Although I can't say that this past winter was the coldest or the driest that I've ever experienced, but that doesn't mean that I came away unscathed... no matter what the weather holds, dry skin seems to be the norm around here - especially my hands and elbows!
This year I turned towards two great products from Carmex:
Carmex Everyday Hydrating Lotion and Everyday Healing Cream are a great one two punch when you're trying to get your skin back from the winter brink... and starting to turn your thoughts to pursuits that will get you down and dirty... like gardening and spring cleaning!
For me, I prefer the hydrating lotion as my go to product - while neither are greasy or overly fregranced, I find the scent of the lotion to be a touch less mediciny and it really works into my skin easily and quickly!
From the MyCarmex website, you can get an idea of what to expect from this great lotion:
Microemulsification. It’s the technical term for how we are able to make a hydrating lotion that is so moisturizing yet feels so greaseless. It is soothing, long-lasting and perfect for everyday use. We super-blend the high-quality ingredients of our exclusive formula so that deep hydration immediately soaks into damaged skin. You won’t feel a hint of greasiness, even right after you smooth it onto rough trouble spots.My mother-in-law really likes the hand cream - her skin is just that little bit dryer than mine and the hand cream is just a touch more intensive and it really works for her! I also choose it when I've been less kind to my own hands - over-washing them, using too much hand sanitizer or just when they feel extra dry... I also use the healing cream on my feet - especially my heels! I also use it on my elbows to keep them feeling soft and supple!
Once again, MyCarmex.com shares this with us:
Our rich cream goes through a patent-pending blending process that emulsifies it into a fast-absorbing formula that won’t wipe off on your clothes, immediately going to work helping to heal your most troubled spots—such as feet, elbows and hands.One lucky Acting Balanced reader (US only) is going to get their own Spring Care package consisting of one of each of these great products!
