Dry skin on the face, feet, and eyelids

Dry Skin

Cold weather with harsh winds is one of the main reasons. Low humidity and working in air-conditioned environments for long periods are other common causes. Low humidity, working in an air-conditioned environment for long periods, and cold weather are all common causes. Many people suffer from genetically dry skin conditions like Psoriasis. Diabetes and thyroid medications can dry out the skin. As you age, your oil glands will produce less oil. This leads to dry skin. Here are some home remedies for dry skin. Consult your doctor before using any of these remedies for dry skin.

Dry skin on the face

The face is exposed to heat, wind, and cold. Dry skin is, therefore, a common problem. Here are some tips for managing dry facial skin.

Tip No. 1:

Take half a glass of milk not boiled at room temperature to start the day. Apply generously to the neck and face using a cotton pad dipped in the milk. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes, then wash off. After showering, pat dry the face and apply moisturizer to it while it is still wet.

Tip 2

When possible, splash some water out of a tender Coconut. Coconut water is a natural moisturizer that can be used at least twice daily when dry skin is a problem. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then wash it off.

Tip 3

Mix two teaspoons of honey with 1/2 an avocado. Mix well and apply to the face. With warm water, wash the face.

Tip #4:

Applying yogurt to the face or neck will help remove dry skin flakes. Yogurt contains lactic acid, which calms itching as well as skin rashes. You can add some ripe papaya to yogurt for a face mask.

Tip 5

Pumpkin contains enzymes that are excellent for smooth, satiny skin. Peel the pumpkin, grate it, and add cinnamon powder. Let the mask soak for several minutes.

Tip 6

Use cotton pads soaked in Olive Oil to remove makeup. It works as a moisturizer on the skin and adds an extra layer of fatty acid that doesn’t deplete it.

Tip 7

Avoid hot water and use a mild face wash instead of soap on sensitive skin.

Dry skin on feet

Our feet are naturally drier than the rest of our body because they have no oil glands, only sweat glands. Dry feet are more prone to cracks and fissures in freezing weather. Overexposure to sunlight can cause dry skin. Another common cause is long, hot baths or showers using harsh, strong soaps.

It is a good idea to wear comfortable cotton socks and shoes that allow your feet the freedom to breathe. Consult a dermatologist if you have severe skin dryness with rashes or scales. They may recommend blood tests to test for Psoriasis, eczema, or dermatitis.

Some remedies can be used to stop the problem in its tracks if they are applied at an early stage. Rub ice over the rashes instead of scratching to soothe the itching and burning.

Tip No. 1:

Mix a teaspoon of olive oil, a few drops of Lemon juice, and a few drops of lavender oil. Shake the oil until it becomes thick and creamy. Apply to feet for at least an hour.

Tip 2

Wear socks and apply vegetable oil to your feet. You can leave this on overnight for maximum benefit.

Tip 3

Petroleum jelly is a viral treatment for dry, cracked feet. Apply a thick coat at night and cover the feet with cotton socks. Repeat this process regularly to keep your feet smooth and soft.

Dry skin on the eyelids

Many of us suffer from dry eyelids. Dry eyelids can cause blepharitis. This condition can cause itchiness, skin discoloration, and soreness.

This condition can be caused by various factors, some of which are directly linked to allergies and hygiene. A particular brand of shampoo, hair dye, cologne, or moisturizer can cause this condition. It could also be a reaction to eyeliner or eyeshadow. It can also be a down or feather comforter.

We wash our faces under the shower spray with our eyes shut. Keep hot water sprays away from your eyes and wash your face using tepid, not soapy, water.

Tip No. 1:

Castor Oil relieves dryness in the eyelids. Aloe Vera Gel provides immediate relief from eyelid rashes, scabs, and other skin conditions caused by dryness and flaking. If fresh gel is unavailable, use a product that does not contain preservatives.

Tip 2

Use a warm washcloth dipped into warm water to compress the eye for 10 to 15 minutes. Continue to do this at least once every day, even if the eyelids have improved.

Tip 3

When you are out in the sunlight, wear goggles and sunscreen.

Tip #4:

Do not touch the eye area with your unwashed hand.

Tip 5

Before going to sleep:

  1. Remove all makeup from your face and eyes.
  2. Use a moisturizer you like, and keep your pillows and comforters aired out and dusted.
  3. Vacuum your house regularly.
