Getting Rid of Dry Skin! March 26, 2008

In-case any of you haven’t noticed the weather here in the UK has been just a tad strange this year, we’ve had gale force winds, lovely sunshine and snow all in a matter of a few months.

Now, if your like me, you enjoy going for walks – down the beach, through the woods, or even just through your local park, and if that’s the case you’ve no doubt been getting wind chapped.

Sure you’ve probably covered yourself up, but what about your face? Again, if your like me, you need to see where your going when your walking, heh! — and that means your face gets a battering from the winds … and especially if your walking along the coast like I do every weekend.

At the end of February I started noticing that my face had alot of dry skin, especially around my eye-brows, nose and cheeks.

At the same time we’d just taken on a new product range made by a company called Raw Gaia – so I thought I’d give their Living Hemp Moisturiser a go.

Well, as I mentioned in a previous post when I told you all about our new Raw Gaia range, it smells lovely, but best of all after only 2-3 weeks of using it daily, I have noticed that I don’t seem to be getting dry skin on my cheeks or nose anymore!

I’ve still got some dry skin on my eyebrows, but I think that could be because I don’t use enough of the cream on them, so we’ll see in a few weeks if that changes too.

But I can highly recommend this new moisturiser from Raw Gaia, not only does it smell lovely, but it actually works in helping get rid of dry skin, on the face anyway … can’t say I have used it on my hands or anywhere else, as I don’t suffer from dry skin anywhere else, but Raw Gaia say it does, so I’ll take there word for it!

Oh, and before I forget, I’ve found the best time to put some on my face is after a nice warm shower (or just a quick(hot) face scrub) as it gets rid of the excess skin on my face and I think also opens my pours so the moisturiser is absorbed better!

Anyway, if you fancy trying some, we’ve of course got some for sale over at the Enchanted Gift Shop, which you can be taken to by clicking here

Enjoy!

One of our customers mentioned a few weeks back that it would make sense that as we are now selling essential oils, that we should start selling Skin Care products too. At first we thought it a bit strange really, at no point in the past had we thought about moving down this line, but then the more we really though about it, the more it made sense.

Anyone who shops with us must use some kind of skin care product, regardless whether you are male or female, and it makes strange sense that if your buying a pendant or a spell book from us, you might want to buy some skin care items too!?

So, we’ve spent the last couple of weeks researching into this, and have decided to launch along with the website redesign, the Enchanted Gift Shop Organic Skin Care & Toiletries section … tada! … bet you liked that category name, huh!? :o)

We could of course just bung any old products in there, moisturisers from joe bloggs company, face creams from jane bloggs company etc, however, we want to start moving down the line of everything we sell being environmentally friendly, organic, fairtrade etc … and it made sense to start with one of the most important things, that being the products you put on your skin.

We’re big advocates ourselves of using organic and fairtrade products, so why we didn’t think of it sooner my cat only knows! … but we have begun adding some carefully selected lines, and we hope that you will enjoy them.

I know one thing, all of the skin care products we will be adding will have the purest most naturalist ingredients possible … why? because we use them ourselves, and if we won’t put nasty chemicals onto our skin we wouldn’t expect you to either!

If you were to visit my bathroom you would see all of the skin care products we are now selling via the Enchanted Gift Shop and these currently range from Raw Gaia Living Skin Care products to Yaoh Organic and Vegan Hemp products … which are both delightfully sumptuous ranges of skin care and toiletries, and make you feel like a god/goddess after applying them … if I must recommend a product, go for the Raw Gaia Living Hemp Moisturiser it has a lovely feel on the face and the smell …. mmm mmmm! :o)

Anyway, enough babbling about the smells … if you visit the direct link below to our new skin care range, you can see for yourself what we currently offer — and stayed tuned because we are working hard by researching into new ranges to bring you.
