Say Goodbye to Dry Skin Problems for Good!

Guest Blog By Megan Thompson- Natural Beauty Expert

Nobody likes having dry skin. But after the winter months, it’s a problem most folks face: there’s nothing that sucks the life out of smooth healthy skin quite like cold dry winter air. One of the most effective (not to mention cheapest) ways of treating dry skin is by using natural ingredients. That’s why we’ve rounded up the top natural ingredients that will get your skin glowing again. Check them out!

The Best Natural Products for Treating Dry Skin

Number One – Olive Oil

Olive oil is a natural ingredient with many amazing beauty uses, and because it’s rich in antioxidants it is super effective at soothing and conditioning dry skin. To take advantage of its natural lubricant properties, mix olive oil with some brown sugar and raw honey and then use it as an exfoliant, or apply a thin layer of olive oil underneath your regular daily moisturiser to help boost your skin’s hydration levels throughout the day.

Number Two – Milk

You’ve probably heard that the beautiful Cleopatra supposedly bathed in milk to keep her skin soft and smooth. Take a cue from her beauty routine and start considering what milk can do for your skin! Milk may help soothe inflammation and promote smooth skin. The other reason milk is amazing is because it contains lactic acid, which may help get rid of dead skin cells and could also help restore and protect your skin’s moisture barrier. All you need to do is soak a washcloth in some whole milk and then apply the cloth to your skin for a few minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.

Number Three – Honey

Since honey is well-known for its antioxidant, antimicrobial, and humectant properties, it comes as no surprise that it’s one of nature’s best moisturizers. Honey may help soothe dry skin, and it also creates a barrier which locks in moisture, helping your skin stay hydrated throughout the day. Try rubbing some raw honey on your skin 10 minutes prior to your daily shower, or check out this Moisturizing Vitamin Manuka Honey Mask.

Number Four – Yoghurt

Plain yoghurt has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it an excellent choice for treating dry and flaky skin. Yoghurt also contains lactic acid, which can clear away the surface bacteria that could be worsening your problem. To use this ingredient as a moisturiser, apply some natural yoghurt to your skin and allow it to work for up to 10 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water, or try making this Honey Yogurt Berry Radiance Mask.
