There’s no denying the fact that proper nourishment is the key to glowing skin, particularly in the depths of winter as cold air strips us of essential moisture and nutrients. But first look around your home before running to a moisturizer’s nearest shop. Why purchase costly pre-packaged products if you can find natural moisturizers in your kitchen?
Here we are providing some all-natural remedies for moisturizers that will leave your skin glowy and hydrated. Try out these tips for dry skin to glow.
1. Honey for Dry Skin
Raw, organic honey is naturally anti-bacterial, so it is an efficient therapy for acne, helps unblock pores and is an excellent cleanser. It is also full of antioxidants, making it a powerful fighter of wrinkles, aging skin, irritation and blemishes, all while leaving a beautiful afterglow. Use: combine two tablespoons of honey with eight tablespoons of water until a paste form. Apply to the skin and allow it to dry, then wash off gently with luke warm water.
2. Coconut oil for Dry Skin
Coconut oil is naturally full of collagen-supporting lauric acid and readily absorbed deep into the skin for amazing moisturizing without leaving you feeling greasy. Its antibacterial and antimicrobial characteristics also make it an excellent anti-ager. It is among the best home remedies for dry skin.
Use: Find raw, unrefined, virgin organic coconut oil, heat it between your palms to liquify and rub it into your skin.
3. Cucumbers for Dry Skin
Cucumbers are an amazing source of water for your body, both inside and outside. Packed with nutrients such as magnesium, potassium, vitamins A and E, cucumbers encourage blood circulation and healing, both of which benefit the skin, bones and nails. The vegetable also helps to lower wrinkles and encourages a glowing complexion, and because of its elevated water content, it can treat puffiness around the eyes.
To use: start small and simply place slices of cucumber over your eyes for simple de-puffing. You can also puree a cucumber and add a few drops of honey to form a hydrating, relaxing mask.
4. Aloe Vera for Dry Skin
Aloe is commonly used in many skincare products because it helps to moisturize the skin without leaving it greasy. Nutrients such as beta-carotene and vitamins C and E maintain skin soft.
Use: Carefully cut and peel an aloe-vera leaf to expose the gel inside, then apply to the skin.
5. Olive oil for Dry Skin
Olive oil has been used as a moisturizer for decades. Its antioxidants and natural acids help enhance the skin to create a natural barrier against the sun’s damaging effects.
Use: Add a few tablespoons of olive oil and two drops of essential lavender oil to a shower for a moisturizing and refreshing effect.
