Dry Skin Remedy For Body
Do you have super dry skin on your body like I do?
I’ve had dry skin as long as I can remember and I’m always looking for some more home remedies to help alleviate this desert that I call my skin
That’s because skincare matters a lot to me. Ain’t no shame in my game.
And I don’t know why. Maybe in the big scheme of things, it doesn’t matter but I still care.
Maybe it’s because we have to look at it all the time.
Maybe it’s because we can’t help but compares ours to others but whatever the reason, we can sometimes obsess about the state of our skin.
The skincare industry is a billion-dollar industry and for good reason.
Our skin is our largest and most noticeable organ.
No matter much I wished we only got judged by the content of our character or by our actions, we still (especially women) get judged by our beauty and skincare is a big part of that.
I used to watch YouTube videos that would show women doing a 10 step skincare routine every night and 20-minute shower routines.
Their skin was beautiful no doubt but after I get off from work and start writing, running my blogs, cooking dinner, and cleaning, I don’t always want to invest that much time in my skincare.
Maybe I should but I always feel like I have better things to do. However, all skincare does not have to be quite so time-consuming.
If you want more beautiful skin but you don’t want to spend 30 minutes in the shower every night, then try this quick tip that really takes less than 5 minutes.
It makes my skin feel so soft so stay tuned.

A Home Remedy To Moisturize Dry Body Skin
Supplies you will need:
A carrier oil like:
Essential Oils that are good for your skin like:
Step 1: Make your oil potion
Take the carrier oil of your choice and fill the spray bottle with it.
I typically use almond oil but you can use fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil would be even better because it is the closest in composition to your body’s natural oils.
Any liquid carrier oil will work. You just pick whichever one works best for you. Or you can do a combination of oils. It’s all good.
Awesome tip: fill your sink with hot water and then plug the drain so the water stays in the sink.
Then put your oil bottle in the sink so that the oil can be heating up while you’re in the shower.
Step 2: Take your shower
Sometimes I hear that you should take a hot shower to open your pores. Some people swear by cold showers.
I typically take warm to lukewarm showers.
Cold showers are no fun unless it’s after a workout and really hot showers feel amazing but strip all of the natural oils from your skin so that’s obviously a no go.
Go for warm and end with lukewarm to cool unless you are hardcore.
Step 3: Get your spray bottle and take aim…at your skin
So after you have done you’ve rinsed off from your final lather, take the spray bottle and gently spray the oil mixture all over your body.
Then in the words of Martin, “Let it marinate”.
In other words, let the oil sink into your skin for a minute or two.
Rub it all over to make sure no skin is left behind.
Awesome tip: in order to keep your shower from becoming slippery and dangerous, you can step outside of the shower briefly and spray your skin. If you do it on your bathroom mat or a towel, you shouldn’t have any problems.
Step 4: Do one final lukewarm rinse
After the oil has been on your skin for a minute or two take another quick lukewarm rinse under the shower.
This gets the top oily layer off your skin but you will still have super soft and moisturized skin. Just not oil slick skin.
This is a super quick and easy way to get more moisturized skin and if you keep doing it enough the essential oils that you put in the oil can start to really transform and heal your skin for the better.
See, just because you rinse some of the oil off doesn’t mean you have washed all of it off. You will still reap the benefits of the oils over time.
Lavender and frankincense are both good for healing and eliminating scars.
Helichrysum is good for lightening and making stretch marks disappear…at least to the point where you can see them.
I know my stretch marks are not as noticeable when I was using helichrysum consistently.
And my stretch marks did not return to their normal state after I stopped using it so the improvements were permanent.
