First, start with a soap that is moisturizing. Our most moisturizing soaps are our Goat’s Milk Honey and Oats From Scratch Soap and our Avocado From Scratch Soap. Both of these soaps will leave your skin hydrated while providing excellent cleansing. These are also great to have by your sinks, especially if you wash your hands frequently. If you have extra-sensitive skin, other great soaps to try are the Castile From Scratch Soap, the Shaving From Scratch Soap, or the Goat’s Milk From Scratch Soap.
The next step to making sure your skin is not dry, itchy, or cracked is to exfoliate! Exfoliation is extremely important because it removes dried and dead skin cells that can actually exacerbate eczema and other skin issues. Our From Scratch Scrubs are a great option because they are made with coconut oil, olive oil, or a combination of both! Choose from our more aggressive salt scrubs or the finer sugar scrubs. Use just before you get out of the shower to clear your pores and leave a nice layer of moisture on your skin.
One step you definitely do not want to miss is moisturizing. HD Soap has a lot of great options for you to choose from! We have Balms, Body Butters, Lotion Bars, and our NEW From Scratch Lotion in the white tubes!
Body Butters are very rich and luxurious, and they will leave your skin feeling super soft and smooth! We have so many great options to choose from, which you may remember from a recent blog post. We have three different formulas which include our CocoShea recipe, our Mango Shea recipe, and a Whipped recipe. All of these are very hydrating for your thirsty, dry, winter skin.
