Winter Dryness Ahead: MY Fave Lotion AmLactin® Giveaway #Sponsored

This is a sponsored post brought to you by AmLactin®.

Hi! My name is Heather Murphy-Raines and I have plucked chicken skin. Yeah I said it!!

As an influencer, I get approached by a lot of brands, you guys.  A lot!!  However, I am picky. Incredibly picky. I only promote products I use, would use and love!  So imagine how excited I was when I was approached to share my favorite lotion AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion with y'all.  No brainer!! 

People, I have used this lotion on the DAILY for almost five years.

I buy vats of it at Costco...and then my teen daughter steals it and it's back online to get some more! Seriously it's that good.  I visited my sister a few years back, misplaced my bottle of it, tore her house apart looking for it, left as a sad panda, and when she finally found it, she offered to mail it to me...that good!!  No joke!!

Here's the deal.  I get those little bumps all over my upper arms that look chicken skin.  Yeah those. 

Hello Keratosis Pilaris (ker-uh-TOE-sis pih-LAIR-is).  KP for short.

"Keratosis Pilaris creates havoc with the skin's surface as a raised, rough, bumpy texture and uneven nutmeg-grater appearance forms. It is often quite noticeable. Inflammation within each hair follicle can cause embarrassing pinpoint red or brown polka dots to form beneath each miniature mound of keratin. Seasonal fluctuations can be seen with improvement more likely during the summer." Dr. Oz.

Hello people.  Winter is COMING!!! And after that, SPRING which means we won't be able to hide behind scarves, chunky knits, mittens, and tights.

Funny enough, I actually didn't know that KP even had a name -- other than annoying dry bumps-- until a friend mentioned she noticed mine because she had it. Yeah I immediately covered my arms, but hey good friends tell it how it is. To think, I just thought my skin was bumpy.

Always bumpy.

Since I was a teen, I would try to squeeze those bumps like pimples.  I would use tools meant for thick calluses on my feet to try to exfoliate my skin... until it bled. Yeah I know so wrong, but gahhh bumps go away!!!  So finding AmLactin® Moisturizing Body Lotion was what made a huge, healthier difference in improving my plucked chicken arm symptoms and it just so happens to be the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by dermatologists for rough, dry skin.

Will it cure KP?  

Uh nope. Sorry Charlie.  There is no cure for KP, but it makes an incredible difference!  It actually acts as an exfoliant with alpha-hydroxy therapy.  Know all those super scented, expensive lotions you use?  Throw them out.  This is it!! It's fragrance free with 12% lactic acid which is pH-balanced and encourages natural skin cell renewal through exfoliation combined with deep moisturization.  Bonus:  It's non-greasy so you don't feel like you need another shower or feel like you are leaving oily, dirt attracting footprints all over your carpets.  It also absorbs super fast. Most important though is the result: Smooth, silky, and less inflamed bumpy skin so no more covering your arms and more short sleeves.

Since then, I am such a fan, I've also added AmLactin® Ultra Hydrating Body Cream  next to my kitchen sink because hello dry winter, chapped hands and dish pans hands and AmLactin® Foot Cream -- which so happens to be the #1 moisturizer brand recommended by podiatrists -- for my cracked heels. Yes, this swim mom has a flip flop habit even in the dead of winter and my cracked, dry heels scream at me for it!

My goodness, y'all are going to think I am a desert...and you would be right.
