Natural Home Remedies & Tips for Dry Skin

Dry skin is a universal problem regardless of the climatic zone in which you live in this world. We would have seen a myriad of dry skin care advertisements on tv and tried a multitude of cosmetic creams but the problem seems to be eternal. Dry skin may be due to several reasons including low humidity conditions, vitamin deficiencies, pollution, inappropriate cosmetics, high pH soaps and other genetic disorders. The chief reason for dry skin is the skin's inability to retain water. The skin's sebaceous glands secrete oil that retains moisture on the skin and any interference with this natural function can cause dry skin.

Dry Skin Herbal Home Care:

  1. Olive oil has a unique ability to mollify dry skin and acts as a natural skin moisturizer. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants that nourish your skin. Olive oil mixed with vinegar and water is a very effective home treatment for dry skin.

  2. Aloe vera gel can be applied as a hydrating mask for your dry skin. Aloe gel is perfect for dry wrinkled skin and heals several skin conditions.

  3. Honey is a proven panacea for skin related disorders. Painting honey over parched and cracked skin gives a soothing experience and assists in rapid recovery.

  4. Fruits like papaya, pumpkin, apple, tomato, cucumber, banana, almond, etc can be used as a moisturizing and nourishing mask on your dry skin.

  5. A mixture of rose water, milk/curd and honey serves as an effective face pack as well as cures dry skin.
