There’s nothing better than the moment you find a solution that completely resolves your problem.

It’s when you find the perfect top to wear for the special event coming up or when you come across a new killer exercise on Youtube for your hip problem. Unfortunately, for a pesky and persistent problem like dry skin, finding that one, ultimate, life-
changing solution never seems to quite happen.

In our modern world, we’re exposed to so many stresses and stimuli that it’s incredibly difficult to pin down the problem to one exact cause. If you change abode every few months, sit in air conditioning all day, or live in a cold place, your dry skin could be a result of the climate.

If you live in the tropics or take daily steaming, hot showers, it could be caused by the heat. If you regularly use high-street beauty products or live in the city, it could be because of pollution, petroleum distillates, or parabens.

The point is, sometimes we just don’t know and simply can’t avoid getting dry skin. But, thankfully, this is where mother nature comes to the rescue. There are a countless number of natural remedies for dry skin that have been used for millennia all
around the world.

Here we’re going to explore three of the best for helping manage and finally get rid of red, itchy, and downright annoying dry skin.

Snowfire Ointment

Snowfire ointment, a mixture of natural essential oils commonly used for skin conditions, has been
used and loved for well over a century. Among its ingredients are clove, which is often used as a treatment for eczema. Cade juniper oil, which is an antiseptic and antimicrobial, and has been used since the nineteenth century to treat conditions such as psoriasis. And citronella, another antiseptic and smoother of the skin.

As it comes in a handy transportable stick form, it’s particularly popular among hikers and other
outdoorsy types who need to soothe very dry chapped winter skin when on the move.

Magnesium Body Lotion

When you have dry skin, it’s not enough to simply focus on managing the symptoms. You also need to attack the root cause.
Magnesium lotion, containing pure magnesium oil, is one way you can do both. By providing your body with a powerful mineral that’s integral in maintaining healthy levels of fatty acids on the skin, the lotion not only nourishes but replenishes your body too — making it one of the best natural remedies for dry skin around.

This magnesium body lotion from BetterYou also contains shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E, meaning it will reduce dryness while at the same time promote a healthy skin glow.

Soybean and Jojoba Oil

As it is high in vitamin B, K, and E, and a rich source of linoleic acid — an omega-6 fatty acid — soybean oil in its own right is one of the best natural oils for maintaining healthy skin.

But as it more closely resembles the oil naturally produced by the skin, jojoba oil is even more effective. When brought together, these two natural oils are incredibly moisturising and restorative natural remedies for dry skin, acne, razor burn, and damaged hair.

Although not an everyday treatment, this soybean and jojoba wax candle is perfect for soothing dry, irritated skin while enjoying a relaxing evening at home — preferably with a loved one to help.
