One of the most annoying side effects from my Cipro poisoning is my sore, to the touch, skin. It isn’t always present but when it is, I feel as though my skin is on fire. I mostly notice it after extended sitting, on the back of my thighs.
I have found that the soap that I have been using, from the grocery store, is no long working for me. It now leaves my skin dry and itchy. My skin seems to be much healthier and hydrated, since I have learned how to exfoliate my skin with a body scrub. After the body scrub, I like to use a body butter to moisturize it.
One of my very favorite body scrubs comes from an online source; Body Wash Supplies. It is the Mandarin Vanilla Spice Body Sugar Scrub. I have found that the salt scrubs tend to burn my already sensitive skin, but the sugar scrubs seem to soothe it. I know that the words “body scrub” don’t actually sound pleasant to already “on fire” skin; but honestly, the sugar scrub really does help to soothe my skin.
I like to follow up my body scrub, skin exfoliating, experience with one of Body Wash Supplies, Body Butters. My favorite, of course, is the Mandarin Vanilla Spice Healing Body Butter, but the Spicy Pumpkin Anti-Inflammatory runs a close second. Since I began using these products on a regular basis, I have to admit that my overly sensitive skin has improved; maybe it’s the organic ingredients or maybe it is simply the fact that I like these products so much that I am taking better care of my skin! Anyway, just though that I would share a little secret; to hopefully help other of you out there, like me.
