I didn't quite realize how common the issue of extremely dry skin was until I moved from a more or less all year temperate climate in India to the cold east end of New York and now Poland. Yes, I said Poland and this country deserves to be written about. But that for another time.
At first I was shocked to see an entire aisle of products catered to treating eczema and psoriasis, something I thought was rare and had to quickly quash all previous notions I held about skin.
On the surface, the most obvious factor that directly plays into how quickly your skin will dry out, is the weather. Regions that go through weather cycles and have 'real' winters, the cold quickly works its way into drying out the skin, sucking out all the moisture.
The other factor, which I think isn't too obvious and the one that is most often overlooked is our work or home environments that are climate controlled, no matter the geographic location.
When you work in a climate controlled environment, typically an office with the air conditioning on all day, your skin starts to gradually dehydrate and is eventually sapped of all the moisture. This can leave your skin feeling itchy, scaly and in certain cases, visible crack formations are noticeable on the surface of the skin.
At this point, your body is yelling at you to get in more green leafy foods, a lot of water. And your skin needs a natural non toxic hydrating oil that works from within.
Your skin is limp and undernourished. Exposing it to harsh ingredients, names that you can't pronounce or know the origin of, can work to further aggravate and worsen your skin condition.
In the case that you continue to treat your skin with harsh chemicals or avoid treating it altogether, this could lead to a more permanent condition of skin dryness.
I highly recommend Moringa Oil for treating dry skin related issues, to family and friends. First, because I'm biased and second because I know it works. But not just Moringa, you have to take a more holistic approach to skin and that is your lifestyle choices. The food you eat, how much water you drink, the amount of sleep you get in and the exercise that you do. If you aren't tackling your skin issues from a more holistic point of view, any result will only be fleeting, thus temporary.
Moringa Oil is single ingredient, with a zero comedogenic rating. This means, it doesn't clog pores and works from within. Packed with naturally occurring vitamins, anti-oxidants and nutrients, Moringa Oil helps work into the folds of the skin, hydrating and nourishing it.
