No matter where you live, winter is having an effect on you. In Michigan the weather is nuttier this year than ever. We went from temperatures in the high 20’s to low 60’s in one day. Then it dropped back down to the 30’s and the winds started up. We have a big winter storm in the works. What this all means for us is that our skin is in the midst of a crisis. The dry heat in the house, the cold bitter winds outside, the temperatures changing!
Meijer Stores sent along some products that they know will be good to keep us better hydrated and help with our immediate needs as well as long term reactions to the weather. These are some of the best products that they carry and ones you should be considering for your weather woes.
CERAVE is so well known, we hear people recommend it constantly. Their facial cleanser and moisturizer are the first items I see when people I know ask for gentle skincare recommendations. CeraVe is more than just those two products. They have a world of products for your entire family.
CeraVe has a new line of Healing Ointments that you don’t want to miss out on. This comes in 3 sizes: 12 oz. jar, 5 oz tube, and .35 travel size. I’ve been using the Healing Ointment on my feet. I’ve got an upcoming trip in the works and went for a pedicure; my nail tech could not believe the difference in my feet. She was expecting the worst and kept telling me how much better my feet were. I’ve already got the travel size ointment in my travel bag. This has done wonders for the cracked heels I used to have. Plus I know it will come in use for my husband when he does some goofy thing on the trip and needs relief.
The Healing Ointment is thick but it melts into your skin. It’s easy to maneuver though a little hard to get out of the tube so I may have to squeeze hard but this is head to toe goodness. You know I love fragrance free products and CeraVe is just that plus they contain ceramides and hyaluronic acid.
While the CeraVe SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick is also packed for my vacation, I know the real use will come when the sun is out and the kids are running around. Even my little one who fights me putting sunscreen on her face is fine when I rub a stick on her face. Since it’s water resistant it’s going to help to refresh the kids when the sprinklers come out too. The CeraVe Hydrating Body Wash is another fragrance free product that’s also soap & sulfate free as well as paraben free. The ceramides in it help repair the skin barrier and the hyaluronic acid attracts needed moisture to the skin’s surface. Thank you CeraVe for making my life so much better. Here’s a link for $2 off CeraVe products to print and take to Meijer for redemption and great prices.
EUCERIN was also in my box of goodies. This included a very rich lotion and repair cream. Eucerin Intensive Repair Rich Lotion for Very Dry Skin is the one that my husband uses even more than I do. Fragrance free, dermatologist recommended and exfoliating while also intensively hydrating dry skin. This lotion contains Alpha Hydroxy and special moisturizing ingredients to add back the moisture you’ve lost due to the extremities of winter. This is great when you are just getting out of the shower since your skin will absorb it even better when your pores are opened there.
Eucerin Original Healing Soothing Repair Creme is richer than rich. It’s very thick and at first doesn’t seem like it’s going to be absorbed but after you rub this onto your skin you’ll notice the softness and realize it’s already started to do its job. The drier your skin is, the more you need this Healing Repair Creme.
More items are on sale at Meijer for the next week including Jergens Ultra Healing Moisturizer on sale for only $2.95.
As you can see Meijer stores covers you head to toe. I’m there often to buy my groceries and I always make it to the health and beauty section which is much more exciting than yogurt and macaroni. What products do you like to combat dry winter skin? — Marcia
