6 Soaps That Will Change Everything
Posted by Ivory Bella in Hands & Feet
We use our hands every single day: working, shopping, typing, you name it! We take them for granted and don’t realize just how much wear and tear we put them through, which is why changing one key beauty product can make all the difference. Soap, a simple, yet extremely important and overlooked part of our everyday routine, can make or break our hands. The antibacterial soaps that we count on to keep us healthy can leave hands rough and dry, and others can suck nutrients out of our skin. It’s time to put that boring liquid soap pump on the top shelf, as it contains a lot of water, and get back into the more concentrated, luxurious experience of lathering creamy, scented bubbles in your hands with warm water and feeling truly soft and clean. Take a look at these nourishing soaps to put in your bathroom A.S.A.P.!
