Keep a sample body lotion in your purse for a convenient pick-me-up after washing hands when at work or out doing errands. A tiny hotel lotion or moisturizer makes a unique functional souvenir from a memorable vacation and you can refill the container from a full size hand lotion.

Say NO to "Yes to Blueberries" Daily Facial Moisturizer
Yes to Blueberries is a Age Refresh Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30. Sounds good in theory but it leaves a white film all over my face. This is more sunscreen than daily moisturizer in my book. I'll be using it in the car on my hands!!
I get very dry, flaky skin in winter and no amount of fancy washes or moisturizer helps! I mixed a bit of olive oil with a bit of sugar, enough of each to make a paste. Rub it into your skin, especially on dry areas, and rinse with a warm water. Using a face cloth makes sure you get all of the oil off. Follow with a good moisturizer.
Feel free to add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to make it smell as good as it feels! Olive oil does not clog pores so this is great for all skin types.
Use more Lotion (for hands, face, body) during cold months
My skin gets so dry during cold months, it cracks and hurts! But I started using more lotion and moisturizers for face, and i feel soooo much better! Love Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer. It's not greasy, absorbs fast and keeps you hands and body softer longer :)
