Home remedies have been around forever and some are pretty effective.
Here I’ll list a few easy to use and safe remedies to hydrate and sooth your dry face problems.
Many people found relief from extremely conditions using natural home made products.
One of the most important treatment for dry skin is to stop using SOAP! It doesn’t matter if you're normal, dry, or oily – nobody should ever use soap on their face.
Your cleanser should be pH balanced. This means that your
facial cleanser cream should have a pH that measures around 7 which is neutral.
The pH measures the how acidic or alkaline your cleanser is. Normal healthy dermis has a pH range 4.2 to 5.6.
At this level, the acid mantle (the upper dermis surface) is in good condition and is protected from dehydration and other damaging elements of the environment like wind, sun or bacteria.
A great natural cure for dry skin is to massage emu oil or olive oil on the dry areas.
Emu oil remedies have been around for thousands of years and has been used by the Aborigines as home treatment for cuts, burns, and wounds.
They had to brave the harsh sun of Australia and knew that not only can emu oil moisturize, heal and protect.
You should apply the Emu Oil each time you wash your face and every night before you go to bed. It’s best to apply the oil while still damp, not wet, just slightly damp like right after drying it with a towel.
Once a week or so give yourself a home mask facial. This mask will also help firm too. – so consider using it before going out for big night. You'll look fabulous! Here is what you’ll need:
Here is how to make it:
Surprising, a dry complexion responds well to a healthful diet.....which is often overlooked. Especially for those who are obsessed with low fat diets.
A very low fat diet does effect your complexion. Consider eating more essential fats into your diet....like fish oil, flaxseed oil, or even pure olive oil.
Flaxseeds oil are easy to incorporate you can buy the seeds and just crush them up and add to yogurt, salads, or shakes.
Or just the oil and pour into the foods listed above. It's pretty tasteless, so you'll never notice it.
Olive oil is very tasty on a salad - and a nice change from commercial bottle dressings. These types of fats will not only help with dry complexion, but can actually help keep your weight in balance.
Studies indicate that diet plays a crucial role in a variety of disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis.
So, what else should a healthy diet consist of? Well, plenty of water for one thing.....believe it not, this is one of the most important remedies for healthy complexion!
Then make sure your eating several servings of fruits - especially avocados - and vegetables.
Don't like fish? consider taking a good, quality fish oil supplement like the on I’ve outlined on the Vitamin and Diet section of this website.
Fish oil can also help reduce weight, cholesterol, arthritic conditions and even improve mood for those suffering from depression.
Sometimes natural remedies are not be enough to help relieve dryness. Some people need more serious help - like with a product especially formulated to hydrate and hold water in the dermis longer.
The quality of this product important especially if your suffering from dryness around the eyes because a product filled with cheap oils can cause breakout or puffy bags under the eyes. Check the label to make sure the ingredients don't contain cheap mineral oils or waxes.
What to do when home remedies are not convenient? - Sometimes it's not possible to use home made products - especially if you're in a hurry or traveling for business or vacation.
A super hydrating, long lasting moisturizer - that really penetrates - can help keep your complexion plump and youthful looking - especially if you're flying which really dehydrates the dermis.
