Quench Your Skin's Thirst

I will go on the record and say as fortunate as I am not to have acne prone skin, I am equally as unfortunate in the skin hydration department. Coupled with psoriasis and unreal dry skin, the dry winter air definitely wreaks havoc on my skin and causes me to basically live in a tub of lotion from November to March–fun right? However, I have found some products that protect against harsh winter conditions and leave my skin hydrated healthy.

I definitely have a lot to be thankful for in the skin department, regardless of my mild issues. Let's be honest–I have a mild case of psoriasis, but I'm still not pulling a Kim Kardashian and crying about how it's ruining my life. (Oh you don't remember this? Well here's a refresher.) I just work around it, and I've been fortunate enough to find products that help. When Meijer reached out to us to discuss our winter skincare routine, I jumped at the opportunity to share my winter hydration routine.

For years, Eucerin has been a cold weather heavy hitter in my book, as it provides you with head to toe coverage when your skin is at it's worst. It's ultra moisturizing–even on my patches of psoriasis–without being too heavy or greasy. I typically slather Eucerin Skin Calming lotion on after I shower at night and let it soak in. Since my skin is super awesome (I know you're jealous), I have to reapply lotion in the morning as well as my go-to product for mornings, Jergens Ultra Healing moisturizer. It's a bit lighter, soaks in quickly and keeps my skin looking bright and radiant–no dull winter skin for this girl! I recently also just found this CeraVe Healing Ointment and it has done wonders for my hands. As you can see from the photo above, I have a patch of psoriasis on my knuckle that looks red and inflamed in the cold, dry months of winter. This ointment helps tone it down and keep my skin soft and supple. These products are a triple threat in my book! What are some of your favorite winter moisturizers?

PS - How adorable are these cute lip towels?! I found them in the clearance section of Meijer and they begged me to bring them home, so I complied and the rest is history.

  1. I've never tried the Eucerin lotion! I need to fix that.

    1. It's super hydrating–even in winter when the air is dry and cold. It's a skincare staple for Jaime, that's for sure.
