As the Queen Mamá of this home I have way too much responsibility on my hands (don’t we all?) But really, I do.
My husband travels a lot for work leaving me and the kids alone for weeks at a time — at times it gets tough trying to care for them, WORK, maintain the home and well, keep my sanity. Exhausting is putting it mildly.
Despite all of that craziness, I am well aware of the importance of maintaining our family’s healthy and well-being (even through Skype I remind my husband to wear sunscreen or moisturize his dry elbows that he’s been complaining about!) and focus on having everyone happy and healthy.
This winter has been icky — with the flu, which means lots of mocos (ewwww) and ridiculously dry and itchy skin. Everyone was complaining that their hands were dry, cracked and sore so we had to go into full moisturizing mode!
I made sure we all had a moisturizer in every room so that we could use it when needed. My poor son refused to wash his hands because he said it hurt too much — so he LOVED having to use cremita!
I think he actually over moisturized saying it was “tan rico y suavecito!”
When my husband is home, he sits down to watch the nightly news and generously lathers cream on his hands. I swear — it’s so funny, he looks like a viejita, but his hands are so dry he has no choice.
It’s just one of those things that you have to do (my hands get so bad they bleed!) and Lubriderm has a moisturizer for every need — advanced therapy, daily moisture, daily with sunscreen, daily with shea and calming lavender (soooo good!) AND the new Men’s 3-in-Lotion (body, face and post-shave) which my husband said was “better than that other stuff.”
That right there is the best review he’s ever given of anything.
I guess it’s true what they say, “the family that moisturizes together, stays together”… or something like that!
