Lotion Soap....mmmm good!

I get so tired of dry hands and dry skin in the winter. Not long ago we were in a doctor's office or hospital or somewhere... anyway, after washing my hands they felt like I had just put lotion on my hands. So today I decided to see if I couldn't come up with something like that.

Since we have any number of lotions around the house (trying to find one that will work..sigh), I picked up the soap for the dispenser and some lotion we bought to try and voila'...

I filled the dispenser about 3/4 full with the soap and then finished filling it with the lotion. I stirred them together, replaced the dispenser top and then shook it really well to continue to mix the two. Felt so good when I did the experimental first try..grin It still has plenty of suds and washes the hands without leaving them feeling like sandpaper.

I don't think this will totally replace using lotion on my hands, but it will keep them from drying out completely with every wash of the hands.

How Clever! Winter dry hands are awful.
