Dry Skin? Try these 5 hydration hacks for radiant skin.

We’ve all heard everyday remedies to relieve dry, parched skin: drink more water, avoid detergents, use natural products, etc.

Well, we know a thing or two about thirsty skin. Try these hydration hacks for a glowing complexion.  

  • Get and stay ahead of the curve - moisturize immediately after every shower or bath. We are partial to body oil.
  • Resist the urge to use lotion! Don’t settle for it. It contains additives like preservatives, alcohol and other harsh substances that are absorbed through the skin. Instead, use body oil to moisturize. 
  • Sprinkle Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) in your bath water. Unlike sea salt or bath salts that are drying and leaves a film, Epsom salt improves dry skin and softens it. 
  • Eat oily fish. Hello, salmon! Like you needed an excuse. 
  • Dry brush your skin to stimulate lymph flow in the body, exfoliate dead skin cells, and clean pores. 

Bonus tip: Our handmade soap is rich with natural glycerin, which draws moisture to the skin. Have you tried some? See our collection.
