Saturday Short Subjects: Aveeno…

…to the Rescue

Dang! You just scuffed the toe of your dress shoes. You are on the road, minutes away from an important commitment, and the shoe polish did not make it into your traveling bag. You do, however, have a tube of Aveeno.

You, my friend, are in luck. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with Natural Colloidal Oatmeal is an excellent remedy for dry, itchy skin. It also works wonders on mildly scuffed shoe leather. Just put a little on your fingertip and rub it gently into the roughed-up spot. The blemish will soon disappear.

GoodGuide gives this product a high rating – a 10 for Health – stating that it contains no ingredients that raise any health concerns. Aveeno is made by Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products Company. The Environmental Working Group issued a press release on August 15, congratulating Johnson & Johnson on its announcement of a groundbreaking new initiative to reformulate many of its personal care products, including baby shampoo, to remove chemicals of concern to consumers. 

All the more reason to give this tip a try. 

Have a great weekend.

Why Saturday Short Subjects? Some readers may recall  being dropped at the movie theater for the Saturday matinee — two action-packed feature films with a series of short subjects (cartoons or short movies, sometimes a serial cliffhanger) sandwiched in between. Often the short subjects were the most memorable, and enjoyable, part of the morning. That explains the name. The reason behind these particular posts is that we are all short on time. My Short Subject posts should not take me as long to write or you as long to read (or try).
