Say Goodbye to Dry Skin
We have all been there when our skin is so dry it is flaking off, extremely itchy and just wanting to find relief that last and doesn't burn your now irritated skin. Not only do I personally deal with dry skin especially my hands from constantly being in water from washing, but my husband has extremely dry skin on his shins. So dry that before he started using these three products, his shins were rubbed raw leaving open sores on his legs. I would catch in the middle of the night itching his shins with his heels while he was sleeping! With his skin so irritated the last thing I wanted to do is put a product on his legs that was going to burn or bring him no relief. Understand why dry skin occurs helped create this three step process.
What is dry skin? Dry skin is a result of our skin not retaining enough moisture. Not always caused by an underlying diseases, dry skin can happen from excessive washing, harsh soaps, swimming in a chlorinated pool, rough jobs that you use your hands for, climate or in proper hydration. After all our skin is made up of 69% water! Before getting to the three steps removing any harsh soaps is the first big step.

Step 1: Soak
Soaking the skin allows it to cleanse, protect and soothe dry, irritated skin. Our Oatmeal Soak gives your skin a layer of protection that moisturizes and softens. Softening the skin so that it can easily remove dry and dead skin cells. Safe for all ages and may soak daily, always remember to keep the water warm as hot water dry's the skin out even more.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliate the layer build up of dry and dead skin cells allowing skin to renew itself and reduces redness. Our Oatmeal Polish uses ground steel cut oats to gently exfoliate without causing damage or pain to skin. Our blend of nourishing oils allows your skin to become nourished, moisturized and ready for the last step. Safe for all ages, not recommended on your face. Exfoliate once or twice a week, don't over exfoliate as that causes more irritation. If the skin is flaking then it is usually time to exfoliate, listen to your skin.
Step 3: Moisturize, Nourish & Hydrate
Keeping the skin moisturized and hydrate allows dry skin to be more manageable. Our Lavender Body Love is crafted using the same skin loving oils as our Body Love with the perfect addition of Organic Cranberry Seed Oil, Oats Extract and Lavender Essential Oil. Everything your dry skin needs to find relief. Safe for all ages. Apply to damp skin daily both morning and evening. If not applying after a bath or shower spray our Rose Mist onto the skin before applying the body butter.
