3 Things You Can Naturally Do to Prevent Dry Skin

3 Things You Can Naturally Do to Prevent Dry Skin

Posted on April 21, 2023.

As the seasons change and the weather becomes colder, many people start to experience dry, itchy, and flaky skin. 

While there are many chemical-based skincare products on the market that claim to solve this issue, they can often be expensive and full of harsh chemicals that can cause more harm than good. 

At DawnsLight Herbs and Nutrition, we believe in the power of natural remedies for preventing dry skin. 

Here are three things you can do naturally to keep your skin healthy and hydrated all year round.

How to Identify Dry Skin

Before we dive into natural remedies for preventing dry skin, it's important to understand what dry skin is and how to identify it. Dry skin occurs when the skin loses its natural oils, making it feel tight, itchy, and rough. 

Here are some signs of dry skin to look out for:


One of the most common signs of dry skin is flakiness, which is when the skin appears scaly or has small, white flakes. This can be especially noticeable around the nose, mouth, and eyebrows, as well as on the scalp. Flakiness occurs when the skin is not properly moisturized, causing the skin cells to become dry and brittle. As a result, they begin to shed more frequently, leading to the appearance of flakes.

If you notice flakiness on your skin, it's important to take steps to moisturize and hydrate your skin to prevent further dryness. Using natural remedies like body butter and hemp oil can help to lock in moisture and soothe dry, flaky skin.


Another common sign of dry skin is itching, which can be extremely uncomfortable and distracting. Dry skin often feels tight and itchy, especially when exposed to hot water or harsh soaps. When the skin is dry, it becomes more susceptible to irritants and allergens, which can lead to itching and inflammation.

To prevent itching caused by dry skin, it's important to avoid hot water and harsh soaps, which can further strip the skin of its natural oils. Instead, opt for gentle, moisturizing products that can help to soothe and hydrate the skin. Using natural remedies like body butter and hemp oil can also provide relief from itching and irritation caused by dry skin.


In severe cases, dry skin can cause cracks in the skin, especially on the hands and feet. Cracks occur when the skin becomes so dry that it loses its elasticity, causing it to split open. This can be painful and uncomfortable, and can even lead to infection if not properly treated.

To prevent cracks caused by dry skin, it's important to keep the skin moisturized and hydrated. Using natural remedies can help to prevent dryness and keep the skin soft and supple. It's also important to avoid harsh chemicals and irritants that can further damage the skin.

In addition to these common signs, there are other symptoms of dry skin to look out for, including redness, roughness, and a feeling of tightness or discomfort. By learning how to identify dry skin, you can take steps to prevent it and keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Now that you know how to identify dry skin let's look at some natural remedies for preventing it.

The Importance of Preventing Dry Skin

Preventing dry skin is essential for maintaining healthy skin and avoiding uncomfortable symptoms like itching and flaking. Dry skin can be caused by a variety of factors, including: 

  • cold weather
  • hot showers
  • harsh soaps
  • certain medical conditions (like eczema and psoriasis)

In addition to discomfort, dry skin can also have cosmetic effects, such as making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. By taking steps to prevent dry skin, you can keep your skin looking and feeling healthy.

Natural Remedies for Preventing Dry Skin

At DawnsLight Herbs and Nutrition, we offer a range of natural remedies for preventing dry skin. Here are some of our recommended natural remedies and how to use them.

DawnsLight Body Butter

Our DawnsLight Body Butter is a luxurious blend of shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E that helps to moisturize and soothe dry, irritated skin. The body butter is rich and creamy, providing intense hydration without leaving a greasy residue.

To use, simply apply a small amount of body butter to your skin after showering or bathing, paying special attention to areas that tend to be dry, such as elbows, knees, and heels. For best results, use daily.

Hemp Oil

Hemp oil is a natural oil derived from the seeds of the hemp plant. It's rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, making it an excellent moisturizer for dry skin. Hemp oil can also help to soothe inflammation and reduce redness.

To use, apply a few drops of hemp oil to your skin after showering or bathing, massaging gently until it's fully absorbed. Hemp oil can also be added to your favorite moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration.

Other Natural Remedies

In addition to our body butter and hemp oil, we offer a range of other natural remedies for preventing dry skin. Some of the most popular natural ingredients include aloe vera, oatmeal, and honey, which can all help to soothe and moisturize dry skin. 

Our consultation experts can help you choose the best essential oils and creams for your specific skin type and needs. 

How to Incorporate Natural Remedies into Your Skincare Routine

Incorporating natural remedies into your skincare routine is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps.

1. Prepare Your Skin

Before applying any natural remedy, it's important to prepare your skin. Start by taking a lukewarm shower or bath, using a gentle, moisturizing soap. 

After you've finished showering, gently pat your skin dry with a towel, leaving it slightly damp.

2. Use Body Butter and Hemp Oil

Next, apply a small amount of body butter or hemp oil to your skin, massaging it gently until it's fully absorbed. For best results, use these natural remedies daily, especially after showering or bathing.

3. Drink Water and Eat a Balanced Diet

In addition to using natural remedies, staying hydrated and eating a balanced diet can also help to prevent dry skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. 

Eating foods that are rich in healthy fats, like salmon and avocados, can also help to keep your skin moisturized and healthy.

4. Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Finally, it's important to avoid harsh chemicals in your skincare products, as they can strip your skin of its natural oils and cause dryness. Look for natural, organic skincare products that are free of harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens.
