4 Tips to Bundle Up with AVEENO® Brand this winter + GIVEAWAY!!


You all know I love AVEENO® brand products. I use all the products from lotions to shampoos. This winter is no different. I have my shelves stocked up. And, just in time for winter, AVEENO® has a new line of products that will help my dry skin.

AVEENO® Brand Skin Relief products are now my hubby's favorite products. His skin gets worse than mine and when I received the new products, he tried them and they really gave him relief! These are some great products.



If you have dry skin you might want to check out these products. And thanks to Dr. Francisco Flores, Hispanic Dermatologist for AVEENO® has some great tips to avoid dry skin and to improve your winter skin regimen:

1) Moisture, Moisture, Moisture
AVEENO® skin Relief 24 hour Moisturizing Lotion can help alleviate the harsh effects of cold weather exposure for long-lasting, powerful moisturizing. It helps relieve itchy, dry skin, flaking and tightness which often results in ski dehydration which often occurs during the winter months.

2) Short Showers
Take short showers, use lukewarm water and switch to a less intense, moisture rich cleanser made for sensitive skin.

3) Get Comfortable and Modify the Air the Surrounds You
Wear soft and breathable fabrics to keep your skin from chafing and becoming irritated by perspiration. Also, use a humidifier to increase moisture levels in your home.

4) Slather on Sunscreen
Sunscreen is not just for summertime. Winter sun combined with snow glare can damage your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and hands about 30 minutes before going outside and reapply frequently.

These are excellent tips. I hope you found them helpful. This winter, take care for your skin. And, remember that AVEENO® is also a great gift to give and receive! If you want to win some of the new AVEENO® Skin Relief products, just enter below on the Rafflecopter widget.

Red Rose Tea Soothes the Soul + GIVEAWAY!




I love coffee but I am down to one cup a day. So I have to make up for that. Sure, I drink lots of water but sometimes I want something else. Enter, tea.

A cup of tea soothes the soul! And I need soul soothing, a lot! There is nothing better than a cup of tea on a cold winter day. I love mine in the afternoon with a little snack. It gets me through the rest of the day and motivates me to keep working.

One of my favorite teas is Red Rose Tea. Red Rose tea has so many varieties of delicious tea to choose from. I am a huge fan of the Lemon Chiffon tea. I also love their tea cups that fit right into my Keurig.



Tea is also a wonderful gift for the holidays. How nice it would be to receive a gift of Red Rose tea. You can create a great little basket that includes Red Rose Tea, a beautiful mug, a bag of biscotti ro scones, a tea holder and a tea towel. If you know someone with a brewer like a Keurig, give them a few boxes of tea. I know I would love that!


Plus, it is always a good idea to have tea handy for your holiday guests. A little Earl Grey or Irish Breakfast teas with Christmas cookies is a wonderful treat. Have some Cinnamon Bun or Creme Caramel and give those guests a real treat!

Head over to the Red Rose website and check out some of the wonderful gift baskets they sell. Ot buy Red Rose and create your own gift baskets! Red Rose tea is a wonderful gift this holiday season!
