Sweater Weather (read: dry skin weather).

Colder weather is rapidly approaching, teammates, and though I am more than ready to bust out my variety of crew and turtle neck sweaters, I am less enthused that the moisture is starting to drain out of my skin. You all know the feeling: itchy, chalky skin that starts about now.

Rather than sit back and let my skin begin to resemble a lizard’s, I decided to get ahead of the game and start some trial and error on hand creams.  I wanted to focus on my hands because a. my hands are most exposed to the elements during the winter and b. your hands show your age, and I want to look 25 until I’m 45. AMIRIGHT?

For the next month, I’m going to try the below hand creams, and at the end of the month, I’ll let you know which one worked best and for what reasons. Are you excited? I am!
