Beauty Closet: Winter Skin Care

 photo final2_zps031622ec.jpg

I am a secret skin care sleuth. I love digging into people’s bathroom cabinets to check out their go-to products, mostly via magazines and the internet (I’m not really snooping in people’s homes!) While my sister is an absolute make-up junkie who hoards products like nobody I’ve ever seen, I’m more tuned into the skin care sector. I figure if you have great skin, you can wear less makeup (and it’s less work.)
I’ve had a few rough patches with my skin (including last summer, ooph) and since finding a good magician/ dermatologist, have stuck to a regular regime fairly religiously. However, I still love finding new and cult favorite serums and potions. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been struggling with some angry red dry patches around my chin. Since I couldn’t get to the Dr. myself, I asked my mom if she could get any suggestions from her own derm. He mentioned that the dryness and cracking could be due to drooling while sleeping (seriously? gross!) I’m just hoping, and am fairly sure, my husband is not one of those people who lovingly watches his wife sleep. Because I must be a sight! I did a bit of research and remembered that Molly said Aquaphor was an absolute lifesaver for her dry, angry, red patches. I am amazed by this stuff! While I have always lathered Vaseline on my lips during the winter, Aquaphor is less sticky and seems to nourish the skin without congesting my pores. I’ve been swiping it on any dry skin (cuticles, feet, lips) throughout the day and night, and will be hoarding this magic potion throughout the winter. If you have any more cold/dry weather favorites please dish in the comments below!

  1. Gold bond ultimate skin therapy is fabulous for hands and any body parts that are dry. I have never tried on my face, but it is great for hands. It is not greasy and soaks in quickly. Hope you find it helpful.
