess. Since then Yu-Be has gone on to become one of the longest and best-selling skin care products in Japan today.

The cream contains glycerin, vitamins B2 and E and sodium hyaluranate and sells for $24 at,,,,, Whole Foods, Urban Outfitters and other outlets.

It also works magic on cuticles, cracked heels, calluses, face and body. It does however have a bit of an industrial scent that diffuses fast.

Beauty is skin deep ergo the video we so thoughtfully attached might prove a helpful addition to your skincare regimen.
