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.
6. Sunflower Seed Oil
We've heard all the good things about olive oil, coconut oil and even avocado oil. But apparently oil from sunflower seeds attacks hydration in the skin like none other. In reality, olive oil actually causes issues to the skin's barrier, so sunflower seed oil is definitely a better option. The plus side is that sunflower seed oil is full of vitamin E, antioxidants and other nutrients that can help prevent acne, irritation and inflammation. It also contains emollient ingredients, which guarantees your skin will keep its moisture, so there's no worries about having to reapply.
