Words hurt the most, and I have a long memory. I can remember every time I’ve ever been teased on the playground or in the classroom, just like I can remember every nice thing that has been said to me. My own daughter seems to have my memory – and it makes me realize how much we should choose our words wisely. In 5th grade, I overheard a boy I thought was my friend making fun of my dry skin. I always felt embarrassed to walk by him after that. I tried everything to fix it.
I assure you I found comfort in my own skin way before this – at some beautiful point in early adulthood – when I realized what I wanted in this world, and who I wanted to be. That said, dry skin still changed the way I lived my life. I’d wear socks, pants and even boots on a warm day – rather than show my knees or feet. Sometimes, I’d wear a jean jacket on a warm day rather than show my arms. And you all know I love summer. I’m all about sundresses and the feel of warm sun on my skin!
I’m someone who has skin problems during transitions and changes. I’ve never been good at them to begin with, but when you travel or move, you might experience water and air changes rather suddenly. I’m so happy that this is no longer yet another thing to worry about during travel/transition/moving, etc. Recently at Walmart, I bought something new. I found Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer in the skincare aisle. I was intrigued to find out how about the wet skin part!
This is the time of year to bare my arms and legs, and I don’t want anything to stop me. Until now, I had never found anything that COMPLETELY took care of the problem. I was excited to try Curél Hydra Therapy because it absorbs immediately and is completely greaseless. It has a feel good texture that makes me happy to use it on these hot and sticky days of summer. I was also looking for a product that’s easy to incorporate into my daily routine. I put it on right after my shower while my skin is still wet. It felt funny at first, because I was afraid it would get on my towel, but it didn’t at all!
You may be wondering why it’s better to use Curél Hydra Therapy on wet skin vs. dry skin. It’s because after showering, your skin cells expand – which provides an easy pathway for moisture into just-showered skin. If you like metaphors, like I do, your skin cells expand like a sponge after showering – and Curél Hydra Therapy penetrates deeply into the surface of your skin, bringing moisture to the source of dryness. And it contains ceramides, which are naturally present in healthy skin.
Ceramides are vital building blocks to maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier. When they are lost, skin becomes dry and damaged. Curél Hydra Therapy penetrates to the source of dryness – helping to replenish the skin’s ceramide levels and repair the moisture barrier. The combination of ceramides and Hydra Therapy is unique to the market – and will end dry skin if applied daily. My skin is healthy-looking, soft-feeling, moisturized, and smooth! I am so happy it’s summer now.
The thing is, I was never happy with other lotions. They either felt greasy when I put them on, or they felt heavy and hard to absorb. Sometimes the results wouldn’t last past lunch, or they wouldn’t even last past breakfast! My skin would be dry.
Curél Hydra Therapy is lightweight, and glides on easily. My skin felt soft after the first use! Now my dry skin is over, because I’ve been applying this daily just after my morning shower.
