10 Top Natural Remedies for Dry Skin

  • 1 min read

Cold winds and harsh winter weather can play havoc with our delicate skin, causing dryness and cracking.

Here are our top natural skincare tips to soothe dry skin this winter:

1. Use coconut oil as a moisturising cream. For chapped heels and hands, apply the oil and then apply socks or gloves overnight.

2. Wash hands and face in luke warm water only. Hot water leads to increased dryness.

3. Make an oatmeal hydrating mask - mix two tablespoons of oats with one tablespoon of honey and a splash of water. Apply to the face and leave for 15-20 minutes before washing off.

4. Use a piece of fresh aloe vera to alleviate redness and irritation related to excess dryness.

6. Stick to natural soaps that do not contain harsh fragrances or chemicals that can be harmful to skin.
