Homemade Dry Skin Lotion
Making your own dry-skin lotion provides substantial benefits to purchasing over-the-counter lotions. Commercial lotions can contain harsh chemical-based thickening agents, emulsifiers and emollients. Sometimes these ingredients produce allergic reactions, irritation or redness. In addition, some manufacturers test ingredients on animals or use animal-derived products such as collagen or lard-based glycerin. When you make your own dry-skin lotion, you can ensure it contains all-natural ingredients and is cruelty-free. You can make a rich lotion suitable for all skin types -- but especially effective on dry skin -- with readily available ingredients.
