Rocky Mountain Dry: How to Keep Your Skin Supple in Dry Conditions

I’m in Denver right now and the absurdly dry air has put me in crisis lockdown mode. My skin is so dry I fear that if I smile my face will simply crack and crumble.  I am slathering Aquaphor on my lips ever ten seconds like Rain Man. All I can think about is where my next bottle of water is coming from.  I’m a disaster.  I cannot wait to get to my hotel room where I can take the necessary steps to regaining normalcy.  Thank the beauty gods I had the good sense to come prepared:

1)  SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel: This miracle serum adds instant hydration.  First I spritz on a hydrating toner, then I pat on the B5 Gel, and follow with a moisturizer

2)   Decleor Aroma Night Neroli Essential Night Balm: Simply divine.  Don’t be fooled by the thick consistency. It literally melts into your skin and it smells amazing.  After toning and applying B5, I take my time massaging the balm into my skin

3)   Aquaphor: I have lip balms in every imaginable flavor, color, and miracle ingredient. Nothing conquers extremely dry conditions like Aquaphor
