For those of you who are of the Jewish faith, this starts our New Year with Rosh Hashanah followed by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This is one of my favorite times of the year. I reflect on my life from the past year and look forward to making a difference in the coming year. I feel very lucky to have both my parents, who are well into their mid and late 90’s, along with my children and grandchildren. We all celebrate together by breaking our 24 hour fast. I look around and truly feel blessed.
This morning, as always, I walked my adorable little dog Maxie, and noticed that the trees are now changing color. The days are shorter and the mornings are much cooler. With this change in weather comes a change in our skin. Less humidity makes my skin a little dry and itchy. The last thing I want to do is aggravate that by using soaps that contain high levels of Surfactant.
