Dry, flaky skin? Your Body Wash Could Be The Culprit

Enriched with plant-based and naturally derived ingredients blended with nourishing oils, enjoy healthy and hydrated skin the way nature intended instead of wasting your time with heavy creams, lotions, and potions. 

From our family to yours, OC Naturals offers affordable, kind luxury, giving you the epitome of radiance and health. Discover how you can revive your dry and flaky skin using OC Naturals Body Wash.

Why is my skin so dry?

Dry skin is inevitable. Itchy, flaky, sometimes tight, other times painful, and mostly annoying; it’s something we all wish we could avoid. Typically caused by hot or cold weather, low moisture in the air, hot water and frequent swimming in chlorinated pools, what might surprise you is that the products you use could very well be the culprit behind your dry skin. If you’ve been using the same stock standard soap since day one, you might be exposing yourself to harsh detergents that can strip moisture away from the skin and remove natural oils. In short, traditional body wash could be doing more harm than good.

When should I see a skincare specialist?

Not all dry skin symptoms are temporary and could be related to another health concern. Individuals with skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (otherwise known as eczema) or psoriasis are particularly prone to dry skin. You should consult a doctor if your skin does not respond to prescription treatment or if you begin to notice the following symptoms:

  • Excessive Redness
  • Trouble sleeping due to dryness and itching
  • Increased Scratching
  • Scaling or peeling skin
