Don’t cover that dry winter skin, try a home remedy using chia seed oil.
I’ve moved to 100% natural skin care – no chemicals, dyes or perfumes. Many of the natural / organic skin care lines are good, but pricey. This time of year I like to incorporate more oil/moisture into my regiment. I’ve tried olive oil, coconut, sesame and all of them have their benefits but chia oil is by far my favorite. There are many studies on the benefits of chia seed oil, some studies have even referred to it as the single best ingredient for moisturizing dry skin. Here are a few ways I am using this amazing oil to get rid of dry winter skin, for my face and body:
Chia Seed Oil Cleanser
Rice Flour and Chia Seed Oil facial scrub and exfoliator -combine equal parts rice flour and chia seed oil to create a paste, rub evenly on your face and throat avoiding the eye area, rinse and follow with a moisturizer. Use in the am/pm.
Chia Seed Oil Masks
Cocoa powder and chia seed oil Nourishing Mask– combine 1 and ½ tablespoons Chia seed oil, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon honey, and 1/2 tablespoon oatmeal. Apply to
your face for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse with warm water. Use twice weekly.
Chia Seed Oil and Baking Soda Wrinkle reducing Mask – combine 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon chia seed oil, and 2 tablespoons baking soda. Apply to your face for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse with warm water. Use twice weekly.
Chia Seed Oil Moisturizer
For Face -add to your favorite daytime or evening facial moisturizer. I find that the chia seed oil absorbs into the skin much better with a little lotion based mix.
For Body – use after your shower on your entire body prior to completely drying off after your shower , or after you’ve towelled off, mix with your favorite all over skin moisturizer My skin has seriously never felt better after using this.
