I noticed us "chicks" like to talk about things that might be sensitive to guys. So I thought we could warn the guys and jump in here when we want to talk...chick stuff.

I'd love to start it by asking for some help!

My skin has a problem keeping moisture during the winter. I use Estee Lauder moisturizer but nothing I use I feel dry all the time during the winter. Anybody have any suggestions?

Hey Annabelle!

I always had the same problem in the winters (and Fall, sometimes too). Try using Oil of Olay Body Wash for extra dry skin. It's heaven!! I don't have to add any lotion afterwards any more! Such a relief!

Happiest of New Years to you, and to everyone, too!!

Good idea Annabelle! Ooh! My kind of topic....skin care! We have someone on this board who is an expert in all this stuff. Hopefully she will see this and come in and help us all out.

I have very sensitive skin that is prone to breakout if I use certain products. So I have to use fragrance-free items. I personally have found that the stuff you buy in the drug store is just as good as the very expensive department store items. I tend to use a lot of Neutrogena products. Cetaphil has an excellent moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin. I use that and when I put that stuff on, I don't need anything else the rest of the day either!

I use a pumpice stone on my heals and then apply plain ole vaseline on my heels with socks on at night and that helps me. There is probably something better though.

Hello
I had rough and cracked heels. I started using pumice stone to smooth out then I put a treatment lotion called Kerosel. You can find it where foot care is in Walmart or probably anywhere else.

I am sceptic on new products so I hve to try them before I suggest them to others. I tried the Kerosel. i cant believe how smooth my heels are getting. U use it once a day. I recommend it.

Here's an old-fashioned remedy for really dry skin. My hands crack and bleed in the winter (old house, humididty drops to about 40%)Anyway, I put Bag Balm on my hands before bed. It's greasy, it doesn't have a pleasant smell, but it works. You could use it for calloused heels too, just lather it on and put on some socks.
The stuff was literally made for cows. I know, not too attractive, but if it works, it works. You can buy it in any drug store I think. I've had this tin for a while.

It helps to moisurize just after you get out of the shower, while your skin is still wet. This is helping me battle these dastardly dry western winters.

I use Eucerin on my face and elbows after I moisture. It's like putting saran wrap on which keeps the dirt out and the moisture in. It's grand and is fragrance free and lovely. When my heels crack I put a lanolin ointment on my feet and put on a pair of white socks when I go to bed. Works great! Also put baby oil on as I step out of the shower. Another great moisturizer. Our weather is very dry so can never have anough lotion, cream, etc lol.gif

Richard, glad to see you are taking such good care of us!

Suave makes a great body wash called Milk and Honey. It is almost like bathing with lotion. I recommend it.

It's really inexpensive too. biggrin.gif

I'm quite fond of the Bodyshop's lotions with hemp.. that's smoothing and moisturising extremely.

My mother makes lotions and stuff herself, I can ask her for a recipe as well.

It helps when you put on Penaten/Nivea Baby-creme in your face before going out into the cold. Compact powder helps against the shiny bits.
If you have to put on make up you might want to take a fat-containing or lanolin (great stuff) containing moisturiser or night cream..

For day to day use I use the L'oreal nature based range or boots botanics range (the wake-up eye cream is great!), a fat or lanolin containing moisturiser for cold days and a simple moisturiser for all others.

lol.gif oldraven you crack me up! too funny! But what you said is really true. I live in the dryest climate in the world, I think! Sometimes putting on baby oil right after a shower really helps. I will have to get some of that Suave body wash though. That sounds really good. smile.gif

I agree with AD. Any lotion or creme with hemp in it will help. Slather it on before bed and wear cotten socks or gloves (depending on what part of you was slathered!) Bodyshop has lots of nice products, and they are environmentaly friendly.
My Gramma used to melt and strain chicken fat, and use that on her skin. Depends on how you feel about animal products, I guess. wink.gif

hemp handcreme is a great thing.. I often need to work something containing fat into my hands to protect & heal them because I work with chemicals alot and I need my hands to feel if a surface is thoroughly dry.
