The Ultimate Dry Skin Guide
It’s 2021, and our skin is dry. If changes in your behaviour over the past year have thrown your skin completely off-kilter, we more than hear you. All the extra handwashing on top of the usual winter wind is taking its toll. Both outdoor and indoor humidity is much lower in the winter months, meaning the outer layer of your skin (aka the epidermis) has less access to moisture. This often leaves you with dry, irritated, or flaky skin. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with moisturizers that will take you from winter to summer.
Here are 9 moisturizers for every budget and every skin type.
Nature’s Healer Lavender Body Lotion $49.95
In the winter, Vitamin E and Coconut Oil renew and calm dry and irritated skin. In the summer, Hemp Oil and Organic Aloe Vera help to alleviate inflammation caused by sun exposure and heat. All year-round, the Lavender scent is calming and we could all use a little of that!
Nature’s Healer Brightening Face Cream $89.95
A combination of hydrating and nourishing ingredients come together to make this antioxidant brightening moisturizer a standout. Anti-pigmentation ingredients like Licorice Root Extract, and fatty-acid rich skin healing ingredients like Avocado Oil add an extra boost.
