5 Tips for Dry Skin

Dry skin causes our skin to become tight, itchy, and red. People with severely dry skin can develop fine lines and wrinkles prematurely. If you have dry skin and you’re trying to find quick and easy remedies to prevent dryness, here are a few remedies you need to try:

1. Moisturize Your Skin
Use an oil-based moisturizer, not a water-based one. Oil-based moisturizers form a protective layer on your skin to keep the moisturizer in and do not clog your pores. Some oil-based moisturizers to use include avocado oil, mineral oil, and primrose oil. You can also use moisturizers made using the ingredient alpha-hydroxy acids, sorbitol, and glycerin.


2. Do Not Forget Sunscreen
Regardless of what season it is — summer or winter — you need to apply sunscreen on your skin. Apply sunscreen on your face and any other exposed area of your body half an hour before going outside.

3. Apply Facial Masks
If you have dry skin, do not use dry peels and masks such as clay masks, as they will make your skin even drier. Also, avoid using alcohol-based toners and astringents. For dry skin, you should use hydrating masks, as they will retain the moisturizer in your skin. Try our Cocoa Mask to kick dry skin. Made with Certified Organic Cacao Powder contains vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, vitamin C, and omega-6 fatty acids that increase blood flow and promote cellular healing, this in turn keeps your skin looking healthy and adds to a youthful appearance. 

4. Remember to Exfoliate Your Skin
Make a habit of exfoliating your skin at least two times each week. For people with sensitive skin, scrub once weekly. You need to use products that suit your skin and are made from quality and natural ingredients. CHECK OUT OUR TOP BODY SCRUBS

5. Use a Lip Scrub
Along with your skin, your lips may become dry and chapped too. You can exfoliate and nourish your lips using a natural lip scrub. When you are not scrubbing your lips, you need to apply lip balm after every two hours. SHOP LIP SCRUBS
