In Praise Of Aquaphor—Or—How I De-Chapped My Cheeks
After being outside on a particularly blustery and cold night this weekend, I woke up Sunday to extremely red, blotchy, splotchy, scary cheeks. Yup, I had chapped cheeks, common ailment of babies and children everywhere. Not a good look for me, and my fairly expensive face lotion wasn’t helping a bit. So I popped online to google "chapped cheeks, baby" and was saved by the infinite wisdom of mothers. Aquaphor, I found out, is the fix of choice. I felt ridiculous slathering something with the consistency and lovely sheen of Vaseline on my cheeks (mmm, oily and splotchy red! delicious!) but lo and behold, within hours the nasty chap was gone! I’m now convinced that Aquaphor Healing Ointment is miraculous.
What’s your winter chap cure?
