After 50 some oil glands in the skin stop producing the oil needed for lubrication Winter itch: in low-humidity areas such as the desert Southwest, and during the winter months elsewhere, water evaporates from the skin very quickly. Dry Itchy Skin:  Dry Itchy Skin Over washing: We are a nation of clean freaks. We routinely wash away the oil layer that normally acts like plastic wrap, sealing in the moisture. Decrease soap use: No soap except where needed, use vata, pitta, or kapha dusting powder instead (if needed) Bathe, don’t shower: A shower equals infinite number of rinsings. Sloshing around in the tub removes less oil Don’t use bath oil: Most goes down the drain. The residue makes the tub slippery, encouraging a fall. Instead apply herbal oil to entire body BEFORE bathing. Dry Itchy Skin:  Dry Itchy Skin Daily oleation: Apply oil every day to the body before shower or bath Sesame oil for vata and kapha Mixed sunflower and sesame oil for pitta Use tepid water: Just as hot water flushes grease from dirty dishes, it flushes protective oils from your skin Choose a mild soap: A major causes of dry skin is daily use of soap. Consider using highly diluted Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap only where and when needed. Or use BanyanBotanicals.com’s Vata, Pitta or Kapha Herbal Dusting Powder made with Chick Pea Flower base.
