After about 1.5 months in France, the dry climate has finally taken its toll on me. The skin on my hands are so dry that they become chapped and tight and then they split open so it looks as though I’d just cut my fingers. I’ve never experienced this even when I was in France before and even when i was in freezing cold Canada during the winter months!
The skin on my face has also gotten a reaction to the dryness. I conclude that I have atopic dermatitis and that the dry air here has just given me a flare.
I decided to get a hand cream today (another crack split open) at Marionnaud and I bought the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Intensive Moisturising Hand Treatment! I’m so excited to start using it and I can’t wait! I also got a free sample of Lancome’s Tresor perfume! Here’s just a little picture of the two put together:
My first Elizabeth Arden product
I’m so excited! Somehow buying beauty-related stuff always makes me happy inside.
