Happy Skin For Winter

During the Christmas and winter months, my skin dries out and resembles something ugly and out of a horror story. It shrivels and cracks and hurts. And I mean it hurts. It’s uncomfortable and I get moody and well you get my disdain for the feeling.

I can give you about 100 ways to improve your skin during these months. From drinking more water, using less hot water on your skin, adding some baby oil to the bath and much much more. But what about a healing lotion and cream?

What about a product that gives you moisture and alleviates that uncomfortable feeling you get like I do because of the dryness?

One of the things I have noticed gets hit the worst is my feet. I am a feet hater. I have no love for the feet, only mine and babies. But I want to shove mine in mounds of socks and boots to hide the hideousness of them during these months. It’s again – something straight out of a horror story.

But my neck for some reason gets a dose of dry along with my elbows. So what am I doing to fight back? To not be the typical girl that runs upstairs and gets killed in the slasher story? Aka dry skin.

healing cream

 

My weapon. Carmex Healing Lotion and Cream.  These products are pretty amazing. I slap (and I more mean like coat and slather in high amounts) this on my feet, add socks and go to sleep. My feet are slashing away at dryness as I sleep away in dreamland. Thank you sandman and Carmex. But I have to say that unfortunately I cannot use this on my neck. I’m not sure if it is because my skin in super sensitive, especially in my neck region or that it’s the eczema mixed with the evil doer of dry skin – but if I put this on my neck it feels like someone decided to brand me. Not pleasant.

The healing lotion:

A new solution to heal , soothe and moisturize your dry skin. This lotion is made using a patent pending process that delivers healing and moisturization without a greasy feel.

  • Use anywhere your skin feels dry
  • Daily use will protect skin and keep dryness away
  • Rich healing ingredients, including aloe and vitamin E, nourish and moisturize skin
  • Absorbs fast
  • Light, pleasant scent
  • Not tested on animals

The healing cream:

heals and repairs your driest, roughest skin. It is made using a patent pending process that delivers concentrated healing and moisturization.

  • Use on your driest skin, especially hands, feet, elbows and knees
  • 9 healing ingredients penetrate and help repair skin
  • Absorbs fast for a non-greasy feel
  • Has a light, pleasant scent
  • Concentrated
  • Not tested on animals

So let’s cover what these are great for. Yes, great for anywhere your skin is dry. Unless like me, you have sensitive skin and eczema. Then I recommend NOT using this product or any that is scented. That’s bad. It has no greasy feel. That is absolutely true. I love that. Especially on my feet. Can you imagine if it was greasy? I’m pretty sure every morning I’d be sliding head first down my stairs. The scent is light and is pleasant and has a bit of the typical smell (if you’ve used Carmex lip products, it’s that smell) but it’s not overpowering or even gross. I’ve never had someone say ‘eww you smell like Carmex’. That would suck.

All in all I would absolutely recommend this product and I would have to say that this Christmas, it would make a fantastic stocking stuffer!!!! Check out Where To Buy for places to get your Carmex products.
