Raise your hands if you get alligator skin in the winter.
I assume that pretty much all of my Canadian readers just raised their hands sky-high. Winter is tough on my hands. I don’t measure winter by the actual date, I measure it by the moment I realize that my hands have started to have out of control dry skin. It’s especially worse since I spend most days in the kitchen baking and cooking, which leads to washing my hands around 20 times a day, minimum. Add in the fact that I use hand sanitizer after every grocery and mall trip…ouch. Decimated winter skin.
You all know by now that I absolutely love Shoppers Drug Mart.
Did you know that they have in-store complimentary skin care consultations using their beautyRx tool? That the Skin Analysis consists of a Moisture Checker that measure your skins hydration levels and a Video Microscope that magnifies your skin’s surface by 30 times to help diagnose your skin type? Me neither. I honestly had no clue and you can add this to the list why I’m a Shoppers Drug Mart lover. They will then take your readings and the Beauty Expert will recommend skin care products for you accordingly.
Now since I am always completely upfront with you guys and will never talk about something I’ve never used, I picked one of my favorite hand & body lotions as my featured winter skin saviour.
I love Aveeno. Mike can’t stand any perfumed lotions – most likely because he uses them on his beard in the winter – and I find this one is the gentlest on our skin. Mr K gets horribly dry elbows and I use this lotion on him as well.
I think by this point I should own shares in Aveeno, to be honest. We use it by the gallon. Oh, Alberta winters….you are just too hard on our skin. Which is why I ran away to Arizona this year, which, by the way, is 10 times drier than Alberta. Ouch.
Now, Shoppers Drug Mart has a wide selection of skin care products to keep your skin healthy this winter and you can go and check them out yourself!

Just for fun, I am going to post a couple of skin care products that are on my wish list.
First, the Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Eye Balm. This is tops on my wish list.
Next, I would love the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV protector SPF 42. Oh, I would love to try this out! This seems like it would be perfect for summer, I have such sensitive skin that anything oil-free usually works for me.
Thanks for stopping in everyone!
