Since it's chilly and windy in California, you can't avoid wind burns and dry skin every now and then. Take care of yourself during the nippy fall season.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry, Sensitive Skin 16oz.
I use Cetaphil moisturizing cream for my face and extremities. Cetaphil locks in the moisture in my skin and being fragrance free and noncomedogenic, it won't clog your pores and reduces breakouts. My skin has become far more supple and smooth that my husband noticed it. I use it twice a day; once in the morning and again before bed time. The cream keeps your skin well hydrated throughout the day as it’s proven to bind water to your skin to prevent moisture loss. Unlike other brands, Cetaphil isn’t greasy after the application. I like that the formula has a thick consistency as compared to the watery ones. You'll notice the difference after a week.
This also worked well in healing the burn on my arm. I apply the cream on my feet at night and seal in the moisture by wearing socks afterwards.
Chapstick Medicated Lipbalm
The same goes for the medicated Chapstick. My lips felt cool because of the menthol in the lip balm and eventually healed. It helps soothes the pain and locks moisture in your lips. Since it’s a medicated lip balm, you shouldn’t use it more than twice a day. If you feel the need to moisturize your lips even further during the day, use regular lip balm or petroleum jelly.
What causes dry lips anyway? There are numerous causes but the most common is the lack of humidity. This causes the lips to dry up. When this happens, do not lick your lips because the air will dry your saliva and cause crusting which can eventually lead to cracking. If you don’t have lip balm or petroleum jelly, drink more liquids. At the end of the day, clean your lips with warm soapy water or apply hydrogen peroxide if there is bleeding.
