Winter Skin

Can I just say HALLELUJAH before anything else!? HALLELUJAH!! I just have to give you a praise report-- A HEALING REPORT.  When my daughter was born she was born with a strawberry mark on her lower back and one leg.  Her first winter she had a huge dry red patch, eczema, on her cheek and her birthmarks were also dry and itchy.  It was a frustrating ordeal that lasted about 3 years.  We removed wheat from her diet for awhile and she was tested for other allergies.  We had to use special fragrance free and mild soaps and lotions.  I always felt so bad for my daughter to have such a uncomfortable ailment.  I also felt like a big meanie when I yelled at her to stop itching her skin.  

It is January and my daughter's skin seems moist not dry!  :)  No eczema creeping up  no itching skin anywhere.  :)  I remember the bill from the Dermatologist office it was frightening but even that bill God took care of for us!  :)  Dermalogcia care was important!  I am so thankful my daughter is not suffering with itchy, dry, peeling, flaking skin! Even her birth marks are starting to lighten up and the one on her back is not very visible.  :)  One thing I hope continues to lighten up as she grows.  

Have you ever suffered from dry skin?  Or how about dry skin on birth marks? 

Thank -you Jesus for taking care of my Selah and her skin!  AMEN

I suffer from dry skin, and so does my daughter. When she was a baby we used lynscoil (the nipple cream) and it helped a lot. I find the products that have the less amount of chemicals in them are the ones that work the best for us. Thank-you for sharing your praise report.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
