If you haven’t struggled with dry skin this winter season, consider yourself lucky. If you’re like me and so many people I know, you’ve been feeling parched lately.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, parched is defined as, “very dry, especially because of hot weather and no rain.” Insert laugh. The Merriam-Webster dictionary described Southern California’s winter to a tee.
I can’t do anything about the heat, but I can help you get your skin hydrated! These two moisturizers have been lifesavers and I can’t imagine making it through the season without them: Weleda Skin Food and Na-Pca hydrating spray. Another awesome moisturizer to try is CV’s Skinlabs Restorative Skin Balm, which I just discovered thanks to Goddess Huntress.
Three skin goodies that are on my “must try” list include, RMS Raw Coconut Cream, RMS Beauty Oil, and Honest Co.’s Healing Balm. As an eczema sufferer, I’m especially excited to try Honest Co.’s Healing Balm, which is safe to use on eczema patches.
Almost as important as what moisturizer you’re using, is when you’re using it. Make sure you apply your moisturizer within two minutes of leaving the bath or shower. Your skin is still porous after exiting a bath or shower and products absorb better.
I’ve got one more (hydrating) trick up my sleeve…drink plenty of water! Water not only hydrates, it also helps rid the skin of nasty toxins.
If you have tried any of the products on my “must try” list, I would love to hear your feedback! You can contact me anytime of the day or night by submitting a contact form.
