How To Naturally Get Rid Of Dry Skin On Face

The skin on your face is thin and delicate, which makes it more prone to irritation and damage compared to other parts of your body. As you age, it’s harder for your skin to retain its moisture. Hot summers, cold winters, harsh soaps, frequent bathing and sun will take a toll on your skin.

Some problems that your face can experience is dryness and flakiness. Besides being itchy and bothersome, dry skin can make your skin look dull and tired.

Fortunately, though, this isn't something you have to be too worried about, as there are ways to deal with dry skin through natural ways. While winter is more likely to make your skin dry, as there is usually less moisture in the air, some people deal with this issue all year round. As I said earlier, this is a problem that can be solved. With the right skin care tips, your skin will be glowing in no time.

Here are some natural and effective tips that will ensure your skin becomes soft and supple as it was during your youthful years: 

Use milk to soothe and nourish your skin

Milk contains properties that are anti-inflammatory, which helps soothe and get rid of dry and itchy skin. It also contains lactic acid, which helps exfoliate dead skin cells and helps your skin retain more of its moisture throughout the day.

Nourish your skin with a milk infused washcloth. Soak a washcloth in cold milk and, while lying down, apply it over your face. Keep the cloth on your face for five to ten minutes. Remove the cloth and gently wash off the milk with lukewarm water. Your face should feel supple to the touch. Do this once a week for better results. Please note that this should only be applied to non-acne prone skin.

Don’t stay in the sun for long periods of time

Staying in the sun for too long will dry out your skin. To prevent this, you need to make use of sunscreen every day. With the help of a sunscreen like the Turo Skin Daily Moisturizing Lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 15, you can relieve dryness from your skin while protecting yourself from harmful UV rays.

Remember not to stay out too long between 11am-3pm (when the sun is strongest) and reapply sunscreen regularly. Keep a tube of sunscreen in your bag or purse to easily reapply when needed. If you’re looking for a great bag to carry your moisturizers and other toiletries, this dopp bag may do the trick.

Dab some olive oil to condition your dry skin

Olive oil is another natural ingredient for relieving dry skin. Olive oil has been proven to contain a lot of fatty acids and antioxidants, which are nutrients your skin is needs to stay supple and well nourished.

To take advantage of this natural remedy, apply a dime-sized amount of olive oil to your face before applying your facial moisturizer. A small application goes a long way. Your face will more easily retain its moisture after a long day in the dry heat or in the middle of a windy winter day.

Use a humidifier while indoors

When you are in a place where the air is cold and dry, your skin has more difficulty holding onto moisture. When the air gets dry enough, especially in desert areas or during the winter, the moisture on our skin can evaporate. Try to increase the humidity in your home with a humidifier. Humidifiers can often help relieve dry skin. I suggest keeping a humidifier in your bedroom, as that is where you may find most of your time while at home.
