Having an abundance of melanin is amazing but without the proper care, our skin has a tendency to get really dry no matter what time of year it is.


It's super tempting to go all out at CVS and Target and splurge on glowy lotions and rosy body butters to get our shine on fleek and at its full potential. But what are we really putting on, and into, our bodies in an effort for them to maintain their already natural moisture? It's certainly something to think about.

As we go deeper into a plant-based culture that promotes a jumpstart into health and wellness, it's no secret that there are also all-natural options to help quench our skin's thirst. Because the thirst is certainly real. We just don't have to put a ton of processed products on our bodies to satisfy it. Before your next trip to your local store, take a look at all-natural ways to quench dry skin.

1. Oatmeal

Oatmeal isn't just a good source of fiber at the beginning of your day. It's also a great source for moisture. An oatmeal bath helps treat dry skin in a natural way, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. If you really want to go ham, include powdered oatmeal or creams that include oatmeal as an ingredient. Oatmeal baths are also a known remedy for eczema, especially when it comes to your little ones.
