You never realize how something as simple as a good face wash, your toothbrush or even your favorite pair of slippers can make a hospital stay that much more tolerable… and maybe even help to speed up your recovery.
When my husband was hospitalized, I shut down my home office and went to be by his side.
I can’t remember exactly what I was doing before leaving the house that day, but I grabbed an overnight bag, filled it with most of his essentials and (thankfully) remembered a few things for myself… the important things, like deodorant and a few changes of clothes and underwear.
By the third night in the hospital, I looked at my face in the mirror and realized that I needed to have an intervention.
My skin was having a mini meltdown.
At this point, we fully knew that we were in for a longer stay than we initially expected and that meant that I would be going home for more supplies….
One of the first things I did during our time in the hospital was to go back home to grab some of our toiletries and creature comforts with the hopes of making the extended hospital stay a little more tolerable for the both of us.
This oil was one of the items that later made its way to the hospital. Eventually, becoming part of my daily facial routine.
It is vegan, cruelty free, and can be used before or after your favorite moisturizer or facial serum.
It has a neutral scent and works well for any gender.
