Treat Dry Skin Naturally With These Essential Tips

‘Tis the season for dry skin.  Between heaters, hot water, and the cold wind, winter is the time for dry skin to surface, even in folks that generally have no issue with it.  To help here are a few tips we find essential around hereto help treat dry skin naturally and promote a healthy glow naturally.dry dirt like dry skin

Cleanse With Oils

One of the leading causes of dry skin any time of year is the use of certain skin care products that claim to “tighten”, “cleanse” or even “clear up” oily skin.  The truth is, our skin needs oil.  In fact, it makes it’s own protective oils and, will make MORE of these natural oils when we strip them away through the use of soaps and harsh cleansing products.

Instead, cleanse with oil based products, or even the oils themselves.  Sevani Botanica’s Ageless Radiance Refining AHA Cleanser is a great example of a wonderful oil based cleanser that works with your skin and it’s natural ability to stay hydrated on it’s own to help cure persistently dry skin and sooth conditions like Eczema and Rosacea.  We also offer products like Serum Vitale Essential Nutrient Oil that’s amazing for cleansing, moisturizing, treating patches of eczema and dry skin, and so much more.

Lukewarm Water

During the cold months in particular, many of us like to enjoy a hot shower.  Hot water is not good for the skin though as it dries it out.  Use shower head with water drippinglukewarm water instead.   It’s not quite as relaxing, but it will help keep you skin hydrated, and, it will make sure you get in and out of the shower quickly helping the environment by using less water as a result!

Use a Toner AND a Moisturizer

Using a moisturizer to help cure dry skin is a no brainer, but, many don’t know that the real trick is using a toner BEFORE your moisturizer.  Applying a natural toner that contains humectants after you cleanse and before you moisturize helps prepare your skin to receive all the benefits of the moisturizer thereby enhancing the effects of all the beneficial, hydrating ingredients contained in both products.

Use Nature’s Pharmacy not Chemicals

Attempting to address chronically dry skin with chemically based products is a losing battle.  Ingredients like surfactants commonly found in gel cleansers for example can actually even CAUSE dry skin along with accelerated aging.  Instead, look to mother nature.  Her medicine cabinet is full of natural ways to help sooth and protect skin to help keep it moisturized and hydrated.  Some ingredients to look for include:

  • Organic Argan Oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Licorice Root
  • Neem Seed Oil
  • Hyaluronic Acid

These ingredients will help cure your dry skin, not mask it, or exacerbate it further.   You can find these and a variety of other types of nsevani botanica serum vitale essential nutrient oilatural ingredients in formulations designed for hydrating and renewing dry and even sensitive skin in Sevani non toxic beauty products.
