As much as I dread it, winter is definitely coming. I've noticed that my skin is getting drier, especially now with the heat turned on. I spent the weekend at my mom's last weekend and really felt parched because they heat with wood. I can't stand dry feeling hands and know that I need to combat that sandpaper fingers feeling with a good lotion that sticks around on my skin for longer than 5 minutes. I hate greasy lotions and like to feel that the lotion I use is still providing protection as I go through the day.
Carmex offers two lotions that will fit the bill to help keep my skin hydrated. Their Healing Lotion is a daily lotion. It contains aloe and Vitamin E to nourish your skin. Sometimes you need a Healing Cream though, to repair dry, rough skin. This is the type of lotion I would use on places like my elbows, which tend to get rough and dry. Remember too, that your skin is your body's largest organ. Don't let your skin care go because germs love a good opening to come in and set up shop. Keep your skin supple and avoid dehydration, which can lead to skin breaks. Happy skin is hydrated skin!
