Conquering Dry Skin, My Favorites Part 2

This post continues the series on dry skin and how to conquer it.  The Winter of 2012 is my first after menopause so I’ve had to make changes in how I care for my skin.  Preventing and treating dryness is now the priority. Part 1 focused on my face and Part 2 outlines my favorite products for  lips, hands, and heels.*

The product for dry hands that I take with me everywhere is  Artistry Creme Caramel Hand Creme.  It comes in a 2 fl.oz. size tube which fits well in pockets and purses.  The scent is out of this world and it stays on my hands through 2 -3 washings.

For the rest of my skin, especially legs and heels I’ve discovered the new Artistry Essentials Hydrating Botanical Spa Collection.  These three products remove dry skin and moisturize like the treatments I get at the nail spa.  Also, the fragrance is so relaxing.

Finally, for chapped lips  I like the Artistry Lavish in Cashmere Lipcolor with Vitamin E and Macadamia Oil.  This is a super moisturizing formula that heals my chapped lips.   However, it’s available  for a limited time so I’m stocking up.  Go to and click on the Our Store>Beauty tabs to find my favorite products and contact me through this blog if you have any questions.
