Dry Skin Lotion
|Spring is definitely here and that means summer is on its way. Here in Utah, that means that we are already seeing the beginning signs of dry skin. I wanted to make a lotion that would help the skin retain its moisture. Keeping the skin moisturized is very important because it helps the skin retain its youthful appearance. Come fight the signs of aging with this dry skin fighting moisturizer!
I used Hydrovance because it is a super moisturizer and does not leave behind the stickiness of glycerin. Try this lotion. Apply it to the back of one hand and not the other. At the end of the day, note how each hand feels. One will be soft and silky; the other will be dry, scaly and rough. Don’t believe me? Request a sample in your order today! Try the power (and enjoy the luxury) of Hydrovance today.
Tamanu Oil was also added to the formulation. (I couldn’t resist.) As many of you know, I absolutely adore Tamanu Oil. I believe this oil should have a place in every soap makers closet, on every vanity and in every medicine cabinet. It is so incredible in soften the skin and helping the skin stay hydrated. I can’t say enough good things about Tamanu Oil!
Collect Needed Items:
Weigh everything except the Optiphen into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Using an immersion blender, mix the solution together. Stir occasionally while the lotion cools. When the lotion has cooled to below 120 F, the Optiphen can then be added. Stir well and pour into containers. Enjoy!
Note: I did not add a fragrance to this lotion. If you would like a fragrance, add it with the Optiphen in this recipe. Remember, the sky is the limit.
