Dry Skin Essential: Skincando Miracle Cream

Winter is not yet here (thank goodness), but my skin didn’t get the memo.

It doesn’t take much of a dip in temp for those of us bordering on dry skin to notice the difference.  When my skin tone became uneven and irritated in patches I immediately set out to figure what was causing it.  The new shampoo?  No.  The face oil I use often?  No.  How about the cleanser?  Nope.

It was more a case of what I wasn’t using that was causing the irritation.  And that’s a heavier, thicker moisturizer.  Sometimes we don’t think fall is cold or dry enough to whip out our big guns moisturizers.  But if you’ve noticed that your skin is drier, taut, sallow, or red you may need to lube up.

My go-to this season is the aptly named Skincando Luxe Miracle Cream.  A super rich, thick, nourishing facial cream that really soaks into skin and gets the job done.  And it is, of course, made with pure natural plant oils and free from nasty ingredients.  Apply a healthy dose at night and you will see results the next morning.  I use it for daytime too on my driest areas.

  1. Winter does a number on my skin, too! My knuckles get super painfully dry. Sweet almond oil helps out some, but I’m always on the lookout for other ways to keep my skin happy. The other thing that happens in winter that’s even worse is that my lower lip splits. OUCH! Do you have a favorite lip balm to prevent splitting in winter?

  2. One of my faves is Skin Lemon Lips lip balm. This stuff really stays put on lips and tastes super yummy. Be sure to get a good dose on at bedtime. It is made with honey which is very healing. You can even apply pure honey to lips, it is sticky but you will be amazed how soft it makes lips. For hands, my all time favorite is Weleda Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream Very moisturizing without being greasy.
