Try: Maxasorb Melatonin Cream {sleep support}

Are you a restful sleeper? Have you tried a sleep aid before? If you struggle with getting your ZZ's in, you may want to try out a product like this Maxasorb Melatonin Cream. So what is this stuff all about?

Melatonin is the hormone that controls daily day-night cycles of sleep. Some sleep disorders, such as insomnia and Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome (DSPS), are attributed to low melatonin levels. Travelers suffering from jet lag and swing shift workers may also benefit from supplemented melatonin. As we age our bodies do not make sufficient melatonin. Sleep enhancement is possible in healthy people as well with additional melatonin that may:

* Decrease the time needed to fall asleep;

* Increase sleepiness;

* Increase sleep duration.

Each measured dose of Maxasorb Melatonin lotion from an airless dispenser delivers 3 milligrams of melatonin with a full press of the pump. Just before bedtime, rub the easily absorbed, odorless lotion on your arms or legs. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin.

After receiving this product, I gave it to my step-mom to try out because I knew she'd be the perfect person to try this out! She works nights at a hospital and struggles falling asleep in the morning when she gets off of her shift. She has tried it all! This cream has helped her get in an extra 2 hours of sleep each morning. She's been loving that something finally works for her! She applies it to her arm and has been slowly noticing that her sleep patterns are improving.

If you struggle with insomnia or irregular sleeping patterns, I'd love to hear what works for you!

Happy day,

A child's woe & detergent for sensitive skin

As a parent, one of the most important things in life is your child. When I realized that my son also was blessed with my sensitive skin I felt terrible. So the one thing that I could do for him was to try and figure out what was causing his eczema and how to deal with it in each aspect. I never imagined that it would be such a chore for both of us.

Thankfully, when it came to our laundry routine I purchased a large size of All Free Clear that would keep us stocked for a good while. I purchased this because all free clear is the #1 recommended detergent brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for sensitive skin. It's tough on stains yet gentle enough for the whole family. Plus, it's safe for use in standard and HE machines. It rinses clean and has a gentle, hypoallergenic formula. Powerful Clean. Gentle on Skin. It was also available at my nearest big bulk store and I purchased the mighty pacs from my local Walgreen's.

A few selling points that made me even more comfortable with the All Free Clear was that the detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets received the National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™. Products with the NEA Seal of Acceptance™ are those that avoid certain chemicals, dyes, perfumes and residues that are known to be unsuitable for use by persons with eczema or a sensitive skin condition.  The other thing that was wonderful is that all free clear has only 9 ingredients! That's less than almost all detergents on the market.

With me not having to think about my laundry routine by just dropping a little mighty pac into the wash machine, I can have more time to myself to read my latest magazine or catch up on my endless e-mails. I am thankful for this great product that is so widely available! Thank you to all free clear for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try all free clear!

With my laundry routine squared away, now I just have to make sure my boy isn't eating dairy products and is limited on his sugar in take. As my son would say, "easy, peasy, lemon squeezey."

Does your child or someone in your life have sensitive skin? I'd love to know what you do to take extra precautions!

best, rachel
