Moisture Is the Key to Healthy Skin for Children
If you live in an area where winter weather means indoor heating, you will really need to moisturize the air to counteract the drying effect from your home’s heating system. Also remember to use an air filter to capture as many particles of dust and other irritants that can be blown around from heating ducts. These are some simple and natural preventative steps to maintaining our children’s healthy skin moisturization. However, it does not end there…we must do more.
Why is Skin So Important?
Since store brand cleansers create the problem of overdrying, adding toxins to the surface of the skin, and potentially providing health risks, we recommend switching to handmade soaps. MM has a line of handmade natural soaps to choose from. To moisturize, try a thin coating or Sun Essence Baby Oil on the entire body after showering or bathing. When towel-drying, just pat the skin and do not rub it. Otherwise, if you can, air dry before applying the Sun Essence Baby Oil. Do not put on clothing until the oil has fully absorbed, leaving the skin feeling soft but not greasy. This will take about 5 minutes.
