Natural Dry Skin Remedy

Natural Dry Skin Remedy - Improving Dry Skin Without Expensive Solutions

Dry skin is something that just about anyone deals with at least at some point in their lives, and often when someone is experiencing this (especially in severe cases) the first "solution" is to run to the local drugstore or department store to find a product that will ease the problem.

However, dry skin does not need to be dealt with this way - it is not always necessary to spend a lot of money on skin - and in fact, it can be better not to!

So - what might be some natural dry skin remedies that will help?

1.  Using an all natural skin cream (that doesn't contain drying agents):  There is one cream that I recommend in particular, Seraj All Natural and Organic Skin Cream.  This is definitely an effective and simple method of treating dry skin - and the cost is not very high especially in comparison with other products - plus it lasts for quite a long time since it is concentrated, and you can order a free sample to give it a try.

2.  Natural Dry Skin Recipes:  There are a few different methods that someone can use to handle dry skin, right from their own kitchen!  This is a solution that will work for those women who are ready and willing to put in the time and the attention to learning about the natural properties of various foods and oils - as well as willing to put the time into refrigeration, making fresh batches of skin remedies, etc.  (I personally opt to leave it to those who are already educated in this field and find a natural cream for skin that works well.)

3.  Watch how you are cleansing your skin:  Using harsh detergents or warm or hot water on face can dry it out - using lukewarm or cool water is much less drying.

The above list contains but a few solutions - but if you are short of time (and who isn't these days) and are simply looking for a natural dry skin remedy in the form of a simple product, Seraj All Natural is definitely a good bet.

Natural Skin Beauty Tips

Tips for Naturally Beautiful Skin

I don't know of any woman that doesn't long for healthy, beautiful skin (if she doesn't already have it)!  And - I strongly advocate any methods that involve all natural skin care.

Here are a few natural skin beauty tips for those ladies out there who are also looking for natural methods of treating skin - these are actions to take that will not only improve the condition of skin, but some of them will also prevent premature aging.

1.  Use all natural beauty (makeup) products - Even products on the market that are quite popular may have long-term effects that are not as popular!  Oftentimes products that may produce more immediate results have preservatives or other ingredients in them that can produce negative effects for skin - or worse, they can present long-term health risks.  General rule of thumb:  If you can easily read and understand (or easily look up to find out) the ingredients on the label, it is probably okay.

2.  Using natural skin care - There are quite a few natural skin care products available today, some of them work better than others, and some of the them are not as "natural" as they claim!  There are a couple of ways to go for using natural products for skin - the "do it yourself" method, or simply finding a product that is truly pure and all natural that works well.  If one feels that they have the time, there are some great natural skin care recipes that can work quite well - however if you're like me you might be thinking, "Geez, who has the time for that?!"  If that is the case, choosing a natural skin cream for a moisturizer is the way to go - My favorite skin cream is Seraj All Natural Beauty Cream.

3.  Diet - Yes, it is indeed important to eat healthy foods - and even better to ensure that the foods one eats are organic.  In general, avoiding overly fatty foods and foods with processed sugar can make a huge difference in itself.  If one has a diet with whole grains and fruits (for carbohydrate intake), eats lean protein such as fish and non-dark versions of meat (or other healthy protein foods) and has an adequate vegetable intake, that person would likely notice a huge difference in the tone of her skin over time.  (As a note, foods that are not organically grown or raised generally have ingredients that can add toxins to the body - as an eventual result, this can show up in the texture and tone of skin.)

4.  Exercise - Healthy (not overdone) aerobic exercise improves circulation and the general health of the body when done regularly.  And - yes, it also adds a lovely healthy glow to skin.

5.  Water intake - Drinking enough water each day has a cleansing effect on the body, removing toxins and naturally keeping the body hydrated.  On the "opposite side of the coin", not drinking enough water can tend to cause the body to store more toxins and dehydrate the body.  In terms of skin, this shows up in dry looking skin and (ugh) more wrinkles.

6.  About drinking caffeine products - Coffee and tea dehydrate the body - sad but true.  I love Starbucks just as much as the next guy (or gal) - but nevertheless it's a good idea to take it easy on the coffee and caffeinated tea.  (See drinking water, #5 above.)

7.  Cleansing - It is not a good idea to use a detergent soap to cleanse skin - even if skin tends to be oily.  Using a natural cleanser of some kind is the best way to go -- I have consistently heard that fresh milk makes an excellent cleanser for skin, using with a cotton pad and cleansing gently in a circular motion. 

There are more natural skin beauty tips that one could follow, but if you can fall in line with the above list, you will likely notice a dramatic difference in the general looks of your skin.

Natural Sensitive Skin Solutions

Natural Sensitive Skin products and solutions can be a bit of a tricky area to deal with, especially for those with skin that is highly sensitive or reactive to various products.

In fact, I have heard plenty of stories of ladies who search and search in vain for a product that will not only not create a reaction but will help to have a positive effect in terms of skin tone and texture.  (This includes products that say "for sensitive skin" on the label.)

About Natural Products for Sensitive Skin: 

If you have looked around on this blog, you may have noticed that one of my highest recommendations for skin products is Seraj All Natural.  One of the main reasons for this is the results it gives for those who will often otherwise have skin reactions from sometimes even very expensive "sensitive skin" products.  Not only that, but it actually soothes and clears up skin that already has had an allergic or other type of reaction to some cream, soap, etc.

Here is part of a testimonial from a couple who was having difficulty handling eczema for their son, and other products were actually worsening the problem:
I hear other stories similar to this one for this specific natural sensitive skin product - even though the label doesn't even mention that it is for sensitive skin, the fact that the ingredients are so pure, natural and effective rather tell the story.

Other Info on Natural Sensitive Skin Solutions:

I have come across some recipes for home made solutions for sensitive skin.  In my viewpoint, these are worth giving a try certainly, but often creating the home made solutions also involves quite a short shelf life, added time and effort - as well as the expense and time of running about getting the ingredients.

However, I still think it's a worthwhile idea if other solutions have not worked.  Here is a link to such a page with sensitive skin remedies if you would like to check it out.

Costs for Natural Sensitive Skin Products:

Products found in department stores or health food/cosmetics stores can often be quite pricey.  Also - if one does decide to go the "make your own" route, the costs of the ingredients, gas and time spent may not make the "saved cost" worthwhile.

This is actually another reason that I recommend the Seraj Natural Product for Sensitive Skin - Compared to other products I think you will agree that it doesn't cost much, and I know from experience that it lasts a long time since not much is needed to do the job.  For the Seraj Citrus cream, 2 oz. costs $15, 4 oz. is $20.  This is definitely worth the money - at least in my book!  =)
