Which Hydrator should you use for your skin

Who doesn't want the look of supple, well taken care of hydrated and glowing skin? There are two parts to keeping your skin healthy, dry skin lacks sebum, causing it to appear patchy, flaky, or feel rough and tight. Thicker moisturizers, such as our Every Balm can nourish, smooth, and soften dry skin.
Dehydrated skin lacks water, causing it to appear dull. Humectants such as the sunflower oil in our Botanical Massage Body Oil can provide moisture replenishment to dehydrated skin.

Whether the skin is dry or dehydrated will determine if an emollient, humectant-based formulation or both is best. 
Seasonal and dietary changes will also change the needs of your skin.  We recommend using either the Every Balm, the Botanical Body Oil or a mixture of both as needed.
