Mom-of-three Heydy Lopez on how she keeps her family’s skin soft and smooth all year round.
As a self-proclaimed skincare junkie and mother of three, I’m constantly on the hunt for skin care products that are not only perfect for my kids, but great for dad, too. mother and the rest of the family.
I find that our skin is more prone to dryness and irritation during the colder months, and for us in Alberta, that means around September – which means we take skin care very seriously during the winter. This family! That’s why I’ve put together some tips on how to keep the whole family’s skin looking young.
Wash with gentle, fragrance-free detergents
Fragrances and dyes are often harsh on more sensitive skin. That’s why it’s always a good idea to look for a cleanser that’s fragrance-free and dermatologist-tested.
Use moisturizer immediately after drying wet skin
The key to keeping skin soft? Moisturize as soon as skin is dry after bathing. And that goes for everyone, from the youngest sibling to great-grandparents.
Add moisture to the air
Buying humidifiers and placing them in the rooms we use the most, such as our bedrooms and family rooms, has been really helpful.
Try Bioderma Atoderm
The weather is cooler and dry skin is on the way, that’s why I wanted to try Bioderma Atoderm — it’s the perfect range to prevent and treat dry skin and help prevent dryness problems skin, like eczema flare-ups, for anyone six months or older (which means it’s good for my whole family!). Whenever I can buy an item that works for all of us, I just have to have it!
We tried the Bioderma Atoderm Cleansing Oil, which gently cleanses the skin and provides up to 24 hours of instant moisture without the greasy feel I expect with an oily skin product. And Bioderma Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Cream, which we also tried, immediately soothed skin with a burst of hydration that left us feeling silky soft. Plus, there’s the Atoderm Intensive Balm which is extremely gentle and rich in nutrients, yet absorbed into our skin very quickly.
The entire Bioderma Atoderm product line is not only dermatologically tested, but I am delighted to find this luxurious formula is also affordable. I love that my whole family can use it, even with our different skin types, and that I don’t have to go to the specialty store to buy it: I can pick up a bottle at the nearest Shoppers Drug Mart .
