gratitude-a-thon day 830: moisturize!


I have the driest skin. “How dry is it?” If I woke up as a pile of ash in the center of my bed, it wouldn’t surprise me (it would probably shock the hell out of my husband, however).

Anyway, you’d think someone with such dry skin would try and drown herself in moisturizer, right? Nope. Not me. I have them, all of them, lined up pretty, but I rarely use them. Why? Becasue for some reason, it feels like it takes too much time (what a lame excuse, and yet, true), and leaves me greasy before I put on clothes. Yes, I tried the one with that you spray on and which is made for people like me, with that same grease-averse complaint (support group, guys?), but I didn’t like the smell.


Anway, just thought I would pass along, my latest find, in an effort to remain a stable body, and not the story of Hansel & Gretel, leaving a trail of dry skin in my wake. Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion is kind of great. You put it on in the shower, and then wash it off. And guess what? It seems to work. And there’s no gross greasy after-effects. And it’s not a big ticket item, you can find it in CVS. So, like, don’t be looking for parts of me on the sidewalk, I’m keeping my skin to myself.
