skin care products

Everyone has experienced dry and cracked hands at least once, if not many times, in their life. Dry skin can be caused by multiple factors, and as it gets worse and dryer, your skin will start to crack. Dry and cracking skin can be caused by environmental stressors, low humidity, irritation and inflammation, or skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. If you’re trying to heal your cracking skin, it can be helpful to first identify the cause in order to determine how most effectively treat the cracking and care for your skin.

However, generally speaking, the key to soothing and healing dry and cracking skin in the long term is to restore your skin barrier, soothe irritation and inflammation, and slow down water loss from the skin. Hydrated skin is skin that retains its moisture and a healthy skin barrier helps your skin retain that moisture.

To do this naturally, look for skin care products made with natural ingredients that support your skin’s health and balance its properties. Also look for skin care products that contain oils and butters that will help create a barrier on your skin and prevent water loss.

Every Azuri hand and body product contains the Azuri elixir, an ayurvedic blend of six herbs that includes Ashwagandha, Anantmool, Gudduchi, Calendula, Licorice and Manjistha. This proprietary blend combines water based and lipid-based extractions to get maximum nutritional benefits. This signature blend of herbs and botanicals supports skin health and functioning.

Ashwagandha and Gudduchi are adaptogenic herbs that help bring stressed and overworked skin back to its balanced state. Common skin stressors come from the environment, UV rays, and each everyday products like hand sanitizer. Anantmool, Calendula, and Licorice are incredible anti-inflammatory herbs. Anti-inflammatory products soothe irritation and redness, and help revive damaged skin tissue. Calendula, along with Manjistha, increase blood and oxygen flow to the skin, which helps your skin heal and protect itself. Together, these six powerhouse herbs protect the skin from stressors, soothe irritation, and help the skin heal itself. This helps restore your skin barrier so it can retain moisture and keep itself hydrates, regardless of the environmental conditions.

Azuri’s line of brightening cream for sensitive skin also contain Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful ingredient that aids in hydration of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, meaning is draws water into the skin like a sponge. It also helps water bind to your skin cells. Along with the Azuri Elixir, it fortifies the skin’s natural barriers to help lock moisture in for an even more dramatic hydrating effect. Over time, this can help slow down the deterioration of this barrier and help protect and strengthen it.

This line of hand and body creams comes in three beautiful scents: Hint of Citrus, Patchouli Soothe, and Lavendar Dream. Choose which scent you enjoy the most and be prepared to have the healthiest, most moisturized hands you have ever had.
