Elly's Natural Skin Care - The Beginning
For most of my life I have had very dry flaky skin that itched constantly leaving red blotches on my face. For many frustrating years I searched for lotions or creams that would help with my skin problem. Nothing ever worked. I tried the expensive stuff and the not so expensive.
Most of it, after using for a little while, would cause my skin more irritation.
My face began to progressively get worse as I got older. The red blotches got bigger the skin more flaky and the itching was non stop. I was at a loss.
One day my husband Bob suggested that possibly the chemicals that I've been applying to my skin for all these years, by way of creams and lotions, could be the cause of my skin problems.
He looked at the ingredient labels of a couple jars and bottles of lotions and creams that I had been using and found that they contained numerous chemicals in them, such as fragrance, alcohol, parabens, dyes and a few other things he couldn't pronounce.
Bob went on a mission to find a safe and effective solution for my skin. His research led him to discover the benefits of natural butters and oils.
He discovered that by infusing certain natural oils, butters and essential oils together, the results would produce a nutrient and vitamin enriched butter that would be excellent for moisturizing and protecting the skin and could help with certain skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.
Bob found that natural butters and oils with their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can dramatically decrease skin dryness and alleviate itching and irritation while soothing the skin and help delay the appearance of wrinkles which normally accompany aging.
He also learned that there is a more natural way to exfoliate and remove dead skin from the body. Bob learned that sugar is a gentle abrasive, excellent for removing dead skin and that sugar is also a natural humectant which draws moisture to the skin. Bob felt that using a good, chemical free, body & face scrub in conjunction with a moisturizing butter should help my skin. So he created both for me to try. He was right. After a few days of using the exfoliating sugar scrub and moisturizing butter my face was rapidly clearing up. My skin problems are now a thing of the past, but I know there are many women, men and teens who suffer from similar skin conditions and are searching for a solution to their problem.
