Winter Skin Care

I have dry skin. I have had dry skin since birth and every winter it gets 10 times worse.  I drink water, probably not enough, but try to hydrate from the inside out never the less.  I have bought countless body washes, body lotions, body creams and serums.  When the temperature drops below freezing, it does not matter what I drink or put on my body, my skin is cracking and painful.

I will tell you what helps me deal for longer than 6 hours and list some websites below that have given good advice.

For my hands: Neutrogena Intensive Hand Cream and Merle Norman’s Super Lube. Both of these are extremely emollient and take a bit of time to soak in but work for hours.

For my body: Recently, I have started making my own sugar scrubs and love them! I use raw sugar, grape seed oil, almond oil and honey (for added fragrance I use pure vanilla or lavender oil).  After showering I love coconut oil but have to usually have something with shea butter too, for the added moisture.

These websites have good tips and recipes. It is more cost effective to make the products yourself but if you find something on the shelf that works and helps with the winter blues, go for it.

About Felicia

Hello, I am Felicia and I am one of the founding members of Health Now, Wealth Forever. When we came up with the concept of starting our family business, I was enthusiastic just to spend time working on a project with my family. But, as we have grown and expanded, my passion for educating myself and others - about alternative health options and changing the way we view finances and life - has taken over. While I admit I am not the healthiest of our group, I am working on it daily and hope that the articles I write help you to work on it with me. Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to open our minds and yours to an alternative way of look at health, wealth and life!
