8 Tips For Treating Dry Skin


This last weekend I think I changed a million diapers.  I washed my hands a kazillion times.  I gave my 2 kiddos 3 baths.  I cleaned them up time and time again after playing outside.  I washed faces and hands after meals.  I scrubbed the kitchen floor and cleaned the dirty dishes.  I used WAY too many wet wipes.  Does this sound familiar? All this washing makes your skin really dry. Here are my tips for treating dry skin. In addition to moisturizing, you may use the best at home chemical peel to have a brighter and smoother skin.

I never thought that after having kids my hands would get so dry that they would crack and bleed. I also never thought that I would have to deal with two kids having dry skin. Do you or your kids deal with the dreaded dry skin?  If you don’t, you are one lucky mom.

If you are like me, you want a solution.  Search no further because I have found one. I have tried a variety of lotions for our dry skin.  Aveeno and Cetaphil have been the BEST!

Aveeno makes a great body wash that I LOVE for my 2 kiddos. It has helped with their dry skin.

The best part: I can buy all 3 products at Sam's Club or Costco at a great price.  They come 2 in a package and they last FOREVER.
