Cold weather can wreak havoc on your skin.  It’s easy to neglect your skin during the winter because you’re covered up for a few months.  Just like they say beach bodies are made in the winter, the same thing goes for your skin.  I wanted to share with you how using Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion and a few easy tips can help you take care of your skin this winter and be ready for spring.

1. Turn down the temperature in the shower.  When you’re a busy mom, taking a shower is a luxury.  The cold temps may want you to crank up the hot water but you really should take it down a notch.  Hot water can take the moisture out of your skin.  Instead of boiling hot shower, take it down a few notches.

2.  Pat dry after a shower.  Once you step out the shower, don’t rub when you’re drying off.  Using a soft bath towel, pat your body gently to remove excess water.  Rough towel drying can make your skin drier.

3. Use a moisturizing lotion.  All lotions are not created equal.  I learned that the hard way after having scaly dry skin in the past.  I’ve been a long time fan of Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion.  Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion contains pure cocoa butter to leave skin deeply moisturized plus Vaseline® Jelly that absorbs deeply to heal dry skin, revealing its natural glow.  I can go all day using Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion without having to reapply.

4. Apply lotion immediately.  Once you pat dry with a soft towel, apply Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion immediately.  This will help lock in the moisture so Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion can do its thing.  Your pores are open and will lock in the moisture. It absorbs fast and is non-greasy.

5. Drink lots of water.  Water is a natural miracle worker on its own and we tend to take it for granted.  Drinking lots of water will help to provide moisture to your body from within.

I get compliments all the time on how soft and smooth my skin is.  Genetics may play a role but I also do these steps daily (or a least when I can get a shower).  Crazy how altering a few things that you’re already doing can make a big difference.  Adding Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ to your routine help heal dry skin and give you a radiant glow.  Click HERE for a special coupon to save on your next  Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ purchase.

    Only within the last couple years have I realized that I need to keep my skin a bit damp out of the shower before applying my moisturizer. It really makes a difference, especially in the winter!
    P.s. LOVE your photos! ?
