Winter dry air brings on itchy dry skin. One way to moisturize, (if you don’t have someone nearby to do this for you) is to slather lotion on a towel and, in the same way you dry your back in a diagonal motion with a towel, work the lotion into your skin while at the same time, exfoliating the dry skin.
Tip for More Manageable Hair
I was not having a bad hair day, I was having a bad hair week….two weeks actually! It was heavy, oily, and limp.
It suddenly occurred to me that maybe it was the expensive shampoo and conditioner I was using, which is too heavy for my hair.
I was sharing my hair woes in the locker room and my friend Susan suggested that a little Dawn dish detergent on my hair would take care of it. It sure did. I didn’t even have to use the blow dryer, my hair was nice and fluffy again.
Since then, I have done some more reading about hair products and have gone back to experimenting with different combinations of baking soda, borax, apple cider vinegar, and honey a couple of times a week. Big difference. Just a reminder that although we often think about what we are putting IN our bodies, we also should be mindful of when we are putting ON our bodies.
