Natural Skin Care Recipes For Dry Skin

Whether you suffer from dry skin all year long, or just need some extra moisture during the cooler temperature months, these natural skin care recipes for dry skin will hydrate your skin and give you the healthy radiant skin you are looking for.  

Here are two dry skin facial SCRUB recipes you’ll like:

Moisturizing body and facial scrub – you can either use salt or sugar.  Sugar tends to be more gentle than salt, so it’s up to you. If you have super sensitive skin, you may want to use brown sugar.

Use either olive oil, organic extra virgin coconut oil, almond oil, safflower oil or vegetable oil – your going to add one part of oil to 2 parts of the sugar or salt and mix together in a small container. (don’t be alarmed if the salt seperates and falls to the bottom – it will do that).

Use this scrub mixture during showering or bathing. Apply mixture to wet skin in a circular motion and lightly scrub the face, or any other areas of dry skin (elbows, knees, feet). Finish by rinsing well with warm water.

Brown Sugar Scrub for Dry Skin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon (or less) olive oil or extra virgin coconut oil
Put sugar in the palm of your hand and mix together with oil to create paste. Massage into skin in a circular motion.  Rinse with warm water.

Here are a few great  MASK recipes for dry skin:
Nourishing Anti-Wrinkle Mask For Dry Skin
2 tablespoons cottage cheese
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix together and apply to face for 15-20 minutes

Honey Mask
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons olive oil
Heat mixture until it becomes more fluid. Apply mask and cover with gauze cloth for approximately 15-20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.

Dry Skin Mask
4 tablespoons yogurt
½ banana
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon honey             
Apply mixture to skin and leave on approximately 10-15 minutes.  Massage into skin well before rinsing with warm water.

Peach mask for dry skin
Mash one large skinned peach
3  teaspoon honey
Add mashed peach and honey together. ** Add 2 tablespoons yogurt to make a workable consistency.  Pat onto face and neck and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
