As you know, I live in Minnesota. Winter in MN is synonymous with dry skin. I go through lotion like a chocoholic goes through Hershey Kisses! My hands are constantly being slathered with lotion. Vaseline Intensive Rescue done just day during these dry days of winter.
About 6 yrs ago my oldest daughter was dealing with a severe case of dry cracking hands and a friend of mine gave her a bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care. That change everything about her discomfort. She’s slather the lotion on before bed and slip on her “lotion gloves” and head to bed. This became the go-to gift for my daughter.
Just when I thought winter was winding down, the snow picked up and the dry air loomed heavily here! Thankfully I’ve been using my Vaseline Intensive Rescue lotion throughout the day. I’m not really good at sharing, but since it’s so dry at my work and we’re doing a lot of changes, I’m constantly washing and drying my hands. I’ve decided to bring my lotion to work and leave it there. We’ve been dealing with so much dust, and the air is so dry, we’re all dealing with cracked, dry, chapped hands.
Before I moved to Minnesota, I hadn’t paid much attention to using lotion on the rest of my body, but my legs, I tell ya, have had a rough go of it this year. I’ll be at work and realize I’m rubbing my thigh because it’s so itchy and dry.I need to get in the habit of putting lotion on before I get dressed to go to work to avoid that situation. Ok here’s a funny example of why dry skin can be embarrassing. About a month ago at work I was walking a guest to a product and he was pretty chatty. He neglected to see that I was married. He introduced himself to me and shook my hand. Then as he was asking me out to dinner I started rubbing my leg, but it looked like I was wiping my hand of his handshake. So not only did I turn him down because I’m married, but I gave him the impression that his handshake was gross. Nice.
The Dry Skin Patrol is comprised of Hot In Cleveland star Wendie Malick, celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jessica Wu, and 3 real women, bloggers Kailani, Kari, and Michelle. The women were searching the Web for a solution to their dry skin and were rescued by Vaseline. One of their stops was right here in Duluth, MN. Wish I would’ve known when they were going to be here, I would’ve snuck on the “set”. *wink*
