Genie BS: MudWimminzes: Your Self-Care Routine? (72* d) RE: BS: MudWimminzes: Your Self-Care Routine? 03 Jan 13

Sandra, I was about to add a note about Udderly Smooth lotions and creams too.

I used to buy the big tub of Udderly Smooth cream (basically a bovine udder cream that's now packaged for human skin care) at Trader Joe's, but they haven't carried it in recent years. Then I discovered that most of the Dollar Tree stores carry the small (3 oz., I think) Udderly Smooth hand cream, so I keep those little tubes around.

These creams and lotions do not leave any oily or greasy residue and have only the faintest scent, which does not set off my nose the way most soaps, hand creams, and lotions do.
Crowhugger, I DK if you've tried Udderly Smooth or any other udder cream, but you might find it suits your needs for lotions.

BTW, something I have not used in a while but want to start using again is witch hazel.
It's hard to find the pure extract with no added alcohol or scent, but witch hazel is very useful for skin care (if you aren't prone to roseacea), eye care, and even hemorrhoids.*

I used to sometimes soak cotton pads in witch hazel and rest for about 10 min. with those pads on my eyelids.   This relieves and refreshes tired eyes and removes any bloodshot-iness.      I understand that witch hazel is a natural astringent that doesn't dry your skin the way alcohol and many other astringents do.   It's soothing for sunburn, as well as being a natural cleanser. Witch hazel's antioxidant properties can supposedly destroy some of the free radicals that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out your skin's texture.   

*BTW, Preparation H applied to the skin below the eyes can be used to tighten the skin and reduced the lines and bagginess there. Just be sure not to get any of it IN your eyes!
