There are some things that I love about winter – taking the kids tobogganing, building snowmen in the backyard and enjoying a hot chocolate on a cold day. However, I could live without the dry skin that plagues me all winter long. When I was young the changing of the seasons just meant digging out snow pants and scarf. In my teen years I would need a little extra moisturizer in the winter on my face to prevent dry spots on my forehead and now…. Well let’s just say that I need to start changing my routine as soon as the leaves start to fall off the trees. Isn’t aging grand?
These days it is not just my face that needs a little extra attention during the wintertime. I find the skin on my hands, legs and feet get dry so quickly. Luckily my Mom introduced me to Aveeno products many years ago and I have been using them ever since. The Aveeno Skin Relief Fragrance Free Lotion is perfect to help keep my skin moisturized all winter long. It is the perfect body lotion for me as it absorbs quickly without feeling greasy and since it has no fragrance I can use it daily at work as we are a scent-free environment.
