Eucerin with Extra Virgin Olive Oil -The only thing I don't like about Eucerin is that it takes some effort to rub in, which is not fun when you are feeling raw. Mixing in some EVOO solves that problem. I prefer to use this at night or when I am staying home because it leaves you very white, greasy, and smelling like an appetizer.
Baths with Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Feels great to relax in and leaves you feeling moisturized.
Oatmeal Baths - Also feels great to relax in. Another plus is that it makes the water foggy so you don't have to sit and look at your red skin.
A Hot/Cold Compress - The kind with the little gel beads in it. It was only about $10 at Walgreens and I use it every day. I freeze it for swelling and to relieve itch, and microwave it to soothe the crooks of my arms when I can't/don't want to take a bath.
Sea Salt Natural Soap Bar - Does not burn my skin + Does not dry out my skin + smells wonderful = heaven. I found this brand at Sprouts. It cost around $5 but it suds up really easily and seems to last a while.
Natural Homemade Cleaning Products - I can't even walk down the cleaning product section of Target let alone use them in my home. I have officially been converted to natural cleaning. Here are some of the recipes I have found so far:
- Glass Cleaner: 1/4 cup white vinegar, 4 cups warm water. Combine in a spray bottle and use like Windex.
- All purpose Cleaner: combine 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp dish soap, 2tbs white vinegar in a spray bottle. Shake contents, then fill bottle with warm water. Add a few drops of essential oil (ex tea trea oil and lavender oil help disifect and also smell nice). Shake.
