“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

~Jim Rohn

I implore you, “Who doesn’t put moisturizer on their body after a shower?”

I’ll tell you who””me. Well, not now, but after I had my twin sons and was in “newborn-and-nursing-every-two-hours” land, I had no time to wash my face, let alone moisturize my body. Yes, you heard it right: I did not wash my face for six months postpartum with my twin sons. In a sleep-deprived state, I convinced myself that it was unnecessary and so I just didn’t do it.

I don’t really know how my skin looked””everything was sorta a fog, but I’m here to tell ya that now I do wash my face, twice a day, and I moisturize after showers.

My favorite moisturizer? Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Body Lotion. Wow, this stuff is good, and so reasonably priced, especially if you get the really big bottle.

I’m super picky about body lotion””can’t deal with greasy or smelly stuff””and this is awesome. It’s non-greasy and has a nice clean smell that doesn’t overpower.

Have the best day ever!
