Dry Skin, Dry Hair, Dry Nails

DRY SKIN, DRY HAIR, DRY NAILS

It’s been a fairly mild season for a lot of regions, which is nice when it comes to the health of our bodies. Did you know that harsh weather can wreak havoc on our skin, hair and nails. However, due to the pandemic, several other factors are terrorizing these things instead.

Washing hands is a MUST

Since the beginning of the sweep of Covid-19, health officials have agreed on one thing… Washing hands. It’s necessary to wash our hands much more frequently and for a long period of time than ever before. Ergo, our hands can become extremely dry and cracked, which isn’t good when it comes to any kind of virus or bacteria that could creep in through little cuts in the skin.

Prevention is key

Keeping our hands from cracking and staying clean is the goal. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Next apply a moisturizer of some kind. My favorite is Argan Oil. It’s light. It dries quickly without leaving a thick, oily residue behind. A little goes a long way… a drop will do you well. And best part, Argan Oil can be used on other parts of the body, including the scalp and hair!

Stop falling out

During the pandemic, a common theme of hair loss has been reported for those that haven’t gotten sick. Quarantine hair loss is a thing. It’s a strange phenomenon that no one can really explain. Is it a deficiency in vitamins or a lack of sunshine? Is it just as simple as common hair loss brough on by stress? Argan Oil is a natural strengthener to hair and is nurturing to the scalp. Again, a little goes a long way. But before you try to douse your head in Argan, be sure to do a test spot on the back of your wrist to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions. Practice safety first, always.

Natural nails

With the closing and reopening of salons, who knows when it’s possible to get a refill on the nails? Some have asked is it even worth taking the risk of COVID-19 exposure since no one is seeing my nails but me? That’s a question only you can answer for yourself. But many have gone all natural with their nails over the last several months. Repairing the insult of what we can put our nails through just to look fabulous can take some time and patience. And lots of nourishment. Argan oil can help with that, too. Pack with vitamins and anti-inflammatory properties, Argan has the ability to strengthen nails and heal damage. Another bonus, Argan can help treat nail fungus, naturally.

Getting Ready for Summer Skin and Hair

Getting Ready for Summer Skin and Hair

As the season changes, so does our skin and hair. Preparing for any season takes a little TLC so your body doesn’t pay the price. Dry skin is common in the winter, but as we transcend from winter to spring, dry skin and hair tends to happen.

Signs that Your Skin and Hair Needs Moisture

Dry, peeling or breaking skin or hair is usually a good sign that you need to hydrate yourself. The best way to hydrate your skin and hair is by drinking plenty of water. Eight, eight ounces of water is needed per day. I’ve heard time and time again from people saying, ‘I can’t drink eight bottles of water per day’. Well, first off, most bottles of water are sixteen ounces, so you would only need to drink four if that was your only source. However, fruits and veggies hold a lot of water. Eating your daily servings help contribute to your daily needed water content.

Keep Clean and Balanced

When your skin is clean and hydrated, you will be able to maintain a healthier balance in skin tone. Oil or shiny spots on skin is also a sign that you need hydration. The body is genius. It knows how to try and hydrate on its own, unfortunately, it will only show up in certain areas like, the T-zone. If are part of the percentage of the population that has honest oily skin issues, check with your dermatologist for your best options. For the others, in most cases, when you try to dry out the area, it will only make the shiny areas worse. Instead, try hydrating.

Add Oils

Adding oils into your diet can help promote moisture and hydration. Nuts are a great source to maintain great health and hydration. Also, try cooking with olive oil, coconut oil or sunflower seed to nourish your body. You’ll find these benefits are helping you from the inside out. I personally like adding external oils into my daily regimen. Essential oils have plenty of healing properties. One of my favorite external oils that has multiple purposes is Argan oil. Use Argan oil on hair, skin or nails for hydration, balancing skin tone, calming inflammation, reducing wrinkles and preventing hair-breakage or skin breakouts while stimulating hair and nail growth. Greenesthetics.com offers a 100% Moroccan Argan oil as well as other cool products including their new Alightener Foam for teeth whitening while cleaning your mouth tray or an Invisalign retainer.

Exfoliate to Look Polished

Removing dead skin cells is an important part of maintaining skin health. Removing the build up can help reduce pores and remove fine lines. Also, exfoliating requires a light scrub, so you’re providing a light massage to the skin, which stimulates cells to regenerate. Exfoliate the skin on a weekly basis. Don’t just focus on your face. It’s important to scrub the whole body.
