Taking care of ME!
Good Enough Mother and
Vaseline Mature Skin Rejuvenation Healing Lotion
(Disclosure: I was compensated for my review of Vaseline Mature Skin Rejuvenation Healing Lotion. All thoughts and opinions are my own)
I just turned 54 years old.
Where did the time go? It seemed like a minute ago I was going to the dermatologist regularly to deal with cystic acne that had plagued my teenage years.
In my early 20’s as a news anchor that cystic acne was more than just a nuisance; it was also unsightly.
My dermatologist at the time shoring up the advice my own mother gave me when I was a teen, counseled me on the virtues of sunscreen.
So in my 20’s I got super serious about that, wearing sunscreen religiously, even on cloudy days.
Back then I was concerned about wrinkles and skin cancer; menopause was a long way off.
But three decades passed in the blink of an eye.
Now, on the other side of menopause, I can see where taking a few steps early on, helped me preserve the only skin I have.
Along with the daily sunscreen, I stayed physically active throughout my life. I don’t mean the, jump on the treadmill 20 minutes a day type activity either. I mean heart pumping, sweat-producing, fear-conquering type of activity.
I lift weights and do several Warrior Dashes throughout the year. Sweat does skin good!
Now on the other side of menopause, I am still happy with the way I look but my skin does require a little more TLC.
So I was pleased to see Vaseline introduce their product for women just like me.
Vaseline Mature Skin Rejuvenation Healing Lotion is specially formulated to address a woman’s changing skin during menopause and is designed to help heal and balance menopausal skin from first application. Women in peri-menopause (on average between 40 and 45), menopause (on average between 45 and 55), and post-menopause (55+) may experience some of the following symptoms:
• Dry skin due to lowering levels of estrogen
• Skin dryness, cracking, redness, itch
• Imbalances in the skin (oilier in some places like face, drier in hands, legs and feet)
• Skin feels thinner and bruises more easily
The dry skin is my biggest complaint. It was dry when I was younger, but now it’s thinner and lacks that youthful glow. It needs a bit more TLC, especially if I want to run out of the house without make-up.
And I do!
Vaseline Mature Skin Rejuvenation Healing Lotion’s unique formulation contains ingredients that are tailored for menopausal skin, including high levels of glycerin for intensive moisturization, PPAR Activators help support the formation of improved and higher quality skin cells and help replenish natural lipids within the skin boosting skin’s natural renewal cycle, Vitamin B3 to help rebalance skin, and micro-droplets of Vaseline jelly which lock in moisture, relieving the tight, itchy feel of skin caused by intense dryness.
Bottom line is this: Taking care of your skin is important all throughout the life cycle but when you get to menopause, we need a bit more care. I recommend trying Vaseline Mature Skin Rejuvenation Rejuvenation Healing Lotion for a way to rejuvenate your skin without leaving it feeling or looking greasy!
