Natural Beauty DIY Recipe | Vegan Deep Moisturizing Treatment for Dry Skin

dry desert sandWhether your dry or lackluster skin is the result of summer fun in the sun, the skin transitions that come with the changing seasons, winter’s dry air, or any other reason it’s important to do everything you can to get it hydrated again.  A healthy diet rich in fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) can help create beautiful, supple skin from the inside out.  Also, choose natural beauty products that focus on gentle, non toxic ingredients that won’t contribute to dry skin; unlike many of the commercial formulations available today.

You can also show your skin some love by indulging in a moisturizing treatment at least weekly.  Nothing pricey.  In fact, below, we’ve posted one of our favorite Vegan DIY recipes that’s filled with totally natural ingredients you’ll find in your home or at the grocery store.  Just mix up a fresh batch for each use and apply as needed to any area that needs some special attention (well, maybe not exactly everywhere!!).  Your skin will be nourished with a deep, moisturizing treatment that will give it a hydrated and healthy glow even when things get rough.
