Thank you for Georges Special Dry Skin Cream!!

Such a fantastic testimonial on our George’s Special Dry Skin Cream from Brennan H. in Montreal, Quebec!  We are quite appreciative at receiving the same hence us doing all that we do at George’s Cream so rewarding!

“I just want to express my appreciation for your product.  I am 38 years old and have suffered from eczema my entire life.  While it has decreased with age, I still get the occasional flare up on my hands and arms which can easily be managed with prescription cortisone creams but I would also get it on my eyelids and that was a big problem since I cannot use those creams on my face.  Many of the products I tried did not provide enough moisturizing, were expensive and often caused even more irritation to the area.  I came across George’s Special Dry Skin Cream at Loblaws two years ago and have been using it every day since.  A small amount provides plenty of moisture to my skin without that greasy feeling.  Thank you for making this product available and so affordable!

Your customer for life,

Brennan Huard-Rozeboom

Tips to nourish your dry skin this winter

While we can escape freezing temperatures by hibernating with hot cocoa and a pile of magazines, it’s nearly impossible to hide our skin from the harsh, dry weather. The overall lack of humidity in the air pulls moisture out of the skin quicker very quickly.  In order to remedy this, we’ve gathered some pampering tips for your skin that will leave you feeling like you’ve just stepped out of the spa. Well, almost.

1.Turn it down a notch

If you’re like us, then you love long hot, heavenly showers when the temperatures are less than ideal outside. Although it feels great, the steamy water opens your pores and dehydrates the skin, making this whole dry skin situation much worse. Trade those lengthy showers for shorter ones with warm water. When you get out, pat (don’t rub!) your skin dry and apply lotion when your skin is still slightly damp, which will help to lock in moisture.

2. Choose the right products

For the body:  Many soaps can be very drying because they strip the skin of natural oils. Stick to creamy moisturizing formulas.  As for lotion, use products that have antioxidants and plant-based oils, which will nourish and protect the skin. We recommend a rich body lotion or moisturizing cream like George’s Cream which has shea butter, macadamia seed oil, honey, and vitamin E.

For the face and neck:  Make sure you’re using a gentle, hydrating facial cleanser. A harsh formula may work for your skin during the summer months, but you need a mild one in the winter so that it won’t dry or irritate your skin.  Use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, which will help lock-in your skin’s natural moisture and restore lipids.

3. Polish and brighten

Exfoliation is key. It keeps your skin smooth, which helps products to really sink in and work better. It’s normal for skin to regenerate by shedding old, dead skin cells, but sometimes it needs a little help in this department. If dead skin cells aren’t sloughed off, then thick, dry skin can form. Prevent this from happening by exfoliating once or twice a week, but be gentle! Too much exfoliation can aggravate your skin and can make the situation worse. For your body, pick up a pair of exfoliating gloves, which can be used with your body wash, and get to work! It’s literally the greatest thing ever.

4. Treat yourself

Applying a hydrating mask once or twice a week which will work wonders in the skin-repairing department. Or, channel your inner Martha Stewart and make your own.  For super soft and hydrated skin, just combine 1/2 ripe avocado, one teaspoon of plain yogurt and 1/2 teaspoon of honey. (You can also use this on your hair)

5. Don’t forget the lips

A simple lip balm with spf will work wonders, ensure you apply it daily.

6. Up the ante

Make sure you’re drinking at least eight to 10 glasses of water a day. We’re told this all the time because it’s good for overall health, but staying hydrated packs a huge punch in the form of skincare benefits. Also, incorporating omega-3 fatty acids into your diet will help enable your skin to retain it’s own moisture. Eat a lot of salmon or take the easy route by taking a fish oil supplement daily. Unless you happen to really enjoy salmon, in which case, be our guest.

George’s Testimonial – My marvellous hand

Hi George
I’ve always had some eczema on my left hand and this year it covered my hand. The skin was so tight it hurt to make a fist. It looked so awful I would try to hide it at meetings.
While in Maui, the humidity made it go away. But it roared back almost as soon as we deplaned back in Calgary.
Then my wife reminded me of slathering your cream on at night and covering it with a cotton glove. Last night was the third night I did the glove thing and this morning I have matching hands. They both look healthy.
Your cream works as well as Maui does. For a fraction of the cost. (Though Maui was way more fun. )
Cheers
George 2
