Coping with Super Cold Weather...& George's Cream Giveaway!

When I woke up this morning, the temperature outside was -19 C, with 20 km winds, which makes the temperature feel like -30 C. And we have had full blanket of snow since the middle of October!

As presented in Exhibit 1: Check out the snow below! Yes it's COLD.

 There are several ways we cope with COLD weather here. They include:
Flannel sheets and flannel jammies.
Bed socks at night.
Hot drinks and hot soups.
Lots of fresh fruit.
Creams and lotions for dry skin.
Warm hats, gloves and balaclavas.
{And just in case you are not familiar with the term balaclava, here is what they look like:}
One of the hardest things for me in winter is that the air is so dry that it makes my skin extremely dry that I often suffer from dry, cracked & bleeding knuckles. It is painful, stings and just plain hurts.  I am constantly searching for hand creams to soothe my poor knuckles. And I can't use just any cream or lotion because my skin is extremely sensitive and cannot tolerate a lot of chemicals. The folks at George's Cream contacted me and asked if I would like to try their product and I agreed. I have been using their product for over a month now and look at my hands:
Can I just say that I honestly love George's Cream! It is perfect for soothing my dry, cracked hands and it is nice and light. I have the pump of George's Light Moisturizing Cream right beside my bed and I use it every night. It is light enough that I can look at a magazine afterwards and my hands aren't  too greasy for turning pages. I have seen this cream on the shelf at the drugstore and I could kick myself for not trying it sooner!

George's Cream was developed by a pharmacist, George Doherty,  right here in Alberta. He made it in the kitchen using his wife's caker mixer over 15 years ago. He was looking to create a cream that would help those suffering  from the harsh effects of dry winters and other skin conditions such as: eczema, psoriasis, windburn, cradle cap, radiantion therapy, winter itch, swimmer's itch, cracked skin and tough skin areas.
