Winter is so, so drying to your skin. Moving to Minnesota this past year has taught me that I need to take care of my skin during the winter. I always got away with applying lotion just here and there in Pennsylvania, but that’s just not sufficient here in the frozen North.
No matter what I did, I was struggling to keep my skin hydrated. My hands were especially tough-dry skin to the point where my knuckles might get cut and bleed! It was bad.
The main challenge has been finding a good lotion to apply. There are so many on the market and I’ve learned the hard way that what works for one person may not work for me. (Don’t look in the medicine cabinet-there are DOZENS that have been abandoned until it warms up a bit).
Thankfully, Lubriderm® reached out to me, and when it did it was like the winter sky parted and the sun shone down again. With just a few applications my body, especially my hands, was back to feeling soft and all hints of dryness were gone!
Why do you need lotion?
During the winter when layering is top of mind, remember that our skin is the largest and most important layer to prioritize for care and protection. As the heater turns on we’re also pulling the humidity and moisture from the air, which means we’re also drying out our skin. Add to that the many times a day you wash your hands (especially during flu season) and it’s likely you’ll experience even more dryness on your hands. Lastly, if you aren’t layered well enough (which let’s face it happens ALL THE TIME) when it’s -10º out the exposure to the cold can dry out your skin even further.
How do you find the right lotion?
Finding a lotion that’s suitable for everyone in the family can be a challenge. From my dry hands to my daughter’s sensitive skin and even to my son’s itchy back, we have different needs. It also has to absorb into the skin so there aren’t lotion prints all over the house, and most importantly it has to help retain moisture. Lubriderm® Advanced Therapy lotion can be your first layer of defense against the dry, cold winter (and really works!). It adds a layer of protection to your skin that helps seal in moisture and allows you to do all the things you need to do (all those dishes, cleaning, and daily chores) without your hands suffering.
See for yourself how Lubriderm® can be your first layer of defense against winter dryness. It’s available at Walgreens for only $7.49 a bottle!
Now my skin feels summertime great! All I need now is some sunshine.
