Transforming My Dry Skin

This post was made in collaboration with Curel®, a KAO Worldwide brand.

I treasure the traits that I inherited from my mother, but there’s one thing we have in common that neither of us particularly enjoy.

Dry skin.

I shared my struggle with dry skin recently and mentioned that I was using a new product to combat my skin issues. I’ve been using Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer for about a month now and I wanted to share my honest results. As someone who has spent quite a bit of money over the years looking for the right product to ease my painful dry skin, I take this kind of recommendation pretty seriously.

As I mentioned before, Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer was developed to be used on wet skin, immediately following your bath or shower but before you dry off.

I’ve been using other moisturizers in this way for years, but there’s something different about this product. It almost melts into your wet skin and you’ll feel some soothing results immediately.

Just as a side note, one thing I adore about this moisturizer is it’s fragrance free. The Advanced Ceramide Complex penetrates to the source of dryness, helping to replenish skin’s ceramide levels and repair the moisture barrier.

So, here’s the really amazing thing here. I feel like the  isn’t just giving my skin a quick fix. I feel like since using this product daily I’ve actually began the process of treating my dry skin issue for good! I find that my skin feels moisturized and comfortable all day. I can’t even remember the last time I felt compelled to scratch my skin, and this time of year, that’s almost unheard of for me!

The fact that I can put on a woolly sweater and not be scratching at my arms and neck all day due to itchy, dry skin is incredible.

Feeling comfortable in your own skin is something that we typically associate with our self-image, but let me just say that literally feeling comfortable in your own skin is pretty important, too!

Our skin is our largest organ and can play such a key role in how we feel as we operate in the world. I love that  has given my skin the kind of moisture and softness that I haven’t felt since I was in my 20’s.

My husband is also happy that I’m not constantly tossing and turning in bed at night due to my dry, itchy skin. I feel so comfortable in bed now that I’m actually getting a better quality sleep at night.

This teal bottle has a permanent home in my shower and if you suffer with dry skin I really can’t recommend it highly enough.
