Moving on to dry skin ... did you know oatmeal has many healing properties? Did you also know that January is national oatmeal month?
Most folks can relate to winter hands. My hands get so dry I've been known to use Crazy Glue to repair cracks. In fact I've got a slit on my right thumb right now. Had to reach for the CG for a little relief. In case you were wondering the glue bonds the cut and keeps moisture out.
Anyway, you can't use Crazy glue every day. That's why I am very excited to try Aveeno's new skin relief healing ointment. Right now it's on my hands and on my lips. I like this product. There's almost no scent, it's not greasy and absorbs easily. I checked out the ingredients: shea butter and oat kernel oil, but no lanolin. It's a good product for sensitive skin. I have a feeling I will also be using this on my son's chapped cheeks and right under his nose.
