Is the harsh winter weather wreaking havoc on your skin? Central air and heating drying you on the outside?
Here are some all-natural ways to moisturize and refresh rough, dry skin.
It’s no wonder our Avocado Lavender Salve is so popular! Great for dehydrated skin, avocados are packed with protein, essential oils and nourishing vitamins. Mash a ripe avocado into a paste and smooth over your face and body. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.
Grab that container of yogurt from your fridge and slather it on! Not only is yogurt good for you on the inside, it’s great for you on the outside. Yogurt is filled with protein and vitamins and contains lactic acid to gently exfoliate. Smooth on some plain yogurt on your face to cleanse and soften your skin. Leave on face for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.
Rich in vitamin A and potassium, bananas are a skin-saver! Mash a ripe banana into a paste. Apply all over face and leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with tepid water.
So, go ahead and play with your food. This time…you won’t get in trouble for having food on your face. And, your body will thank you!
When it comes to skin care, we like to keep it simple. Here are some basic steps for healthy, beautiful skin: cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize.
Cleanse: Use a mild, daily cleanser to dissolve pore-clogging dirt and oil. Avoid using harsh cleansers and soap that can irritate and over-dry your skin.
Exfoliate: Weekly exfoliation removes dead skin cells, reveals younger, fresher skin, and allows your skin to absorb moisture. Avoid exfoliating too often or scrubbing too hard as this can damage the skin’s surface. We find exfoliating masques better for oily, acne-prone skin.
Moisturize: Protect your skin from losing moisture. Avoid over-moisturizing as it can clog pores and, if you’re going outside…don’t forget the sunscreen!
