Since starting my soap making adventure I've been determined to find something that will treat my face right and keep any break outs at bay. I'm happy to say I've found the answer for my poor, fussy face! I've created a facial soap with loads of shea butter and soy butter. The combo cleans my skin without stripping it of its natural oils. This is extremely important because when my skin is dried out, it breaks out more. Also, the more dried out it is, the more my scars flake - YUCK! I've been using the my handmade facial soap for the past 3 weeks and I'm super excited about the results! I haven't had to exfoliate ONCE! My scars aren't flaking, my skin isn't dried out, my previous breakouts have cleared up and I haven't had a new breakout since! I couldn't be happier! For a moisturizer I'm still using a teeny tiny bit of my handmade body butter. Since my body butter is SO moisturizing I only need the smallest amount for my face.
If only I had got into making handmade bath and body products in my teens I might have saved my face from some of the acne scars that are there now. Oh well, what's done is done and my face and only look forward to good days to come.
I know other people will find clear, soft, smooth, skin days when I officially open Batty's Bath. I wanted to let you all know that my projected grand opening date has been moved up again! Isn't that exciting? I'm so excited for the grand opening and to offer the products that are helping me so much to others! I don't want to make any of you wait any longer than you have to for the opening. We all need to be pampered and the sooner the better! I can't give you an exact date yet, but stay tuned.
FYI: The picture above is a picture from Christmas day. I did my make up in a "winter wonderland" theme. :)
