It's not everyday that I can say that I've found something new to help the dry conditions of a winter skin. Well, today's the day. While perusing "Bellaonline" in the quilting forum I found a discussion about making hand made Hand Cream. This discussion talked to me, believe me. I have the dryest skin in creation, cracks around my thumb nail (so painful) and dry elbows to mention a few problems.
Off to Dollar General to buy the ingredients:
A 16 oz. bottle of Baby Lotion (Pink Bottle)
An 8 oz Jar of Vaseline
An 8 oz Jar of Vitamin E Cream.
Now, how to put it all together....simply empty all the contaianers into a medium size mixing bowl and beat with your electric mixer until smoth and creamy. Oh it is so pretty, light and smells so good. I am told that it will not turn and will last forever. Time will tell! Imagine and all for under $5.
I put some back into the vitamin E bottle and the rest into a plastic container with a lid. Will offer small batches to my friends and neighbors.
I waited to post this until I had tried it and I have to say it really works. I have a small pretty jar on my bedstand, one in the kitchen by the sink and one in the living room where I settle in to relax and watch TV, knit or crochet.
Catch you next time. Try this you might like it!!!!!!
