5 Almost Free Things To Do This Weekend 11.6.10

Guest Contributor: Miss Cozy

As the air gets drier in the colder weather, it’s time to start moisturizing to the max!  Might also want to switch to heavier creams during this time of year.  This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to change lines or companies, since most skin-care lines have a variety of products to meet different needs. Switching between lighter to heavier creams, can rejuvenate your whole skin-care process. Now is a good time to try lotions that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic or lactic acid, which are highly recommended to reverse dry skin and invisible lines at a deeper level.
