Dry Skin Therapy - Protect Your Skin During The Cold Winter Months And Keep It Supple And Smooth

Dry skin is very uncomfortable. It sometimes feels stiff and itchy. Finding an effective dry skin therapy can be difficult especially when you read the label of most of the ones being sold on the market today and see the list of ingredients in them. If it contains mineral oil don't use it on your skin.

Many products make big promises which they cannot seem to keep. After using those well advertised moisturizer you are still left with dry, itchy, flaky skin. These poor-performing lotions or creams should be banned; however there are more of them being manufactured each year.

The price of a product does not mean it will be more effective. Many brand name products that sell for high price does not perform as expected. I have tried and tested many products ranging from $5.00 to $100 and have a difficult time finding one that really works

The bottom line is the ingredient in a dry skin therapy is the important component that is missing from most of these products. Natural organic ingredients that are extracted from nature are essential to effectively treating your dry skin problem.

Here are a few hints on what ingredients to avoid:

1. Mineral Oil
2. Dioxane
3. Parabens
4. Fragrances
5. Alcohol

These substances will not help moisturize your skin and make it supple and smooth. They will instead make it dry, wrinkled, irritated and can lead to inflammation.

What you need to moisturize your skin is natural oils and emollients. Here are a list of natural oils and emollients you want to look for in your dry skin therapy:

Grapeseed Oil - This is a powerful antioxidant which creates an invisible layer on your skin, to retain moisture. It is very effective for rejuvenating the skin around the eyes and has also been proven to diminish stretch marks on the skin. Grapeseed oil is rich in linoleic acid and many other essential oils which are necessary for skin health, and also contains natural vitamin E.

Jojoba Oil - It deeply moisturizes the skin and makes it feel soft, smooth and velvet-like. It reduces wrinkles and stretch marks. The make-up of jojoba oil is very close to that of human sebum, the oil secreted by the skin. Making it easily accepted by our skin. If you have oily, dry or combination skin, you can rest assured. Jojoba oil actually helps to balance your skin's sebum, so it moisturizes dry skin and limits the oil production in oily skin.

Active Manuka Honey - A unique type of honey originating from New Zealand. It heals the skin due to its unique enzymes that contains many healing properties. It has many healing benefits and works to repair, restore and rejuvenated dry skin.

D-Panthenol - (vitamin B5) Helps to repair skin tissue and acts as a natural moisturizer. It protects the skin naturally against sunburn, and gives relief for existing sunburn. It enhances the natural tanning process.

A dry skin therapy should be able to heal, moisturize and help your skin retain moisture. Find one that will do all of this and stop suffering from a problem for which there are solutions.
