Tips For Dry Skin

Not into dry skin? Me neither.

It’s starting to approach winter and your hands and overall body feel like the Sahara on a hot day. Not cute.

So what can you do about it?

Actually a lot!

First thing, drink up! If you’re not properly hydrated your skin won’t be either. Aim to drink at least 60 oz of water every single day.

Avoid taking steaming hot showers or baths. Opt for cold or warm water. While in the shower, be sure to exfoliate. Here’s an easy DIY scrub you can make. Also be sure to dry brush before a shower.

After your shower, be sure to blot your skin instead of scrubbing it. Apply a moisturizer (like coconut oil) immediately after the shower. Don’t wait 30 minutes.

Diffusing or using a humidifier is great while you sleep to add moisture to the air to help prevent against such dryness.

Use essential oils. Some top oils to relive dry skin are Frankincense, Geranium, Lavender, Myrrh, and Sandalwood.

Avoid washing your hands very often. Opt for lemon essential oil or even Onguard or the Onugard hand spray to keep your hands bacteria free but without drying them out. Of course, wear gloves when outside in cold weather and a scarf or hat to cover your face.
