I'm sure somewhere Arizona is listed as the dry skin capitol of the world. We use lotions and creams by the gallon here. If you don't, you become a prune in no time. I've been blessed (?) with dry skin all my life so I am particularly diligent about "creaming up" every day.
We've had very high drying winds the last couple of weeks and my skin was feeling particularly uncomfortable so I purchased some baby oil gel with cocoa butter and shea butter in it. I've used all three of these ingredients before so no worry -- or so I thought.
OOPS ... I slathered it on my dry legs, arms, and back and it felt sooooo nice and left my skin feeling soooo soft. But it also left me with a burning, itchy rash everywhere I had put the lotion!
It doesn't look anywhere near as bad in these photos as it does in real life ... it's firey red and burning. Word to self -- when trying something different, use just a little bit on just a small piece of skin and see how it goes. Don't bathe in the stuff!
Have a great weekend ...
Til next time,
