Winter Season - Dry skin - Best Soap?
What is the best and healthiest soap for the skin? This time of year, after I get out of the shower, my skin is always dry and flaky. I usually rub a little ovlive oil on my skin, and that helps, but I'd rather get some soap that could do it for me.

I saw this
[link to www.clearlynaturabunny]

Is it any good?
Any other suggestions?

Dove works for me. In the dead cold of winter, i put baby oil on a wet wash cloth and wipe of the shower water like a squeegee the i towel dry.

It definately improves your dryness.

Re: Winter Season - Dry skin - Best Soap?
get a filter for your shower to filter out the chlorine--that is the most drying thing.

bather don't shower, put a little bath oil in the water.

coconut oil or olive oil, use a little while your skin is still wet, best solution.

dove soap is the only one with the proper pH, you could try a bar. they have one that smells like roses, nice.

your link doesn't work. what is naturabunny, anyway?

Get a good humidifier.

It's not the soap and water or it would happen year round. It helps so much with static fly-away hair too.

Use soap sparingly if you have dry skin...
Dr Bronner's Castile Soap is a good non-drying one ! flower
Drink LOTS of good water to keep your skin hydrated too !

Wash with Dove. Use Eucerin, I like the cream. It works for my baby's eczema. Apply as soon as you get out of the shower.

Yep, Dove Body Wash does the trick. I live in Arizona where some days we have almost negative humidty and you spend all day itching. You can buy Dove Body Wash at Walmart for around $3.50 for 33 ounces. Works great.

Use olive oil soaps made in Greece, Syria,Turkey without any perfumes or additives.!!
Look for the natural variant sun dried.!!! Looks like a cube.!!

These are produced as was done thousands of years ago,sun dried and are excellent plus that they are cheap and sustain a long life.!!!

Olive oil soap without chemicals added is HORRIBLE in unpurified water.If your water is at all hard, pure olive oil soap will be the most miserable thing you could use.
It's great stuff if you have pure water, but otherwise it's worse than anything I have ever used.Makes a horrible scum in the tub, too.

Re: Winter Season - Dry skin - Best Soap?
Glycerin soap is much easier on your skin than regular soaps. After our first child was born, my skin started breaking out in little bumps with regular soap, switched to glycerin soap and have had no problems since.

Neutrogena is really good, but there are less expensive types.

Also, after bath or shower while you're still wet, put about a quarter size puddle of baby oil in your hands, warm it a bit, then on to your wet skin, then air dry. This seals in the moisture while your skin is still 'plumped up' from the bath.

Lots of drinking water is important too, not just for your skin but also your blood pressure and other body functions which shall go unnamed. LOL

Cheers!

guys, all those soaps have parabens in them and loads of other toxic chemicals...
use natural soaps...such as castille or coconut, etc.
You can find many in wholefood stores.

Cassie, you are dead on with that advice. Also, I do beleive that humidifiers prevent abductions by Grays.

use a moisturizing bodywash if you want, but for soft smooth skin, use Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion after you shower.

"Kiss My Face olive oil soap"
Again, you olive oil soap supporters are doing a great disservice to people if you don't include the caveat that it requires soft water to work.
The hazardous chemicals in commercial soaps are there to counteract hard water.If you have neither soft water, nor those chemicals, you have one nasty bathing experience ahead of you.

Coconut oil is like magic. Stopped red, cracking hands and flaky skin. Be sure to use oil made to be eaten--if you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin. Olive oil is fairly good, but is oilier and stays on the skin. Coconut disappears and keeps skin moist without any greasiness. Of course, drink lots of water. Juiced vegs, added to a good diet, are also very helpful. Substitute animal and polyunsaturated veg fats with coconut oil in your diet.

I've been experimenting with not using soap every single time I shower. You just rinse your body with water and it does the trick just fine. Try not to use water that is to hot as this will destroy lipids in the top layer of skin that you need to keep your skin moist and supple.

Cocoa butter lotion.

And Scrub! The best thing ever is bath salts in oil. Get your honey to scrub you up, then rinse. Smells good and feels good (watch the slippery tub though). Body shop has lemony bath salt scrub and it lasts, for about 18 bucks.

55708:
I am an olive oil fan, but if you have experience with both olive oil and coconut oil, where do you buy it?
You can get olive oil in most any store that sells food.
Also, since tropical oils in general are not recommended for eating, doesn't that kind of contradict what you said, which I agree with, to not put anything on your skin which you would not eat?
Also, regarding olive oil, if you buy a store brand of spray olive oil, which doesn't include silicone as an anti-foaming agent, the foaming action makes the oil penetrate much more quickly.
Olive oil can be difficult to absorb, but it will absorb, completely, given time.If you use liquid olive oil, and apply it generously, it may take a couple hours to completely absorb.

If you don't check the labels, it is often the case that products that work "just super" are filled with hazardous chemicals that are not really good for you,long term.
I may need to look more deeply at this site, but I don't see where it lists the individual ingredients.
On the other hand, if the product doesn't have these chemicals, and you don't have soft water, the product will not work well, at all.

Re: Winter Season - Dry skin - Best Soap?
Wow thanks for all the advice.

I don't know what happened with my original link, but I think it might have been changed for some reason.

"It's not the soap and water or it would happen year round"

It actually is year round, just a little worse in the fall/winter.

The link I originally posted was for Clearly Natural Soaps, made from glycerine that comes from vegetables. No animal fats or extra chemicals are added.

I bought a regular bar of soap from them and have used it about 5 times so far. It definitely has a healthier feel on my skin, and my dryness has improved a little bit. I guess it will take some more time.

As for my water, it is really hard. I guess I should also look into getting a filter for the showerhead. Thanks for all the advice again. I'll definitely look into it.

boil up a bunch of chamomile tea bags, let it steep for like an hour, and pour the water without the bags into a bathtub of filtered water (chlorine is the absolute worst...if no filter, let the water sit for like an hour to allow the chlorine gas to dissipate out) and soak for up to an hour

this is from a ph.d. in herb biology's book
