    Top 3 tips for dealing with dry skin in the winter

    It’s that time of year again when the temperature drops and the heater goes wild! Leaving some of us with dry, scaly skin that flakes and is itchy. Those with eczema or psoriasis, winter is very hard to manage with the constant dryness and no humidity.

    From my experience treating the dryness with internal and topical products is the only way to really help!

    Internal

    Drink water! I cannot stress this enough! In the colder months of the year it is difficult to drink, a cold iced glass of water is just going to bring down your core temperature. However, drinking water has a huge effect on your skin hydration. Your skin is said to have 30% water and drinking water will make your skin look more “full” or “plump”.

    Keep your fat content high! Avocado, fish, nuts and wholegrains are great for keeping your skin replenished full of omega-3s and omega 6s. Although these fats are high in calories for the amount of density in the food, they are essential for your body! If you were to read a health magazine roughly about 5-7 years ago, it would have said something along the lines of “Eating Fat Makes You Fat and High-Fat Diets Are Dangerous”, which may of gave fats a bad reputation, but I promise, they’re awesome!

    The main objective for the internal side of dry skin is to hydrate the skin internally while cutting down as much as inflammation as possible.

    Topical

    The skincare industry is huge and it is hard to know what product suits every person. I think that treating your skin is easy once you have found an awesome product that you love. As for products, I would suggest something natural as I prefer natural ingredients on my skin rather than chemicals that I don’t really know where they are from. I would suggest our Natural Moisturising Lotion, it smells amazing on your skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and replenished!

    The best time to apply a moisturiser is directly after a shower, your skin pores are open and moist from the water. Upon popular belief, water is actually very drying for your skin, once the water is dry, it leaves your skin feeling scaly and stiff resulting in a “dry” look. Applying a moisturiser directly after a shower will give the skin a barrier and protect it from the cold dryness. 

    Just to recap!

    1. DRINK LOTS OF WATER! (6-8 CUPS DAILY)

    2. EAT GREAT FOOD! (OMEGA-3S & 6S)

    3. MOISTURISE! (DIRECTLY AFTER A SHOWER IDEALLY)

    Give it a try!

    With a. 6 year old and now a baby with eczema there isn’t anything on the market I haven’t tried. Saw this on the internet and decided to give it a try. It’s honestly helping a lot. It takes time but so far the results I’ve seen I’m very pleased with. I remember ordering this with tears in my eyes because as a mom I felt so helpless! Will be placing another other to keep in stock because I finally see results.

    Just 4 days and my husband’s skin was healed!

    A great product for our dog

    We have been using the Mega Oil daily for about a month now. It is added to our dogs food. Today, the groomer said, her coat is looking shiny. Plus she isn't scratching as much as she used to.
    Great news and we will continue to keep on using the mega oil.

    Life Saver!!!!

    I have 3 out of 4 kids with Eczema. So we’ve learned the tricks on how to keep it at bay. However with my youngest it was horrible! We couldn’t control it and he was constantly getting infections from making himself bleed. Saw this on TikTok and figured why not it’s worth a shot! So grateful for this product! We put it on at night and at the midnight feeding and changing I could tell there was a difference. We’re 1 week in and wow!! Night and day!!

    Perfect

    Our daughter has a really bad eczema (atopic) and allmost no cream has made her skin better but at least for now this has been working. She's not so itchy and redness is allmost totally gone.
