It’s winter, I live in Canada and I’m pregnant. Three things that don’t exactly go together when it comes to having healthy, glowing skin. Growing up, I had the worst oily skin, for a few years after reaching adulthood, I had perfect, glowing skin. And now? My skin is so dry and so cracked, at times I feel like I’m 81 and not about to be 31.
I wish I could blame my current skin problems on it being winter in Canada and me being pregnant but the truth is my skin hasn’t been quite like it used to be in a very long time. I’ve struggled for a while with lotions, creams and soaps, trying to find what will work for me, what to avoid and what’s been causing my dry skin. I’ve never really been able to figure it out – until recently.
What I have been able to figure out is how to keep my skin hydrated and although my skin will never be 20 again, it doesn’t feel like I’m about to be an 81 year old woman any longer.
Vaseline has many products that I’ve tried and that have now become staples in my morning and night routines; they include:
- Vaseline Jelly
- Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Relief Repairing Serum
- Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion
- Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented
I’ve used this product for years and years. I’ve never been disappointed and have used it for diaper changes, sore skin above the lips, skin dryness and even burns. I’ve found it to be extremely effective and always keep a jar on hand.
Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Relief Repairing Serum: The Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Relief Repairing Serum has three unique and highly concentrated ingredients to moisturize and heal the skin. My husband who works in the restaurant industry has used this a few times on his hands and he’s noticed a very big difference. I have even used it on my feet after a long day walking and cleaning and it’s really helped heal my heels and keep my skin well moisturized.
Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion: Best for dry, dull and cracked skin this non-greasy lotion leaves skin feeling silky smooth and helps skin feel radiant. I’ve used this lotion for quite a while now on my growing belly and love how it keeps my belly feeling smooth and hydrated. I’ve also used it on my arms and legs; it smells amazing and keeps them feeling so smooth. It helps keep skin moisturized to help heal dry and dull-looking skin and absorbs extremely fast.
Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Unscented: Clinically proven to moisturize to heal very dry skin in 5 days. This is my all-time favourite out of the whole collection. Not only is this lotion unscented, but it’s also fast at healing dry, rough skin. It is appropriate for sensitive skin, which I find I have most days, and it absorbs fast to leave skin feeling non-greasy and hydrated. This repair lotion has really helped with my hands, especially after doing the dishes by hand daily – it’s been a wonder lotion!
Why is it so important to have dry skin care?
Skin is the largest organ in your body, you want to make sure you are taking just as good care of your skin as you are every other part of your body. You may be having dry skin for many reasons, which include: harsh winds, cold weather, dry air, hot showers, and even exposure to the sun. It’s extremely important to have the proper dry skin care to make sure your skin stays hydrated and healthy. If you cannot simply combat dry skin by drinking more water (which most people can’t) trying Vaseline products is a great way to heal. Vaseline starts healing dry skin instantly.
