Winterize Your Skin with Natural Beauty Treatments

Before the breezy fall winds and cold winter air wreak havoc on your skin, reach for natural alternatives to traditional skin care. Worry a little less about allergic reactions, chemicals and poor animal treatment by winterizing your skin with natural beauty treatments.

Sesame oil, a great face moisturizer


One of the best all-around treatments for all types of problem skin is oil, in particular, sesame oil. It may seem crazy, especially if you suffer from oily skin, but skin overcompensates when it’s lacking in moisture and skin that is dry does not make enough oil. Sesame seed oil is a nourishing oil that’s good for most skin types. Simply massage a drop or two into your face using your ring and middle finger in circular motions.A nightly treatment is usually all it takes for cold weather moisturizing.
