Dry Skin Care Tips by a Beauty Expert

Nourishing and moisturising both internally and externally are very important. Creams and moisturisers – all become ineffective when dryness plays up especially during autumn-winter months. So, what can one do to treat dry skin in the most natural way?

Let’s start with internal oiling. From sunflower and olive oil to corn and mustard oil, keeping experimenting and use a variety of oil while cooking. Also, ghee or purified butter is a must. Keep a teaspoon of pure ghee handy with your meals. Almond oil is very effective in curing dry skin. Rub about a teaspoon of it onto your navel and pat slowly till the oil is absorbed completely. You could do this before going to be as it also has a calming effect.

For another natural remedy, take 10 mashed figs and mix it with a handful of walnut paste. Add some milk and apply this to the skin.

For the face, there’s one basic rule – moisturise daily. Take Vitamin E oil or almond oil and massage about a teaspoon on the dry areas.

You can even make your very own moisturising spray mist at home. Take 100 ml of rose water and add a teaspoon of honey to it. Shake well and spritz all over the face and neck and let the skin drink this up. This helps in toning and moisturising at the same time.
