A Dry Skin Cure: One Balm, Endless Possibilities

Posted on Feb. 19, 2013

Short of a magic beauty wand? No problem. Here are a few products that check all the boxes.

Liz Earle's Super Balm Sure, it's a bit of a splurge ($29), but this balm is a one-stop shop. It can be used anywhere from head to toe to soothe and hydrate. The texture of the balm is a little gritty, similar to a lip scrub, and is made with natural ingredients including Vitamin E, Rosehip Oil and Neroli Oil that give off a pretty strong, but not unpleasant, aroma. I used the Super Balm specifically to target my dry hair and noticed my frizz decrease too.


Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment At about $6 a container, Aquaphor will relieve chapped lips, cracked skin and other dry parts.





Perhaps the ultimate multi-tasking moisturizer is coconut oil. It's great for cooking and beautifying. If, like me, dry hair is a concern of yours, pure Coconut Oil is a savior. Not only does it have that beach-y, island smell I love, but I can easily pick it up from any grocery store at about $7 a jar. More importantly, I see results in my skin and hair, literally, overnight! When buying your container, look for extra virgin or organic coconut oil that has not been hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. I put a little container of coconut oil in all my bags so I'm never stranded without it.
