Dry Skin + Scalp Savers

There's something about the change of seasons that has my skin completely out of whack!  Unfortunately, I've noticed my skin on my body is dry to the point of flaking and itching...and so is my scalp!  Yikes!  

If this sounds like you, thankfully I have found some products that have been working their magic and saving my skin.  And not just helping a little, but completely restoring my skin + scalp!  Read on to see what I've been using!

exfoliation.

The first key to dry skin is exfoliation.  You have to get that dry skin off, so that your body can produce new, healthy skin!  I love an in-shower scrub, but usually they are just too oily for me.  I am so happy to have discovered the Indie Lee Coconut Citrus Scrub because it does the job without leaving me greasy.  The scrub comes as more of a solid (vs granules suspended in an oil) and that's due to the fact that Indie uses coconut oil (which solidifies when it's not heated)!  I love, love, love this stuff.  For my face, I prefer something that does not contain much oil at all.  I want mostly scrubbies so I can have fresh skin to apply my skincare.  I have been using the Acai Pulp Facial Scrub from 100% Pure and it's perfect!  It's made with Organic Acai Berries, which are naturally high in Vitamins A + C to help balance the skin.

body balm.

To restore moisture in the skin on my body, I am obsessed with the Osea Anti-Aging Body Balm.  It is pure luxury!  It's this milky elixir that just feels amazing.  I don't really detect a scent.  I LOVE it!!  It's not a lotion, and not an oil.  It's perfection!

face.

For extra hydration on my face, I love the Josh Rosebrook Advanced Hydration Mask.  You may have caught this on my Jade Roller Instagram Story!  This thing WORKS.  You can leave it on as long as you like.  The removal is waterless, so you simply remove with a cloth or cotton pad.  I like to follow with the Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream for a mega boost of moisture!!

scalp.

OK, now it's time to talk about the embarrassing thing that I mentioned earlier.  DRY SCALP.  Thankfully, this issue is seasonal for me and not year-round.  When I notice the dryness at my hairline, it's Max Green Alchemy time!  This Shampoo + Conditioner really works and leaves my hair just as it found it (not drying or greasy for me)!

I hope you can find some relief!!  GOOD NEWS!!  Spring is right around the corner!
