Winter has definitely arrived. We had our first snow storm earlier this week with 15 cm of snow. I am not a winter person and what I don't like most is getting dry skin. My hands are so dry and sometimes cracked. I apply hand lotion constantly but I am looking for alternative ways to keep my skin hydrated.
I am new to using oil as I had the misconception of oil is messy, sticky and not for my oil-combination skin type. I thought applying oil on my face would make my face break out more by clogging pores. But it is actually the opposite. A good natural oil "tricks" your skin into thinking it has enough oil and would stop producing excess oil.
I was introduced to Eden's Semilla Vitamin E Oil *and Jojoba Oil * recently and have been testing out the 100% organic natural oil on my face, legs and hair.
The bottles of oil come with droppers which make application so much easier. Not the most effective dropper and whenever I use it, I have to get some kleenax standby as oil seems to leak out of the dropper too easily. Add a few drops of the vitamin E oil and use it alone as a moisturizer or add drops to your current moisturizer. The oil has a very faint scent and it is absorbed quickly into the skin.
I like the versatility of natural oil. You can use it on face, body and even hair. I apply a few drops to my towel-dried hair and find it helps revive my hair, making it look more "alive" and not as dull.
Jojoba Oil has minimal scent as well. This claims to help reduce visibility of scars, fine lines and wrinkles. I am using this for a few scars on my legs to see if it really makes a difference. I have only been using this for a week and will see if continued use would lighten the scar.
Another use I like with this Jojoba Oil is to apply it on cuticles and this I can tell really helps.
Overall, I am very happy with these 2 natural organic oil from Eden's Semilla. They are reasonably-priced and they are 100% natural and organic, making it safe to use even on sensitive skin. They will be great help to relieve winter dry skin and damaged hair. Do you have any remedies to help with winter dry skin?
