What causes dry skin? Dehydration and a lack of healthy fats are the two most common culprits! One easy way to help ease troubled skin is to stay hydrated. Good, clean, drinking water is top of the list for awesome hydration help. Next up is healthy fats. Coconut, avocado, and olive oils are all great. Fats from pasture raised animals are going to be the best for your body. Vitamin D is stored in fat, so you will also get a healthy dose from your locally raised pastured meats!
Lastly, let’s talk about topical products. Jergens original has something silly like 15 ingredients. Do we need all those things on our skin? Heck no. A simple fat/oil of your choosing, and beeswax to help hold it on is all you really need! The more simple, the better. Do you really want all that weird stuff just sitting on your skin?!?!
