The vet would give her a steroid shot and she would be so much better within a few days. The vet said we could do allergy testing, but it was very expensive, and it was probably just something associated with our HVAC unit that was triggering it when the heat came on.  After a few years, we moved, and Jewels fall allergy wasn’t nearly as bad.

Jewel also gets feline acne on occasion.  The vet suggested we buy the circle acne pads that are made for very sensitive skin and use them on her face a few times a week.  It seemed to work, but we were never sure what was really causing it.

Working in a large print shop maintaining a level specific level is humidity in the air is important to keeping the presses running smoothly.  While it may be important, it doesn’t always happen. Often times, the paper sucks all the moisture out of the air and quite often my skin is left very dry.  Its worse in winter when the humidity level is very low due to the heat flowing through the building.

I was thrilled when Adovia offered me the chance to review their Daily Moisturizer Cream1x1.trans Winters Coming!
