People take daily measures to protect themselves. Coats keep us warm in the winter and washing our hands helps prevent the spread of germs.
Lotion can be the key to protecting our skin. Lotion creates a protective barrier for our skin, in addition to adding moisture.
Without lotion, we could develop more wrinkles or our wrinkles could look more apparent because our skin is dehydrated. Dry skin has a dull and flaky look and can be itchy.
This is especially true during cold weather, which is just around the corner. Humidity levels are going to start dropping, which means your skin will lose some of its moisture protecting barrier.

This week, you can even make your own lotion. On Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. visitors at Twist of Pine can make their own signature scent using essential oils. Once your scent is created, you will be able to mix it into a spray lotion, cream lotion or roller ball perfume.
This fun experience costs $19.99 (sign up here) and you will be able to take your new product home with a personalized name and packaging. We hope you and your friends can join us for fun and wine, while learning about essential oils and their benefits.
