I live in AZ so I am always dealing with the results of "dry heat" with my skin and hair...I was telling my sister in law the other day how I have cracked skin everyday even after applying an ample amount of cocoa butter all over my body. She had me try Ponds facial lotion and voila! No cracks! I would have never guessed! I was about to start using vaseline again (like my mom used to do growing up:).
