Why I stopped using lotion

meet the blogger

For someone who would wake up in the middle of the night and scratch their legs so hard, they would bruise… I’d be a bit crazy to stop using lotion, right?

Well no… let me explain.

We’ve been told that in order to heal dry skin you need to moisturize it.

And to do that – you grab a bottle of body lotion and lather it on! I’ve used everything from Aveeno to the premium hydrating body moisturizers with Glycerin and cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid… and NOTHING compares to what I use now.

And it’s not the type of lotion you’ve ever seen before… well I hadn’t until I started using it 9 months ago. Let’s just say the BEES are keeping my skin smooth and moisturized these days.

What I’ve learned

While most lotions attempt to ADD moisture to your skin, what they are really doing is keeping your skin reliant on them to stay moist. 

But this is unnecessary… your skin is perfect and has a natural system to keep itself moisturized. 

In fact, your body continuously regenerates a new layer of skin every 28 days… it’s amazing!

It merely needs a few essential nutrients to support this process of regeneration, which is why MIG uses 100% Farm Fresh Beeswax in each of their Lotion Bars. Also called Serum Stick.

Beeswax is an antiseptic, which nourishes and cleanses your skin while preventing future breakouts. It is also breathable, and an incredible humectant allowing your skin to both attract and retain moisture. 

Beeswax truly transforms skin from dry and lifeless to radiant and glowing. And one of the best parts is you only use it once daily!

Life simplified and beautified!

How to apply

  1. Before getting in the shower I use the detoxifying dry brush to release toxins, smooth skin, and rejuvenates my body.
  2. While cleansing in the shower I use both the body wash (pump) and the cleansing bar.
  3. Right after I turn off the water while my skin is still damp I smear the lotion stick over my arms, legs, and body… then rub into my warm, wet skin before I get out of the shower. Yes! I keep the lotion bar in the shower. Apply a very small amount onto arms and legs paying close attention to elbows, hands, and knees.
  4. When I get out of the shower I grab my towel and pat dry.

I help females who want a strategic online marketing plan go from feeling stuck and stagnant to having a confident, brand-focused business. I believe the key to establishing a lasting business is being able to use your personal experiences to connect with others. Using my Stay in Your Lane Brand Method, I offer women a roadmap to discover the fortune (influence!) that lies within their brand and leverage it to make their business more profitable faster.

As a coach's wife, most weekends are spent cheering on my husband's basketball team, attending sporting events here in Cape Girardeau, Missouri... or traveling to warmer weather!
