Moisture Miracle

My skin gets chapped, chaffed and dry during the cold months, so I am always on the lookout for a good skin moisturizer. I was using an anti-aging formula that was supposed to decrease cellulite and tighten the skin. But, after a few weeks of using the stuff I hadn’t noticed any visible results, and the product seemed to make my skin even drier than it was before. I needed a quick fix.

While shopping at my local health food store I noticed that many of the skin products contained grape-seed oil. I decided I would give it a try. I bought some grape-seed oil lotion and applied some after my nightly shower. My skin felt so soft and smooth, and the lotion had a clean fresh scent. The next morning my skin was still hydrated and supple. My husband even commented on how soft my hands were!


Shea Butter

Shea butter is a yellowish or ivory colored natural fat that comes from the seed of the African shea tree. Extracting shea butter from the seed is a social activity for African women elders and young girls who crush and boil the seeds by hand.  Shea butter is used in Africa for cooking oil, as a waterproofing wax, for hairdressing, for candle-making, and also as an ingredient of medicinal ointments.

The main industrial use of shea butter outside Africa is in cosmetics, such as moisturizer creams and emulsions, and in hair conditioners for dry and brittle hair. This versatile cream can be used to correct many skin conditions which we’ll discuss in a later post.


Natural Moisturizers Keep My Youthful Glow Alive

I love to keep my skin looking as smooth and soft as possible. I love it when my skin has a natural and beautiful glow to it and I want my skin to look youthful and healthy for as long as possible. Using the right skin care products like a good moisturizer helps me to ensure that my skin stays looking its best and that I can feel confident every day.

I used to really struggle with dry and cracked skin and it really made me feel insecure. People would sometimes comment on my skin when it got so dry that it cracked. I would get little cuts all over my hands in the wintertime because of how dry my skin got and I never seemed to be able to find a product that kept that dryness away.

Now that I have discovered the power of natural moisturizers, I no longer have to worry about having dry skin or skin that is dull. I love what these moisturizers have done for my skin and my natural beauty. I no longer feel tightness from dry skin on my face or have to worry about peeling skin and the aged look that dry skin gives you.


Natural Skin Care for Winter III

No matter how thoroughly you moisturize them, the skin on your hands is going to dry out, but you can reduce the risk of cracks and bleeding by applying a strong hand cream at least three times daily. Try to avoid harsh soaps and excessively hot water when washing your hands, and re-apply hand cream after every cleaning.

Essential oils can also help to keep your hands looking their best. You can simply blend the essential oils for your specific problem into your hand cream.

  • Antiseptic Oils: rosemary, lemon, eucalyptus, lavender, lime
  • Oils for Dry Hands: rose, geranium, sandalwood, patchouli, carrot
  • Oils for Neglected Hands: rose, lemon, geranium, patchouli

Cooler temperatures will always make effective skincare more difficult. However, with natural skincare, a few minor changes to your regular routine will go a long way in keeping your skin beautiful.


Natural Skin Care for Winter

For many people, the first signs of winter are a welcome reprieve from sweltering heat, but saying goodbye to those summer sweats can wreak havoc on your skin. Even a slight chill can lead to unwanted dryness but a few simple changes to your daily routine will help keep your skin radiant and healthy.

At the first sign of cold weather, look for skincare products and makeups that contain powerful moisturizers. Face creams should be working hard to protect your skin from those blustery breezes, and your makeup should be no different. Choose products that might be heavier than your regular brand, but not so heavy that they clog your pores. Look for solutions that are particularly effective on your T-zone, as this area is most prone to dryness.

Cooler temperatures always make effective skincare more difficult so make the switch to winter skincare products early. Use your winter-ready products daily to help fight the effects of winter weather and keep your skin healthy.


Good Skin Moisturizers Give Me Confidence All Year Long

I enjoy using some great lotions for my skin that help me to have confidence wearing my favorite outfits and showing off beautiful skin. I have great skin but it tends to get dry in the fall and the wintertime and it can get some redness to it as well. I can have great-looking skin, however, when I have some nice moisturizers to use for it.

Finding some awesome ways to keep my skin moisturized and looking good is something that is important to me. I have tried a lot of different lotions in the past and I finally found some that have gotten me some real results. These lotions keep my skin looking great even in the coldest winter months when it is icy and snowy outside.

My skin moisturizers give me lots of confidence and they are great for using all year long. I like that they moisturize deep so that I don’t have any dryness left over. The lotions that I was using in the past healed my cracked skin, but they still left a dry and flaky surface. I like that these new natural moisturizers are the real deal and that they give me some long-lasting results.


Moisture for Dry Hands

f112b4b91b1cd23749729161b29741b61f9f4d2c_600My friend’s husband does a lot of work with his hands; he does construction work at his job and when he’s home, he does a lot of woodworking as a hobby. Since he’s constantly working with his hands, he commented that his hands often feel dry and they look like the skin is starting to crack. They’re not nearly as smooth as someone who rarely works with their hands.

Another reason why his hands are so much rougher than they need to be is because he doesn’t use a moisturizer. I think I’m going to try to get her husband to start using moisturizer, because I don’t think it’s very good for his skin or his hands to allow them to get so dry and cracked. Some moisturizer will likely prevent problems in the future.


Enjoying A Healthy Glow With My Facial Moisturizer

I used to struggle with really dry skin and it would get annoying and even embarrassing to have to deal with it all the time. The cold and long winters in the area where I used to live didn’t help at all. My skin would get super dry in the wintertime and it would stay pretty dry in the summer and in the fall as well. It would get hard for me to keep my skin looking great.

Finding some great moisturizer for my skin has really helped me not to have that cracked and peeling embarrassing dry skin. I found one that helps my skin to stay soft and healthy and it has helped me to stay young-looking as well. I love using this lotion and it has given me some amazing results over the years.

With my facial moisturizer, I can enjoy having the kind of healthy glow that I want to have. I like to use the lotion on a regular basis so that I can feel confident and so that I can avoid any painful cracking or itchy dry skin. I love the way that my new moisturizer works and that I no longer feel like I have to hide my skin. The lotion has been a great find with mango butter, vitamin E, and other important nutrients.


Crusty Feet

June 29, 2017

I spend many hours in airports and I noticed that many men and women who wear sandals are not taking care of their feet and they have heels that are cracked and crusty. You can get rid of dry crusty feet by exfoliating with a salt or sugar scrub in the shower and then gently sloughing calluses with a pumice stone. Use the pumice stone a little at a time over a week or two and the callus will be gone or greatly reduced.

Next you should give your feet a deep moisturizing treatment with shea butter cream by coating your feet with the butter and then putting your socks on before going to bed. You can  deep moisturize as often as you like but don’t forget to moisturize your feet after each shower too. The finishing touch for feet that look good in sandals is to give yourself a pedicure and put on your favorite color nail polish if you want.


Pretty Feet

The first thing I notice about anyone wearing sandals is how their heels look now that they are exposed for all to see. Are they dry and cracked after being cooped up in socks and boots all winter? People don’t realize how those dry, cracked feet look to others! I always want to help them get soft and appealing feet that look beautiful in sandals. There are only a few steps to take for you to have pretty feet too.

First, exfoliate your feet by using a salt or sugar scrub in the shower to help remove dry and dead skin, eliminate the appearance of cracked heels, and start the healing process. If you also have calluses on your feet, gently use a pumice stone to start sloughing the callus down but do it gradually over a week or more.

The second thing is to give your feet a deep moisturizing treatment with either raw shea butter or shea butter cream by coating your feet with the butter and then putting your socks on before going to bed. You can do the deep moisturizing treatment as often as you like but don’t forget to moisturize your feet after each shower too. The finishing touch for feet that look good in sandals is to give yourself a pedicure and, if you like, put on your favorite color nail polish and enjoy the summer!
