With the onset of winter, skin dryness is common problem to be experienced by all. When skin becomes dehydrated, it loses its elasticity, and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy. Skin, therefore, needs extra care for protection against dryness. As essential beauty care regime, one should apply good herbal lotion that has safe and effective moisturizing elements. A good lotion for body and moisturizer for face should be fortified with essential oils to fight free radicals. It should help nourishing, revitalizing and soothing skin, rendering it soft, smooth and naturally healthy.
Some useful remedies to fight dry skin are :
1.The commonest problem people face with dry type skin stems from harsh soap or cleansing agents, especially deodorant soaps, and antibacterial soaps. Most of the soaps have sulfate and lye which can aggravate the problem of dry skin. Especially for washing face, use good cleansers which have adequate fatty substances or oils, like cocoa butter, as key ingredient.
2. Keep your skin adequately moisturized. A wide variety of lotions and creams are available, but we have seen better effects with the use of natural substances. The pharma-based formulations are more like fine petroleum jellies which tend to rest as a layer over the skin, whereas the natural ingredients in a good moisturizer or lotion are able to penetrate the pores and get absorbed . Dry skin becomes more acute when there is not enough water in the skin and the moisture is allowed to escape. The natural ingredients in beauty care products help skin retain its natural shape, at the same time, providing rich nourishment to the skin and keep it healthy even during winter.
4. It has been seen that hot water bath has drying effect on the skin. Hot water also washes away the natural oils that protect skin. It is, therefore, recommended that warm water should be used for bath and wash, which should, of course, be followed by adequate moisturization.
5. Extreme cold and dry wintry air causes dryness of facial skin as well as hands. One can see the visible effects when exposed to long cold exposure. Before venturing out, therefore, apply good lotion or cream against the drying effects.
In our powerful moisturizing creams, we have been using especially nourishing blend of organic herbs and oils for winter use, or for keeping dry skin adequately moisturized at all times. These formulations are very effective in erasing the effects of parched skin, and in further revitalizing, rejuvenating and replenishing skin. Infused with selected essential oils, these are excellent formulations to promote moisture balance that dramatically rehydrates skin.
Those wishing to apply powerful herbal anti-aging formulations, winter turns out to be extra taxing time, especially for combination and dry skin type. One should, therefore, use such nourishing creams and lotions generously to provide good protection to the skin day and night.
