Beware the super-hot shower or bath

Our skin requires just as much care during Winter as in the hot weather. You are just in from the cold or feel like the need for heat!  Super-hot showers and baths are a no no as they may dry the skin out excessively because soaking in very hot water can cause the lipid barries in the skin to break down, which can lead to a loss of moisture.

To prevent your skin from losing moisture and becoming dry, irritated and painful this Winter, grab your goat soap and soft handmade cotton face washer (both in Kit) and enjoy a quick warm shower/bath.

Apply a moisturiser immediately after a bath or shower as this will help lock in moisture and replace the natural oils lost. Remember to moisturise your hands and feet every day too.  We have included Skin Basics Sorbolene Cream, Thursday Plantation Aloe Vera Gel and ThankYou hand cream to help with Winter’s dry skin problems.

Consult your medical team if you have any concerns about your skin.
