Our skin doesn’t receive enough credit. It is our body’s largest organ that holds all the other organs together. It is what others see when they look at us. It is what makes us unique. It is perfectly imperfect, filled with freckles and birthmarks. If only there was a way to tell our skin, “Thank you.” To nourish and make it feel loved. The most meaningful, “I love you’s,” are the ones that are genuine, with no extra gimmicks. A simple, authentic “I love you” is a message worth longing to hear. For your skin, this could mean applying simple moisturizers such as aloe vera or rice milk. Aloe comes from such an ordinary plant, yet has the power to heal burns and dryness. Rice milk helps settle the skins and exchanges unwanted blemishes for a youthful glow.
The Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Body Lotion and Hand Cream is specifically made for sensitive skin, and will surely let your skin know the gratitude you feel for it. This moisturizer includes simple key ingredients such as aloe vera, rice milk, shea butter and jojoba oil that your skin will love. Take a moment to tell your body thank you for being so kind and resilient, for it allows us to dance through life and all that comes with it.
