Do you suffer from chronic dry skin? Most people try to soothe dry and cracked skin by using creams and lotions; however, many of these products contain chemicals that can be potentially harmful to the body.
The skin is an organ of elimination; so many skin disorders and diseases are a result of the elimination of toxins through the skin. This can cause irritation and inflammation of the skin. Eating an unhealthy diet and using excessive amounts of chemical containing products on our bodies can aggravate dry skin symptoms.
Here are some tips for treating dry skin naturally:
- Fresh Air: Dry skin is partly caused by being stuck in closed facilities all the time. To resolve this, the moment you’re free, try going outside to breathe in fresh air even if it’s for a short period of time.
- The Best Natural Lotion: Since ancient Egyptian times, Queen Cleopatra was known for her beauty. The secret tokeeping her skin beautiful and healthy was by taking milk baths with rose essential oils and honey. The same is true even
now! Wash your hands regularly in this mixture using organic whole milk, raw unpasteurized honey, and rose essential oil to moisturize and revitalize your skin.
- Clean Water: Another reason that our skin dries up is because of the tap water we use. Tap water contains a lot of chlorine and fluorine which can really dry out our skin when we use it regularly to wash ourselves. Try filling a bucket or pitcher of tap water and let it sit for 24 hours. By then most of the chemicals will have evaporated and will be much cleaner and easier to use on your hands and face.
- Beeswax: Beeswax can really moisturize and soften dried out skin! It contains Vitamin A and effectively locks in moisture while still allowing your skin to breathe. Take some beeswax (make sure not to buy the artificial kind!), melt it so that it’s soft, put it on your hands, and then allow it to dry. Once you rub the wax off, which should come off easily, it will leave your skin feeling refreshed!
