Everyone suffers from dry skin at least once in their lifetime, whether it be the damaging effects of the summer sun, the harshness of the winter cold, or simply just being stuck with that particular skin type.  There is an abundance of home remedies and DIY beauty treatments to help those who battle with dry skin on a regular basis.  Some make total sense whereas others are a little peculiar, however either way they have proven to be extremely effective.

Try some of these home remedies and say goodbye to dry skin for good!

1. Baking Soda

This simple everyday ingredient seems to be one of those that come in handy for so many things.  For isolated dry areas, mix together baking soda and water to make a paste and rub onto affected area.  For a full body treatment, add 1 cup of baking soda to the bath and soak away.  Moisturize.

2. Vinegar

Vinegar will help to promote healthy skin, especially apple cider vinegar.  Vinegar can be added to the bath and you may also like to add rosemary or lavender to cut the harsh smell. Plus lavender helps to soothe the skin while calming your mind. Moisturize to help lock in the goodness.

3. Avocado Face Maskavocado

Avocado is an extremely effective moisturising agent and is therefore perfect for dry skin. Mash up avocado into a smooth paste and apply to face, leave on for 15-20 minutes.  Rinse firstly with warm water and then splash with cold water to close up pores.

4. Oil Therapy

Olive oil has always been a popular choice for dry skin because of its ability to deeply penetrate into the skin.  It can also be used as a substitute for your regular daily moisturizer.

Before showering gently massage olive oil, almond oil, or coconut oil onto legs, hands, or entire body. Try adding essential oils to create a unique fragrance. After showering apply a light moisturizer.

Honey not only helps to lock in the moisture but it also contains anti-microbial and antioxidant properties, making it perfect for use in skin care products. Lightly heat 2 teaspoons of honey and apply it to your face, hands, and legs while warm. Leave on for 15 minutes then rinse.

For an even more powerful treatment, use Manuka honey – an even more antioxidant rich variety.

6. Banana Face Mask

Banana is yet another simple everyday pantry item that makes for a perfect base for an at home treatment for dry skin.  Mix together ½ cup of natural yogurt, ¼ ripe banana, and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply mixture to your face and neck, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse.

7. Milky Way Express 

Coconut milk is a miracle ingredient for dry skin, not only that but it can also help combat blemishes and dark spots.  Rub coconut milk onto your face and body and leave on overnight.  In the morning your face will be baby soft. 

8. Vitamin-E Boost

Vitamin E is great for the skin, and not just for its antioxidant properties but also its moisturizing qualities.  Pick up some vitamin E oil, mix with a few drops of lime juice then apply to entire body.  Shower and feel the difference.

Dry skin affects us all at some point, but with these magical eight home remedies you can keep your skin soft, nourished and moisturized.
