Natural products are so amazing for dry skin because conventional products a lot of times actually contain ingredients that can only make your skin feel hydrated but don’t actually hydrate your skin. Natural oils are the only thing that can truly hydrate your skin. When you have extremely dry skin, what you need to use is oil that will penetrate deeply enough to replenish moisture on a deeper level and then a superficial moisturizer that will help block that moisture in. One of the best base oils that you can use for dry skin would be avocado oil because of its unique ability to penetrate the skin so deeply. After using avocado oil, use a shade butter to lock in that moisture. It’s not just a treatment for dry skin. Like conventional products this is actually a dry skin cure. A lot of them most popular conventional products for dry skin are petroleum or mineral oil based. Petroleum and mineral oil can actually cause the skin to become more dry. Although they immediately make it feel more comfortable when you apply it to the skin because they are so oily and waxy. They actually do not replenish any moisture into the skin.
