What are some natural remedies to combat dry skin? According to licensed esthetician Amanda Palo, dry skin is usually sensitive and since winter worsens these conditions, the best approach is to avoid using commercial products that contain harsh chemicals, mineral oil and other petroleum products. Beneficial products would be those with natural hypoallergenic ingredients such as coconut oil, cocoa butter or shea butter as these have been proven to work best! One of my favorite products for dry skin is the JennScents Calendula Moisturizer. It has a thicker consistency, with many high-quality nutritive and hydrating botanicals and it absorbs easily into the skin. A little goes a long way and offers powerful results when used twice daily.
