Grandma 4444's has narrow (AAAA) feet. Mr.4444 ended up with size A-width, and Kendall has to choose her shoes carefully but only inherited the freaky feat on a mild level. That said, I'm sure she'd take the AAAA feet over the dry skin that she inherited from me. I have shame-filled memories of embarrassing "OMG--Your hands are so dry!" comments back in my Rollerina Days. However, Kendall's skin is even more dry than mine. She has embarrassing memories, too, such as the time she lent a boy a pencil in 7th grade and their hands touched for a second, inspiring him to cry out, "Holy crap! Your hands are really dry!!" Poor kid avoids high-5ing anyone, having been called out for having incredibly dry hands. Now that she has a "real" boyfriend, the status of her hand moisture has become high on her priority list; every morning on the way to school, she applies lotion (just before arriving school, of course, because everyone knows hand lotion doesn't last all day. She's gone through many, many brands of lotion, and she's finally found one that she loves!
When I won some Skin MD + SPF 15 Shielding Lotion on a blog, I gave it to Kendall to try. She said it worked, but she just couldn't get past the scent of sunscreen in it. I chalked it off as another lotion for the back of the cupboard, as far as Kendall was concerned, but then I got the opportunity from the Skin MD folks to review their lotion (for free!) and learned that they also have Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, so that's the one I chose. I'm very happy to report that Kendall loves it!!
Personally, I don't have anything against sunscreen in my hand lotion (especially since I've started to get age spots, and am not ready to have "grandma hands"). I don't have to wear lotion all the time, honestly, but I really like the Skin MD Shielding Lotion +SPF 15 and easily understood how it got its name--I can put it on and wash my hands later without it washing right off; it's water resistant, but not greasy. It held up really well, and I felt like this aspect of the lotion is worth the price--It's not cheap, but it's not cheap, you know? Not sure it's worth it? Go to their website and request a free sample. All you have to do is send them a self-addressed, stamped envelope, and the samples are yours. If you like it, you can buy five bottles for the price of three--Mother's Day is right around the corner.... :)
This time of year, my skin becomes especially dry, and I have a bad habit of picking at my hangnails. Using the Skin MD skin care products is making a difference for me (and for Kendall!). I highly recommend it.
