Trust me, there’s so much plant-based skincare can do for your skin. Not to mention how much healthier choices can benefit your diet! This is crazy important when our gut is linked so closely to our skin health.
So I set out to discover some of the best natural ingredients to help with your dry skin. These ingredients are likely familiar to you and might even already be in your home! Regardless they should be easy enough to keep on hand. With this guide you should be able to pull them out whenever you need to whip up a simple DIY to nourish your skin.
Natural Ingredients Perfect for Dry Skin
Rosewater is amazing honestly. It has the most perfect pH level for our skin. This makes it the perfect choice when you have dry skin and aren’t interested in introducing any harsh cleansers that will strip your skin of the very little moisture it has left. On top of that, rose is incredibly gentle which is perfect for dry skin, which has little patience for any skincare ingredient that is only going to aggravate it more. Between it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it does wonders for dry mature skin. Just one spritz of rosewater on your face and you’ll feel transported to a relaxing day spa. 10/10 would recommend.
I’m sure you’ve heard about how great Omega-3s are for our health. One big benefit of getting your fill of Omega-3s is happy skin. So since avocado is chock full of these awesome healthy fats, they also happen to be amazing for your skin. But I’m talking so much more than avocado toast here. I’m talking avocado masks and DIYs made with avocado oil. In fact there are so many skincare solutions you can find in the kitchen. I recommend you keep some avocados around whenever you need to whip up a quick face mask (or avocado toast) to bring some of those amazing fatty acids to your dry skin.
No joke..honey is a super-powered ingredient to use for skin care. It’s naturally antibacterial which helps with itchy dry spots and full of antioxidants which helps keep you looking young. It’s also moisturizing so it’s going to nourish your dry skin and draw moisture into the surface without any of the toxic ingredients that conventional moisturizers have. That’s why people use honey in baked goods after all – it’s a pro at drawing moisture in. Plus you can add a drop or two of lavender to any honey based concoction for more anti-bacterial goodness.
Vitamins for Skin Health
I know we’ve all heard just how beneficial it is to take our daily vitamins. As I kid I honestly hated having to take those bitter chalky Flintstone vitamins (any other 90s kids remember those??). But there’s no denying how much vitamins and minerals can benefit your skin health and in turn help with your dry skin. That’s why I like to turn to mother nature and whip myself up a smoothie with all of the vitamins my skin needs using yummy fruits and veggies. Want to make a glow boosting smoothie? Try some avocado, banana, spinach or apple.
