A friend recently told me about her struggles with acne and dry skin. We usually associate acne with oily skin, but dry skin can be acne-prone, too. Sometimes acne-fighting treatments are very drying, so replenishing the skin with moisturizer is a must.
In this last part of my clear skin series, I share a recipe for a homemade moisturizing balm. Many moisturizers have a high water content that evaporates quickly once applied. This light moisturizer with all-natural ingredients retains moisture without being heavy on the skin.
Shea butter nourishes the skin and helps to reduce inflammation. Hemp seed oil hydrates without clogging the pores. This oil is similar to the lipids of human skin and therefore penetrates the epidermis deeply. Tamanu oil, a cure-all for many skin problems, is anti-bacterial and helps the regeneration of the skin.
