I’m prone to dry skin not only my face but all over my body. It’s been pretty tame this Winter though! When the Fall hit I was feeling a bit tight, dry, and itchy but it passed quickly and up until recently things have been going pretty smoothly in my dry skin realm.
However, the weather started to get a little warmer about two weeks ago and suddenly for some unknown reason I started to feel super dry and itchy. And I mean ITCHY! Oh my gosh it was awful. I started slathering on all my lotions and potions but not a lot helped. I also had a really bad red rash on my neck. I actually started getting semi-panicky thinking it was the measles. I’ve had the chicken pox but never the measles. After a quick visit to my dermatologist, who’s 85 years old and quite good at soothing my skin hypochondriasis by telling me how ridiculous I am thinking I have skin cancer from a tiny mole, I was reassured I did not have the measles but just irritated myself by itching my drier skin. And as always, he explained that when I got out of the shower I should apply my body lotion to my wet skin and pat dry and of course, NO steaming hot showers.
This is actually a good technique to use as I find some body lotions can be very heavy and don’t completely absorb when I apply them on my drier skin. Applying them on my wet skin allows the formula to absorb much, much faster. But I actually still struggle with this at times.
That was until started using Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. Oh my god! This stuff saves my dry skin life.
This formula is really, really quite interesting. The entire idea is as soon as you step out of the shower you apply your moisturizer right onto your wet skin. Don’t dry off! Just step out of the shower, apply Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, and pat yourself dry. I like the texture of this moisturizer as it has a gel-like texture that absorbs really quickly but that’s not really what impresses me. What impresses me most is the fact it really cures drier skin. I went from literally itching the skin off my body to completely smooth, soft skin. Even the redness I was experiencing around my neck disappeared within a day of using this. It’s not sticky, doesn’t leave a gross film behind, and it has a really subtle fragrance that isn’t overwhelming!
If you have dry, itchy skin this ones for you!
Can’t recommend it enough.
Does anyone else love it as much as I do!?
