When you suffer from dry skin, your face feels tense and it is flaky and burns. There are several natural treatments that can stop this problem without needing to undergo costly treatments or use chemicals that can affect your skin.

Next, you will learn about a large variety of products that help keep your skin well-hydrated, prevent it from getting dry and give it a soft and healthy appearance.

Olive Oil and Egg

The combination of olive oil and egg yolk is excellent for treating skin dryness. Olive oil contains vitamins E and K, as well as a large amount of antioxidants. As for egg yolk, it contains vitamin A, which helps make your skin soft.

To do this treatment, mix two tablespoons of olive oil with two yolks and a half tablespoon of lemon juice or rose water. Using a cotton ball, apply this mixture to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for twenty minutes and then remove it with lukewarm water. You will see the difference immediately upon removing the mask.

Lemon Juice and Sugar

The mixture of these two products is great for removing dead skin cells on your skin. With a little bit of lemon juice and one or two tablespoons of sugar, you can exfoliate your skin by massaging gently in circles for ten or fifteen minutes. Then rinse it off with plenty of warm water.

By doing this, your skin will become very soft. Lemon is an excellent astringent and contains vitamin C. This helps lighten the skin’s tone and helps increase cellular growth, which is very beneficial for making your skin smooth.

Almond Oil

Almond oil is a moisturizer, rich in vitamin E, and a great lubricant for dry skin. The best part about this oil is that it is not greasy and your skin absorbs it very easily. It keeps your skin very well hydrated, avoiding dryness. The correct way to use it is to gently massage it on your skin’s face for at least ten minutes, let it act another ten, and then rinse it off with warm water.

Castor Oil

Castor oil creates a protective barrier for your skin against soap, hot water, and dry winter air that can really harm your skin. It is a great natural astringent that helps remove skin’s impurities. It is a great hydrator as well.

You should massage the driest areas of your skin for a short time. Remove it in the same way gently with warm water.

Coconut Oil

With the help of coconut oil, you can easily get rid of the flakes that are produced when your skin is very dry, leaving it much more soft, smooth, and with a very glowing appearance. Leave it on all night and rinse it in the morning. By using this product every night, you will see huge results in a very short time and get very soft skin.


If you are consistent in using any of these treatments, you will see that your skin soon looks much more softer. You should decide which homemade remedy will be more effective. Don’t try all of them at the same time because it will irritate your skin.
