 12. Natural  Remedies To Get Rid Of Dry, Rough Skin

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera contains high quantities of plant collagen, which helps heal the skin. It’s most effective form is pure aloe vera gel, which you can buy or extract from aloe vera leaves. Using aloe vera gel for stretch marks is similar to using a face mask; it needs to be left on the skin, ideally, for about an hour or two to absorb, so that you might see full benefits of the treatment, before rinsing it away with water. Doing this regularly will moisturize the skin and speed up its healing process.

2. Clean your Skin

It’s important to clean off any makeup, dirt, grease, food residue, or whatever else may be on your face.  The oil cleansing method is a great way to wash your face, since it naturally cleans and dissolves the bad oils on your skin, without drying out the delicate facial skin.

3. Change your Products

You may need to change the products you use, according to changes in your skin or the time of year. In colder months, you may to switch to a richer moisturizer. In summer, you should use one with an SPF. If you have combination skin, it may be necessary to use a lighter moisturizer on the parts of your skin that gets oily (like your t-zone) and a heavier one where your skin gets dry.

 Be careful when choosing a facial or body cleanser, as some cleansers can strip moisture from the skin. Opt for a gentle cream or milk cleanser that will moisturize the skin as it cleanses. Also try to stay away from heavily-fragranced cleansers as the chemicals behind scents can be drying

4. Drink up

While staying hydrated hasn't been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles, experts say it certainly can't hurt. In fact, drinking about two cups of water increases blood flow to the skin, which may improve your complexion. To maintain the water balance in your body, drink the suggested eight (8-ounce) glasses of water a day (about 1.9 liters)

5. Baby Lotion

Apply baby lotion as a moisturizer on your skin as it is free from harmful chemicals unlike other moisturizers, which are used by adults. Baby oil is one of the best moisturizers that can be applied to heal dry and rough skin. You can add a teaspoon or 2 of baby oil in your bath water for a long-lasting smoothness. You can also apply glycerine oil or petroleum jelly to have a soft skin.

6. Glycerin And Rosewater

7. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has sufficient amounts of fatty acid that make up for any loss of moisture from the skin. It works best when left on for an entire night. Apply proper amount before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning; do this every night.

8. Olive oil

Olive oil is natural oil that is highly effective in treating dry skin. Gently massage olive oil all over face and neck using circular motions. Olive oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty
acids. These essential fats help nourish dry skin and make it smooth and supple.

significant positive difference.

The egg yolks have vitamin A that controls the shedding of the skin and make it soft and smooth. For better results, add a few drops of lime juice and rose water.

extra dry facial skin. Use it as a moisturiser, and massage it for about 5 minutes.
