It’s that time of year when the effect of cold and the dryness in the air has a negative effect on our skin. If the skin on your hands is cracking from being outside, you can bet your feet are also suffering. Be sure to use a moisturizing lotion on your feet. In extreme cases when your skin is especially dry and cracked, apply the lotion or cream and then cover the area with plastic wrap to hold it in. Here are my favorite skin care choices:
1. SkinMD Natural – This is a new shielding lotion that adds moisture while stopping the loss of your natural moisture to heal dry and damaged skin.
2. Zim’s Crack Crème – A natural, herbal lotion that moisturizes and softens dry and cracked skin.
3. Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème – Heals and protects dry, rough and callused skin.
4. Weleda Skin Food – An herbal crème that moisturizes dry, flaky, and damaged skin.
The important tip to remember is to use the lotion daily or according to the package’s directions. Using these lotions once or twice a week will not allow them to work their healing magic on your skin.
