Winter Skin Savers

Winter always does a number on our skin, and in Chicago where it's winter 6 months out of the year, I always need products that can counteract the harsh winter weather.  Meet my winter skin savers..

Face wash- "we come into this world with all the right instincts. we are full of joy, laughter and wonderment. we grow sunflowers in sunlight, make the wind our friend by flying kites, see dirt as tasty mud pies and celebrate the flames on our birthday cakes by making secret wishes that we know will come true. but there is no greater joy than water and suds. our nature is to be clean from the outside in and the inside out. we are water creatures that aspire to an instant renewal, restoration and revival we feel when we wash away what is old and outmoded to prepare ourselves for our next new brilliant experience. godliness is cleanliness, and cleanliness gives us wings to fly."  
Amen, meet my new face wash- Philosophy Purity Made Simple (the foaming kind).  Smells delicious, removes the make up, and doesn't leave my skin painfully dry, it's a keeper!
Bag Balm  yes it's original use was for animals but this lanolin based lotion is the perfect thing to banish dry, cracked feet.  Slather on liberally, throw on some socks and call it a night, in the morning your feet will thank you.  Not to worry you don't have to hit up your local veterinarian, Bag Balm can be purchased at Walgreen's or your local drugstore.

Kheil's lip balm - Soothes and protects winter lips, add cranberry flavor and you've got a winner.

Look Ma No Hands hand lotion- No more dry winter hands. Formulated with paraffin; olive, avocado and apricot oils; plus antioxidant Vitamin E- this high intensity lotion, absorbs fast and leaves my hands soft all day.  There's one in my purse, one on my desk, and one on my bedside table.

Johnson's Lavender Baby Oil- the perfect thing after a bath, and you'll be drifting off to a peaceful slumber in no time.  Enriched with lavender and chamomile, not only relaxs you, but help replenish your dry winter skin.
