Soft Smooth Skin Naturally

I used to work out at the YWCA almost daily when we lived about two blocks away from it. One day after my workout, I was putting on lotion after my shower. A lady walked by me and said, “Wow, you really pamper yourself, don’t you!” I responded, this is a necessity. If I didn’t put lotion on my skin after my shower, I would turn as white as you. We both laughed and then she said she would try it. I never saw her again to find out whether or not she tried it. However, I do know that everyone needs to moisturize their skin after a shower or bath because most soaps really dry your skin.

The main ingredient in soaps that is drying to your skin is sodium lauryl sulfate. It is the same ingredient that is used in cleaning products to remove oily stains and residue. Why would anyone want to use that on their skin? You should only use soaps on your skin and hair that do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate. After bathing, always use a skin moisturizer. A lotion works well in warm weather but a thicker cream like shea butter is better when the weather is cold and drying to the skin. Either one will moisturize your skin but if your skin is oily, opt for the lotion.
