Five Natural Ingredients To Soothe Dry Winter Skin

May 05, 2021

Winter is well and truly at our doorstep, with the hot chocolates and hearty stews, come dry flakey skin and chapped lips.
The good news is that you can keep your skin soft and moisturised whatever the season, with these 5 ingredients that will ease dry skin. Look out for our clay masks, natural soaps, body oils, and lip balms that contain these ingredients and your skin will feel more supple in no time.

Coconut oil
Coconut oil is often found in lip balms and body oils, because as well as being a natural moisturiser it also smells great. You can apply coconut oil to dry skin straight from the tub, or even add a spoonful to your bath for a soothing soak that smells delicious. 
Rosehip oil
Rosehip oil is filled with fatty acids such as linolenic acid which help to hydrate the skin as well as keeping cell walls strong to reduce water loss. Studies suggest that rosehip oil had significant anti-ageing affects as well as improving both skin moisture and elasticity.
Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is used the world over in skin products to soothe and moisturise. It's easy to source, too: just snip a leaf off your Aloe plant and squeeze out some of the clear jelly from the centre.

Jojoba oil
Jojoba oil is another natural ingredient that's packed with omega fatty acids and anti-ageing power. Jojoba oil is used in products to moisturise and plump, making it perfect for face creams and clay masks.
Avocado Oil
The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents in avocado oil help your skin stay smooth, strong, and elastic. Avocado Oil is also great to bring down itchy or chafed skin and works as a barrier for UV light.

One of the main benefits of cold process soap making is having complete control over ingredients. This is why we chose this process. Like all of our Scrubba products, we are very particular about what goes into them. Cold process soap has no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils and can cause allergic reactions. Additional ingredients are also added to increase the skin loving benefits, like oats, kaolin and a bunch of other botanicals. Depending on the ingredients you use, cold process soap making typically yields a long-lasting bar of soap.

We love our city and with the QT Newcastle opening on Thursday (they’ll be stocking some of our products!), we’ve been thinking about how amazing it is to have another beautiful hotel in the city. Then we were thinking about how great of a place for tourists our city is, with so many things to do. I’ve just had friends visit from out of state who were shocked with how many amazing restaurants, bars, beaches, and general cool things there were to do around Town. So I thought I’d put together some of my favourite places to go, things to eat, drink and see.
