Some of my favorite body products are those that smell amazing and do good to my skin. Years ago I learned about filler ingredients in body products that clog your skin pores and don't moisturize very effectively. I also struggle with seasonal eczema made worse by all the dish washing and diaper changing that comes along with mommy life. I'm always on the lookout for a go to product to revive my skin and infuse some moisture into my poor winter dryness. Farmhouse Fresh products are quickly becoming a favorite, offering amazing fragrances without all the chemicals AND effectively moisturizing my skin. I used to not be able to use any scented products and I think this was because so many of them are packed with artificial ingredients. Even on my worst dry skin day, this Whoppie Cream gift set from Farmhouse Fresh rejuvenates my skin within the luxurious fragrance of buttercream frosting.
The Farmhouse Fresh Whoopie Cream gift set includes a lovely soy blend candle, Shea butter hand cream, Shea butter body lotion, and Whoopie Cream body wash. All of these products smell amazing; they are lightly sweet and not greasy at all, moisturizing where it counts and leaving my skin feeling soft and silky. I especially love the hand cream, I can tuck it into my purse to rub on when out and about in the cold winter weather. It moisturizes all my winter rough patches on my hands, helps heal my dry cracking skin, and soothes eczema heat rash. Did I mention it smells amazing, just like buttercream frosting!
Winter can be such a battle to keep my skin feeling soft and hydrated. My hands can get so bad they require daily attention and I have to be intentional about which tasks I do. Life around the house is made a lot easier on my hands with a few simple tips.
Limit hand washing - I only wash my hands after using the bathroom, before preparing a meal, and before feeding the baby. Any other time I try to limit how much water I get on my hands. This means instead of washing, I can wipe off any glue from my hands after doing a craft project. I can also rinse my fingers with a bit of soap instead of my whole hand, because my skin gets the most dry between my knuckles. Sometimes I finish a cleaning project and then go use the bathroom to combine two activities into one, before fully washing my hands. Moms can find themselves washing their hands several times an hour, which can really worsen dry skin.
Wear gloves at night - Wearing gloves while I sleep is a great way to infuse moisture back into my hands. Winter night air can really suck the moisture out of my skin. I slather on a layer of naturally formulated moisturizer like the Farmhouse Fresh Whoopie Cream hand cream and put on some soft cotton gloves before going to bed. Running the humidifier while you are sleeping also helps relieve eczema and dry skin, as well as moisturize your nasal passages and relieve congestion.
Wear gloves for dish washing and cleaning - Prolonged time in water is never good for my hands and dry skin. I started wearing heavy duty waterproof gloves for cleaning the bathroom and washing dishes and I've seen a huge difference in the overall dryness of my skin. I find my skin can sometimes never catch up between all the washing and cleaning which means my dry skin cracks and becomes painful. Wearing gloves is an effective way to keep my home and kitchen clean without sacrificing my skin. I can even apply the Whoopie Cream hand cream, slip on my waterproof gloves, and go to town washing a whole sink full of dishes while my skin is rejuvenated inside the gloves. When cleaning the bathroom sometimes I use disposable gloves that I can throw away after.
Consider which soaps you use - Some soaps can really dry out your skin with harsh ingredients or fillers. I love soaps that contain aloe, natural oils, Shea butter, and gentle glycerin. Some soaps even have coconut oil and essential oils in them. When you find a good soap you will be able to really tell the difference in how it affects your skin. Just stay away from any soap that contains lye, artificial fragrances, or glitter.
Apply moisturizer several times a day - I've found applying too much lotion is ineffective because it never gives my hands a chance to heal. Too little lotion and my hands dry out. I try to put on a natural lotion when I begin seeing dry flaky patches on my hands. My body does heal itself and the lotion just helps my skin retain moisture while it is healing.
