As a mom of two young children, it is not often that I get time to pamper myself. Between taking care of the kids, keeping up with this blog and other everyday life responsibilities, I’m usually running around taking care of errands and tasks all day until bedtime. However, when I do get the time to focus on myself, I really enjoy taking simple steps to make my skin, nails and hair look their best. Especially now during the cold Winter months, I find that my skin gets dry and dull unless it’s well-moisturized regularly. That’s why I was so excited about trying Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer, which is a revolutionary, new way to help the skin retain moisture! Keep reading for some general tips regarding Winter skin care, as well as a super fun tutorial for making Fizzy Bath Bombs!
Fizzy Bath Bombs and Winter Skin Tips
You may have noticed the bottle of Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer in the above photo. It’s definitely my favorite new skincare product! In fact, I’m extremely impressed by how effective and convenient this moisturizer is. It actually saves me so much time, because I can apply it to wet skin! It leaves my skin feeling hydrated, supple and healthy! The Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer is available in a number of different varieties, including Green Tea Oil, Coconut Oil and Monoi Oil. I purchased the Green Tea Oil and Coconut Oil varieties and let me just say that the scents are absolutely fresh and vibrant! I can’t wait to head back to Walmart to try the Monoi Oil variety! One of the things I love most about the Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer is that it absorbs 2X Faster for 24-hour soft skin! I simply apply it to wet skin and there’s no need to rinse it afterward- you can just dry as normal.
Now, let me show you how I made those Fizzy Bath Bombs! I promise that this is a pretty easy craft that can be completed in a short time!
I found everything I needed to make these bath bombs at my local Walmart store, while I was picking up my Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer.
Here is the printable recipe for making these Fizzy Bath Bombs!
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 10 drops of essential oil (I used lavender oil)
- silicone mold
- Optional: food coloring
- 1. Combine the baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, coconut oil and essential oil in a mixing bowl. Stir together with a whisk until it has the consistency of wet sand.
- 2. If you want to add some color to your bath bombs, add a few drops of food coloring until you achieve the desired color. Stir with a whisk until uniform in color. If you want your bath bombs to remain white, skip to Step 3.
- 3. Pour the mixture into the silicone mold. Pack it down with your hand or a spatula so that it takes the form of the mold. Let sit overnight.
- 4. Pop the bath bombs out of the mold gently. Place them in water for a fun fizzy effect and enjoy the calming effect of the lavender oil.
Now, here are a few helpful notes to consider when making these bath bombs!
You want the consistency of the mixture to be that of wet sand. If it feels too crumbly, add more oil. If it feels too soft, add more baking soda.
I wanted to make pink and blue bath bombs, so I split up my big batch of white mixture into two small bowls and used red & blue food coloring in the smaller bowls.
When pouring the mixture into the silicone molds, it’s very important to make sure you push the mixture down into the mold, so that as it dries, it takes the appropriate shape!
When it’s time to pop them out of the mold, make sure you do it gently and use the flexible silicone mold to your advantage. Pull the silicone away from the bath bomb to help keep the form intact!
The oil in these bath bombs leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth afterward.
The cold air of Winter is very harsh on my skin. However, in addition to using Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer & using my Fizzy Bath Bombs, here are some more tips for keeping skin protected during the Winter months! And skin that stays moisturized throughout Winter is skin that starts Spring in a healthier position!
- Keep hot showers short. The hot water can be very drying to the skin, so I like to minimize those super hot showers!
- Regularly do at-home manicures and make sure my cuticles are moisturized with a cuticle oil. I also apply cotton gloves for a mini spa session overnight.
- Apply sunscreen when spending time outdoors. Even though it may be cloudy, I always apply sunscreen to my face, neck and hands to keep them protected from the sun’s rays! It’s important, even during the Winter.
- Another way I like to keep my skin looking & feeling hydrated is by using a humidifier indoors. The cold Winter air can be so drying to the skin, so using a humidifier is a great way to make the air more moist.
I keep my Fizzy Bath Bombs in a glass container next to my Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizers! This moisturizer is a fabulous addition to my Winter skin care routine. I really love how this moisturizer instantly locks in moisture on wet skin!
