Dry skin that’s rough, flaky and chafing can be uncomfortable and unsightly. What do you do about dry skin?

Sunlight and heat both contribute to your skin’s overall quality and dryness: tanning can lead to chapped skin that leads to ashiness. Drinking enough water is also important for keeping your skin cells healthy and hydrated. Dry skin can also be genetic \, or a result of your genes, like hair color or nose shape.

Having dry skin does not have to be a stress causing event, nor does it have to be costly to fix. In fact, you may be able to treat your dry skin at home.

Natural

While seeing a dermatologist can usually help persistent problems, it also means more time and over-medicating. Going to a doctor means medicated creams, pills, or other treatments. Using store-bought products is like choosing a cure out of an array of seemingly equal products. Either of these options can be a guessing game complete with repeated expenses or a long waiting period for doctor’s appointments.

Natural ingredients mean less guessing on what will work. Just as fruits and vegetables are what we consider to be healthy and fulfilling for our bodies in terms of sustenance, these things and more can be beneficial to other areas of our body, like the skin. Using a homemade remedy can often cure minor aches and pains, and it’s a delightful surprise when something so simple solves these problems without a doctor’s note.

Making your own skin treatments is great if you’re suffering more occasional dry skin or during cold weather seasons. Habitual dry skin can be rooted in a more persistent problem like ecsema or psoriasis that are extreme cases.

Whole Foods

Using whole foods can be a great restorative choice as well as healthy for your diet. Natural items still contain many of the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients contained in skincare products without the excess chemicals or processing.

Natural sources of ingredients sourced from sustainable or GMO-free locations is a great way to start when it comes to homemade recipes. Choosing organic as well limits your skin’s exposure to any harmful pesticides or GMOs used in treating farm plants to bring a load to the table. Make your own skin treatments out of combination of a variety of items that help with dry skin and its effects:

  • Avocado
  • Honey
  • Lemons
  • Milk
  • Oatmeal
  • Banana
  • Egg yolk or white

Mash up your ingredients to form a paste, and add a small amount of water so that the ingredients blend together. Bathe or wash beforehand and  be sure your face clean and dry before applying the mixture. Once applied, let the masque sit until dry before removing. For a deep moisturizing effect, leave on all night.

Perks of using these sources is that your skin gets treated to a host of vitamins and minerals that are also of noticeable benefit as well. For example, contributing citrus fruit into your recipe gives you greater sources of vitamin C, which promote skin brightening and elasticity.

Take a little time to take care of your skin with natural remedies. Say goodbye to dry skin with treatments right out of your kitchen.
