Clean Skin , is Happy Skin !
We know how an important it is to wash our hands , but our kids tend to not to remember to keep their hands as clean . So remind your child to wash their hands after being outside , with soap and warm water . With our little ones , we bathe them every night ourselves . As they get older , we let them bathe by themselves remind your children to clean their faces , underarms , and behind those ears.
Kid Friendly , and Mommy Approved
In the winter time , the rough dry air isn't just harmful and hard on the plants . But it can be just as harsh , and rough on our skin as well. We have to remember that our skin , is not the same as our child's . Their skin can't handle harsh cosmetics products so find products that our gentle on their skin. So try to find mild soaps and moistruizers .
