4Foods That Can Help Heal Insanely Dry Skin
Between cold wind and dry indoor heat, the fall and winter months can be exceptionally harsh on our skin. And many of us are making our chapped skin worse by using harsh cleansers and toners that really aren’t necessary?
What about when your skin is thirsty and begging to be quenched right now? Try one of these moisturizers made with superfoods that are proven to do good .
1. MILK AND HONEY
Reap the benefits of both of these foods in one bottle. Donofrio(dermatologist) says the fats and lactic acid in milk are incredibly calming for irritated skin when applied topically. Make a cool milk compress at home by soaking a cloth in a bowl of cold milk and applying to irritated skin. Honey is not only a natural humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture, but its antibacterial and antifungal properties help fight germs living on your skin’s surface.
2. OLIVE OIL
“There are fewer signs of aging in people who consume more olive oil than people who don’t,” says Donofrio. This is because olive oil is packed with polyphenols, a type of plant compound with antioxidant properties.
Green tea protects the body against UV light both when used topically and when brewed to drink, says Donofrio. Topical green tea, like the kind of Cultivar Organic Green Tea and Arnica Under-Eye Serum has also been shown to improve rosacea, acne, and eczema.
In addition to being naturally moisturizing, coconut oil also boasts antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties, says Donofrio. Try RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream, which is unrefined and gentle enough for acne-prone skin.
