Why You Need This Beauty Product in Your Make-Up Bag
It’s been a top-selling beauty product for 70 years, has won numerous awards and is found in the make-up bags of top models and make-up artists around the world.
Elizabeth Arden’s “Eight Hour” Cream was developed by Arden herself in 1930. The beauty maven used it to soothe her thoroughbred horse’s bruises and it became the first beauty product to bear Elizabeth Arden’s name.
After a loyal customer claimed it helped heal her son’s cut knee in 8 hours, the product was renamed Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream and is a combination of petrolatum, beta-hydroxy and vitamin E. The petrolatum soothes and protects the skin and is an intensive moisturizer. The beta-hydroxy (salicylic) acid, which was pioneered by Arden herself, acts as a gentle exfoliator, and the vitamin E helps protect the skin from free-radical damage.

This beauty staple is so much more than a moisturizer. Available in both a fragrance and fragrance free formula, try some of these uses for Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream:
Burns & Scrapes: Whether it is a heat burn, or sunburn, liberally applying Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream will ease the soreness and help the skin heal. You can even apply a tiny amount to the ends of heat-damaged hair. Applying to a scrape will help the wound heal quicker and minimize scarring.
Cold Season: Constantly blowing your nose during cold season? Apply a small amount beneath the nostrils. It will act as a barrier to stop the delicate skin around the nostrils from becoming sore and chapped from constant nose blowing.
Chapped Heels: Cover chapped heels with a thin film at bed and throw on a pair of socks – in the morning the dry, cracked heels will be good as new.
Diaper Rash/Nipple Rash: Whether diaper rash, or sore nipples from breast-feeding, Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream not only acts as a moisturizer, it acts as a barrier to stop skin from getting raw.
Overnight Face Mask: Have a big event coming up and want a cheap facial? Slather on the cream before bed and wash off any remnants in the morning. Skin will be left ultra moisturized and baby soft.
Chapped Lips: A little goes a long way when you use this as a lip balm. It works as a lip protectant when you are out in the sun, or facing winter snowstorms.
Remember to keep a bottle in your carry-on bag when traveling. Planes are notorious for sucking the moisture out of skin. Applying Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream to face and lips when flying will help keep the skin looking its best.
