You need to deal dry skin gently using a good lotion for dry skin and natural products for skin to guard against the causes of dry skin.
The three step method I recommend concentrates on improving your skin’s moisture level, pumping out fine lines and making the skin soft and supple.
3 Steps To Great Skin – Say Goodby To Dry Skin Patches!
Step 1: Exfoliate
A body scrub should always be on your list when purchasing products for optimum skin maintenance. Using a body scrub is usually a special treat experienced in a Spa as part of a pampering session. For the treatment of dry skin and dry skin patches, give yourself a spa experience in your own home with a weekly body scrub to achieve glowing healthy skin. Natural products for skin such as Natural Origin’s Sea Salt Body Scrub not only removes dead layers of skin but will also feed your skin with the moisturising properties of almond and jojoba oils and carefully selected essential oils that together make a perfect lotion for dry skin.
As the skin is constantly renewing itself, the outer layer is effectively dead cells. It is important to remove this layer on a regular basis so that in step 2 and 3 you are acting upon the living skin. Scrub mixtures can soften, exfoliate, revitalize, tone and moisturize your dry skin patches and your entire body. You can either use the scrub dry before you get into the shower or you can use the scrub after you have already cleansed. The residue is rinsed off as the product is used. Pat your skin dry afterwards to allow any remaining protective oils to seal in the moisture. Avoid using scrubs intended for the body on your face and neck where the skin is more delicate.
Step 2: Cleanse your body using natural products for skin
Avoid shower gels containing harsh ingredients which dry out the skin and can cause irritations and dry skin patches. Always opt for natural products for skin such as vegetable and glycerin based soaps or liquid Castille soap or try Natural Origin’s Liquid African Black Soap, which in my opinion is the best lotion for dry skin. It is best because the ingredients are pure, simple and naturally loaded with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Step 3: Moisturise your body, especially dry skin patches
The skin is one of the most flexible organs and a well moisturised skin is a comfortable and strong skin. The skin will not absorb water, so conventional moisturisers, which are usually water based, form an unnatural barrier, impairing the function of the skin. Applying natural products for skin such as a fast absorbing oil containing fatty acids is the best way of conditioning the skin. Natural Origin’s Body Oil which includes Coconut and Jojoba oil is great for all skin types and a perfect lotion for dry skin. For optimum benefit, massage oil into your body while your skin is still damp.
These three step are simple but they will only work if you choose really good products such as natural products for skin that are good for all skin types and great as a lotion for dry skin and dry skin patches.
