Keeping Skin Supple Naturally

We are dealing with dry skin in our house because of the heat always being on and the dry air of winter. Winter is just harsh on our skin, and nobody wants to have dry chapped skin, so here are some natural ways to keep your skin supple and smooth.

Remember, your skin is your largest organ. What you put on it is going to be absorbed into your bloodstream! That is why it is important to put only vitamin rich, safe ingredients like these below on your skin.

Strawberry-Yogurt Mask

  • Cut up some organic strawberries (for us northerers, you can use frozen strawberries) and blend them together with a touch of yogurt to create an all-natural, anti-aging, nutritious facial mask.

Olive Oil

  • I have been putting organic olive oil on my newborn little girl since she was born. You can apply it directly to parched lips or rough, dry patches of skin to help hydrate and soothe. You can also try coconut oil. I am going to be posting more about coconut oil in a few weeks.

Pomegranate Seeds and Oatmeal Scrub

  • Pomegranates are full of powerful inflammation-fighting anti-oxidants. But, you can also use the seeds, combined with some oatmeal in a food processor, as an anti-aging exfoliating scrub.

Green Tea

  • Green Tea contains tannins, which act as an astringent and can be applied directly to the skin. Use damp, chilled tea bags and it will help reduce eye puffiness.


  1. I use almond oil and coconut oil for moisturizer daily. They are both great. Coconut oil is terrific for travel too- I just put some in a tin and it stays fairly solid. :)

  2. I love the idea of the tea bags for puffiness. I definitely need to try 'wake up' my eyes.

    Did you know the peel of an orange can also be a great face cleaner? I learned that while hiking through the desert.

  3. Thanks for the great 'recipes.' I love doing masks for my skin when I get to be home alone. My poor dogs don't care much for it though. Lol.


  4. Thank you for the wonderful tips. I use jojoba oil for my skin a lot during the winter, especially my scalp which gets really dry. It works wonders on the rest of the body too. Coconut oil is wonderful for so many different uses and it smells divine, doesn't it? :)

  5. Oh my gosh, that strawberry yogurt mask sounds DIVINE!! I can't wait to try it.:-)

  6. great ideas! I also think the strawberry yogurt mask sounds yummy! I probably would want to snack on some of it!

  7. I've been using coconut oil and it is great. I just mixed it with shea butter and I love the combo, now I want to try an essential oil with it.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. Your thoughts and tips are what make this blog shine!
