Natural Remedies for Winter Skin With Farmview


Winter is coming. And, with it, comes dry, flaky, itchy skin. Wintertime can be a nightmare for your skin because of a variety of sources. Everything from hot showers, to wool sweaters, and winter winds can cause your skin to become dry. And, if you’re a sufferer of eczema and psoriasis, you are all too familiar with how uncomfortable winter skin is.

natural-beauty-spaNever fear, because Farmview is here! We have many natural remedies that you can use to battle the winter blues. Plus, each item is chock full of essential oils and natural emollients (that’s a fancy word for “soothing”) that pamper while they patch up your skin. Remember, if you haven’t experimented with any of these listed ingredients or if you have skin allergies, it’s always best to consult your dermatologist or do a patch test on your forearm. A patch test is simply applying the product to an area on your forearm, so you can check if any burning or itching occur.

First up is the gold standard of winter skin care; oatmeal. Remember when you had chickenpox as a child and you bathed in an oatmeal bath? It’s because oatmeal is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Oatmeal can also add essential moisture to your parched and flaky skin. Our favorite product is Cheeky Maiden’s Oatmeal and Lavender soap; a delicious blend of relaxing lavender and oatmeal that soothes and smells divine! Speaking of the Maiden, we can’t get enough of her incredible line of all natural beauty products. She has everything from lotion sticks that are made with Argan and coconut oil, to laundry detergent that is safe for every skin type.

Oatmeal may be the gold standard, but did you know that essential oils can also cure your skin woes? We mentioned Argan and coconut oils which, when applied alone, are incredibly moisturizing. In fact, you can use coconut oil on your scalp and your skin. Essential oils are amazing for your beauty routine. Try adding Tea Tree oil to your face wash or Rosemary oil when you shampoo. Tea Tree is a tireless emollient that will make your skin sing! We recommend washing your face and then using tea tree oil as a nighttime facial cream. And, rosemary can help get rid of winter dandruff by helping your scalp maintain its moisture. Farmview has an incredible selection of essential oils that you can use to combat every type of winter skin ailment.

grocery-82-1You can’t forget about goat’s milk! Goat’s milk is an extremely nourishing ingredients and, when combined with ingredients like oatmeal, help soothe skin issues. It’s also incredibly helpful for sufferers of psoriasis. Goat’s milk is loaded with amazing vitamins, like vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C and E, minerals, amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, natural enzymes, and a variety of other nutrients that nourish and revitalize dehydrated skin. While it won’t prevent an outbreak, goat’s milk soap can heal your psoriasis quickly and you won’t have to worry about harsh additives. Most of our all-natural soaps are made using goat’s milk as a base. We also have a goat’s milk and oatmeal bath soak that’s fit for the queen (or king) you are!
