It's my fault, I admit it. Yesterday I took my Katie (16) to the Ear, Nose and Throat doctor once again.
Katie has had allergies, specifically mold, since I can remember. Recently she has been sick on and off . Her ears have been horribly blocked and has had plenty of headaches and migraines to go along with that.
Kate's doctor, who is French Canadian by the way, what is it with us and Canadian doctors? Anyway he cleaned her ears out and REMINDED me that she has exema in her ears!
Oh stupid me!! I forgot. What kind of a mother would forget something like that I ask you? Because of the excess dry skin in her ears, she is supposed to get her ears cleaned every six months at the doctors office.
Anyway she feels so much better now, headaches gone, ears are clearer, still on antibiotics as a precaution. I should have remembered this. Katie had it when she was a baby on her feet. I used to have to bath her little feet in a special soap and use Aquaphor on them.
So now I must remember to take her back in the office in six months.
Did you know that ENT doctors don't advise using Q-tips in your ears. Or cleaning solutions. The Q-tips can actually push excess wax into one's ears. I've actually had bits of cotton removed from my ear from Q-tips but I still use them. Old and stubborn I guess.
Katie doesn't use them at all.
So now that we all know what a crappy mother I am, I decided to do something I rarely do here. I am going to tout a product I have recently discovered.
Besides being an old and crappy mother, I also have had problems with very dry skin. It's getting like old lady skin, all thin, dry and wrinkly. I have been trying all different types of products.
All of the name brand and store brand lotions and creams with all of the same results, it soaks in my skin and then it's dry all over again.
Well last week while looking for the next new miracle cream to try, I came across this...
Yes it's good old fashioned Vaseline but with a new twist. It has Cocoa Butter in it. And it cost around $2.00. So I thought "Why not give it a try". It's a little different from regular Vaseline, not quite as greasy. It also soaks into the skin more as opposed to laying on top.
I started using it on my body and my face. A little bit goes a long way and my skin just loves it.
Now I wouldn't say that I look twenty years younger but I will say that my skin is much, much softer without feeling greasy.
So there you have it, my Vaseline commercial. I would highly recommend this. For the price you can't go wrong.
Oh and it has a nice , very light , cocoa butter scent. My husband and dogs just love it.
So if you too are suffering from old, wrinkly,dry skin, give it a try. All you'll have to lose is about $2.00!!
