Battling dry winter skin? Yeah, us too. While diet, exercise and drinking lots of water keeps you healthy, sometimes that’s not enough to keep our skin in perfect condition during the winter months. If your skin needs a little extra help staying soft and supple this time of year, here are 5 all natural products that will help you combat that dry winter skin without harsh chemicals!
1. Balm Me Up
I always end up with little, random dry patches of skin in the winter. Is it eczema? I don’t know, all I know is that it’s annoying! One place I continually have an issue with is the ring finger on my right hand. I get a little bumpy, dry patch there (most likely from washing my hands too much or excessive use of hand sanitizer). It usually takes a couple days of tlc to get it to clear up but I notice the fastest results with Balm Me Up from Balanced Guru.
This super nourishing balm provides deep moisturization to dry winter skin. This smooth and buttery body balm is enriched with a clever mixture of naturally moisturizing Cocoa and Shea butters along with a delightfully invigorating blend of essential oils that will wake up your senses as well as leave your skin soft and supple with out that greasy or tacky feeling you get from other body balms.
This is absolutely one of my must-haves that I will never go without from now on!

THis is one of my new favorites products right here. It’s sitting on my bathroom counter, next to my toothbrush and I find myself using it daily. I just love it!
Sooth Me Slowly naturally hydrates skin with an essential mix of Baobab, Jojoba and Avocado oils that will leave your skin super soft and smooth while sesame and Argan oils balance your skin so that it only feels moisturized, NOT oily. Lavender, Orange and Geranium essential oils work together to create a delicious and heavenly scent that lingers throughout the day in the most pleasant way. I’m addicted to this stuff.

Nothing better for dry skin than good old fashioned coconut oil! We use this stuff on EVERYTHING. Seriously! We cook with it, do oil pulling, make deodorant with it, use it as lip balm, use it on dry skin from head to toe and we even put it in our hair. Maybe it wouldn’t make good toilet paper and perhaps it won’t do my laundry, but it surely does darn near everything else.
