Y’all? Do you ever feel guilty for taking a little time out for yourself? Sometimes I feel like I should be reading more to the boys, mopping the floors or folding laundry rather then taking a little time out for myself. Well, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to do a better job at self-care. With this in mind, I’m adding a little “me time” after my morning runs with Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion.
There is nothing like hitting the pavement on a brisk, cold winter’s morning. I love the feel of the crisp air on my face and in my lungs but it can wreak havoc on my skin. I noticed my skin was beginning to dry out. I was ashy all of the time and no matter how much lotion I applied, my skin was dry and dull.
So, when I found out that Vaseline® Jelly created a lotion with cocoa butter in it I was thrilled! I was raised on cocoa butter because it’s known to help lock in moisture, hydrate the skin and keep it smooth; we didn’t dare leave the house dry and ashy haha! I decided to grab a bottle of Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ lotion from Walmart and give it a try.
I read that “Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Cocoa Radiant™ Lotion contains pure cocoa butter to leave skin deeply moisturized plus Vaseline® Jelly that absorbs deeply to heal dry skin, revealing its natural glow” and that is exactly what happened to my skin. I could not believe that after only one day my skin was softer. The next morning after applying the lotion before bed, my hands were not dry and felt very moisturized. In that moment I decided to add the lotion into my post-workout self-care routine.
After a nice long run I like to give the boys a snack and a few toys before starting my new self-care routine. I quietly slip into the other room where I take time to heal and moisturize my skin with Vaseline® Intensive Care™ lotion. Then I sip on a warm cup of tea and snuggle up with a book until the littles need my attention. I don’t have to worry about putting smudge marks on the pages as I read because the lotion is non-greasy. These quiet moments are vital to my health. But not everyone in the world is afforded this luxury. Vaseline® has partnered with Direct Relief for the The Vaseline® Healing Project.
As someone who participates in service projects around the world, I was excited to know that Vaseline® donates products to clinic’s and hospitals that have been affected by natural disasters, emergency situations and poverty stricken communities. If you want to get involved you can build a relief kit HERE.
As a passionate a member of two local service project groups; involvement in my community is very important to me. I also developed and host a weekly Run-N-Play group for moms in the area. Now that I have healthy glowing soft skin that is no longer dry and ashy, I have the confidence that I need to serve with my neighbors without having to worry about how my skin looks.
