How To Treat Dry Skin Naturally

Moisturizing products for your skin are available in an endless array, but when you’re on a really low budget, like many of us are these days, buying skin and hair care products often becomes prohibitively expensive.

But moisturizing your skin doesn’t have to be expensive when you use products that you probably already have around the house anyway. They can help reduce dryness, fine lines, and give you that healthy glow throughout the winter. Plus since they may just be in your kitchen or bedroom right now, they do it all without breaking the budget.

  • Lavender, avocado, olive, and coconut oils—These oils are made up of healthy fatty acids and antioxidants that can help keep your skin smooth and radiant.
  • Shea butter—This butter has high quantities of vitamin C, E, A, and lots of fatty acids to help deal with eczema and dry, parched, skin.
  • Aloe—The leaves of the aloe plant are known to secrete a soothing paste that has a wonderful anti-inflammatory effect. It’s also good for burns.
  • Honey—Honey moisturizes the skin without being oily, so it unclogs pores and hydrates the skin. You can apply raw organic honey directly to your skin, or add lemon juice or milk and massage it into your skin.
