There are many homemade efficient remedies for dry skin that usually help the common issue of dry skin. Skin needs moisture to stay smooth and supple and for that, we can address the dry skin with a few easy strategies.


Select a soap which has extra fatty substances or oil such as lanolin, cocoa butter or coconut oil. These soaps help in maintaining the soaps protective oils as harsh soaps can strip away these.

Antibacterial soaps and deodorant soaps are the main reasons for people suffering from dry skin and these can also be very irritating to the skin.

Anti-aging creams:-

Be careful in selecting these products and make sure you select appropriately as per your skin tone as these products can worsen the dry skin.

Living Conditions:-

With central heating and air conditioning becoming common these days, these can be helping in drying your skin. These heating effects cause humidity levels to drop inside the home and also remove moisture from the air inside causing a drying effect on the skin. It is advised not to overheat the house and also use a humidifier if possible.

Use warm water for bath:-

Taking extended hot water bath can cause the natural oils which protect your skin to wash away. It is advisable to limit your bath and shower time and use warm water for baths and avoid hot water.

Protection while staying outside:-

When the temperatures and humidity levels fall, this generally will result in a dry facial skin. Try to protect yourself from the harsh winds and cold temperature when you are going out by using good winter wear.
