Do you suffer from Dry Skin such as, Scaling, Itching or Cracking?
Dry skin is an uncomfortable condition that is sometimes accompanied by scaling, itching or cracking. If left untreated, dry skin can get worse, so its imperative to take the right steps in order to address the problem sooner, rather than later.
Dryness of the skin occurs for a variety of reasons, you might have naturally dry skin, or have occasional contact dermatitis. If you have older skin though, it may tend to be more dry and in cold weather, it might get irritated. However, the key to resilient skin is in understanding what kind of support your particular skin type needs in order to overcome whatever issues you may be having with your skin.
It’s important to use a gentle cleanser to keep your body and face free from dirt and bacteria. Use one that works for your skin type, not just whatever bar or body wash you happen to have in the cupboard. For dry skin, choose a mild liquid soap, one without alcohol or added chemical fragrance. Add 3 to 5 drops of Mayan's Secret organic Lavender essential oil to tone and repair the effects of daily environmental exposure.
However, for mixed skin types, with a complexion that is occasionally dry, add 3 to 5 drops of Mayan's Secret rose essential oil. All ways clean your face gently, taking care not to scrub too hard to avoid irritation and stress. Its best not to use hot water to rinse, but warm water. Because if you splash your face and the water is too hot, it will most likely remove the natural oils, that your skin needs in order to stay hydrated and moist through out the day or night, depending on your routine.
A good quality moisturizing lotion should be used every time you wash. Similar to cleansers, it’s important to fine-tune the moisturizer to your skin type. Oily skin can benefit from a natural, common carrier oil, such as Mayan's Secret rosehip, to dilute essential oils like Mayan's Secret frankincense and add benefits for long-term skin health. Skin that borders on dry could benefit from a lighter lotion base with 3 - 5 drops of Mayan's Secret certified organic tea tree and Mayan's Secret lavender essential oils. Moisturizing prevents your skin from drying out and leaves it hydrated and smooth. Your lotion will work best if you apply it to skin that is slightly damp, just after washing.
A good facial toner is usually applied after washing at the end of the day and it can be highly effective for smoothing, softening, and calming some of the most irritated types of skin. Cosmetic toners often contain ingredients that aggravate sensitive certain skin types, but you can use a natural toner such as Mayan's Secret Rose Facial Toner blended with your favorite Mayan's Secret essential oils.
You know, Mayan's Secret essential oils in skincare can replenish and restore nutrients,while diminishing the appearance of redness and dryness in your skin.
