Chronicles of a SAHM, Thinking of Mom

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

As often as I can, I like to watch The Wendy Williams Show.  She is so entertaining.  Okayyy? “How you doin?”  Anyway, she always talks about how she keeps her skin from looking old and cracked (my words) but she recommends that women of a certain age need to always moisturize.

I’ve never been one to use anything other than Vaseline on my face, since I was knee-high to a grasshopper.  My cleansing regimen was to splash water on my face, dry with a towel and slather Vaseline on it.  It had always worked for me. I’d never had acne, pimples, or dry skin – until now.  I’m not sure if it’s Lupus, my caffeine intake, or just my age but lately, the Vaseline has not be enough.

Fortunately, while I was on a girl’s trip last month, my bestie had brought along some of her moisturizer.  I’m always skeptical about putting anything on my face, because the few times that I used something other than water and Vaseline, my face broke out.

Anyway, I tried some of her Curel Hydrotherapy Itch Defense Wet Skin Moisturizer and now I’m sold. This is the best my skin has looked and felt in years.  When I touch my face, I can tell a difference – it’s softer.  I wish that I would’ve taken a before and after picture of my face.  I had no idea though.  I use it as directed – after a shower – and I tell you… amazing results.  Though I didn’t have itchy skin, which seems like the purpose of this moisturizer, I did have dry “seasoned” skin. LOL  It just looks and feels so much better. IMG-9202

Now I just use the Vaseline on my children’s skin.

Just wanted to share my find for the day.  If you have any tips or secrets for women over “a certain age,” please share!
