WINTER'S HERE: WHICH MOISTURIZER IS BEST FOR DRY SKIN?

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.

HOW DO I TREAT DRY SKIN IN THE WINTER?

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.
