I have never had perfect skin before. I began to take good care of my skin look back when I was a teenager. Generally, I think everyone begins to care about their appearance during that time because at that age a lot of sensitive things such as first sympathy, kiss, and love happen to us at this time. So, how can you be the most attractive person for your lover? No doubt, you must be the most beautiful girl at school. Many jars of cream, scrubs, and other cosmetics appeared on my shelf in my bathroom at that time.
I’m grateful that I have never had so many pimples on my skin, pimples usually make you look sickly and unattractive. But there is one problem which I have fought for a long time – dry skin.
I live in a cold arid climate, one of the main reasons why my skin suffers from a lack of moisture. Every day I have to use different kinds of moisturizer cream to get rid of itching sensations and peeling skin. I have been looking for my perfect healing remedy for a very long time. I bought a lot of cosmetic creams of famous brands and used all of them. Of course, I got results, my skin became soft and looked healthy. But the effect of cosmetics disappeared after some time, and I got my dry and peeling the skin back. Why does it happen? Why don’t popular praised creams work? The answer is very simple. Our bodies are susceptible to get a habit of various kinds of chemicals. Have you ever noticed that your favorite nasal drops or some pills stop to affect you? The same thing happens with creams and other cosmetics which we use every day.
Nevertheless, I found the perfect solution to my problem. No, I did not visit a dermatologist. No, I did not have beauty treatment for dry skin. I just started to use natural skincare products. Once, I ran into shelves with a large number of small bottles of essential oils at the pharmacy. It was a gift for me.
Essential oils are unique substances, which have been used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes. It is possible to use it for aromatherapy, personal beauty care, and natural medicine treatments. Essential oil is distilled from steam or water from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils are not oily in spite of using the word “oil.”
There are a lot of different kinds of essential oils, which have healing powers. The essential oil that you choose will depend on your purpose. You can use it to care for your hair and skin, to treat burns and wounds and so on. As you have already understood, I like to use essential oils for dry skincare.

How to use the essential oils for dry skin?
There are many ways to use it, and you can find your favorite one. Remember that you should mix oil with salts or with an emulsifier such as milk or coconut oil. Aromatic bath salts disperse the oils safely into the water, while milk and sesame oil emulsify the essential oil so it is dispersed. Without salts or an emulsifier drops of essential oils will float on the water and then stay directly on the skin. Combining the oils with warm water might be the cause of skin irritation, especially if the oils are a heating nature.
I decided for myself never to use chemicals again. My experience reassures me that humans can get everything, what they need to be healthy, from nature. Since I started to learn natural skincare procedures. I have come to a candid conclusion that it is possible to save our beauty to use only natural remedies. We just should find our perfect natural treatment for each beauty problem.
