Thank you once again for visiting Enrich and Flourish. As a result of constant emails from readers to include more beauty topics and to help them with remedies for common beauty ailments, I have decided to include more posts on beauty and lifestyle. Hence here is my post for people who are struggling with very very dry skin.
We all know the best natural moisturizer for any skin type. Water!
Trust me, if you drink lots of water, the next day you can find the difference on your skin. And yes, topical application of moisturizers help to keep skin soft and supple, yet water is the sole winner without competitors. You can also try oils like olive oil or sesame oil ( if you can stand the smell, of course!), but not coconut oil which can make your skin even more dry.
For the outgoing women who doesn't want to look all that oily, it is use a good moisturizer instead of oil.
Any moisturizer, which ever brand it may be, works better if you apply it after bath,while the skin is still wet.
By far, the best moisturizer I have used is The Body Shop Mango Body Butter.
My skin type is combination skin.It is sometimes dry and sometimes oily and this product has helped me on those dry-skin-days!Pros:
Extremely moisturizing and hydrating
Stays all day long
Smoothly glides over the skin
Does not give an oily look
Paraben is one of the ingredients :(( Read my post here, on why parabens are harmful)
Not for facial use.
In Dubai, it is priced at AED 72/- In India it is Rs.745 /- for 200 ml.
I recommend this moisturizer to everyone with dry skin. Trust me, you will say "Thank you" to me and please do let me know your comments.
Having said all these, I still repeat that no moisturizer can take the place of water. Drink lots of water and keep you skin healthy and smooth. :-)
