Dry Skin: 5 Home Remedies for Dry Skin

Dry skin (xerosis) is a common condition with many causes. Dry skin can be a symptom that indicates a more serious diagnosis. But in most cases, dry skin is caused by environmental factors that remove moisture from the skin. Heat, hot showers, arid climates, and harsh soaps can all trigger dry skin. Fortunately, you can use home remedies to address dry skin symptoms and restore moisture. 

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a natural emollient and that makes it the perfect companion for dry dehydrated skin. It supremely nourishes the skin and also deeply moisturizes, improving your skin’s overall health. It can be applied pre or post-shower to moisturize your skin.

Aloe vera

The gel present inside aloe vera leaves has skin-healing properties. It is used in many skincare products, but it is quite effective as a home remedy when used directly. You need to check how your skin responds to aloe vera before applying regularly.

Slather Yourself With Honey and Olive Oil

Honey has incredible properties that make it a great friend to the skin; olive oil does too. Combine them to pamper your skin and hair. Mix a spoonful of honey with a spoonful of olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice (a natural skin brightener). Apply this lotion to dry areas and let sit for 20 minutes. Wipe off with a warm washcloth.

Oatmeal bath

Oatmeal is another natural ingredient that can help treat dry skin. Adding powdered oatmeal to a bath or using creams that contain oatmeal may help to relieve dry skin. A 2015 study found that extracts from oatmeal had anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, suggesting it can help treat dry skin.
