Easy home remedies for dry skin:
After you take a shower and before you go to bed, moisturize your skin gently. You can use whatever moisturizer, ointment, or cream that suits your skin.
Aloe Vera has hydrating and cooling properties that help our skin to soften and glow.
Applying coconut oil significantly improves skin hydration and increase the number of lipids (fats) on the surface of the skin.
Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and excess dry skin, which can reduce dry patches and improve the skin’s overall texture.
Be gentle while you wash your face. Don’t scrub too harsh, use a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin. Also, always wear sunscreen and lip balm whenever you step out in the sun.
Honey has anti-inflammatory, healing, and moisturizing ingredients which are amazing for dry skin.
