Home-remedies for dry skin

Winter is just round the corner. As we observe change in the weather, everything from our head to toe changes; our wardrobe, our food and even our health. One thing that bothers most of the people is how to take care of our skin in the sizzling cold weather.

Our skin turns extremely dry. On one hand, where we use tons of moisturizers, creams, and lotions in order to avoid dryness, on the other hand, we say ‘good bye’ to our fair complexion as it’s a gift of winter. These moisturizers turn us into walking-talking oil factories and we cannot help but hate the weather.

But cursing the weather won’t help. You don’t need to be sad; we can still shine even in winters just by following some common skincare home-remedies (totkas).

BODY-BUTTER

In order to keep your skin moist, you need a really good moisturizer and body-butter is the best of all. In order to make your own body-butter, you need plain cream (which you can get from any medical shop) and apricot. Keep apricots in the sun for two to three days, make their mixture and mix them in the plain cream. Use the mixture on your skin and you will surely feel the difference.

ALOE VERA PASTE

Remove the outer part of an aloe vera plant. Add lemon and some honey in it. You can keep this paste for some days and use it on your body in order to get shiny moist skin.

BANANA MASK

Mash bananas and add honey in it. Use this mask once a week on your skin in order to get some really amazing results.

ORANGE POWDER

Oranges are common in winter. Keep the skin of the orange in the sun for some days in order to dry them. After that, grind them till they turn into powder form. You can use that powder with multiple things, which includes milk, rosewater, egg-white and honey. It’s one of the best things to use in winter.

TEA-BAGS

Keep used tea-bags in the fridge and use them on your eyes in order to get rid of dark circles.

PEACH-HONEY PASTE

Peach and honey paste is also an amazing mask to use on your skin.

TOMATO MASK

Tomato paste, honey and lemon mask also results in moist skin.

Winters are love! You can make the most of this season by wearing trendy-cool jackets and tops as well by having spicy and super-hot soups. You don’t need to be worried for your skin as now you have a collection of solution for your problem. If you are still unable to get the desired results, do change your diet then as what you eat becomes what you look.

Love yourself, take time out for yourself and live happy!
