Winter's Here: Which Moisturizer is Best for Dry Skin? 

ostrich oil skin care includes oil, soap, lip balm

If you're anything like us, winter can mean dry, chapped skin, thanks to low humidity, cold air, and the oil-stripping effect of those long, hot showers. With colder weather around the corner, now is the time to think about your winter skin care strategy. While everyone's skin has its own set of needs, choosing a moisturizer made with all natural ingredients is a good place to start. Natural creams and lotions are formulated without synthetic additives or chemical preservatives that can have produce unwanted effects over time, like drying, premature aging, or sensitivity. Look for products with effective natural emollients, including Vitamin E and ingredients high in Omegas 3, 6, and 9, which nourish the skin from the inside out. 

American Ostrich Farms' 100% natural body and lip balms are a great choice for anyone looking for hydration without any funny business. We use only therapeutic grade essential oils to scent and flavor our skin care products. Our unscented products are formulated to be hypoallergenic, perfect for those with sensitive skin. Made with pure cosmetic-grade ostrich oil (which is chemically and structurally very similar to the oils naturally produced by healthy human skin), our balms penetrate deep for a long-lasting, nourishing finish.

What's a good moisturizer for sensitive skin?  

Aloe slices with extract

No one wants to sacrifice their complexion for properly hydrated skin. Thankfully, our line of ostrich-oil based moisturizers are non-comedogenic, meaning they won't clog your pores. Made with exclusively 100% natural ingredients, our products absorb well and work with your skin's biology to maintain optimal hydration without any build up of residue at its surface. With no harsh fragrances or artificial additives, even those with skin sensitivities -- including eczema -- report that our body and lip balms deliver effective hydration without irritation.

How do I treat dry skin in the winter?

Moisturizing hands

In a review by Ursa M. on our ostrich oils and balms, she states, " I have dry to normal skin but the high desert really dries it out. The oil stops itching from my eczema on my arms, really makes my face soft and smooths out fine lines, and conditions my hands from excessive hand washing." To banish dry winter skin, take a cue from Ursa, adding ostrich-oil skin care to your daily routine. 

How do you get rid of dry skin?

We, at AOF, are driven to provide the best, natural skin care products with no parabens, synthetic additives, or phthalates. Everything we use has been specifically chosen to help nourish your skin.

Beeswax: Helps skin elasticity and has antibacterial, anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory and germicidal properties.

Aloe Vera: Aloe barbadensis leaf juice possesses documented anti-inflammatory properties, which helps it heal wounds, reduce the discomfort of sunburns, and lock in moisture.
