Happy Thursday friends - we've almost made it to the weekend...yessss!!!

We've had a beautiful fall here in the Midwest, BUT, I know what's in the pipeline. Cold wind and cold air, snow, ice...it's coming! My skin always takes the brunt of winter weather. It dries out and gets sooooo itchy! I can't stand it. 

I'm so excited this year however to have something new on the market to help my skin cope. Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer, available at Wal-Mart, is a game changer folks! Have you seen it yet? Available in a variety of heavenly scents, including Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer Cherry Almond Essensce (exclusive to Wal-Mart), it's the perfect way to help dry skin heal, or prevent it in the first place.

Unlike typical lotions, Jergens Wet Skin is applied to wet skin (just like the name implies), directly after showering. Equipped with essential oils that work with water to lock in moisture and provide all day softness, skin feels pampered and just as silky as it does in the summer. With just a dime sized amount for each arm, or quarter sized amount for each leg, moisturizing daily has never been easier. 

I have to say, I was a little skeptical when first using - after all, it's not how I typically moisturize, but the lightweight moisturizer isn't sticky at all and absorbs SO quickly. After using, just dry as normal, easy-breezy:) The skin on my legs especially, has never looked better!

Since I know so many of us suffer from dry itchy winter skin, here are my top 5 tips to help eliminate it this season:

1) Get yourself some Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. Trust me, you need it in your life!
2) Cool Off! Hot showers and baths are a huge culprit when it comes to dry skin. If you're like me and "need" a hot shower, try to lessen the time you're actually in it.
3) Stay hydrated! My water intake tends to drop off in cooler weather. BUT, our water intake helps maintain the health of our skin, so make sure to get it in!
4) Change your Soap! Use something natural or more gentle than what you might be used to. Those laden with chemicals can do a number on our skin. I want to try a Dead Sea or Shea butter soap this winter.
5) Try a Humidifier. Keep the air around you moist - your skin will thank you!
