ugh! winter skin. :P

I hate this time of year. Low humidity, heater on, blowing dry air all day long. My skin is soooooo dry. I have a great facial moisturizer that I love, but the rest of me is like crepe paper. If I slather myself with lotion every morning, I'm OK, but most mornings I don't have time for that. Anyone have a quick fix?

Re: ugh! winter skin. :P

I feel your pain!! My hands are my problem. Yes, the dry air is awful. Plus I am constantly washing or using anti bacterial gel on my hands at work. (I work in an office)
For my body, I always use lotion after every shower/bath. This is year round and has made a huge difference!
As for my hands, sadly, no hope there. I do use lotion all the time and if doing dishes try to wear gloves. I know my mother always swore by Corn Huskers lotion and Safflower oil. I like a thick body butter.

same problem for me! When you have a bath - leave your skin slightly damp and pile on a thick moisturiser - I get vaseline intensive care in the truckload from Costco!!!

Try to do it regularly - I layer up in the winter and try to keep the heating low whenever possible.

Docteur Renaud makes a "Dry Oil" product which is quite nice - but the quantities you would need may make it a bit extravagant! You could look at getting a pure vitamin E oil from the pharmacy - it is really fine in texture and absorbs very well.

Good luck

Helen
