Skin Issues

Living in the desert has a remarkable affect to those who reside here. The desert affects us in so many ways from water consumption to the awareness of the fragility and strength surrounding us. As awe stricken and inspiring the desert can hold for those living here, it can also have less desirable effects. For example, the bitter battle of dry skin...

The minute my son was born, I knew how careful I had to be with washing his fragile skin and protecting it from harmful ingredients that make up the majority of baby products on supermarket shelves these days. I was armed with natural baby products that smelled oh so yummy and that were advised from many moms alike. However, I noticed within days his skin drying drastically. I lathered him with apricot oil and washed him so delicately...but to no avail his skin remained dry.

A friend of mine offered a trade of baby products she wasn't using for the products that were troubling my infants skin. I was given Nature's Baby Organics Shampoo and Lavender Body wash. After using it for 1 week, my son's skin was much better. No more eczema or red skin patches. We still use it today...I recommend it for everyone. Especially those living in the desert! Thanks Jess!!!

  1. I had to make a major correction this morning as it was brought to my attention that the shampoo and body wash we use was a completely different brand. Sorry for the mistake. For some reason, this past year I grouped our body wash and baby balm into the same product line because I liked them so much...just another example of Mommy Brain! I will post the miracle baby bottom balm another day.

    Thank you AGAIN Jess:)
