Having dry skin is so annoying and while it’s not the worst skin condition, it’s definitely an inconvenience. But there are things you can do when preventing dry skin. I’ve always had dry skin and realized early on that any old moisturizer just won’t do but finding an effective paraben-free moisturizer posed a challenge. After trying dozens of store-bought and homemade lotions, I only know of two that work on my skin. As for oils, it can be difficult to find one that doesn’t leave me extra greasy 🙁
One thing I’ve learned in adopting a natural lifestyle is to replace chemical-filled products might take a combination of natural products. After lots of research, I came across a dry skin oil on Essential Oil Haven that really works and easily absorbs into my skin. The result is a non-greasy skin moisturizer that’s perfect right out of the shower or bath.
Each oil is great for the skin on its own which makes up the perfect combination of oils.
Hazelnut Oil (Carrier Oil) hydrates, protects, is full of nutrients and is a good fit for sensitive skin.
Sweet Almond Oil (Carrier Oil) is ideal for treating damaged skin and protects from more damage while moisturizing and preventing premature aging.
Frankincense Essential Oil strengthens skin and prevents signs of aging. It’s also great for healing wounds and stretch marks.
Geranium Essential Oil helps promote an even distribution of melanin and helps fade scars and dark spots.
Palmarosa Essential Oil is great for hydration and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance.
Lavender Essential Oil treats many skin conditions to include psoriasis, acne, wrinkles and more.
