Conquer the Cold #PGMom

Canadian winters are really tough on my skin. Cold and windy outside and hot and dry inside. I can feel the moisture being sucked out of my skin as soon as October hits. By the time December is here I am so itchy and irritated it is not even funny. That is just my skin. My poor hair is breaking and so dry. Yeah, I am due for a trim, but the weather has really done a number on it as well. Luckily I have a winter survival kit from P&G.

Items like Olay Ultra Moisture lotion and Pantene Pro V’s Moisture renewal line help put the moisture back into my hair and skin. Soft silky hair and skin is much nicer than dry, itchy and brittle.

The Cause: Dry furnace air, wind burn and warm clothing can lead to dry, flaky and itchy skin.

The Solution: In the winter months you should moisturize at least once a day and more if you’re prone to dry, flaky skin. Look for moisturizers with petrolatum or mineral oil to prevent evaporation and water loss from the skin.

Product to try: For an immediate burst of moisture, try Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion. This lotion contains petrolatum and replenishes and nourishes skin’s moisture barrier to break the cycle of dry skin. In one week, your skin will feel noticeably soft. Pay special attention to areas that are prone to dry out quickly, such as hands, elbows, knees, ankles and toes. Adults need about 20 ml – approximately a shot glass – of lotion to cover their entire body. $10.99


If you are worried about your hair losing moisture, you can take care of it in a few easy steps. Eat a balanced diet, drink water, brush your hair to naturally distribute oils and dry naturally. Appliances like blow dryers, curling irons etc can do so much damage to your hair over time.
