Okay, it’s February, and the wind has been blowing and
the weather has been cold. How is your skin holding up? I’ll bet it’s
dry. I have a solution for you. Natural oils are very good for your
skin. Look for these oils in a health food store, drug store or online.
For younger skin, use apricot kernel oil, coconut oil,
hempseed oil, wheat germ oil or olive oil.
For more mature skin, use avocado oil, evening primrose
oil or rosa mosqueta oil.
For any skin type, you can use almond oil, cocoa butter,
emu oil, jojoba or squalrite.
All you have to do is apply a small amount of the chosen
oil to your body with damp hands or simply apply it after a bath while
your pores are open. This process will keep your skin soft and
Conventional skin care products are a quick fix, but
don’t actually do anything to improve your skin in the long term.
Simple, natural plant or animal-based oils maintain your skin’s natural
moisture balance, are similar to the oils in human skin, are
non-irritating, won’t clog your pores, and deeply nourish your skin.
These oils will do the same job at a fraction of the
cost of commercial brands and you know what you are using on your skin.
There is nothing wrong with that.
My thought for the month is: Remember that February is
“Heart Month.” Take care of yours.
