Can you relate? You know that feeling of skin scratched beyond comfortable? Add winter and it just makes matters worse. I find myself searching for really, really good creams this time of year for not only myself but for my mom, sister and my little one who has a few dry patches on his otherwise soft little cheeks.I just want a cream that works. That takes the itchiness away and soothes the red irritations.
My mom always had dry cracked hands to the point of bleeding soreness. As a child, I remember how she was always trying different hand creams to help soothe the pain but had reactions and sometimes stinging or they were too fragrant for her liking.
I may have just found the right product for her! The SkinFix Body Repair Paste is all natural and botanically rich. It contains no harmful chemicals, preservatives, fragrances, fillers, sulphates, parabens, PEG’s, gluten, steroids or colour.
We are learning so much these days about how chemicals and toxins are affecting our bodies. It’s not only important to be aware of what we eat or drink but it’s also important to remember that what we put ON our bodies get absorbed as well. So, I’m more and more interested in choosing all-natural products overall.
But SkinFix Body Repair Paste is no new product! In 1850, a pharmacy in England created a formula that was made of all natural ingredients and rich with emollients. The cream was sold in small units to customers who were seeking relief from irritated skin conditions. Originally whipped up by the father and son pharmacists, the cream quickly became well sought after. It was known under the family’s name “Dickson’s” and the secret recipe continued to be made by the family for a few years.
In 1871, the family recipe made it’s way across the pond to Halifax where residents welcomed its relief as the harsh Canadian winters and hard work made for rougher and drier skin conditions. SkinFix, a national skin care brand, approached the family and bought the formula and is now making the product available nationally.
I had a chance to meet up with Amy Gordinier-Regan, President, SkinFix Inc. during her one-on-one press meetings in Toronto. She mentioned that SkinFix has kept up the traditional remedies and methods with the skin sciences of today in order to thrive in the modern skincare market. “It takes an entire day to create one batch of the product to ensure that the highest quality and standards are met and that we are in keeping with the family’s traditions, ” says Amy Gordinier-Regan, President, SkinFix Inc.
“Skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis have risen substantially in the last 20 years,” says Amy Gordinier-Regan, President, SkinFix Inc. “…Dry patches or rough elbows and heels can also be painful. Enough Already!“
The SkinFix Body Repair Paste (112 g for $18.99) has the ability to treat common skin irritations and can be used on any age and anywhere…yes, from diaper rash to even “there” for those of you who are in menopause dryness stage. But seriously, the cream hydrates, soothes, heals and protects the skin from irritation and future flare ups.
It’s centuries’ old formula is tried and true with a loyal following and has the ability to treat most common skin conditions including eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, diaper rash, bug bites, cracked heels and whoa…even acne?! and more. And you only need to use a small amount! Amy Gordinier-Regan also tells me that she’s got very dry skin and uses the SkinFix Body Repair Paste as a night time facial moisturizer. (I was envying her glowing skin and had to ask!)
