Winter brings on the dry skin

Here in Phoenix, AZ the weather is FINALLY turning into winter weather (who knows how long this will last.) Us”zonies” love this cooler weather- so we say- yet we end up complaining how cold it is when it is actually here haha. Typical if you were born an raised here (guilty)

I noticed this week my son; Asher’s skin has been super dry- it’s also eczema season! Thank god he doesn’t get it too bad and a simple lotion every night lotion clears him right up!

Me, on the other hand, I struggle keeping my face moist. It never fails every year to get dry. Finally, after using SOO many different expensive day and night creams I did some research and with some trial and error I finally found my cure! Hope it can help you too.

——->Vitamin E gel capsules

Yep! Vitamin E! It works wonders!- Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. EVEN if you have that “sensitive” skin that is prone to breakouts-it still works! You can get vitamin E caps pretty much anywhere and they are inexpensive.

My routine:
1. Wash face with gentle cleanser or whatever it is you before bed
2. Use your toner, if you don’t have toner it’s no biggie
3. Break open your vitamin E gel cap and put on problem areas. You will wake up with your skin soooo soft- you have my word! Enjoy!

Here are a few other benefits of Vitamin E:

Christmas Wreath DIY

I recently posted my DIY wreath and I got a lot of crap because I said “reef” I’m pretty good at typos- I was so excited I didn’t even noticed my mistake, whoops! 😉

I also got a lot of message on how I did that in 20 minutes and also how it only cost my about 7 dollars to make.

I originally found two different WREATHS I liked and ended up going with the easiest- even though I may seem crafty I’m not that great at it and I take as many short cuts as I can. Just being honest!

The first wreath I was going to do was a peppermint candy wreath which I got from this site:

I still wouldn’t mind trying that one but it seems timing consuming. If you do it let me know how that goes! Haha.

So I stuck with:

http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/12/6-dollar-wire-hanger-christmas-ornament.html

Followed every step and I actually did go to the dollar store and loaded up on Christmas ball ornaments-in colors I wanted to use. My suggestion is using a hot glue gun when you’re done so that the balls do stay in place. Also do mix the tiny balls with the big it gave it a fuller look. I also used a pre made ribbon instead of making my own-it was easier and still covered the hanger!

Good luck friends! Who would of thought a wire hanger could come in handy ehhhh 😉

CHEERS!
