There are very few people who are actually blessed to have skin that is considered to be normal. The rest of the population have to deal with oily skin and the outbreak of spots; or dry skin and the fact that they are ageing well before their years or there are those who have to deal with a combination of both dryness and oiliness.
But if you do have dry skin then there is some good news with regards to its treatment as there are no many natural alternatives that are available. If you are not sure if you have dry skin then all you need to do is to take a good look in the mirror. If your skin feels rough or if it looks cracked and rough on the surface of the skin then it is quite likely that you are suffering from oily skin.
The good news is that today, there are several types of natural treatments to choose from for your dry skin.
There are a number of reasons as to why a person develops dry skin and a common cause of the occurrence is the taking of certain prescribed medications, and you should always consult your doctor or to read the instructions to see what possible side effects may take place prior to usage.
It is a fact that dry skin takes place more in the winter than in the summer. The reason for this is because the skin is exposed to the biting cold winds, and then when indoors the skin is exposed to high temperatures. This sudden change in temperature can and does cause a lot of havoc for the skin, and dryness is a consequence.
If you are looking to clear your dry skin and to avoid premature ageing then you need to adopt a natural skin care routine. And the best place to start is with your diet and making sure that is focused on eating fresh fruits and vegetables and staying off deep fried foods. Water is essential for the hydration of the skin so you need to be drinking no less than two liters of water on a daily basis.
Rather than needing to go to the shops or to view the Internet, you can use some very inexpensive products to help remedy dry skin. One of them is coconut oil. When cold this actually does solidify, so you are going to need to heat in order to obtain an actual liquid oil, that you can apply to your skin.
Coconut oil is very effective at soothing dry skin and it is also great for providing relief for a dry itchy scalp. It is best if you can apply the oil to your body or scalp and then to leave this overnight, and wash off in the morning.
Massage the oil well into the skin in order to allow it to deeply penetrate the skin. The effect is very soothing and it will also help you to sleep better to.
However should it be the case that regardless of what you do your dry skin does not seem to be showing any signs of improvement, then a visit to your doctor will be advised in order to obtain a full and correct diagnosis.
