12 Days Of Skin Tips {$100 Gift Card Giveaway}

‘Tis the season to moisturize! With a New Year right around the corner, it’s never too late to take charge of your skin. As you reflect on the past year and look forward to the next, commit to putting the health of your skin first. Skin stress that appears during the holidays can be the result of a lack of moisture, especially if you live in a colder climate.

Here are 12 days of skin tips from Eucerin to give your skin the beautiful and healthy-looking holiday glow it deserves:

1)      Cold, dry, winter weather can be tough on your hands, wear gloves to help keep them protected against harsh winter elements.

2)      Keep your showers short and sweet and use lukewarm water. Bathing for long periods in hot water can cause skin to lose natural oils and nutrients.

3)      Winter can wreak havoc on your skin because there is less moisture in the air, low humidity. Give your skin a boost and run a humidifier at night to help add moisture.

4)      Relieve dryness associated with frequent hand washing by washing with lukewarm water, using a gentle soap, and applying moisturizer right after drying your hands.

5)      3 steps to revive dry feet. 1) Remove dry, flaky skin with a pumice stone. 2) Apply a rich moisturizer, like Eucerin’s Aquaphor Healing Ointment before bed. 3) Throw on a pair of socks to lock in the moisture and go to sleep!

6)      Try Eucerin Calming Crème (with oatmeal) to help dry, itchy skin this season.

7)      Chemicals and allergens in certain makeups, perfumes, soaps, and detergents can cause skin irritation. Avoid products that you know have irritated your skin and use gentle cleansers!

8)      Snow reflects sunlight, making it important to wear an SPF product like Eucerin Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion SPF 30 all year round for protection from UVA and UVB rays.

9)      Coarse fabrics can cause itchiness if you have sensitive skin. Go for something silky!

10)   Getting a full six to eight hours of sleep is important for your overall well-being and helps your skin look its best. Get to bed early to get plenty of shut-eye

11)   Tame chapped lips. For lip hydration, try applying a few drops of olive oil and honey or pick up Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect SPF 30.

12)   Wind can act like sandpaper when constantly hitting exposed skin. Protect skin with a rich moisturizer and bundle up with hats and scarves.

$75 Whole Foods Gift Card & Eucerin Lotion Giveaway

Thanksgiving is over and now it’s time to think about the holidays. To start the season off we are having a Holiday Turkey Hunt blog hop where over 50 blogs are each offering prizes valued at over $25 and there’s also a grand prize giveaway hosted at The WIC Project for a $135 Amazon Gift Card.

Here at Making Time For Mommy I’m happy to introduce Eucerin, the skin care company that is sponsoring my giveaway. I’ve worked with them for the past 6 months or so and have learned so much about skin care and their products. Each month that I’ve worked with them there has been a theme of the month and for the month of November the theme is “Healthy Foods For Healthy Skin”. I have never put that much thought into how what I eat affects my skin but I’ve learned this month that it does. The skin experts over at Eucerin recommend eating foods with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Omega-3s whenever you can.  That’s something I’m definitely going to make sure that I think about when choosing my weekly menu plan.

To help keep skin healthy, Eucerin is offering one of my readers a great prize package!
