How to Naturally Prevent Dry Skin and Hair

Prevention is an essential ingredient in living a long and healthy life. 


When we prevent aches and ailments by treating our body’s with care, then we not only save money down the line, but we actually live better and most of the time, longer. Our skin and hair need constant attention and TLC, daily, to stay healthy and beautiful. Instead of waiting until your hair or skin dries out and you spend days or weeks trying to cure the symptoms, how about starting today, by preventing these potentially stressful and discomferting situations?


In this article we’ll explore 6 ways to prevent dry skin and hair. Now, let’s get to it!


Avoid Burning Hot Showers 

Really. We know how tempting it is to constantly raise that heat. But you're not doing your skin and hair any favors with all that burn. The hotter the temperature, the more oil and moisture it will strip from your skin and hair. And guess what? The worst isn’t over. The longer you shower, the more oil and moisture your stripping from your skin and hair. Yikes. What you once thought was a small pleasure in life, has now just become a guilty pleasure. But is it worth it? Well, that's really up for you to decide. But don’t say we didn't warn you. Especially if you're prone to dry scalp and dandruff....


Moisturize Daily

Moisturizes are, yes, you guessed it, designed to keep the skin and hair moisturized. A natural moisturizer will safely hydrate your skin and hair without adding any dirty chemicals or false promises. A good moisturizer is usually made up of a humectant (which attracts moisture), something to seal in the moisture and something which smooths the skin. A safe and effective (and delicious) moisturizer is one that you can use in your hair and on your skin, because well, they’re pretty much made of the same ‘material.’  


Drink More Water

If you’ve been keeping up with our blog posts, then you already know how much we value water. Drink more water. Even if you think you drink a lot of water, drink more of it. Water is so good for you, both inside and out. Drinking more clean water not only prevents the hair and skin from drying out but it can aid in weight loss, improves digestion, brain function, blood flow, and boy does the list go on!


If you live in an area where the tap water is safe to drink, then you really have no excuses. Drink more water. Add mint leaves, lemon juice, lime juice, cucumber, strawberries to your water to ‘spice things up a bit,’ or drink a lot of herbal tea. You will experience an overall improvement in your sleep, your ability to concentrate and smoother skin and hair. 


Water Filter

While we’re discussing water, we do want to encourage you to get yourself a water filter if you live in an area with hard water. Hard water will dry out your skin and hair. It’s as simple as that. You don't have to spend thousands of dollars by installing a water filter system into your home (well you can, but you don't have to), you can just add a water filter to your showerhead and change it once a year. A water filter might just be one of the easiest ways to improve skin and hair. We also recommend filtering your drinking water. This way you can take your filtered water on-the-go, in a BPA free or stainless steel water bottle. 


Diet

As always, what you eat affects your skin and hair. In truth, what you eat affects a whole lot more than just your skin and hair, but for now we’ll stay focused on skin and hair. 


When we provide our body with a balanced diet of vitamins and minerals, our hair and skin have what they need to live and look clean and healthy. When we don’t eat a well balanced diet of fruit, seeds, vegetables, nuts, fish, etc. then our hair and skin are the first to let us know. 


Our gut has a direct line to the skin on our face. When we eat processed foods, or foods high in sugar, we strip our gut of healthy bacteria. When that healthy bacteria is lacking, our gut usually sends a message to our cheeks that it’s irritated. And when we’re deficient in important vitamins and minerals like biotin, iron, zinc, vitamin A, E, D, C, Bs, and so on, our skin and hair lose priority in our body’s system. And the vitamins we do eat and absorb go to our essential organs, and sometimes never make it to our skin and hair. Leaving our skin and hair dry and lackluster. 


Relax and Enjoy

Many of us live pretty hectic and stressful lives. But we do need to learn to take time for ourselves, to unwind and relax. A stressful lifestyle will impact our overall quality of life and health. Stress can cause the skin to break out and the hair to thin and fall out. When we’re stressed, we overwork our bodies and the nutrients we need to keep our skin and hair healthy get consumed and burned by the energy stress costs us. It’s a little bit more complex than that, but we think you get the picture. We know life can be very demanding, but don’t forget to stay grounded and calm. You, your work, and everyone around you will benefit so much more. And of course, so will your skin and hair! 


What are some preventative measures you take to stay healthy and calm throughout the week? We’d love to hear from you!
