Beauty Breadown of the Week: Vitabath Skincare Products

When was the last time you used a gelee? What about an exfoliating sugar scrub? If you’re lacking on the gelee in your life, you’re going to love hearing about my brand crush (yes, I have a crush on them): Vitabath. I’m from a family of women who soak up lotion faster than you can say “dry elbows”. They apply creams and ointments to their hands, arms and legs like it’s going out of style, but unfortunately, motherhood has other ideas. Nothing is more drying and damaging to hands or cuticles than constant dish washing, bubble bath giving and gardening.Salma Hayek and Nicole Richie's skin is exposed to all kinds of temperatures

Since the women in my family are always battling dry skin and hands, I surprised them with Vitabath goodies for the holidays (it’s like pure gold around these parts). Items like the Plus For Dry Skin set make perfect gifts (including the Exfoliating Sugar Scrub and Moisturizing Gelee). But even if the holidays are now over, there is no reason not to satisfy your New Year’s resolutions with these hydrating, healthy-skin tips….Plus for Dry Skin

More Tips For Healing Dry, Winter Skin:

  • Cut Down The Water: There is no way you can avoid showering or washing the dishes forever, by try to keep your skin’s exposure to extremely hot water at a minimum. If you do love a scalding bath now and again, make sure you apply a super hydrating body oil immediately after you’re done, and add a thick, emollient lotion to skin while it’s still damp.
  • Scrub To Smooth: Exfoliating dry and flaky skin might seem counterproductive, but it actually helps give you a “fresh start” from the cold winter air. Use a gentle exfoliant before bed (preferably mixed with a moisturizing oil), and follow up a super thick ointment or lotion (something with a texture similar to Vaseline can work wonders). So what if you’re sticky and shiny? You’ll be smooth and sleek in the morning.

Skincare and Holiday Traveling

By Tracy Cox, Vitabath Staff Writer

The holidays bring merriment, good food, family and love.  But they also bring two slightly less savory aspects: holiday traveling and holiday skincare.  The good news is Vitabath serves as a practical solution to both!

With the chilly air and frosty snowfall comes itchy, red skin that dries out easily.  Vitabath is here to replace lost moisture to the skin and facilitate the healing process.  Starting in the shower, with our moisturizing Bath and Shower Gelee or Gelee Soap, and ending with our Moisturizing Lotion and 20% Shea Butter Hand Crème, Vitabath is here to keep the winter off your skin.  This is especially helpful when you’re traveling to a different location and aren’t sure how your skin will react to a new environment.  It’s good to keep the product you already know you love, and know will Spa Travel Setsupplement your skin, with you when you go.

That’s where the Vitabath Travel Set comes in so handy!  The bottles in our travel set are small enough not only to fit comfortably inside your luggage, but they’re also small enough to take on a plane!  So you know that when you go traveling this holiday season, that you can bring the comfort of your favorite brand to ensure the comfort of your only skin.

SkinIt’s easy to hop out of the shower in the morning, towel off, put on your shoes and run for the door on a busy morning but don’t forget that important step of moisturizing!  Sure, moisturizing after your morning shower keeps you smelling like your favorite Vitabath® fragrance, but it does a lot more than that!

Why do we moisturize?

  • To maintain suppleness

  • Protect the skin from weather or free radicalsWoman Moisturizing

What causes dry skin?

  • Weather
  • Advanced age
  • Medication
  • Hormones

  • Sun tanning

What happens when we forget to moisturize?

  • Skin loses elasticity- wrinkles start to appear!
  • Skin becomes red and blotchy
  • Skin becomes itchy and flaky

What does Vitabath® Moisturizing Lotion do for you?

  • Creatine in the formula revitalizes cell energy to boost skin firmness
  • Amino acids replenish moisture
  • Vitamins A & E are antioxidants and protect against free radicals in the environment
  • Aloe vera helps skin heal

So what’s the best way to moisturize?

PLUS for Dry SkinRight after you get out of the shower, when the bathroom is still steamy and your skin is still slightly damp.  Moisturizing before you’re 100% dry will lock the moisture into your skin and maximize its positive affects.

So don’t skip this important step, you’ll thank yourself later!
