Skin Care

Postby RedRaider » Fri Oct 19, 2012 6:15 am

is it ok to use conditioner and just aplly it and let it sit on them. I try to wash them once a week so i was thinking of letting it sit a week at a time. Would this work or is there another method that works better.

Skin Care

Postby mtbkmom » Fri Oct 19, 2012 7:06 am

We rub in mineral oil the night before their weekly bath, take a stiff brush and brush them up just before the bath (loosens up the dead cells--treat them just like your momma treated craddle cap on babies), and then wash with the mane n' tail shampoo, follow with the mane n tail conditioner and do a light rinse. Daily we have a bottle--3/4's water to 1/4 mane n tail conditioner and brush them, spray, and then brush in the spray-----what this does is conditions the skins and helps to exfoliate the dead cells so those dark pigs do not have that "dusty" look.

Rubbing an mineral oil is good one,but stiff brush is not good for their skin.

We use a stiff bursh before the bath to exfoliate the dead cells so they come off with the wash that follows....just like how our mommas used to take care of a baby with "craddle cap"....you don't scrub the dickens out of them, but you loosen up the dead,flaky cells and then they wash off and then you have fresh skin exposed and the flaky stuff is gone. We have done this for a million kazillion years and it works. It works real good with dark pigs because it get rid of the "ashen" appearance real quick. You don't do this everyday. Just once a week. It works.

Try a buff puff- like we use in the shower- only use it on dry skin- then moisturize---it's not as ruff and doesn't hurt the skin--mrs piggie

Yeo--that's what we use--the rice blend brush...it is a little more than the softer brush used for the show rings and daily, general brushing. This brush works just specifically for the treatment with mineral oil to loosen up and get rid of dry, flaky skin .

Always trim their hair then use any type of brush to scrub. This will remove the dead skin and maintain the hygiene also.
