Thank you to Palmer’s for sponsoring today’s post. All thoughts and opinions on their products and selection are my own.
Utah winters are rough to say the least… It is freezing cold, where we live we are snowed in a lot (okay maybe that is exaggerating, but I hate shoveling our massive steep driveway so I just say we are snowed in), and my skin is always itchy, peels a ton, and is crazy dry. King’s eczema always seems to flare up in the winter months as well so we are always on the hunt for products that work better than the one we were using before. I’m excited to share our routine and how Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Original Solid Jar plays a huge roll in it.
Making sure that we have a good skincare routine not only for myself but for my littles as well is super important. It is something that I make sure not only I stick to but also that Zach sticks to the routine too when getting the kids ready for the day or putting them to bed. I feel like consistency is a huge key to keeping your skin moisturized in the dry winter months.
Our routine is pretty simple, but something that we truly sick to. I can always tell when we go a few days without our routine and get all crazy that we get back into it ASAP. Here is our winter skincare routine and some tips & tricks to keeping your skin moisturized through the dry months.
3 Tips to Keeping Your Skin Hydrated This Winter
1 – Moisturize morning and night. We have found that using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is game changing for our skin. I put it on my littles every night before putting their pajamas on and also put it on myself before heading to bed every night. If our skin is struggling then we apply twice a day. I have a really hard time with my heels and them cracking so I lather them up for an overnight treatment and it is amazing the difference it makes. It smells delicious and doesn’t leave our bodies greasy at all either.

2 – Don’t over bath or shower your littles. Yes it is important, but using soap on them constantly and having them sit in the water really dries out their skin. Our doctor recommended that if we do want King to bath every day that we don’t use soap on him every day and that it will really make a difference in his skin. I use soap daily on myself where I exercise every day but make sure that I am using a soap that is a good quality and doesn’t dry my skin out.
3 – Drink plenty of water. I can always tell by how chapped my lips are if I am drinking enough water, and when they are chapped I used my Palmer’s Cocoa Butter on them also. Drinking enough water is a big part of keeping your skin hydrated in the dry months. I also make sure where King and I struggle with dry lips to put Palmer’s Cocoa Butter on both of us at night and I also use it as a primer for my lipstick and it works wonders!
I feel like finding the right products that work for your and your skin type is key to keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized through the dry months. The things that we do in our routines are super simple but make a huge difference in how our skin is. I would love to know if you struggle with dry skin in the winter months like my family does.
