In this article you will read about homemade remedies for dry & very dry skin, the importance of good diet and products you may consider buying as they can be useful in treating dry skin.
Do It Yourself
Enjoy some homemade recipes for natural moisturizers for dry skin. They are quick to prepare and you will be surprised how good they can moisturize your skin.
Olive, Sunflower or Almond Oil
Natural oils are on the top of the list of best moisturizers for body and they provide solid barrier, protecting your skin from losing moisture.
How to Apply:
If you have dry hands, you can apply really thin layer of any chosen oil onto your hands and give it few minutes to soften and nourish your skin, then apply second layer – it’s more efficient way than applying one, thick layer of the oil.
Note: Natural oils are often the first recommended option by dermatologists.
Oat Meals Bath
Just add 2 cups of blended oat meals to your bath – quick and easy!
You will need flaxseeds, olive oil and vitamin A & E in drops.
- Pour the boiling water to previously blended flaxseeds, mix it well to create smooth consistency.
- Add small amount of olive oil and few drops of vitamin A & E, mix it well again.
- Apply the mask over your face and wash it off after 15 minutes with cool water.
1 Tip: If you have dry skin problem and you prefer taking long, warm baths, consider switching to much quicker showers (not too hot). Your skin will feel much better.
2 Tip: Be careful what soap you use. It’s recommended to use shea butter soap, which will not dry your skin, like ingredients in some other soaps do.
