After all, it's one thing for an adult to be bothered by the itchy, cracked, sore feeling on our hands, knees, elbows and more that comes along with the dry winter air, but it's even worse knowing that our kids feel the same way. What parent doesn't feel bad knowing that their baby or child's soft, sensitive skin is irritated?
Which is why I'm thankful that there are companies like Aquaphor that develop products that are specially formulated to soothe and help dry, cracked skin gently and quickly. Because now that our Winter Protection in Style package arrived, we're all happier knowing that our skin is being protected safely and gently.
Trusted by pediatricians, dermatologists and moms everywhere, Aquaphor products provide the effective care that dry, chapped or irritated skin needs all year-round (but especially in winter). Free of fragrances, preservatives and dyes, their skin therapies are pure and gentle to safely protect, clean and restore everything from chapped cheeks to cracked lips to diaper rash.
Seeing as winter is in full swing around here and we seem to have dry hands everywhere I look, it didn't take long before we were reaching for the Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect.
Providing the gentle care your skin needs, Aquaphor Healing Ointment is a multi-purpose ointment that can be used for a variety of locations. I love that it can go from protecting your skin from everyday irritations to relieving chapped knuckles to healing even the roughest hands and lips all in one quick motion.
The thick, clear formula immediately feels soothing and I love knowing that this isn't going to be a lotion that would dry and disappear. Instead, the slightly greasy feeling goes away as I rub it thoroughly on my hands and I can almost feel my skin absorbing the moisture and losing the dry, uncomfortable sensation that they had.
Or, when I want to focus specifically on my dry lips (my biggest culprit of irritation in the winter), the Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect has a way of immediately soothing and relieving the chapped, uncomfortable feeling that they often get.
I've found that it only takes a little of the Healing Ointment or the Lip Repair + Protect to cover a large area and the results are extremely long-lasting. I'll apply some in the morning and find that my lips or Little Sister B's dryness on her lower back (something she of course inherited from her father) stay hydrated, smooth and visibly improved all day long.
Just knowing that our skin and lips are healthy and protected (and that I won't have to worry about my kids feeling itchy or scratching at the dryness) is a big relief and something that I'm looking forward to continuing all winter long!
For products that you know that can be depended on for relief from wind burn, chafing, blisters, dry winter skin and much more, Aquaphor is a name that has been trusted to provide gentle care for the entire family. Prices do vary but currently the Healing Ointment in this 1.75oz size is priced at $4.69 on Amazon and the Lip Repair + Protect sells for $4.99, also on Amazon.
