Tell me something. Does your skin change depending on the season? Mine sure does. In summer I tend to get more breakouts (ugh – weren’t those supposed to end with my teen years?), and in winter, my skin feels dry, itchy, and tight. It may not be 30 below here on the West Coast, but it still does get frosty, wet, and windy! That combination wreaks havoc on my skin. The skin on my face feels dry and tight, and I have a bit of eczema on my hands that always gets worse in the winter.
Luckily, Shoppers Drug Mart has the answer for my winter skin woes with their wide selection of skin care products.
For my dry skin, I definitely need a heavy-duty hand lotion, and it needs to last. With a toddler in diapers and a rough and tumble preschooler, I wash my hands a lot. I just don’t have the time or the inclination to keep reapplying lotion every time I change a diaper, wipe a runny nose, prepare meals, play outside, do crafts, or wash dishes.
Shoppers Drug Mart carries Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion, a long-time favourite of mine. I’ve been using this Aveeno lotion for years, and it’s my first line of defense against the cold and wind. I like the way it instantly gets rid of that dry, itchy, tight feeling, and that it lasts even through multiple hand washings!
I saw another product at Shoppers Drug Mart I’d like to try soon. This Biotherm Aquasource Cocoon is a balm-in-gel facial moisturizer. I already mentioned that I still get breakouts, so I like the idea of getting the moisture of a balm with the lightness and texture of a gel moisturizer.
But if you’re just not sure what to choose for your skin’s particular needs, did you know Shoppers Drug Mart also offers a complimentary beautyRx skin care consultation?
