Tips For Dry Skin
Dry skin is really a problem if not monitored properly. In winters, you may become stressed thinking about your skin condition. You cannot just leave the skin alone without progressing towards the care to be taken.
Dry skin can show symptoms such as scaling of the skin membrane, itching and cracking of the skin. All these are caused due to loss of moisture from the skin which gradually opens up the pores and discourages the texture.
Henceforth, follow simple tips which can help you have a soft and glowing skin even in dry conditions.

Take a bowl and add three spoons of olive oil to one spoon of castor oil. It is better if you warm the mixture a little. It would be more effective. Apply the mixture on your skin. Then take your towel and warm it. Keep the warm towel on the areas where you have applied the mixture until the oil penetrates completely to the pores. Castor oil penetrates deeper than any other oil.
Do a honey treatment:
Honey is naturally the best for every kind of skin care. Dry skin needs scrubbing for most of the time. But any scrubber used without moisturiser is in vain. Therefore if you are using a scrubber then have a little honey with it too.
