If your skin is anything like mine you may have suffered from dry skin at some point in your life. Dry skin can affect us during certain seasons, due to medical issues, or even just during pregnancy. I’ve experienced it with and without being pregnant but mostly during the cooler seasons.
Foods that contribute to maintaining healthy skin.
I bet you didn’t know that the foods you eat can play a big part in not only clearing your skin but also preventa dry skin. Yup!! Keep on reading lol. Eating nuts, fish(salmon,herring), sweet potatoes and avocados are definitely great for those with dry skin. These foods are high in omega-3 fats, zinc, Vitamin E & C which all contribute to having healthy skin.
Moisturizing is super important, but it’s also important that you know how how and when to properly moisturize. it is best to apply lotion or balm immediately after bathing or showering. Try not to wait longer than 45 minutes, this ensures that existing moisture traps into your skin. Personally, I use my own products because my favorite ingredient, Mango Butter, is the base of the body balm. Mango butter is usually compared to cocoa butter just slightly more moisturizing and it doesn’t have that “cocoa scent”. I could go on and on about the amazing benefits of mango butter and why myself and many others choose it over cocoa butter but I’ll just drop this link https://bettersheabutter.com/learn-everything-about-mango-butter-mango-butter-benefits-for-skin/ 😉. I highly recommend you try out mango butter products or raw mango butter if you don't prefer to use our balm. Though, I will warn you the texture as it comes is pretty until you touch and it melts like butter! If you are interested in our body balm check it out here!
I hope this blog helps you!
