A Reminder to Protect Your Skin With Lubriderm


Your Skin’s 1st Barrier


Protecting ourselves from the winter cold is on everyone’s minds these days.  And though we are quick to grab those warm winter accessories like scarves, earmuffs and gloves, we too often forget to add an important 1st-step barrier for our skin – LOTION.  I’ve been guilty of not moisturizing as a busy mom.  I used to religiously apply lotion post shower but after becoming a mom, I was just happy to get a shower in my busy schedule much less make time for any skincare routine!  So it was a nice reminder at the MomTrends blogger breakfast to use Lubriderm as the first layer of defense against the harsh, drying winter.  The new, Advanced Therapy lotion moisturizes skin for 24 hours so really, all I need to do is remember to stop and apply once a day.  I can do that!

It’s clinically shown to provide relief for extra dry skin.  They challenge you to try it for more resilient skin in just one week!  I tried it and can attest to how immediate the effects are!  My skin looked glowy and healthier.   It was age-defying and in my 40s, looking younger is becoming a priority!   

My husband will love this too because it is fast absorbing and you really just need to apply once for it to last all day!

Blogger Brunch

We all enjoyed a fabulous spread care of Serra by Birreria (on the rooftop of Eataly Flatiron).

We met the wonderful chef, and all got to know each other discussing what we were all busy doing this winter season.

And going along with the layering theme of the day, we took turns testing out our crafting skills and layered sand with pinecones, crystals and plants to create a DIY terrarium.
