I recently returned from a trip to Las Vegas and during my time there, my skin was extremely dry. On the 1st day I noticed a clear difference in the feeling of my skin against my clothes. As a matter of fact, by day three there were noticeable scars in my ankle area because of the dry conditions.
I visit Vegas 2-3 times per year and each time my skin turns into a dry, brittle mess. This time the high was around 50 degrees this time and the last time I went the high was 111. Both times, my skin started screaming upon entry into the desert.
This time, I was prepared and brought along two different lotions to keep my skin hydrated. I also brought along a tube of MAC Cosmetics Lip Treatment. I neglected my skin on day one and went into skin care overload on the 2nd day. Of the two containers of lotion that I brought along, one came out the winner – Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sensual (Jasmine Vanilla fragrance). I put on two layers each day; one in the morning and one midday. It truly worked wonders for me.
My skin is naturally dry and I use Curel daily while at home. Vegas just requires a change in the regimen and more, thought out care for my skin. I hope this helps those that are having issues with their skin. I also drank a ton of water and showered with The Body Shop’s Satsuma Shower Gel.
Good luck to each of my dry skin sisters during these winter months. Stay hydrated my friends…
Peace, love and makeup.
