You're not alone. We are based out of a super cold and dry climate. So we know a trick or two for those super dry moments. First off, how do you know if you have dry skin? Dry skin can be characterized by peeling, dehydration, and/or cracking. Experienced year around or from time to time, we have the perfect quick tips to help give skin an extra moisture boost.
Coconut Water 🥥
Coconut Water is packed with Vitamins C, A, K, and B-Complex that help nurture your skins collagen. Dryness can lead to low levels of collagen production, which leads to aging. Rich in antioxidants, ant-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, that help fight breakouts by reducing excess skin oils. High levels of potassium found in this tropical water deliver natural hydration and help to balance electrolyte levels.
How to use: Grab some pure 100% coconut water (the one's packed with artificial sugars + flavors can irritate skin) and pour into clean spray bottle & mist onto skin day + night after cleansing and before moisturizing. Can also use cotton ball to apply. Think of this as your new toner. Apply 3-5 times a week.
We're sure you have this lying around somewhere which makes it so easy to throw an oat mask together! Great for all skin types especially dry + sensitive, as its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties help to treat dry skin and remove dead skin cells. This super grain can also soak up the excess oil on your skin and help treat acne. Compounds found in oats called Saponins, are natural cleansers. They remove the dirt and oil that clog the pores and exfoliate the skin.
How to use: Mix one tablespoon of old-fashioned oats (or oat flour) with 2 tablespoons of unfiltered honey. Apply to area of skin for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water to lock in moisture properties. Follow up with toner and moisturizer. Apply 2 times a week.
Yes, of course we're going to tell you to drink more water. Not only is your body made up of 60% water, but your skin is your largest organ. Bottom line, you need water. But another great way to use water to your skin's advantage is though steam. Steamers are great, but all you truly need is a sink + towel for this super easy at-home (or on-the-go) DIY steamer.
How to use: Fill a sink halfway with steaming hot water. For added benefits drop some detoxifying essential oils into the water. Some of our personal favorites are Peppermint Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Clove Essential Oil, etc. 10-12 drops. Rest head right above water over sink (we recommend closing eyes especially if using essential oils). Place towel behind head + cover sink. Steam face for 5-15 minutes. This can be done as many times a week as possible and at any step of your skincare regimen.
