How To Cure Dry Skin? | Skin Care Tips & Remedies

maple holistics liz breygel beauty skin care lifestyle blogger

With the sudden weather and temperature change my skin tends to suffer from dehydration, dullness and mild irritations. Sometimes the situation can get even worse after a hot shower and a usage of shower gels and cleansing products on a daily basis. The only thing that seems to fix the problem and revitalize the skin is a special skin care routine for dry skin. Today I wanted to share with you some simple tips and remedies, that help me to keep my skin healthy and hydrated.

Change Your Routine

First of all you need to find a reason why your skin suffers from dehydration. Harsh water, soaps, drying facial cleansers can cause dry and itchy skin. Are you drinking enough water? The health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters of fresh and clean water per day. Keeping the water balance is essential for glowing skin and don`t forget about healthy diet. Feed your skin with a diet that includes dark chocolate, salmon, and other fatty fish, oranges, mangoes, and carrots.

UV Protection


Dry and damaged skin can`t protect itself from from the harmful effects of UV rays. Do not forget to get a nice sunscreen, that will gently care about your skin, ensuring long-lasting and strong protection from the sun. Ever heard about all natural sunscreen? I was shocked when I found out that a sunscreen can contain only natural ingredients and still prevent sunburns and skin damage. For instance Natural Sunscreen by Maple Holistics contains only Aloe, Cocoa Butter and water, but does it`s job perfectly!

Natural Oils

For the best result try to apply a generous amount of natural oil on your skin right after the bath or shower. Don`t dry the skin with a towel, but instead apply an oil directly on a wet skin. Applying natural oils creates a special seal that prevents moisture and vitamins from escaping. Natural oils, including almond, coconut, avocado and jojoba not only help your skin to stay hydrated, but also nourish it with a huge amount of vitamins.

For the days when my skin feels especially dry and dull I like to use a Pure Apricot Oil* by Maple Holistics. Apricot Oil is one of the best remedies that helps to cure dry skin. It is rich with Antioxidants, Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Vitamins A,B,C & E - essentials elements for a helthy and smooth skin. Apricot Oil (also called apricot kernel oil) is a very thin and lightweight product, that`s why it absorbs deeply into the skin, nourishing it from the inside. Unlike other oils I`ve used before, Pure Apricot Oil by Maple Holistics does not clog my skin and does not live greasy residue. It has no additives and a special cold-press extraction method allows for more vitamins and minerals to remain in the final product. Paula Begoun, an author of a famous best seller “The Complete Beauty Bible,” mentions in her book that a pure apricot oil has a lipid content very similar to our skin. That`s why when the skin is dry, itchy and irritated, apricot kernel oil helps to reestablish lipid amount, healing and soothing the skin.

Exfoliate

Dehydrated skin tends to get sore, tight and patchy. Even though exfoliation can be uncomfortable at this period, it is very important to find a mild exfoliator that will remove dry patches and revitalize the skin. There are plenty of skin scrubs on a beauty market, but you can also find good remedies right at your kitchen or local grocery store. Add a little bit of a fine oat meal to your Greek yogurt or avocado and you good to go! Yogurt will gently cleanse the skin with a help of lactic acid and avocado will moisturize it.

Winter is here! The most exciting and festive season of a year will bring us a whole bunch of sweet holidays together with three cold and long months. This also means that now it is a perfect time to chance your regular skin care routine a little bit. The freezing temperatures and low humidity leave our skin dry and flaky, so the most important thing during the cold winter month is to keep our skin nourished and moisturized. Today I want to show you some of my favorite skin care helpers, that keep my skin healthy, hydrated and cozy at winter.


Though my skin is pretty dry, I always cleanse my skin with a face cleanser before bed. My favorite face wash at the moment is Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel (or simply Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel).  The cleanser was developed for normal and combined skin types but it is good enough for sensitive skin as well, because it is very gentle and doesn`t dry the skin. I still like to apply some moisturizing cream after I wash my face. Frequent bathing and cleaning can wash out all the essential natural oils off your skin, so try to limit your bath time and don`t forget to hydrate your skin after the shower.


Winter is not a time when you can skip moisturizer, it is very important to have a good hydrating cream, which will protect your skin and restore the skin cells. But I`m not a big fan of a rich and heavy face moisturizers, I prefer to use something lighter. Cell Renew Hydro-Plus Overnight Moisturizer by Stemology perfectly fits my dry skin time, it has a very lightweight formula and consistency of a melted honey. This moisturizer is made of all natural ingredients, they help to restore and hydrate the skin overnight and keep it healthy and glowing throughout the whole winter time.


This product has a very special place on my beauty shelf and in my heart as well. This is an anti - aging serum and it was specially developed to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations and other skin problems, which occur with age. The key ingredient of the serum is Vitamin C helps to boost up natural collagen production and it serves as a shield, saving our skin from damaging free radicals and severe winter weather. I like to use this serum everyday on a freshly cleaned skin, before applying my makeup, it helps to prime my face and seal in the moisture. The serum is water based, so it absorbes in no time, leaving the skin soft and healthy.


The next product I would like to recommend is a Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, because our lips also need a very special treatment at winter. You can use this lip mask overnight or apply it during the day, if your lips need some extra hydration. The Laneige mask contains an special Berry Mix Complex - a mixture between raspberry, strawberry, cranberry and blueberry extracts rich with vitamin C, these ingredients help to remove the dead flaky skin cells of the skin during the night and the nest morning lips feel super soft and plump. Use this mask on a daily basis for the best result and stop licking your lips in the cold! This naughty habit will make your lips even more chapped and dry.

Skin Masks

The last few products I want to talk about is  facial masks. Usually I rarely use facial masks at summer, because I don`t want to over nourish the skin and clog the pores on my face, but winter is the time when I like to treat my skin with some extra attention. The Tony Moly `I’m Real Face Mask` Skin Purifying Mask and Garnier Hydra Bomb are my current favorite masks, I also like using Balea skin masks, because they perfectly fit my dry skin type. For the blackheads, which live on my nose and cheek area I use Tosowoong Blackhead & Sebum Out Nose Packs, the main ingredient of this packs is charcoal and it helps to remove dirt and grease of the pores and minimizes their appearance on the skin.

That`s all for my Winter Skin Care Routine post, now you know all the secrets to keep your skin healthy and beautiful this winter, I hope some of you will find this post useful and interesting. Drink plenty of water and don`t forget to stay warm and cozy this winter.

And what are your favorite winter skin care products?

Maple Holistics Vitamin C Serum for Face | Review

Recently I was given an awesome chance to try out Vitamin C Serum for Face* by Maple Holistics. This is an anti - aging serum and it was developed to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations and other skin problems, which occur with age. I was very excited see this serum in action, especially after I saw the list of the it`s ingredients, just check it out girls : water, Vitamin C, vegetable glycerin, Hyaluronic acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, Vitamin E Acetate and many others natural acids and extracts. Sound like a magic `Eternal Youth Potion` in a little glass bottle!

The bottle of  Maple Holistics Serum has a comfortable dropper tip, so you can measure the quantity of the product you need at a time without any problem and add some more later, if needed. I recommend to store the serum in a cool dark place, so the harmful UV lights will not reach and spoil your `potion`. 

The star ingredient of the Maple Holistics Serum is Vitamin C ( or L-ascorbic acid), it can treat multiple skin care concerns, helps to boost natural collagen production and provides potent antioxidant protection, it serves as a shield saving our skin from damaging free radicals. Other important ingredient of this product is Hyaluronic acid - well -known and very important component of our skin`s cells. Today, Hyaluronic acid is considered equally important, or maybe even more important, than Collagen. It keeps our skin young looking and  removes waste matter from cells. By the way, this serum contains properties to provide light protection from the sun, so you can use it as a part of your morning routine.

Vitamin C Serum for Face has a very light scent of glycerin and a little bit oily, but very light consistency, like if big amount of water was mixed with sunflower or olive oil. After you apply it on the skin it absorbs very quickly, and skin begins to feel a little bit tacky, like if you would put a sweet water and let it dry. I apply it right before I go to sleep, to avoid the feeling :)

I will be honest with you, I loved to use Maple Holistics Serum, unfortunately to see some drastic results I need to give it more time. But I already see that my skin looks smoother and fresher. Vitamin C Serum for Face retails at $11.77 and you can order it on official Maple Holistics website. Thank you to read my review, I really hope it was helpful for you!

And what is your favorite skin serum?
Lots of love,

Hi my angels! I`m such a big fan of all natural skin care products, but my all time favorite is a clay mask. I just love the texture and calming effect natural clay has on my skin. And today I`m glad to introduce you to the Maple Holistics Natural Ancient Clay Mask*, which were made of three different clays, each with it`s own therapeutic benefits for any skin type. 

Ancient Clay Mask comes in simple plastic container, which has 8 oz. (about 226 gr.) of a product. You will also receive a couple of plastic spoons, to measure out the proportions of the clay and water. The list of ingredients is simple, but awesome: French green clay - great for dry skin, helps cell regeneration and removes impurities; Bentonite clay - perfect for oily skin, helps to exfoliate dead skin; Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) - Fuller’s Earth forms as a result of pure decomposed volcanic ash, this clay helps to nourish the skin. Wet clay has a fresh scent of wild flowers, that grow in a field and a river water. I love this fragrance, it reminded me of my childhood :)

Before the application it is better to remove the makeup and clean your face. Mix 1 scoop of clay with 2 scoops of clean water, the consistency should be smooth and a little bit `soupy`. Apply the generous coat of the mask on the face and neck, avoiding sensitive areas. In 10 - 15 minutes, after the clay will dry out, you can rinse your skin with warm water.

Maple Holistics Ancient Clay Mask is awesome product, my skin felt to smooth and fresh after the first usage. This mask helps to dry out the pimples, calms skin irritations and softly exfoliates the skin. Natural Ancient Clay Mask is available on the official Maple Holistics website and retails at $15.99.  All of their products are 100 % natural and vegan - friendly.
