IT GIRLS…I’ve teamed up with with Vaseline® to talk about how Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant Lotion has helped my daily body care routine.
Happy 2017 IT GIRLS!!! It feels good to be back in front of my computer for a brand new year of beauty and growth. Today I want to talk about my body care regimen. As a kid my mother always emphasized, to my sister and I, the importance of self-care always making sure that we payed special attention to keeping our skin soft and supple. I grew up relying on Vaseline® products and 100% pure cocoa butter to keep my skin hydrated often mixing them together to create super-moisturizer. Immediately after bathing I would use my body heat to melt the chunks of cocoa butter into my skin following up with a thin coat of Vaseline® Jelly to lock in moisture. It was a labor of love that never failed to give me the coveted dewy skin that tends to evade us as we age. I simply glowed.
Today I rely on a few very simple steps that I want to share with you to assure that you too face the world wearing your best skin ever.
1. EXFOLIATE: The first step to any good skin care routine is exfoliation. Not only does it help slough dead skin cells, but it also stimulates cell turnover and collagen production giving skin a polished finish. Regular exfoliation, especially in the drier colder winter months, also makes it easier for your skin to absorb whatever products you apply after. This step should only be done about 2-3 times a week and my favorite way to effectively exfoliate is to grab a pair of exfoliating gloves commonly found in drugstores, douse it with my body wash du jour and get to scrubbing.
2. MOISTURIZE: In honor of family tradition, I’ve added the Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant Lotion ($4.99)to my body care regimen.
The Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant Lotion contains pure cocoa butter to leave skin deeply moisturized plus Vaseline® Jelly that absorbs deeply to heal dry skin revealing its natural glow. What I love about this product is that moisturizes but leaves skin with a non-greasy feel. The light scent rapidly dissipates minutes after applying and its flip top bottle makes it easy to use on the go.
As though the moisturizing qualities of the Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant Lotion are not enough, your purchase of Vaseline® lotion or jelly in the U.S. helps support Direct Relief through a buy one to help heal one promotion. CLICK HERE to learn more about the Healing Project.
3. REINFORCE: I like to sometimes follow up my moisturizer with a body oil like pure Argan or Jojoba oil. This step is completely optional as I only need it when my skin needs an extra boost.
