And now you're smiling too.
And with spring's arrival that means summer is just around the corner.
Aaaaand now you're smiling wider. You're welcome.
So. In the meantime, it's still winter. Boo. Have you got the scritchy-stretch-rub-wriggle-heebiejeebies-scratchy itches from dry winter skin?
I don't. Not anymore. Not since I started using handcrafted soaps and lotions. If you start using handcrafted soaps and you'll only need lotion once in a while. It really does makes a difference.
Why? Because Feeding the Habit handcrafted soaps are made with skin loving oils and butters. Not only that they are made with more oils than what is needed to make soap. Wut? Yeah, that's right. I add more oils than what is technically needed to make "soap" by the scientific method/description.
I do what's called "superfatting". Superfatting is loading in additional oils that are left to free range in the bar. That's why you feel "slippery clean" rather than squeaky clean when you step from the shower. Slippery clean are those oils are lounging around and helping keep things NOT scritchy-scratchy itchy.
Squeaky clean is when you wash away all your natural oils by using detergents. Your body creates those oils for a reason. Why are you washing them down the drain? Keep them, they're yours.
The only way you're going to see that I'm right is try it for yourself. Buy a couple of bars and give it whirl. And don't give me a load of bunk about how you like your shower gel and pouf. That pouffy thing that you love so much? When was the last time you replaced it? Think about it....so its hung around all wet with your left-over skin attached to it for how long? A month? Two months? 6 months? (Insert note of sarcasm here--->) Oooooo, nummy! Let's scrub a little human souffle around our naughty bits and pieces. That's sound like its so much better for you than a nice fresh bar of soap doesn't?
Buy a bar. Do it. You'll be glad you did. Come on over to the soapy dark side. Not only do we have cookies, we don't have dry itchy skin.
In the meantime, stay sudsy my friends! Stay Sudsy.
