With six more weeks of winter, your skin is going to need extra love and attention. Cold weather is one factor that leaves your skin prone to dryness and irritation. Treat yourself to self-care to take better care of your skin — maybe consider switching to all-natural moisturizers and soaps. Here are three reasons why you should love your skin:
Reason No. 1: Glycerin soap can be synthetically derived.
It’s important to read labels, especially on the soap you use on your skin. Glycerin has moisturizing properties, but only if it’s naturally derived. Synthetically derived soaps can be drying on your skin and can cause irritation. All-natural soaps are composed of olive oil, coconut oil or sunflower oil, which all have moisturizing qualities!
Reason No. 2: Organic skincare products are gentle on your skin.
You’ve heard this before — skin is the largest organ in the body — it’s true, and it’s why you should treat it with the best care! If you get skin irritation from shaving or dry skin, try using an all-natural soap. The oatmeal body bar soap is great for your face and all-over body care, and it’s a great exfoliator.
Reason No. 3: Even physical contact with certain substances can create an allergic reaction.
Did you know that your laundry detergent could be the cause of your red and itchy skin? The chemical components such as dyes and fragrances can negatively affect your body. Using a natural laundry detergent made with 100 percent natural ingredients is gentle and removes allergens such as dust mites, mold, mildew and pet dander.
In addition to moisturizing and using natural products, hydrating is also very important. Soft skin is happy skin! Smooth, soft skin also helps avoid early wrinkling, bruising and lost of elasticity. Remember these things the next time you feel dry skin!
