Beauty Saboteur: Dry Skin
A supple complexion like Rachel Bilson's might feel like an impossibility for sufferers of severely dry skin. "Many women with the condition resort to thick, chemical-laden creams", says renown dermatologist and VMV Hypoallergenics founder Dr. Vermen M. Verallo-Rowell. "But these formulas can irritate and sting. Instead, try organic virgin coconut oil, an ingredient that prevents water loss and contains fatty acids that are native to human skin, so it goes so far as to help replace skin's lost natural oils." Bonus: A tub of the stuff rings in at under a ten-spot at your local natural foods store.
