Chicago winters are terrible on my skin. The cold dry air always causes me to get itchy dry skin patches, especially on my arms and legs. As a runner, I am also outdoors a lot in winter, running in cold weather and getting wind chapped.   Then, I always travel someplace warm for the holidays […]


Hand and Foot Care


Hands and Feet are often the most neglected body parts when it comes to a body care routine.  The soles of the feet are rich in nerve endings and even a simple foot massage every day can keep them in great shape and health. Foot care does not have to be an ordeal. Simple things […]

A Look at Gloves in a Bottle

Gloves in a bottle

Gloves in a Bottle is a shielding lotion that helps keep irritants from bothering the skin, while keeping moisture in. I recently used a bottle of this over a period of a week and was pretty happy with it. I tend to have issues with my hands getting dry, especially when I use the computer […]
