Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essentials Lotion and Intensive Repair Hand Creme Review and Giveaway

****Update: Entry deadline is Now Monday 11/29/10 at midnight due to Cyber Monday********

With winter being here, it is time to increase your use of lotion and hand creme.  To do that, Eucerin now has a Fast Absorbing formula of their Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essentials Lotion and Hand Creme.  I recently tried them both and I have to say it really does make a difference!  I live in the desert and not only is it dry outside, but using a heater inside the house can dry my skin. 

I love using Eucerin right out of the shower but also reapplying the hand creme after each hand washing and after doing dishes.  Even sifting through papers at work can be drying to my hands so I keep some of my desk at work.  It's amazing how many men at work use hand creme too -or at least they should! 

Have you been asking yourself these questions and making excuses?  Here are some answers from Eucerin.
"I have enough going on during the winter - why should I add my skin to my to-do list?"

With the upcoming holidays, planning of winter activities and visiting family and friends, you don't want to add one more thing to your day. But dry skin can occur when your skin is exposed to temperature changes like dry, cold or windy weather - and don't be fooled into thinking it's just the outdoor weather that can harm you, indoor heat can cause skin to dry out as well.

Dry skin affects up to 20 percent of the population and can put skin at risk for bacterial, viral and fungal infections, making moisturizing extra necessary. Moisturizers like Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essentials bind water to the skin for long lasting moisturization. The result: a softer and more elastic stratum corneum with strengthened protective properties.

"I use moisturizers and cleansers on my body when I shower, is that good enough?"
When you're cleaning and moisturizing, don't forget about your hands. Some people tend to forget how important they are to overall skin health and focus on their face and neck. Your hands get into everything, from scalding hot water in the kitchen sink to the freezing cold outdoor temperatures. You can protect your hands by choosing washes and moisturizers designed to replace lost lipids, maintain the physiological pH of your hands' stratum corneum and promote skin's natural renewal process. Also, when going outside in the cold weather, always wear gloves!
