Dry skin and winter


The cold air tends to dry out most people's skin, and therefore our skin requires more care and attention. Some of the basics is to moisturize your skin from the outside and the inside...that means don't forget to drink your glasses of water.

A good way to moisturize your skin is to use SMB Organics lotion with essential oils or use your favorite essential oil with a carrier oil. Essential oils should always be diluted, and that's what the purpose of the carrier oil or lotion is.

Jojoba oil is a good carrier that I would recommend. It is technically not an oil but is a liquid wax. The fatty lipids in jojoba oil is the nearest to ours, and it also will not clog pores. About 7 - 10 drops of your favorite essential oil mixed into 1 oz of jojoba oil would be a good start. Remember that some oils are photosensitive. Lavender, sandalwood, geranium are a few good examples of essential oils.
