After a long day of work, socializing, or even lounging around, your skin probably feels a little itchy and dry. This can be especially true when you’re washing your hair every day or if you’re constantly exposed to the elements. However, the good news is that you don’t have to sacrifice your quality of life to stay comfortable! There are plenty of inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients to help soothe your skin and bring some much-needed moisture back to it.
This Itch Relief Moisturizing Cream is a cream that soothes dry skin and relieves itching. It can be used as a stand-alone product or base for your homemade oils and creams.
Ingredients and How to Use
This cream is made from just a few ingredients, some of which are vegan and some aren’t.
Here’s what you need:
Coconut oil. This ingredient is used as the base for the entire cream. It has healing properties that help keep your skin hydrated and supple. You can buy coconut oil in most grocery stores or independent health food stores. However, it can be worth it to purchase extra-virgin coconut oil if you intend to use this product on your hair since that type of coconut oil tends to be more moisturizing than other types of coconut oils. And since you’re using it on your skin, you should probably make sure that the type you use has been processed in a way where its natural oils haven’t been extracted (removed) before being packaged for sale in stores (as opposed to being pulled after it was already packaged). Extra-virgin coconut oil works very well in this product because its natural fat content is enough to help moisturize and heal dry skin, but not so much that it would cause breakouts or clog pores. When using the cream on your arms or legs, regular old coconut oil (or other unprocessed oils like grapeseed, etc..…) works just fine.
