Spring is here – time to start sloughing off that winter skin so you’ll look great with bare legs and sandaled feet, and get that natural, summer glow. Using a good shielding lotion will help keep your skin hydrated and protect it from chemicals, but some of the natural dry skin care cleansing and masque ingredients from cultures known for their beautiful skin will also help attain that cosmetic-free healthy look of summer.
Some of the best skin care products from other countries come from their indigenous resources.
All of these ingredients are good for dry skin. However, no matter which you choose, you also have to ensure you protect your skin from damage caused by household and environmental chemicals. Your best option for that is a shielding lotion. A good shielding lotion forms a protective layer on the skin that keeps out chemicals while still allowing the skin to breathe. As environmental toxins and pollutants are major sources of skin damage, the effectiveness of all dry skin care efforts will be reduced if you don’t also protect against chemicals.
Try creating your own cleansing and masque products with coconut or emu oil, mashed pumpkin, pumpkin oil, and goji berries – you may be pleasantly surprised to see what they can do. When used with a good shielding lotion to help with dry skin treatment and prevention and protect your skin from harsh and toxic chemicals, these natural skin care ingredients may be all you need to get the fresh, healthy, summer skin you’ve been looking for.
