Dry skin can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include dry environment, frequently washing hands, inadequate hydration, swimming in a chlorinated pool, living in an area with dry climate, or jobs that are rough on the hands such as mechanics or farming.

What skin type do you have?

Many people are unsure what type of skin they have, and this leads to using the wrong products. Which of the below resonates? Don’t forget that you can have combination oily/dry skin, and that dry skin can be normal or also sensitive.

  • Dry – can’t get enough cream? Flaky or rough skin?
  • Oily – if your skin is often greasy-feeling or extra shiny, you likely have oily skin.
  • Combination – a mix of areas that are dry and oily.
  • Normal – no notable problems, and not sensitive to most products.
  • Sensitive – likely reacts to common products, stinging or burning after use.

If the description of dry skin resonates with you, it’s important to keep a few tips in mind.

Choose Products & Ingredients Carefully

Before we get into active skin care tips, all products you use should be organic and fee of toxic ingredients, carefully chosen to avoid worsening dry skin or making it unhappy in general.

Dry skin can handle heavier oils, and indeed often should use them, but there are certain actives and additional ingredients to avoid.

Ingredients to Avoid if You Have Dry Skin

  • Alcohol (except for hand sanitizer)
  • Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA)
  • Fragrance, including deodorant soaps
  • Retinoids
  • Sulfate
  • Paraben
  • Astringents
  • Harsh or too-strong cleansers
  • Anything you’ve found to cause irritation

Fabulous heavier plant oils and strong emollients and humectants can add and help maintain moisture in your skin. In addition, some skin-safe acids are wonderful to alleviate dry skin.

Ingredients to Use if You Have Dry Skin

  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Honey
  • Goat Milk
  • Aloe Vera
  • Glycerin
  • Hyaluronic Acid

Baths and showers

Tempting as it is to linger in a hot bath or shower, this is one of the worst habits for dry skin. Too-hot water dries skin out, leaving dry skin even drier. Try to keep showers only warm, rather than hot, and limit your time in them. Be sure to moisturize skin as soon as you get out, too.

Stay away from hot Jacuzzi!

Use a gentle cleanser

As you might have guessed, dry skin needs only a gentle cleanser. If your skin feels tight immediately after washing and drying your face, the cleanser is probably too drying for your skin type. We recommend using a cleanser meant for dry skin or a cream cleanser to help restore hydration as you remove oils and dirt.

Check out some of great cleansers:

Hydrate!

Whether caused by genetics, temperature changes or chemical irritants, dry skin needs the right skincare products designed to increase the skin-s water-binding capacities and prevent the loss of moisture from the deepest skin layers. Contact your dermatologist if your dry skin conditions persist or appear to worsen, even with treatment.

Moisturizing is a must to keep all skin types looking plump and healthy, and this is particularly true for dry skin. Find a cream that absorbs well and leaves your skin feeling soft for as long as possible. If needed, use something closer to Vaseline for those extra dry spots that need more love. Additionally, consider carrying around a small, non-greasy hand cream to apply after every hand wash. Exposed to hot water, soil and weather extremes, the skin on your hands can easily become overburdened and damaged. Dry and cracked hands are prone to more serious conditions like eczema and dermatitis. So keep them well moisturized, and protect them with gloves in cold weather, when using cleaning products or gardening.

Here are some of our favorite organic moisturizers for dry skin:

Be careful of hot dry heat

Hot dry heat, just like hot showers, tends to dry skin out. In the winter this becomes particularly noticeable as you spend more time in heated buildings without much moisture in the air. Try to avoid sitting too close to the fire, and consider using a humidifier where possible in dry seasons to give your skin a break.

Humidifier therapy adds moisture to the air to prevent dryness that can cause irritation in many parts of the body. Humidifiers can be particularly effective for treating dryness of the skin, nose, throat, and lips. They can also ease some of the symptoms caused by the flu or common cold.

Summary – How to Care for Dry Skin

Dry skin needs low heat and extra moisture, and with a few simple tweaks to your products and routine, you can help skin stay hydrated and happy. We’d love to know how you cater to dry skin and what products your customers are most into. Your skin should start to feel better quickly. If these changes do not bring relief, you may want to see a dermatologist.

You need to adjust your skincare routine to accommodate seasonal changes. What works for your skin in the winter, won’t quite meet your skin’s needs in the summer.

Sun protection remains a constant. Especially in the summer, when the days are longer and the sun’s UV rays are intense, you want to keep your skin hydrated, bright, and protected.

You should include these skincare basics in your routine: cleanser, toner, serum, moisturizer, and sunscreenEvery day if you will be outside. The sun emits harmful UV rays year-round. Even on cloudy days, up to 80 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin. Your goal is to nourish the skin and protect it from UV rays, without clogging the pores and exacerbating its naturally oily film.

1. Cleanser Tips for Summer Skincare

For most people, summer probably means lots of sweating. And lots of sweating means an increased chance of clogged pores. When the skin is moist from sweat, it’s a magnet for dirt and debris. As dirt, pollutants and random particles stick to your face, they can clog your pores, which creates acne breakouts.

Cleanser Tip: Using a gentle cleanser is key in the summer.

Harsh cleansers that strip the skin barrier should be avoided entirely. Don’t deprive your skin of its natural defense mechanism. Your gentle cleanser should be kind to your skin, but proactive in cleansing the impurities from your skin.

Maintaining the skin’s natural barrier during the heat of the summer is essential for protecting the skin from the sun’s long-lasting UV rays. You want to choose a cleanser that goes below the surface of the skin to remove dirt, debris and residual sunscreen from the pores, without stripping the skin of its natural oils, are prime. 

The heat and humidity trigger sebum production in the skin, which means increased oil production. Increased oil production means increased risk of clogged pores, and we all know what clogged pores lead to… unsightly acne breakouts. 

When it comes to exfoliation, we’ll recommend chemical exfoliants over physical exfoliants in any season. Chemical exfoliants, like BHAs (salicylic acid) and AHAs (glycolic acid), exfoliate the skin on a cellular level. These exfoliants work by breaking down the sugars in the skin to loosen the dead skin cells on the surface. This forces the dead skin cells to shed and new skin cells to generate. 

Use exfoliants only at night, a few nights a week (give or take a night depending on your skin’s sensitivity) and plan to use them a few days before you’ll be in the sun for an extended period of time. Don’t exfoliate the night before you head to the beach.

2. Toner Tips for Summer Skincare

Yes, toner is a must! The right toner will work alongside your skin’s natural composition to balance your skin’s pH levels. Skin pH levels have everything to do with oily skin, dry skin, and every skin type in between. 

The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 considered “neutral.” The lower numbers are acidic, while the upper levels are considered alkaline, or nonacidic.

You might be surprised to learn that a healthy skin pH is more on the acidic side. With more acidity, your skin can combat harmful microbes and damaging free radicals that might increase the aging process.

Stay away from toners with alcohol! It’s a common belief that toners with alcohol are an essential step to killing acne-causing bacteria, but it’s also a double-edged sword. Though alcohol does fight bacteria, it also strips the skin of moisture. Alcohol also strips the skin of its natural, protective oils. Just like over-exfoliating, toning the skin with alcohol can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. Toners are critical after the double cleanse because they remove any impurities your cleansers didn’t catch.

If skin is not at a balanced pH level, it becomes prone to the cycle of excessive dryness followed by too much oil production, and even environmental damage.

Toners facilitate active ingredient penetration from your other skin care products. Think of it as a booster for your vitamin C, retinol, or expensive anti-aging creams.

Aloe vera is natural, antibacterial, and antimicrobial. Using a toner with aloe vera is basically a double-cleanse for your face. Especially in the summer, antibacterial properties in your skincare ingredients are essential for maintaining a fresh, gunk-free complexion. Aloe is also anti-inflammatory, so it can effectively dull any sun-induced redness or irritation on your face. 

I’m Fabulous cosmetics toners have aloe vera as a main ingredient instead or water, zero alcohol and loaded with active raw plant-based ingredients.

Tea tree oil, like our other two toner ingredient must-haves, is a natural ingredient with powerful skincare benefits. This agent is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, and has tons of different uses for the body. Tea tree oil is used to clean wounds, to treat psoriasis and eczema, to treat oily skin, itchy skin, dry skin—the list goes on. Toners with tea tree oil will penetrate deep into the pores to kill bacteria at the source.

3. Serum Tips for Summer Skincare

Serums with antioxidants are one of the best ways to nourish and revitalize the skin year-round. Serums are potent, brightening, hydrating, and refreshing. Providing your skin with antioxidants is like giving your skin the gift of vitality. Serums are great!

All forms of sun damage and over exposure to the sun (like hyperpigmentation, dark circles, dull skin, dark spots, wrinkles, and enlarged pores) can be treated with a vitamin C serum. That’s because vitamin C is a miraculous antioxidant. Antioxidants transform the skin on a cellular level, by neutralizing free radicals

Vitamin C should be at the top of your summer skincare list—right beside sunscreen.

4. Moisturizer and Sunscreen Tips for Summer Skincare

Thick moisturizers can leave your skin feeling oily, sticky, and acne-inflamed when the humidity and heat are high in the summer. Choosing moisturizers with hyaluronic acid and peptides, specifically, can hydrate your skin throughout the summer without leaving a film of un-absorbed product on your face. Hyaluronic acid increases the skin’s resilience, increases collagen production, and increases the rate of cellular turnover. Peptides fight fine lines and wrinkles.

Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, or combination skin, your skincare routine needs some modifications throughout the seasons if you want your best skin to come.

Sunscreen use can help prevent skin cancer by protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of age, gender or race. In fact, it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.


The American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone use sunscreen that offers the following:

  • Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays)
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Water resistance

Did you know that most skincare products contains 80-95% Water! Which requires additional chemical thickeners and more preservatives that don’t benefit your skin. Moreover, such a high level of water can be drying to skin.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics replace ordinary water with plants based ingredients like aloe vera and oils… our proprietary, skin-loving, four times boosted aloe-activated elixir, created from natural, sustainable aloe plants. It definitely calms, soothes, and hydrates skin. I’m Fabulous Cosmetics pair the aloe vera with potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid and plant-based collagen and peptides.

The natural components of aloe contain vitamins and minerals that your skin needs and unfortunately cannot get from other ingredients that you more commonly find in your skincare products.

Anyone can use aloe vera?

Yes! Dry, Oily, Combination, Sensitive, Damaged Skin, even those with conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema.

Your skin becomes oily when there is a lack of hydration in layers of the skin invisible to the eye. This causes your skin to over produce oils to compensate for the lack-thereof.  Aloe vera is quick absorbing, which prevents clogging of the pores. Applying aloe to the skin is like drenching your pores with the most natural feeling, meant-to-be hydration. Because even if you live in an area like Miami where it is hot and humid you need to hydrate your skin.

In addition to anti-inflammatory properties, there are antibacterial and antioxidant properties of aloe vera that make it effective as a topical treatment for acne.  Aloe vera also assists in the production of collagen in the skin, which is a protein that our bodies produce less and less over time. Aloe vera natural antibacterial properties keep the area clean, and the antioxidants help reduce scar formation and promote quicker healing.

Acne happens when a pore gets clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It can affect people of all ages. But there are treatments that can help. The trick is finding what works best for you.

Yes, you can treat acne without harsh skincare products or medication.  It can take weeks to see results from any medication. Your acne may look worse before it gets better.

Most home remedies must be made fresh each morning and night because the ingredients lose potency in the open air, meaning you’ll have to dedicate extra time and energy to squeezing lemons or brewing green tea every time you go to do your skincare routine. Unless you are seriously dedicated, odds are you’ll end up skipping your skincare routine several times a week if you have to devote this much time and energy to it. Acne systems, on the other hand, are ready and waiting in their bottles and only require you to take the time to apply them. Plus, most acne systems combine tons of amazing ingredients into just three simple steps, so you can get the benefit of several natural ingredients in seconds.

Stacy Brown, a medical licensed esthetician in Beverly Hills, uses I’m Fabulous Cosmetics products in her spa; recommend this at-home skincare regimen on her clients with acne, large pores, and blackheads:

Water in skincare formula demands the use of harsh preservatives. Water encourages the growth of harmful bacteria, and skincare products with a high concentration of water also require a high concentration of preservatives.

Are preservatives bad for your skin? While some skincare products preservatives are more toxic than others, no preservatives are good for us and ideally it is best to avoid them by purchasing skincare formulations that do not require preservatives. The campaign for safe cosmetics can be view at safecosmetics.org

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics adore using pure cold-pressed plant oils for our daily beauty + skincare rituals. Not only do oils make your skin silky smooth but they have a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and antioxidants to assist cells in being toned, maintaining elasticity and retaining moisture. Most Lotions and creams commercially produced have water as the main ingredient.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics approach to waterless beauty is based on offering effective products that aren’t diluted with tons of water, an inactive and a bacteria-breeding ingredient.

Aloe Vera is the liquid base for our products, not water! Did you know that 88% to 90% of most skincare products is water?  Did you know that your skin is basically water-proof?  That is why you don’t soak up all the water in the bathtub or the swimming pool. 


Your skin is more lipophilic (oil-loving) rather than hydrophilic (water-loving).
Please read the skincare product label, and if the first ingredient is water, this will be a sign that most of this product is not beneficial to your skin.  Also, if the remaining ingredients are composed of synthetic chemicals, it is easy to see why many products you have used in the past have done little to improve your skin.

Aloe Vera is a powerful nutrient, a complex combination of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and moisturizing polysaccharides. Scientists are still trying to discover how this combination of phyto-chemicals are capable of trans-epidermal penetration and transportation. Many topical medicines are now formulated with an aloe vera base to ensure penetration for medicinal performance.

Aloe vera can fight acne, prevent dark spots, and even slow down the signs of aging.
Skincare products without water are best because they can be made with toxic preservatives, that will enter your bloodstream.

What do enzymes do for your face? While there are many types of enzymes, they have two primary uses in skincare for exfoliation and anti-inflammation. … The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells containing keratin protein. The enzymes work by specifically breaking down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin.

To get rid of a sunburn fast, take a cool shower or bath to cool your skin, but avoid using soap, which can dry out your sunburn. Afterward, let yourself air-dry, since using a towel may cause discomfort. Apply an aloe vera gel or a deep moisturizer at least twice daily to reduce dryness and peeling.

Avoid petroleum-based or other oil-based creams as these may trap heat and make your sunburn and peeling even worse. Try to moisturize right after you bathe, when your skin is still damp, to help seal in moisture. Buy now: Shop for aloe vera, cortisone cream, or aspirin.

How to Remove Peeling Skin From a Sunburn

If you’ve spent any time out in the sun, there’s a good chance you’ve been cooked by the rays beating down on you. Even a short exposure to the sun, while your skin is unprotected, can lead to a painful and irritating burn. Knowing how to properly care for sunburn can help minimize the discomfort and speed up the healing process.

How to Remove Peeling Skin

Taking care of your skin after a sunburn requires patience and time. As tempting as it may be to rip the hanging skin off before you head out to work, it’s important to allow the skin to fall off on its own.

Improperly removed sunburned skin can lead to further irritation, scarring, and infection. You can properly remove peeling skin from sunburn if you take it slow and follow certain steps.

For added relief, mix baking soda into your bath water, which has been shown to help relieve inflammation and itching.

Soak in a soothing oatmeal

Another option: Add oatmeal and olive or coconut oil to your bath. Colloidal oatmeal helps tamp down inflammation and reduces itching, and you can find the ingredient in I’m Fabulous Skin Care products, like their soothing bath treatment. You can also simply grind up plain oats in your food processor and add to your tub. Mix the oatmeal treatment with cool bath water and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Afterward, gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Rubbing your skin to dry off will only irritate it further.

Ice-cold water is great. Pour water and ice into a bowl, soak a cloth in the liquid, and place it over the burn. Repeat this process every few minutes as the cloth warms. Apply the compress several times a day for 10 to 15 minutes.

Apply a skin care oil with natural organic healing ingredients like Blue Tanzy and Hemp oil.

 

 

The Secret to Glowing Skin is Organic

Statistics released in 2017 concluded that the global organic market value was worth $11.5 billion and is expected to expand at a rate of 11.1% over the course of 2018 to 2026. It seems the ‘less is more’ camp is steadily gaining momentum, with more people than ever before opting for natural products over chemical cosmetics for their skin. Food has increasingly become a part of skin care with things like the use of avocado as a face mask, application of aloe vera to clear blemishes and even the drinking of green tea to decrease sebum in the skin and reduce inflammation levels.

Why You Should Consider Going Natural

Opting to use natural skin care products may be the gift you can give to your skin. Basically, natural and organic products have no added synthetic compounds mixed into them. This gives you a number of benefits, the first being the fragrance. The scent of natural products is different from artificially created scents. For instance, if you use natural rose cream, manufacturers use actual rose petals to make the natural product so the scent it will have will be authentic. Natural products will also make your skin softer as they lack the drying agents added to chemical products. Because of all these advantages and the growing interest in natural skin care, it is predicted that 2019 will see significant growth in this sector. There will be increased use of elderberries and red radishes to color cosmetics for instance.

The Use of Activated Charcoal

When most of us think of charcoal, we associate it with burning wood and fire. However, in the field of natural beauty, activated charcoal is one of the top rated natural supplements. After obtaining charcoal by burning a mass of carbon, it can be activated by being placed in a furnace and passing oxygen or steam through it. The use of activated charcoal is widespread, most notably as a teeth whitener with many toothpaste manufacturers now including charcoal in their products. It can also be used in a face mask and functions to bind oil and dirt to the mask which helps clear pimples. In this way, it cleans our pores of the toxins and pollutants that affect our complexion.

Going Natural is Also Going Plastic-Free

Perhaps one of the greatest impacts the natural beauty trend will have will be the push against the use of plastic to package cosmetics. This has been driven by the statistics showing that 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans every day. More and more people are trying to bring this number down by opting to eliminate plastics from their skincare routine. This will see the increased production of biodegradable packaging and refillable containers.

As we try to remove toxins from our bodies and reduce our carbon footprint by producing less synthetic products, the trend towards natural beauty and skin care is only expected to gain momentum.
