My skin gets so dry in the winter. The forced air in the heater and drinking less water then I should in the winter all tend to turn my soft skin in to more dry and scaly skin. So I started to look for an all natural body wash that would help me keep my skin soft and smooth during the winter, and really all year round.
Of course the first step is to drink more water. Proper hydration is huge for the health of your skin and for your overall health in general. It’s tough in the winter to do, but is one of those things you just have to stay in the habit of doing, drinking plenty of filtered water.
This body wash recipe is amazing, and it’s so easy to make. Basically you just mix these four ingredients together in a pump bottle and your done. It literally is easier than loading up your car, going to the store, and purchasing store bought body washes. Plus it’s all natural and much better for your skin.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 3/4 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
- 3/4 cup Unscented Castile Soap
- 1/2 cup Raw Honey (preferably local to your area)
- 15-20 drops of your favorite Essential Oils (try to choose ones that good for your skin like Frankincense or Lavender)
Simply mix all the ingredients together well and then add to a pump bottle. It’s that easy!
You can use Grapeseed, Almond, or any other type of carrier oil in place of the Fractionated Coconut Oil but that’s my favorite oil to use.
Use in the shower daily for soft, smooth, healthy skin.
