Dry indoor heat and low humidity levels can starve your skin of moisture and leave it feeling dull, dry and itchy. Luckily, we have several products that can help heal and moisturize your skin, helping you feel refreshed and radiant! 

Refresh dull, tired skin with a blue corn face mask 
This Blue Corn Face Mask gently cleanses the skin, removes dead skin cells and impurities and moisturizes, all in one! The product is part of a project collaboration with the Blue Corn Project/Central Oregon Seed Exchange and Ute Mountain Indian Tribe providing blue corn flour, locally grown lavender and chamomile from Bend, Oregon.   

Treat acne with all-natural honey 
Natural, raw honey from the Ioway Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, is a powerful antioxidant and contains antimicrobial properties. It can also help exfoliate skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, giving skin a glowing, bright appearance. 

Moisturize and soothe with sage and pine lotion  
Light, moisturizing and non-greasy, this lotion will leave your skin feeling soft & silky. Bison Star Naturals uses some of nature’s finest oils: a combination of coconut, jojoba, castor & argan oils plus pure essential oils of sage and pine needle. There are no animal products or perfumes, just pure goodness! 

Opt for natural soap to heal dry, cracked skin 
Ditch the chemical-filled soaps you can find on most store shelves and try something natural and Native-made! These Haipazaza Phezuta Huckleberry soaps are formulated to be soft and gentle enough for your precious babies and our beloved elders.  They are also formulated to supply nourishment and moisture to both your skin and hair and can double as a shampoo alternative. 

Treat chapped lips with honey balm 
Don’t forget to treat dry, chapped lips this winter with Ioway Bee Farm’s Bee Balm. This lip balm is made with natural, pure honey grown on the Ioway Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, and comes in five delicious flavors: berry berry, cocoa butter, cherry, honey, and peppermint.
