How to moisturize dry, ashy skin?

The human skin is the body’s largest organ and requires regular attention to stay young, blemish-free and healthy. Applying a moisturizer every day will  encourage the body to shed cells more rapidly and then to repair itself, which allows for younger skin cells to rise to the surface.

 

Our Solution

Moisturizing everyday can reduce the chance of developing extreme dryness or oiliness. Both extremes are harmful for skin and cause common skin conditions like acne and premature aging. To restore moisture to dry skin, choose a heavier, oil-based moisturizer that contains ingredients that help keep your skin hydrated. For very dry and cracked skin, petrolatum-based products are preferable. Also, the massaging affect that is used when applying lotion helps stimulate blood circulation and new cell generation.

Shea butter is a natural oil made from compressing and boiling the fruit of the African karite tree, also called “The Tree of Life.” The oil is used for cooking in many parts of its native Africa, but is most commonly used in skin products because of its amazing moisturizing and healing properties.
