Dry skin comes with its struggles all year round but things can get really bad once the winter rolls around. The cold temperatures, harsh winds and dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on dry skin and cause all sorts of nasty skin struggles. One of the most common (and annoying!) of winter skin struggles is eczema. Millions of people struggle with itchy, scaly and often irritating rashes of tiny bumps that can make life a living hell with no sign of relief in sight.
If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen my recent pics and videos of my extreme eczema flare up this winter. It seemed to come out of nowhere once I returned home from Gen Beauty and it spread pretty quickly from my arms, to my legs and even my face. Almost overnight, my skin went from perfectly fine to a burning, itching sensation that was flaking, peeling and red as a tomato. Ouch!
I immediately ran out and grabbed more of my beloved Shea Moisture soap and extra virgin coconut oil to help relieve my flare ups–and it helped. But it wasn’t quite as fast acting as the little jar of Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream I received in my Influenster Jingle Vox Box. Talk about sweet relief! I started using this tiny miracle morning and night on to my arms and legs and within a week my skin is almost back to normal. I went from flaking, peeling, itching and burning skin to rash free bliss. I still get an itching sensation every once in a while (which is best to fight) but there’s no more bumps, redness or peeling anymore. I couldn’t be happier!
Or more impressed. Not only did the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream clear up my winter eczema struggles but it also kept my nasty flare ups from leaving any dreaded dark spots behind. Which I greatly appreciate. The only thing worse than struggling with eczema is having to look at the dark scarring the rashes can leave behind that are often really hard to get rid of. However, the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream battles it all very well without breaking the bank. At just $10 for a 3 ounce tube or $16 for a whopping 16 ounces you too can banish your nasty eczema flare ups and enjoy your skin this winter. You can find the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream at your local drugstore, super store at Ulta.
