My hubby tells me quite frequently that he loves my smooth and soft skin. He’s kind of wonderful like that (don’t hate us :), we’re adorable). I have to be honest and admit it’s a compliment that I take great pride in receiving because I put a lot of effort into keeping my skin spring ready all season long.

2015-05-14 08.46.25I have really dry skin, which can be really painful if I don’t keep it moisturized properly. The winter can be especially tough because the cold, dry air outside doesn’t provide any natural moisture at all to my skin. And the high dry heat from indoor heating systems strips away my skin’s natural moisture.

Over the years, I’ve learned to be hypervigilant about making sure I keep my skin moisturized at all times. Within 20 seconds of stepping out the shower, I am slathered up and I cover every part of my body from my neck to my pinky toes.  I reapply the liquid gold to my hands every single time I wash them. I have to. My skin sucks up moisture like it’s sand in the hot sun.

I challenge you to try to catch me without a tube of good lotion in my purse, desk or gym bag – You never will :). In case you don’t know what my definition of good lotion is, let me explain. Squirt a glob of lotion in the palm of your hand and turn you hand upside down. If it’s watery and runs, I won’t try it. If it stays put, we are good to go.

2016-03-06 17.54.29AmLactin moisturizers have passed my good lotion test and I’ve been rocking with them this season to keep my skin winter-proof. The skincare line has really great user reviews and contains alpha-hydroxy therapy, which intensely hydrates and gently exfoliates dry, dead skin cells. It’s also the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by dermatologists for rough, dry skin.

2016-03-06 18.35.46I apply the AmLactin® Cerapeutic™ Restoring Body Lotion to my damp skin after I exit the shower and AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream after I wash my hands throughout the day to keep my skin silky smooth. When my feet are especially dry or cracked, I’ll break out the AmLactin® Foot Cream before bed and cover them with socks overnight. My feet are usually baby smooth by the next morning.

I will call out that while the AmLactin line is fragrance-free, it does have a faint medicinal smell when you first put it on, but it fades pretty quickly and feels like a small tradeoff for spring-approved, smooth and hydrated skin. The AmLactin line is available at local pharmacies and Amazon and runs between $7.59 – $15, so it won’t break the bank. You can also follow the brand’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for coupons and deals.

Uncover smooth, radiant skin with AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Skin Care. Its unique exfoliating and hydrating alpha-hydroxy therapy gently removes dead skin cells to reveal soft, hydrated skin. It’s the difference between skin care and skin therapy. AmLactin moisturizers are available on Amazon.com and at your local Target, CVS, Walgreens, Costco, Walmart and Rite Aid.
