Dry Skin – Great Home Remedies
When you are battling problems relating to dry skin, finding the right home remedy is of top priority. The discomforts associated with dry, scaly, itchy skin can be unbearable at times.
Luckily there are a wide variety of available home remedies for you to choose from when it comes to dealing with dry skin at home.
Here is a brief collection of some of the home remedies that are easily accessible to you. The best way of dealing with your particular situation may be slightly different than what works for someone else. That’s why you are encouraged to combine these tips in different ways until you find a skin care combination that works for you.
- * After a bath or shower, dry yourself only until you are damp, and then stop at that point rather than going any further. This is actually a much more effective way for you to apply a moisturizing product; when your skin is moist it is more absorbent than totally dry, scaly skin that soaks up the lotion or oil into the dead surface skin, and really serves little or no purpose.
You should not have to jump out of the bath while still soaking wet and immediately apply skin lotion. You should pat yourself down with a towel in order to dry your body up a bit before you apply lotion to your skin. You should still feel damp, because the entire purpose behind applying lotion is trapping the moisture inside your skin rather than drying it all off first.
- * It is also important that you avoid advertising hype when it comes to home remedies for skin care and dry skin problems. Nothing will ever beat natural remedies like mineral oil and petroleum jelly in place of expensive lotions.
Dermatologists tend to agree that natural materials such as vegetable oil, peanut oil and sunflower oil are always great for combating dry skin, especially when it is related to the weather. These are effective skin care remedies and pure methods of skin lubrication as well, not to mention the fact that they’re money savers.
There is one drawback to these products however, which is that they can leave behind a greasy feeling. Commercial lotions and other products do have some advantages, including wonderful fragrances and the smooth textures that rub on easily and leave behind a nice smooth feeling without the greasy residue. But the natural options do work and they will save you money.
When your skin is healthy and nourished again, and looks young and beautiful, you will be glad that you put the time and effort required into your home remedy for healing dry skin. There are a number of different natural options and remedies that you can choose for restoring health and nourishment to your skin.
Combine different home remedies until you get the skin care results that you are satisfied with. Beautiful soft skin is taken for granted by those that have never experienced the discomforts of dry skin. After you get your skin healthy again you will have an appreciation for it like never before.
