Beauty Finds: Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

Today I’ve got my favorite body cream of all time! Big words, I know, but very true. If you’ve got dry feet, elbows, knees or hands, you have got to try Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream. It’s got quite a history!

I discovered this product a few years back and apparently I was late to the party. Yu-Be has been around since 1957. A young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari in Japan created this for a woman with life-long cracked feet who was tired of petroleum-based products. It’s the number one selling skin cream in Japan to this day. It was even used on the summit of Mount Everest!

Now, I hike in flip flops. I know how weird that sounds, believe me. Blame Los Angeles for making me a little nutty. I had a red carpet event to go to one night and I had a sample of Yu-Be that someone gave me. I put it on my poor, dry heels and within minutes, it looked like I’d gotten a pedicure! I’ve used this on all of my celebrity clients for everything from sunburn to dry patches to heels to cuticles to scaly necks. I’ve even used this on stars after cosmetic surgery. (No, I’m not telling you who.)

Yu-Be is always in my makeup kit and in my bag. When I have to fly, I bring the lip balm since it’s not liquid. Still works wonders.
