The Soap Tribune, Issue #103--Spring skin care

Spring Skin Care

In the Spring, many of us plant gardens and go to farmers markets to eat the very freshest food. This means lots of cooking, cleaning, preparing Spring greens, and playing with dirt.

Paying special attention to your skin care in the Spring is important. Your hands can get extra dirty and waterlogged.

Good hand soap, dish soap, and lotion helps keep your hands in tip top condition so you can reap all that Spring has to offer.

Speaking of skin care, do you ever visit someone in a nursing home? Bring them the gift of Waterless Hand Soap and LiXTiK Lip Balm. The smallest change from hand sanitizer and harsh soaps to Waterless Hand Soap, and a honey scented beeswax lip balm to sooth a resident's dry lips, will bring a smile to someone's face.

Hand wash your dishes

I had a dishwasher for 12 years. When we built our cottage house that we live in now, there was no room for a dishwasher. So, it was back to a task I always did my best to avoid.

Save electricity, save water usage, and save your skin. Get into the zen of washing dishes by hand.
