It’s winter in my part of the world, which means central heating… which means dry, dry, dry… super dry…
Yes, we do have a humidifier and it does help (a lot) but I need to moisturize daily and for that I use Aveeno products. However, I’ve found that two moisturizers are better than one – especially when that moisturizer is coconut oil. It goes on a bit oily at first, but after a few minutes the oiliness vanishes and it leaves my arms and legs feeling silky soft. Believe it or not, I even put a bit of it in my hair.
I have a gigantic jar of it (from Costco) and every day I was going to the pantry, scooping out a little bit with a spoon and heading back to the bathroom. I finally got the bright idea to put a little bit in a container to keep handy by the bathtub (duh).
I found a tin that used to hold some scrapbooking supplies, peeled off the top sticker, gave the tin a good washing with soap and water, then glued a piece of new, pretty paper to the lid.
Because the oil is in a semi-hardened state, I gently heated some and then poured it into the tin and let it re-set (I like things to look pretty).
Pretty, simple, and effective. It may even make a nice little gift!
