1. The Natural Moisture Boosters: Oils and Butters

Dry skin craves hydration and nourishment. Natural oils and butters are your skin's best friends when it comes to combating dryness. Here are a few superstar ingredients to look out for:

  • Jojoba Oil: This oil closely resembles the skin's natural sebum, making it an excellent moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin.
  • Shea Butter: Known for its rich, emollient properties, shea butter soothes and locks in moisture.
  • Coconut Oil: A versatile oil that helps prevent moisture loss and keeps your skin soft and supple.

2. The Healing Powers of Botanicals

Eczema can be a challenging skin condition to manage, but nature offers some powerful remedies. Here are a few botanical heroes:

  • Calendula: Known for its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, calendula can help calm irritated skin.
  • Chamomile: This gentle herb is renowned for its ability to reduce redness and inflammation.
  • Lavender: Lavender essential oil possesses both calming and anti-inflammatory qualities, making it beneficial for eczema-prone skin.

    3. Waxes: A Natural Protective Barrier

    Waxes play a crucial role in sealing in moisture and protecting the skin's barrier. Beeswax and cocoa butter, for example, are excellent choices to create a protective shield against harsh environmental factors that can exacerbate dryness and eczema.

    How to Incorporate Natural Remedies into Your Skincare Routine

    Now that we've highlighted some natural ingredients to combat dryness and eczema, here's how you can optimize your skincare routine:

    1. Cleansing: Use a gentle, natural cleanser to avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils.

    2. Moisturizing: Apply natural oils or butters after cleansing to lock in moisture. Our Puremess products, featuring Tamanu, jojoba, cocoa and shea butter are perfect for this step.

    3. Spot Treatment: For eczema flare-ups, apply a soothing botanical balm containing calendula or chamomile.

    4. Protection: Don't forget to shield your skin from harsh weather conditions with a wax-based product like our Puremess Body Custards.
