Dry and dehydrated skin can leave us looking pale, older and unhealthy as well as having physical symptoms of itchiness, cracking, redness, enlarged pores, discolouration and poor healing. It is vital for radient skin to have a good balance of water and oil. It is water that keeps our skin cells plump and youthfull looking, whilst oil protects our skin and reduces evaporation of water from our cells.

Water enters the skin from the blood streem so the most important factor to healthy skin is drinking plenty of water and eating a clean diet full of fresh vegetables. Important nutrtients for healthy skin include Vitamin A (found in yellow and orange vegetables) Zinc (found in nuts, seeds and shellfish) Vitamin C (kiwi fruit, red capsicum and broccoli) Anti-oxidants (berries, raw foods, red and purple vegetables and fruits) Sulphur (onions, garlic, eggs) and Omega 3, 6 & 9 (fish, nuts, seeds, coconut)

Avoiding Alcohol, caffeine, smoking, sugary foods and fried fats will also go a long way in maintaining youthfull looking skin as will staying protected from the elements such as sun and wind.

When choosing beauty products a facial oil may be better for dry skin. Rose Hip oil is well absorbed and high in Vitamin A, C & E. Jojoba Oil is very well absorbed into the skin and is very nourishing as well as high in antioxidants. Here at Evelyn Faye we have a range of facial oils which are natural and organic. You should also avoid using soaps and washes with foaming agents. MooGoo is a range of skin products which specifically target dry and irritated skin, we are forever getting fantastic feedback from customers who use this range.

For anyone coming into the store with dry and irritated skin with no known cause I would suggest they supplement with the following:

*Ethical Nutrients High strength Liquid Fish Oil - 1tsp per day

*Planet health Silicea- 1tbs per day

*Natural Vitamin E 500IU per day

Then suggest the following beauty products:

*MooGoo Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash

*Jojoba Oil or Coconut Oil for the body

*Aum Rose Hip Oil for the face

And Increase through the diet:

*Fresh brightly coloured fruit and vegetables.

*Fish, Raw nuts and seeds


*Protein sources such as lean meats, wholegrains and tofu
