Come winter, the skin is really sensitive. Dry skin may be caused by extreme weather and tends to itch and it’s taking much of the fun outdoors. Your skin becomes dry when it doesn’t have enough moisture in its outermost layer. Winters amplify this effect as there is very little environmental humidity in the air. This leads to dry and dull skin, which can even become flaky, red and itchy if not paid heed to. Hence it is essential to take care of your skin. Below are easy hacks to keep your skin moisturized.
Aloe Vera is a great natural remedy for skin problems. You can use a number of Aloe creams, masks, and extracts on the market that provide good results in treating dry skin.
Drink a glass of milk with 2 spoonfuls of almond oil on a regular basis to get rid of dry skin conditions.
Mix 2 tsp 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil with 1 to 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil and you’ve got yourself a date with smooth skin. This mixture can be used for a quick application or as a leave-in moisturizer. Make sure that you wipe off the excess oil with a washcloth if you don’t want to use it as a leave-in moisturizer.
Oatmeal masks is a gem! Mix oats with honey and milk and apply to skin and let it sit for about 20 min then wash it off with a washcloth. Oatmeal has antioxidants that would help moisturize your skin.
