How many people suffer from what I like to call ugly winter skin? What is ugly winter skin you ask, well I define it as dry, flaky and most definitely itchy skin and I deal with this each and every winter season. I have tried to intake more water because I heard that helps keep the skin hydrated but apparently the amount of water it seems I would have to drink to hydrate this skin of mine would probably kill me before my skin improved – or so it seems!
I can’t remember a winter season that I fought with makeup application looking awful because of my dry winter skin. Or lets discuss why you will never catch me in anything but pants all winter long because my poor legs look like the Sahara desert. I will admit I have tried many products and some have improved things slightly while others have failed to do anything more than make my skin smell pretty.
Of course Shoppers Drug Mart has always been my go-to when I’ve had beauty related questions as the Beauty Experts are very knowledgeable. It wasn’t until last winter that I had finally had enough and headed for my local Shoppers Drug Mart to pick the brain of their staff. The lovely girl in the beauty department listened to my concerns and skin issues and suggested I try out the La Roche Posay Lipkar Baume AP+ as it was good for my face and body as well as babies and last winter I gave birth to Bella who had some skin issues as well.
I cannot tell you how much of an improvement I have seen in my skin since using this product on a daily basis. I use it all-year-round to ensure I maintain healthy skin. I no longer fight with my makeup as my facial skin, while it may not be perfect, it isn’t dry or flaky. You might even see me in something other than pants and leggings during the winter because I am no longer ashamed of my severely dry skin on my legs too! I also use this cream on Bella every day after her bath and I love how soft and perfect her skin is after using it.
