Dry, Scaly Skin? Anyone? Anyone?

Product of the Day, February 5, 2014:

coconut oil moisturizer

I feel like we have established a relationship by now. I get you and you get me. There is no judgment. You don’t think I just sit around reading about the latest beauty product and then immediately go buy it and try it. Thank you. It means a lot.

So, I was sitting around the other day, reading a magazine article about winter skin. I don’t know about you, but as I begin to hit what I like to call adult puberty, I find that my skin has become really sensitive to most body lotions. But it’s a problem because I need to moisturize. My skin gets so dry I could be the villain in the next Spiderman movie, Scaly Mom. Her evil power? Brushing dead skin cells on the citizens of New York City.

I have tried every product out there. When all else fails, you need to travel to the land of “nothing can hurt you here”.  It’s called Whole Foods. And it’s there that I bought a huge nine dollar tub of magic. We’ve all read about the benefits of Coconut Oil. For skin care, it’s super moisturizing. After the shower, I literally take a handful and slather it on. You need to get used to the smell a bit, and you may feel a little slippery until it sets in. Just the other night Scotty was getting frisky, and he slipped right off me, hit his head on the nighstand, and passed out. I rolled over and watched Pretty Little Liars. I need to catch up. He was breathing.

I also use the oil on my hair sometimes, put a shower cap on, and rinse it off in the shower after ten minutes. I am kind of like the Martha Stewart of moisturizing right now.

And, I am no longer the supervillain. I am now Spidey’s friend, Moisturized Mama.
