I have suffered from dry skin all of my life. Winters are my worst enemy. There has always been a distinct difference in my skin from fall to winter as all the balmy summer moisture leaves the air. This October I was already noticing my lips cracking, my nasal passages becoming red and swollen and my shins and elbows looking perpetually scuffed.
So I decided to take the Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion Challenge. And see what the results would be. I received my cute little "healing kit" which included a mug, hot cocoa, Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion and test strips to monitor my progress over 5 days.
Here is what my strip looked after day 1.
So I applied the lotion to the areas that needed the most moisture- my elbows, my shins. After day 1 I noticed a difference. Being outdoors for even 1 minute usually causes the skin on my hands to whiten, harden and wrinkle from the dryness of the air. After using Vaseline for just a few days I noticed my skin didn't react so quickly to the harsh weather and overall stayed softer.
Here is what my strip looked like after day 5. Big difference, eh?
