Dear Dry Skin -- Get your $h!t together.
Dear dry itchy skin,
Ugh. Why do you happen to me? I dislike you. You drive me crazy with your flaking and redness. I’ve done nothing to deserve you. I give and I give all year long, slathering you in rich creams and butters morning and night. What do I get in return?
I know I’ve let you down a few times before, like that beach day where I forgot to put on sun block.. I know sometimes I don’t drink enough water to hydrate you properly… but can you not forgive me?! I mean a couple mess ups for months of agony seems a little over the top don’t you think?
I have a lot going on in my life right now with the holidays and family. I don’t have time to baby you. When you’re ready in the spring to show me your true colors then we can talk…. Ya, that’s right. We’ll talk. We’ll talk about how you can get your pasty a$$ pulled together for summer. Me and my friend sunshine will be back to help you get your $h!t together.
Moody Sister Whit's Top Tips
For dry, itchy skin, eczema and chapped lips or skin.
1. Drink Water
Make sure that you are hydrating from the inside too. It might be hard to push liquids in the winter when all you want is a hot drink. Try drinking warm lemon water!
2. Hydrate & Protect morning & night.
Find a good rich moisturizer that will hydrate your skin and create a barrier between your skin and the elements. We recommend Dry Skin Cream for your face or small patches or Rich Hand & Body Cream for large area or family use.
3. Chapped Lips & Skin
Lip skin is not like any other skin on your body so extreme elements such as harsh cold winter air or beach days in the sun will cause it grief. Make sure to hydrate and protect those lips with a lip balm and you can even use your lip balm on your cheeks to protect from wind chapping.
4. Itchy Scalp no more!
Stop with the oily and greasy scalp treatments that are hard to wash out! Use a hydrating toning mist to instantly calm, sooth and hydrate without adding oil. Did we mention it's easy to wash out?! Spray into scalp, massage and go on with your day!
5. Bath Recipes
You can calm and soothe dry itchy skin with an oil and oat bath. Add a cup of oil (olive or coconut will do!) and a cup of finely ground oats to your next bath or shower to take dry skin care to the next level. You can find more specific DIY recipes here.
