Those of us with dry, itchy skin know that the colder months just make it worse. When the cold air hits my skin it feels like it dries out almost immediately – feeling tight and itchy. Eventually the exposed skin gets that white look to it, sometimes cracking and, in the worst cases, bleeds. Unfortunately, I’ve been there. Double unfortunately I need to be very cautious of the products that I use on my skin because of a sensitivity to fragrances. Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion Fragrance Free is said to go even further than basic moisturizing as far as healing dry skin by using a special blend of humectants and healing micro-droplets of Vaseline Jelly. The Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion is clinically proven to heal dry skin in 5 days and keep skin healed for 3 weeks. I’m accepting that challenge.
In the evenings I like to kick back and relax. That time is usually when I do the most for my skin in terms of moisturizing. Relaxing starts by grabbing a shower after the kids have gone to bed. When I get out I slather on a lotion all over my body and then stick on gloves and socks (my hands and feet are always the worst), pop on a show and sip my hot cocoa. I leave the gloves on just for about an hour and then the socks through the night (my feet freeze!). Even after the first night I noticed an improvement in the way my skin looked, even through the next day. By evening moisturizing definitely needed to happen again, but I didn’t feel like I needed to do it throughout the day. After each night the time span that my skin felt moisturized grew longer.
After the 5 days ended I was impressed that I didn’t feel like I needed to continue moisturizing because my skin felt so good and actually looked so healthy and supple. Obviously I don’t want to go back to dry skin in any way, so I am continuing with the evening moisturizing process.
