Relief From Dry Winter Skin

I don't know about you, but I am feeling some SERIOUS winter dry skin! I'm not sure if it's a side effect of my pregnancy or my new location, but I think this winter is the driest my skin has ever been. Thankfully I've found a new dry skin lifesaver, along with a couple honorable mentions and general tips that have been keeping me looking (and feeling) human this winter.
Little Seed Farms Body Oil has been the real MVP for me. I was a little hesitant to try it because I have been nervous of being "too oily" my whole life. Then one day I was going crazy with itchy legs and figured it was worth a shot. I'm not exaggerating when I say it was instant relief.

I used about a dropper or two per leg and rubbed it in like lotion. I didn't feel oily or greasy afterward, just relieved. Since then I have used it on my hands, legs, and any other dry spots I get in place of lotion. Shout out to one of our group members who suggested adding the body oil to lotion - that sounds like a great idea too!

A couple other small additions I've made to combat dry skin is a Mother Mother balm bar, especially on my belly and other stretch mark prone spots. I like doing this right after the shower... Sometimes the balm is a little girl but I think the steam fr the shower softens it a bit and makes it easier to apply. I've also adjust my skin care routine (you can read about it here) and am using the Pantry Night Cream every night now instead of once or twice a week since my face has been incredibly dry. 

An honorable mention is Walton Wood Farms "Week from Hell Hand Rescue." Bri currently has it available as a sample with orders, but I need everyone to rally together and convince her to carry the full size. It smells dreamy and makes my hands silky smooth. 

Finally, my biggest tip to fight dry skin is to shower less. This especially includes washing your hair and shaving. I definitely still wash up everyday, but I've noticed a dramatic decrease in my dry skin when I started showering 2-3 times a week. When I do shower I make sure to use a gentle soap and the upfront shampoo & conditioner. With upfront I can skip washing several days which decreases dry hair and dry itchy scalp for me.
