We’ve arrived at the coldest months of the year, when the skin takes a beating. You may want to consider swapping out your store-bought soaps with the handmade kind that moisturizes the skin while also supporting a local artisan. Hannah Weeks of LaPorte is one such artisan, the founder of growing brand Hannah Jane Soaps.

“Treating your skin with love and care is always important, but especially in the dry winter months,” Weeks says. “Natural handmade soap produces glycerin, a natural humectant that moisturizes and protects your skin against winter’s harsh environment, leaving you with the most naturally moisturized skin possible.”
