another reason why i'm not a winter fan - dry, rough, itchy skin. moisturizing with lotion or cream seems to be the quick fix but honestly it's not [for me & my little girl's case]. so it's time to find some alternative.
after a few online searches, my problem was solved - oatmeal body scrub!
pour half a cup of oatmeal inside an old clean sock.
tie a knot & cut the excess sock.
it's best to use the oatmeal scrub after rinsing with soap. dip it in warm water & constantly squeeze or wring while scrubbing all over the body. the water will be milky but not sticky at all. soak for about 10-15 minutes & then rinse with water.
(optional & messy) i take out whatever is left of the oatmeal & do a final body scrub before rinsing.
my simple, inexpensive & effective solution for dry skin. she gets the oatmeal scrub every two days & her skin stays soft & smooth all the time. [i use 1 cup for my weekly scrub].
