Winter time skin care on a budget

 

It is now February of 2017 and it has been a long and trying winter.  Rain and heavy snowfall have limited my weekend outings.  I decided to indulge in some old school beauty routines that made the long evenings indoors more enjoyable.

A leisurely, hot bath is made even more pleasant by addition of a fragrant bath foam product.  I enjoyed the light scent of Percara’s Cucumber and Aloe Bath Foam.  It makes lots and lots of bubbles and left my skin very soft.  I used Dove soap along with the bath foam and found the scents did not clash.  To keep my skin adequately moisturized I used Express Hydration Body Lotion by Nivea after my bath.  I have continued to use this combination of products since mid-January and my skin has remained soft throughout the cold and damp weather.

It is not always true that one has to spend an extravagant amount of money to find a good moisturizer.  I have found the line of anti-aging and anti-wrinkle skin creams made by U (Universal Distribution Center) just right.  My skin is sensitive so I stick to products I can trust.  All of U’s creams have the same base that contains glycerin, collagen, as well as Vitamins A and E.  Since I could not find the anti-aging cream I went with U’s Anti-Wrinkle Skin Cream.  It has a lighter consistency and absorbs more quickly into my skin.  This cream also works well as a base under liquid foundation, blush and a finishing of powder.

The Percara Aloe and Cucumber Bath Foam and U’s Anti-Wrinkle Skin Cream cost $1.19 each and are available at Deal 99 cents and up in Bay Ridge Brooklyn.

Store Information:  Deal 99 cents and Up, 7109 Third Avenue, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.
