Fall is definitely here. The leaves are changing colors and falling away from the trees. The weather is getting colder, which means the need for a heater at night (and sometimes during the day). AND it means dry skin for me. Every time the weather starts getting colder, my skin rebels against the cool weather and the heater and I can’t stand it.
If you happen to look in my purse, you’ll probably find 2 bottles of lotion at any given time. It’s a must. I can’t go without lotion. If I have dry hands, I get cold chills, always have. I know it’s weird, but I can’t stand having dry hands or skin.
The lotions that I usually carry around are perfumed though. AND most of them aren’t as moisturizing as I would like them to be. I’d put them on, just to have to reapply it within 30 minutes. SO- the only point of those lotions is to SMELL good.
When I got the chance to review Baby Magic Creamy Baby Oil, I was super psyched. They have the most amazing bath washes, so I knew I wanted to try this lotion against the evil markings of cold weather against my skin.
This comes in a 16.5 oz bottle, which is the right size. I could use it and also use it on the kids after their baths. This lotion is simply AMAZING. It smelled amazing (like a sweet tiny newborn baby).
It’s hypoallergenic, which means that it can be used on anybody’s skin without it agitating or irritating their skin. It has Vitamins E, A, D & Aloe in it, so it not only naturally soothes the skin (but the vitamins in it HEAL the skin).
As I have Keratosis Pilaris I ALWAYS look for lotions, oils, and body washes with Vitamin A in them. Vitamin A is a natural skin healer and will reduce the bumps with continued use. If you don’t know what it is *it’s nicknamed chicken skin for a reason* My thighs get red, itchy bumps on them if left untreated.
I went to the Doctor over the *chicken skin* and she wrote me a prescription for Retinol A cream. This is just a high dosage of Vitamin A, but it was extremely expensive. It was more than $80 for a tube that resembled a Neosporin tube.
After the first tube, I was NOT about to pay that again. So I started looking for other stuff I could use that is inexpensive yet still gets the job done. Really the *chicken skin* is from having dry skin and pants *jeans* rub against the already dry skin and make the hair follicles pop out creating the bumps.
AS long as I can keep my legs moisturized and use something that contains Vitamin A, they disappear and won’t come back unless I stop using the lotions, oils, or whatever.
This HAS really helped to diminish the bumps. It has been 3 weeks now and they are almost completely gone. The itchiness is gone, and my legs feel much better. It is said that 50% of American’s have this and don’t know what it is or how to treat it.
THIS is how to treat it. This is by far the most inexpensive lotion that I’ve found that actually benefits my skin without leaving it oily or with a residue that transfers to my clothing. It’s best to put this on right after the shower/bath to trap in the moisture AND to avoid using steaming hot water when possible. Your water can be warm but if your skin turns red- the hot water is too much and will dry out your skin even further.
I give this lotion from Baby Magic a big fat A+++++++++.
