Beat Dry Skin with Natural Products

Winter is a great time for puff jackets, ice skating, snow flakes, but not skin flakes! If you want glowing, smooth, silky skin, read these quick tips on natural solutions.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter

I love using this to remedy chapped lips and frizzy hair. It is also a go-to alternative to pomade.

How-To: For your lips, scoop an amount the size of a dime and apply until it becomes a creamy consistency. On your hair, apply little on fly aways and on the ends. Remember, a little goes a long way. As pomade, you can use it the same way, adding texture to your hair.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil brings my dull and dry skin back to life and glowing again. I use it from head to toe. The smell teleports me to a warm tropical beach.

How-To: To use it as a lotion, scoop a bit of coconut oil and rub it between your palm until your body heat melts it into oil. Then, rub it all over all your body. As a post-makeup highlighter, place it on your brow bone, temples, and nose bridge. As a shine serum, run it through your ends and curls.

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E Oil

I use it as lipgloss, since the consistency is not too sticky. A dab of Vitamin E Oil will makes my lips look extra juicy and also works wonders on my skin.

How-To: Saturate a tip with the oil and apply to your lips on top of lipstick or by itself.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil

This is my favorite makeup remover. While other makeup removers strip the oils from your skin, olive oil moisturizes my skin, while removing the gunk. I also use it like shaving cream since it lets the shaver glide on my skin, giving a close shave, resulting in silky smooth legs.

How-To: To use as a makeup remover, saturate two cotton pads with olive oil and leave it on top of your eyelids. After 20 seconds buff away your eye makeup. Pour a quarter size amount onto your palm and use it as you would a facial cleanser. Next, get a warm wash cloth and wipe away excess oil and dirt. To use it as shaving oil, pour the oil onto your palms and apply on the area you would like to shave just like shaving cream.
