Surviving winter dryness

5 thoughts on “Surviving winter dryness”

  1. What I use down here in the desert, for lotion anyway, is a mixture of Aveeno and Neutrogena Sesame Oil. Don’t mix them in the bottle as it will cause the lotion to clump and get “icky.” But I put a few squirts of Aveeno in my hand then a douse of Sesame Oil, and my skin stays moist until my next shower. I have tried many other products, but found these two combined work magic. And the Neutrogena Sesame Oil has such a pleasant light fragrance to it.

    1. I’m using Jergens right now but have heard great things about Aveeno and Neutrogena. I’m not familiar with the Sesame Oil, however. I’ll have to look into that.

      1. Sometimes I have a hard time finding the Sesame Oil. But Walgreens (not intended to plug a store here) is typically where I find it. I love it! It’s light – not as heavy or greasy feeling. And you don’t smell like a baby’s butt. 🙂

      2. A belated P.S. Since last winter I’ve tried several different products and found Eucerin Intensive Repair works wonders. Smooth, moist skin from shower to shower. Also Eucerin Original Formula.

  2. This winter, at the suggestion of a doctor, I tried NeilMed sinus rinse. It’s a simple plastic squeeze bottle that you fill with normal saline. Readily available online, or I found mine at the nearest Walgreen’s. Much neater and easier to use than a neti pot, and very effective. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to employ sinus rinses.

... and that's my two cents
