I know many of us deal with the dry winter skin that gets irritated by the cold and wind. Nomad's allergy thread brought this to mind. What do you do for yours? I recently picked up an ELF brand (eyeslipsface) jumbo lip gloss stick at a grocery in the city because my lips were peeling and sore. It was only $2 and is NOT small at all. It is about as thick around as a kid's marker and has at least as much in it as a brand name lipstick. There were not a lot of shade choices, so I picked a pink that I thought would be close to the natural color of my lips. I like ELF products, that isn't a secret. Once again I was very pleased. The color is nice but not so intense that you absolutely must have a mirror. If you color outside the lines, it doesn't instantly leave a stain. It has a very slight mint scent, no flavor (which I love because then I don't lick it all off and make the chapping worse, lol), and it is doing lovely things to my lips. I liked it so much I went and bought the other colors they had at the grocery. I had to go back to pick up something anyway. My skin is another story. I do use sugar scrub in the shower, but I have to stick to my own recipes for creams etc... because the store bought ones still cause problems. I am just glad they are easy to make and use. Sugar scrub is insanely cheap, and a salt scrub is even cheaper if you prefer that. You mix sugar (or salt) with enough oil to make a paste (adjust the thickness to your taste). Add a couple of drops of essential oil for scent and there you go. (Makes a LOVELY gift and people think you went crazy spending tons of time and effort, but it takes more time to do a label for a gift, lol.) If my skin gets too dry, I put on a layer of mineral oil before I towel off after a shower. I don't use the natural oils like almond or shea because they go rancid on your towel if you are not careful. But with mineral oil (or baby oil, which simply has fragrance added) this doesn't happen. So what are your "Go To" products and tips for winter skin problems? Also, have you tried the BB creams? Have your teen daughters? Which ones do you like best? Jess is thinking about trying one, but isn't sure which.
