Has your skin ever felt so dry here in Las Vegas it feels like you have a clay mask on? Well I have and it is not exactly my favorite feeling. Plus it also adds wrinkles, so to hell with that. I have enough issues being a 34 year old woman and dry wrinkled skin will not be one of them. Furthermore spending $100 on skin cream is not my idea of a good time either. You could always go to a certified dermatologist in Las Vegas such as Luxdermatology, as Dr. Robert Leposavic does some amazing things for younger skin. However most options I would opt for come with all kinds of sneaky bad ingredients that some skin care lines smuggle into their creams. So what can a gal or guy do to fight the dry desert heat sucking the moisture right out of your face? Well her are some all natural, over the counter of your local grocery store items to help restore some hydration to that beautiful mug.
If you love to take baths we have some good news for you! Add a tablespoon of coconut or olive oil to your bath for some miracle skin hydration. You can also rub a little more on after you get out of the tub. This is one of my go to’s for hydration other than coconut oil which is probably my favorite, would be this homemade scrub.
Korse Salt or Sea Salt
Optional a squeeze of lemon
Mix these ingredients together and scrub onto your face. Make sure your face is makeup free before you do this. Then just rinse and gently pat dry. Your face will feel like a baby’s bottom. Flax seed oil is also a wonderful one to use. Alcohol free aloe vera or better yet fresh from the plant helps your skin absorb the hydration from the oil better and lock it in. Retinol is anther face cream staple in my box of skin care tools. Buy a pure retinol cream and use it in combination with the other tips. Your skin will plump up and feel so hydrated. You can also use the retinol cream for your bum as it is great for cellulite as well, but we will delve more into that subject another time.
