6 Natural Cures For Dry Skin

5: Try natural remedies for dry hair.

For dry hair, mix one egg yolk and a tablespoon of liquid castile soap to shampoo your hair and condition your itchy scalp. Egg yolks, when massaged into the hair and left to work for 5 to 6 minutes, may strengthen the scalp, and some believe it prevents hair loss, says Gabriel.

Or try Pecnikov’s Hydrating Mask for Dry Overworked Hair: Mix 1 avocado with 2 tablespoons each of lightly heated rapeseed and olive oil. Massage into hair, and put plastic shower cap on head to retain heat and moisture. Leave on hair for 15 minutes. Double the ingredients for longer hair.

6: And don’t forget to treat your skin from the inside out.

“A diet rich in magnesium, essential fatty acids, vitamin C, and beta-carotene naturally feeds your skin from inside and makes it less prone to dryness,” says Gabriel. She recommends feeding your skin with a meal plan that includes dark chocolate, salmon, and other fatty fish, oranges, mango, and carrots.

Yeah, the sugar scrub idea works wonders for the skin. My skin is very very dry, so I need something a bit stronger than just oil....so far my favorite scrub is from Turtle Creek its called Invigorating Body Polish. It has shea butter and other oils that makes it thick and very very moisturizing. My feet and hands are so happy with this scrub.

I've heard that vitamin E added to organic natural olive oil is very good for dry skin conditions. What are your thoughts? You can obtain additional information at the following site: http://www.naturaldryskintreatments.publicsets.com/
