There’s nothing worse than dry, itchy skin on your hands or feet. Dry skin can happen anytime during the year, but tends to be more prominent during winter months.
In winter, low temperatures, low humidity and strong harsh winds deplete skin of its natural lipid layer, which keeps the skin from drying out. The dry air from fires and other heating sources also sucks the moisture out of the skin.
To keep skin soft and supple your goal is not to add moisture to the skin, but to keep it in.
One of the best ways of locking in moisture is by applying a lotion or cream on hands and feet after you have had a shower or washed your hands.
Here at Balanced Energy we make 6 nourishing Balanced Body Balms, with beautiful, certified organic essential oil blends that benefit your skin all year round, especially in winter.
All Balanced Body Balm starts with a base of high quality, certified organic, natural plant oils: moisturising Coconut Oil which prevents dryness and flaking of the skin. Jojoba oil containing many different varieties of tocopherols which make up vitamin E, vitamin E helps to promote healthy and clear skin as it contains high levels of antioxidants to protect from the damaging effects of free radicals and is very anti-bacterial. Cocoa butter penetrates through the top layer of your skin to keep the lower layers healthy and hydrated, delivering vitamins A, E, and C which are essential for healthy skin cells. Shea nut butter is a promoter for cell renewal, increasing circulation and containing cinnamic acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays. And last but not least, Evening Primrose oil which contains a high concentration of fatty acids called GLA’s, the fatty acids that are largely responsible for its remarkable healing properties, the GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) and other nutrients in this oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin. Added to all of these great ingredients are the six Balanced Energy essential oil blends and Energy Essence blends which make the benefits of this balm so fantastic for the health of the skin.
