Whether you’re coming out of a brutal winter, living in an area with a dry climate or recovering from drying face soaps and other skincare products, there are many reasons why people get dry skin. Nutritional deficiencies can also be a reason, which is why it’s important to eat hydrating foods.
Here are some of our favorite natural home remedies for dry skin, found right in our kitchens.
(Caveat: always do a patch test first, in case you have any allergic reactions.)
- Milk cream
This is a wonderful exfoliant, as milk cream contains lactic acid. The creaminess also makes this a soothing moisturizer.
In-use: Mix two teaspoons of milk cream, 1 teaspoon of milk and a few drops of lemon juice. Rub it on the dry parts of your body and let it sit for about 15 minutes before you take a shower. Do this once daily.
