The end of dry skin

We’ve all been there. You’re in a hurry; you put on your favorite throw-on-and-go dress and rush out the door. Then you look down to notice that your legs are dry and in desperate need of lotion! I remember back when I was working in an office, I actually took an early lunch break one time to rush to a drugstore and buy lotion because I was so embarrassed of how my legs looked!

 

Apparently I’m not the only woman who’s been through this…

 

When Curél reached out to 40 of your favorite bloggers – – myself included, lucky me! –   they found out that 75% had been embarrassed by their dry skin. That’s a HUGE number, especially when you consider that looking our best is part of our job.  When surveyed, most of these women, like me, found that their legs were the most affected when it came to dry skin.  Even in the summertime!  It’s a year-round problem for many of us, even when half of those surveyed admitted they used lotion every day.

 

 

Since many of my trips tend to be last minute, I have to make sure my skin is ready for anything.  This winter I’ve been using Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer every day to end my dry skin.  That way I was automatically beach ready for our trip to sunny Costa Rica!

Wondering why you should try a wet skin moisturizer?  It works with your freshly showered skin to penetrate and heal dryness.  Since your pores are open, it’s an easy way for your skin to really absorb the product.  The Advanced Ceramide Complex works to bring moisture to the source of dryness and with continued use it will end the cycle of dry skin!  (Which is good news when the thought of putting on a bikini comes into your head!)

I’ve prepped my diet, I’ve stepped up my workouts, and I used Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer to be ready for our trip.  So instead of worrying about the look of my legs, all I had to do was decide which magazine I should read next.  Sounds like the best kind of problem to have, don’t you think?

    My dry embarrassing skin story is my stretch marks are dry and itchy, but the skin around it isn’t. I have not been able to find anything to stop the severe itchy dry skin on my stretch marks. I need to try this Curel lotion to see if it helps.

    I hate having dry skin. It’s always super embarrassing when you go to shake someone’s hand and your hands are super dry.

  • Natalie

    Once the skin on my hands were so dry that they started to crack and bleed and when I was shaking another persons hand I got blood on him!

    I remember a few years ago, pulling up my sleeve and flakes of dry skin fell onto the table, so embarrassing.

    Its not really embarrassing more funny. I have an aunt who every time she went by a pump bottle of lotion would use some. I got to making fun of her for doing it and now everyone laughs at me because I am addicted to lotion. I am like a drug addict and get the shakes and heeby jeebies if I don’t have any handy.

    My embarrassing dry skin story is going to the beach and my legs are all flakey and dry. I need to try Curel lotion as soon as possible.

  • heather
  • Chrissy

    I remember when I was about 12 one winter the skin on my hands was so cracked that my hands were literally bleeding anytime I did anything. It was super embarrassing and uncomfortable and I have been super diligent about moisturizing since then to make sure it never happens again!

  • Jessie C.

    I avoid to be barefoot whenever possible because of my dry flaky heels, so far only heavy cream and oil seem to help. I need Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer.

    I used to have psoriasis outbreaks on my elbows and many years ago I was told to get out of a hotel swimming pool because I had a “skin disease”.

  • Denise L

    My skin gets so dry in the winter, especially on my legs. A few weeks ago I had someone in my office and I couldn’t stop scratching my legs because they were so itchy/painful. That’s a hard one to explain.
