Winter is coming, and that means dry legs and elbow season. During the summer my legs don't get too dry, as my skin is generally quite normal However, in the winter, my skin goes crazy and responds to the cold by trying it's best to resemble snake skin. I find the worst affected area tends to be my shins, and to combat this, I like to pull out my trusty Vaseline moisturiser.
This bottle is actually one that I picked up from Japan a while ago, so I'm not sure if the packaging is the same as in England but I'm sure the product isn't that different. I'm a big fan of this moisturiser for a few reasons. Firstly, it does a great job at getting rid of the snake-like look of my winter legs and replacing them with lovely, soft and smooth ones instead. It also sinks in really quickly, which is great when I'm in a rush as I absolutely hate the feeling of trying to squeeze into jeans whilst my legs are still slimey from moisturiser; it's quite enough of a struggle to get them on as it is thank you very much. Although it's not as thick as my usual choice of mosituriser (various thick body butters), I find it still does a good job of locking in moisture - as the name suggests - and keeping my legs moisturised for the rest of the day.
Do you any of you struggle with the same snake-skin leg syndrome? How do you deal with it, I'd love to know!
