Moisturize While Cleansing

tn_soapmixedSkiing is a big part of life in Colorado, where my friend recently moved. He has really gotten into snow sports in his first winter in Boulder. Unfortunately, he has been suffering from dry, cracked skin from being out so often in the winter air. Not all moisturizers are created equally, as he soon learned.

I recommended that he start using products that use shea butter. Shea butter is a complex fat that melts at body temperature and is rapidly absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. I bought him some homemade shea butter soap that I use. It cleanses and moisturizes the skin at the same time. I also sent him a container of shea butter he can keep at his office to moisturize his red, cracked hands. He called and said that the shea butter has been working wonders and he is much more comfortable in his skin.
