The world around us is harsh. Between natural elements like the sun and wind, there are an exorbitant amount of manmade elements that wreak havoc on our skin, like smog and other pollutants. Even showers, as lovely as they may be and feel, can be potentially damaging to our skin with the water supply in many cities being laced with additives and agents like chlorine, as well as harsh minerals and such.
Dry skin is the root and accelerant of many skin issues like wrinkling, flaking, and dark spots. One of the very first lines of defense against damaged skin, is moisture. My advice is to skip lotions and head straight for a light, absorbent, organic and natural oil. Apply the oil all over your body (from your neck to the bottom of your feet) right out of the shower.
For this task, I recommend The Honest Company's Organic Body Oil. If you have never ordered from The Honest Company just yet, click here to receive a free trial bundle and give them a try!
