Dealing With Dry Skin

Bikini Girl in the Desert

Extremes of skin types are equally problematic. Those with oily skin wish their skin was drier and those with dry skin wish it had more oils. The truth is we all want healthy skin.

So how do you turn dry skin into healthy skin?

The first thing to realize is healthy skin comes from inside. To deal with dry skin the first step is to ensure you hydrate sufficiently.

Make sure you drink plenty of water or fruit juice. The problem in using liquids to hydrate and create healthy skin is the water arrives at the skin last.

As the moisture is drawn from the liquids you drink, it hydrates all the other organs before it reaches the skin. This is good in many ways as it ensures the essential organs receive healthy hydration on the way. The order of priority tends to be the heart and brain first, then the main muscle groups and then major systems such as the digestive and respiratory functions. The skin then receives its share. Once you have nicely hydrated healthy skin you know the rest of your body has also benefitted.

Get in the habit of carrying and drinking water or juice.

Oh, and by the way, alcohol is no help as it actually draws moisture from the skin, as does caffeine.

The other way to turn dry skin into healthy skin is to use a good natural beauty product to moisturize.

Use a good natural skincare product in the morning and at night. The nighttime application is especially important as it is less likely to be rubbed off and of course it is when we are at rest that the skin is renewed and regenerated.

The morning application is also useful as it not only moisturizes the skin but provides a protective layer against such enemies of healthy skin such as pollutants.

A thin layer of a moisturizing natural skincare product will be sufficient.

Don’t forget that natural skincare products are better for dry skin as they will not irritate the skin as some chemical versions might.

The Benefits Of Zinc Oxide To Natural Skincare

Zinc oxide has many applications in several fields, including in the production of rubber and concrete and as a food additive. However this adaptable substance, probably used in India around 500BC and by the Romans too, is particularly useful in medicine and as a constituent of mineral cosmetics.

This additive to natural beauty products is a key ingredient of the traditional skin treatment calamine lotion. It is anti-inflammatory and is used in sunscreens as a result of its natural skincare property of adhering to the skin and reducing the amount of potentially dangerous ultra violet rays absorbed.

This feature of non-absorption means zinc oxide is nonirritating and nonallergenic. There is some evidence it may well be an anti-oxidant too.

Some cheaper sunscreens use a nano zinc oxide but this is absorbed by the skin and is less effective and may even cause health problems (although studies are yet to establish this).

This natural skincare ingredient also features in cream designed to prevent nappy (or diaper) rash due to its abilities to combat skin irritations through its adherence to the skins surface. Zinc oxide also has antibacterial properties, which help its abilities in natural skincare.

Acne can also be controlled as a result of zinc oxides anti-inflammatory properties and it ability to also control excessive skin oil. Through its promotion of healthy skin, this substance also helps scars heal more quickly.

As a result of these advantages, this useful substance can also be found in rectal suppositories and in treatments (such as calamine lotion) for chapped, dry or itching skin and minor burns.

Zinc oxide is also used in nutritional supplements as a source of zinc, which is useful for DNA and immune system maintenance.

With all its benefits to healthy skin, it is clear that zinc oxide is a useful ingredient in natural beauty products, especially natural skin products.

Proto-col’s Instant Body Bliss product is an indulgent natural skincare product: a luxurious scrub which buffs up the skin to leave it feeling glowing smooth and fabulous.

It is one of those delightful natural beauty products, which is luxurious and yet affordable and leaves a beautifully healthy skin.

The feel of this natural skincare product is decidedly tropical with pampering essential oils such as neroli and sandalwood to deal with any stretch marks and cellulite. Such oils are also reputed to be natural aphrodisiacs so your partner will be appreciative too, especially as the Instant Body Bliss will leave you with a beautiful light and delicate tropical fragrance.

This natural skincare product contains only natural, plant-based ingredients so is ideal for sensitive skin. It can be used as often as you like but once or twice a week should be sufficient. However, as it is one of those natural beauty products, which will be considered a treat, you may want to use it more often!

As with all Proto-col products, Instant Body Bliss is not tested on animals.

The product is ideal for massaging treatments, a body exfoliating treatment the day before spray tanning, to work on any tide marks left from tanning or to improve the skin after holiday sunbathing.

Studies have shown that the regular massaging of this natural skincare product into areas where fatty tissues are stored helps break down the fat and so helps reduce lymphathic damage. Such regular massage will thus reduce cellulite.

The product is contained in an attractive jar and first appears with intriguing levels of various pinks, which are the oils and salts separated. The first action therefore is to get a small spoon and mix these together.

The natural skincare product should then be massaged gently into the body for a least a minute. Work particularly on areas where fat may be a problem, such as the thighs and tummy.

Once you have experienced enough bliss, rinse your body slowly in warm water and pat dry. Then enjoy the smoothness of your skin!

So what are the ingredients of Instant Body Bliss?

There are many effective natural products in this natural skincare product.

Grape Seed oil is used as it is an astringent and is rich in vitamins, as is lemongrass, which is a great skin tonic working on oily skin, open pores and acne.

Melon is a wonderful skin conditioner so it is included, as is apricot for it’s humectant qualities and the fact it is rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals.

As you massage this natural skincare product into your increasingly healthy skin you will feel the Dead Sea Salts as they heal and sooth the skin.

The Proto-col Instant Body Bliss is one of those natural beauty products that is a treat you really should allow yourself once in a while.

Vitamin C In Anti Aging Products

Many natural beauty products include vitamin C in their ingredients. What are the advantages of this particular vitamin to healthy skin, especially in those claiming anti- aging properties?

Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, enables the production of collagen and, as we know, collagen is essential to healthy skin. A loss of vitamin C results in a loss of elasticity in the skin and wrinkling – similar to that seen in people who have spent too long in the sun. In addition, a lack of vitamin C results in wounds and indeed the gums not healing correctly.

A well-known symptom of an extreme lack of vitamin C is the condition known as scurvy. This was the curse of seafarers years ago and symptoms include bleeding gums and open wounds.

Vitamin C is also a good antioxidant and ensures healthy skin through the scavenging of free radicals. Vitamin C also has benefits to the health of blood vessels and the immune system.

One problem is vitamin C oxidizes easily on contact with the air so good natural beauty products have to carefully formulated to prevent this. You will know if oxidization has occurred as a light brown residue will form around the neck of the container. Oxidized vitamin C loses much of its antioxidant properties.

One way to overcome the problem is to use not vitamin C but a derivative of it but this is less effective on the skin. Pure vitamin C products are therefore usually expensive. This clearly gives manufacturers of natural beauty products a problem but there are quite a few that have solved the problem without making the natural skincare product too dear.

Of course, a good diet with plenty of vitamin C in it (using perhaps citrus fruit) will help, or if required, good natural supplements. Good nutrition always shows in the complexion.

Be sure to take care in your selection of natural beauty products.
