Aveeno Active Naturals Giveaway!!


For years, I have always used natural products on my skin and face. The reason is because my mami and abuelita used them as well. For generation to generation, natural remedies and natural products were handed down in my family.

When we had an earache, a little rosemary was heated up in olive oil and then the oil put on a cotton ball and the cotton ball was stuffed in our ears. It worked. For a tummy ache, we drank fresh peppermint, chamomile or flax seed tea. My mom always used an aloe vera leaf for burns. And my granny always soaked us in oatmeal when we had a rash.

I know many cultures use natural remedies. In the Latino culture, natural remedies are almost always used. And to this day, I still use some of those tried and true remedies handed down to me. I recently had the opportunity to ask Hispanic dermatologist Dr. Francisco Flores some questions about natural products. Here is some of the questions I asked and his answers:


This is some great advice. And I thank Dr. Flores for taking time to answer my questions. I hope you find his answers as useful as I did. 


Here are a few more tips provided to me by Aveeno that will help you this summer. 
Hydrate Your Skin:
It's important to drink at least 9 glasses of water throughout the day in order to stay hydrated. It is also very important to hydrate your skin with products that contain oat and are designed to replenish the skin barrier such as AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This key ingredient relieves the discomfort caused by dehydration. 
Keep Your Hair Healthy and Dandruff-Free:
Oat is also ideal for the dry scalp. Shampoos that contain oat help fight dandruff, restoring the normal PH balance of the scalp and moisturizing the hair. Oat helps maintain a healthy barrier, alleviating the uncomfortable symptoms of dandruff.

Protect Your Skin:
Help your skin look younger for years to come by protecting it from the sun's harmful rays. Apply sunscreen daily, whether your daily activities require you to be outside or not. Using a sunscreen that contains oat will help keep your skin healthier than before sun exposure. I personally recommend AVEENO® Protect + Hydrate sunscreen SPF 30, 50 or 70 to all of my patients.
If you follow these tips and those of Dr. Flores, you are on a great start to making your skin feel healthy. Remember that using products that contain oats are great for your skin and hair. And remember Aveeno products are some of the best around. I always have them in my house. The shampoo and conditioner are fantastic.

  1. I just started switching over to natural products for my family, Just wish they didn't cost so much more than the regular ones. But not having all of the harmful chemicals in them is worth all the money in the world!
