Eucerin Aquaphor My New Beauty Go-To #AD
I was beginning to despair at the state of the skin on my hands. It happens every Winter. My hands become so sore, dry and eventually crack and bleed. I have had dry skin my entire life and never found anything that works as well for me as Eucerin Aquaphor.
As a child I had loose skin on my hands. They were dry, they peeled and in Winter they cracked and Bled. I used to despair with them, they always look far older than my years and not only dry, but sore too. I would get ointment from Doctors depending on how severe the dryness was, but it never made my hands feel good, if anything, just greasy.
Being a hairstylist has only served to make my hands more dry and more irritated. In recent years my skin has become so bad that the skin becomes so dry that they swell and become infected in cracks.
As you can see on the picture, my hand was swollen dry and very sore !

I know it sounds awful, but it genuinely has been a problem for me each year. When I was asked to take part in the #MyAquaphorChallenge I thought I would definitely give it a go, as the weather and hairs were starting to become problematic to my hands and already became sore and inflamed, occasionally bleeding.
My skin soothed after the very first use. The redness dissipated, and my hands felt less tight and the soreness vanished. I was impressed !
I have since used the Skin Balm after every hand or hair wash. I keep it by my bed and give my hands a nice soothing hand massage each evening. Within a week my hands are looking far less red.They are not cracked. They are no longer sore. I am so happy with their appearance. I know my skin is still typically loose for someone my age, and that will not change but they seem so much better without the irritation.
More uses for Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm
I have found that it works really well by adding a tiny amount to the hands and smoothing against fine, dry or flyaway hair!
I have been using it as a body lotion each evening to try and get my skin looking great for Christmas nights out. It as you would expect making such a difference.
I also apply a tiny amount over my moisturiser before applying my foundation and is shaping up to be an amazing primer for my make up.
I also get chapped lips, applying the balm to my lips healed them within a day and my lips have no dryness AT ALL.
Aquaphor is formulated with only seven ingredients, not only is it gentle enough top be used on irritated skin, it can be used on Baby skin and even in Nappy area.
Eucerin Aquaphor Smoothing Skin Balm protects the skin by creating a breathable protective barrier, allowing oxygen and water vapor to circulate to and from the skin, which allows the skin to breathe and strengthen its natural barrier function.
I would highly recommend this as an essential beauty product, let me know if you use it too or will try it for yourself
