Adding Moisture To Dry Skin

Posted on June 29, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Simple masks can be made by mashing avocado and whole fat plain yogurt together.  Slather on, wait a few minutes and rinse off.  For a pure moisturizer, olive oil can be smoothed on and the excess tissued off.   Herbs can soothe the skin, try aloe vera gel or chamomile tea dabbed on with cotton as a toner.  Those are just a few simple and easy ways to help dry skin regain balance.

Before using anything new on your skin, do a spot test to find if you are sensitive or allergic to any ingredient.

Can this moisture mask be used on oily skin. I’d love to try it.

Avocados are rich in oil, which makes them so right for dry skin. For oily skin you might want to try papaya. In the post “Green Skincare Journals — Finding Papaya” you can find some ideas on making a mask with papaya. If you live in an area where papayas are hard to find, you can subsitute apple, pear or grape. Blend till smooth and add yogurt. A couple of teaspoons of bran, wheat germ or oat flour will thicken the mask and also blot up excess oil from your skin. Apply as usual, rinse off completely.

As always, test on a small area before use, in case you have an allergy to any of the ingredients.
