Connecting touches with my children make up some of the most memorable moments of parenthood for me. But having “dish pan hands” – dry, rough, or scratchy skin can put a damper on those special times. NIVEA lotion is helping people experience NIVEA Million Moments of Touch through a NIVEA Sam’s Club value double pack of lotion that will help keep skin soft so you can care for your family’s emotional hearts.
I remember as a child asking my mother to rub my back while going to sleep and the skin on her hands was so rough. I couldn’t understand how her skin could be so scratchy. Now I’m a mother and I spend a lot of time with my hands in soapy water – doing dishes, bathing children, washing floors all require me to expose my skin to the harshness of soap. I try very hard to not have “dish pan hands” and keep the skin on my hands soft to the touch because as a mother and a wife, I spend a lot of time touching other people. Mostly I use lotion to keep my hands soft, but between our dry desert climate and my daily tasks, my family uses quite a bit of lotion.
The best way to keep lotion in the house for me, and to keep the cost in check, is to buy it in bulk. I found that NIVEA at Sam’s Club is a cost effective way to keep my family’s skin soft. I have my kids trained to put on lotion after each bath or shower and after washing their hands so that their skin doesn’t get too dry. If I’m not watching the kids sometimes are a little too generous with the lotion so having a big bottle of lotion around makes for less frequent lotion purchasing.
Touching is such an important part of our lives and our emotional health. My favorite part of the day is sitting on the couch with my son on my lap, reading a book. He often touches my face as I read to him – something he’s done since he was a baby. I don’t want my touch to be rough or uncomfortable for him. We also hold hands when we pray together as a family at our family meals as way to connect and spend a moment as a family in thankfulness for all the blessings we have. NIVEA lotion helps us keep our skin soft so we can keep our hearts tender and connect with each other through touch.
