It’s that time of year. The weather turns cold, we anticipate the snow and winter hits us full on. One of my very least favorite things about the season is how hard it is on my skin! The combination of that super harsh air outside along with indoor heat can really dry out your skin due to the lack of humidity in the air. The worst part is when the skin gets really dry it can even break open and crack.
I find it harder and harder to deal with that dry skin every year. I do my best to keep my skin moisturized, especially my hands, because I hate to develop splits on my fingers from the dry skin. It looks terrible and it hurts!
This year, I’m giving Aquaphor Healing Ointment a try. Here’s a little about it:
Trusted by dermatologists, Aquaphor Healing Ointment provides the effective care that your very dry, chapped, or irritated skin needs. Specially formulated to create an ideal environment that protects to help heal your skin, it’s also free of fragrances, dyes and preservatives, making it gentle for sensitive skin.
What I like about the Aquaphor Healing Ointment is that it is nice and thick and feels like it is really putting up a barrier on my skin. It is very long lasting and I don’t feel like I have to re-apply every 20 minutes like I often do with some hand lotions. I also appreciate that it is fragrance-free. The one thing that takes a bit to get used to is the oily feel. On the one hand it is an unusual feeling, but on the other hand it makes me know that there is that barrier up on my hands!
The other thing I’m loving is the Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect. It both soothes lips that are already dry or chapped and also protects them from the elements. PLUS it has broad spectrum SPF30. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the sun isn’t strong! I slather this on my lips before I go out to walk the dog in the morning and evening and I can tell that it is really protecting my lips!
