As it turns out, dry skin can be lots of fun. Momma raised me to wash until I was “squeaky clean,” but that led to copious amounts of follow-up creams and lotions. (Pond’s Cold Cream was a staple in our house.) Even the best moisturizing “beauty bars” left my skin screaming for lotion. I became a card-carrying lotion junkie, and have probably impulsed enough bath and body potions to last a lifetime.
That is, until I started making my own natural soaps. It started as a hobby that evolved over time. I played with various recipes, and have come up with one that I really enjoy. Even my husband has become a soap snob, and can’t travel without taking my soap along to use in the hotel. (Thanks, honey.) I still like my lotions and potions, and certainly still impulse buy other people’s natural soaps, but I’ll never buy another “beauty bar” from the store — and my skin no longer screams for help.
You can find which soaps are currently available at Etsy or in the You Do Yoga lobby.
