With winter knocking on the door, we have started to receive phone calls and emails asking what we recommend for wintery dry skin. We enjoy being asked this question for a number of reasons. First off, it is part of the reason why we started making soap in the first place. We wanted people to have an all-natural soap that wasn’t going to leave your hands feeling dry and itchy. Secondly, we know that our products work. There is a lot of talk in the media about all-natural alternatives, but not all of them work. All of us here at Alabu get excited because we know that when someone calls looking for soap for dry skin, we can point them toward any of our soaps and know that they will make a difference.
This year it is more important to use a higher quality soap that is not going to dry your hands. As we all try to avoid getting the flu, it is important to wash your hands several times throughout the day. The use of antibacterial soaps is not as important as washing your hands correctly. Most people don’t wash their hands long enough, 5-10 seconds, when they should be washing their hands 15-20 seconds. Other ways to help prevent getting the flu are gargling salt water and getting enough vitamin D. If there are ways you prevent the flu, share them with us on our Facebook page.
