Dry skin? Listen here, we’ve all been there! We all know how uncomfortable it can be. So what’s going on underneath the surface that causes skin to become dry? Our skin is the outer protective layer of our body. It is our largest organ. Skin is something to be protected and treated with care. What you put on your skin, you put in your body. So why lather up with products that you would never imagine ingesting? Something you should know about your skin is that oil production is a very important thing. Often we hear about these “oil-free” products, and its time to put our foot down. Oil is NOT a bad thing! Instead of going on an oil strike, you should be trying to find the right oils and ingredients for your skin.
What ingredients can help dry skin?
We can start by recommending that for body moisturizers, you stay away from those that contain water as an ingredient, and start using more oil-based creams. Water can actually strip the natural oils from your skin, causing your skin to lose moisture. If you do use creams with water in them, face cream for example (most don’t like the oily feel of oil-based face creams), make sure it has other beneficial ingredients. What you should be looking for is products with natural oils and butters. Look for ingredients that serve as humectants such as honey, beeswax, glycerin, and aloe vera! Humectants effectively trap moisture beneath the skins surface, keeping it hydrated. In addition to humectants, look for natural butters and oils. Now, we could list all of these but it would be a mile long, so we’ll just list a few of our favorites such as shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil (in combination with other moisturizing ingredients), almond oil, rice bran oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oil. Natural oils and butters contain various vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and many other beneficial properties that can heal all layers of skin and leave skin feeling healthy!
