Super dry

After my shower tonight my skin did something that sucks.  It got super dry.  I lotion it, it helps kinda, but I still feel like my face, my hands, my feet are just dying for a little bit of moisture.  I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to dryness.  I have lotion, lots of it, by my bed, at work, in the car and in my purse.  I never am without chapstick.  I gotta know that I can moisturize at will.  I know that it's my own fault. No one needs to take a shower as hot as I do but I love it!  I also love that just lotioned feel.  I swear I can almost hear my skin sigh in relief it's so great. 
Tonight I was reminded though of a little story about my best friend.  Courtney has a heck of a time with her skin.  She always has.  Until she did Accutane she had years of trial and error and lots of irritation and break outs to contend with.  She used to be on a heck of slew of potions from her dermatologist.  Some of those in the slew made her skin quite dry.  She delt with it.  Now Courtney can get a bit ridiculous, shrieky even when she gets worked up.  And aside from myself and her husband, no one can get Courtney quite as riled as my family.  Courtney came with us for our first big family vacation.  We went to Florida...actually drove together in a giant van.  I distinctly remember an incident in the van during which mom and Courtney were talking about her Cetaphil moisturizer.  Courtney needed it, she was simply drying out.  They went on and on and on about the Cetaphil.  It was never ending.  We all got frustrated with the situation as people are more annoying in small spaces and I told her to deal with it until we stopped and could dig her bag outta the back.  She simply yelled back at me "THERE WILL BE NO END TO THE MADNESS WHILE I AM DRY LIKE THIS!"  Yep.  It happened.  I will never forget it.  I though about it last night and it made me laugh out loud.  Me and my maddening dryness.  God love my best friend!  She's good for a laugh even a decade after the fact.  Now I challenge you, try not to think about her yelling "there will be no end to the madness" the next time you are desperately scrounging for some lotion.     



  1. I am the queen of dry skin, it sucks, nothing to be proud of either...just something I've always had to live with. If you have serious dry skin you could try Amlactin...but if you use it on parts of your skin that aren't actually dry it will give you a rash, just sayin. Best hand lotion is probably silicone glove hand cream by AVON...no joke the best. And in the winter time I use Mary Kay's hand cream on my face and the summer I use velocity. Hope that helps!!

  2. I feel Courtney's pain. I was on Accutane. Cetaphil is the ONLY moisturizer I will put on my face.


  3. that girl's madness will never end and that is one of the reasons why we love her so!

  4. Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had
    to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I'm completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will
    be able to share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog
    owners. Appreciate it!

  12. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
