This winter has been brutal. There’s really no way of sugar-coating that. I know some states have seen more snow than we have here in Wisconsin, but boy have we had some cold temperatures! And with cold temperatures comes dry air and with dry air comes extremely dry skin. It’s been a never-ending battle this winter. I can’t decide what’s been worse, all the colds + stomach bugs we’ve caught or all the dry itchy skin we’ve experienced!
(Can you tell I’m just so ready for winter to be done?)
It’s been rough. Until now.
How to Relieve Your Dry Skin:
1. Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream: This moisturizing blend of milk, coconut and almonds feels all kinds of amazing on your skin. This truly locks in moisture and we’ve seen first hand the improvements it’s made in Alea’s skin. Poor baby gets such horrible dry skin in the winter!
2. Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish: This one is my favorite, but Alea loves the scrubbing beads, so I generously let her use it as well! I love that it scrubs off any dry or dead skin and then combined with the Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream, makes my skin feel and stay silky soft. And the smell! Oh my goodness! It sure to wake you up in the morning!
3. A Humidifier: A humidifier is an absolute necessity if you live in cold, dry climate. All that static electricity and staticy clothes can be enough to make you lose your marbles, not to mention the dry skin you’ll also get as a result of a very cold winter. A humidifier will put moisture into the air and then you won’t shock your child or significant other every time you kiss them and your skin will thank you as well.
4. Lotion, Lotion and More Lotion: If all else fails, lotion up! I’ve heard fabulous testimonies from people who put lotion on when their skin is still wet from the shower. It sounds crazy, but I tried it this winter and I’ve definitely seen a difference!
I can’t even begin to tell you how ready I am to be done with this winter. We’re suffering from some serious spring fever around here. And I just might be planning on wearing flip flops on my day off trip to the coffee shop on Thursday when it’s forecasted to be over 50 degrees.
These hydrating skin tips most certainly apply to the summer months as well. Sure, your skin isn’t as dry, but you’ll be showing off a little more skin in the summer, so you want to make sure your knees and feet and any other trouble areas are thoroughly moisturized!
