Our winter has been fairly mild in the precipitation department. But a huge cold front rolled in this weekend and my skin has been insanely dry. Like itchy, scaly dry. I know that isn’t pretty but it is what it is. Plus, one of my resolutions was to fully embrace Retin-A so my face is kind of a dry mess too. So I thought I’d share my favorite dry skin remedies.
First up, the dreaded dry lips. I love Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. This fruit derived balm has been around for 100+ years and is the holy grail (IMO) to cure dry, winter lips.
Thanks to one of my favorite advances in skincare, oils are officially a thing. I recently shared some NUDE Skincare Progenius Omega Treatment Rescue Oilimage with my friend. And her ringing endorsement just confirmed how great this stuff is. It is feather-light, improves texture and really nourishes dry skin.
I like to think of Avalon Organics Hand & Body Lotion as the poor man’s Tata Harper lotion. This natural blend is so hydrating and refreshing. It replenishes and rebalances with wonderful smelling organic ingredients.
For those really stubborn spots (mine seem to be my elbows), I turn to the serious stuff. And that is none other than Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream Facial Treatment. This balm is not for the faint of heart. But I am convinced it will cure the most serious dry skin. Olive Oil, Beeswax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly and Propolis extract leaves skin unclogged and radiant. I also love it as an overnight mask on my face for those of you who share my dry skin (Retin-A) woes.
