9. Almond Oil

almond oil

Almond oil is an excellent source of vitamin E and, hence, is considered the best emollient and lubricator for dry skin. Also, its antioxidant property is good for your skin’s overall health. In addition, because this oil is non-greasy, it is easily absorbed in the skin.

  • Gently warm up some pure almond oil. Massage your body lightly with the warm oil a half an hour before taking a shower. After your shower when your skin is still damp, apply some light moisturizer. Do this once daily.
  • Drink a glass of warm milk mixed with one teaspoon of almond oil before going to bed. Repeat every night to enjoy healthier skin as well as sound sleep.

Note: Those who are allergic to almonds must not use the almond oil remedies.


10. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has soothing, antiseptic and antifungal properties that can help combat dry, irritated skin and prevent flaking. This simple remedy will moisturize your skin and form a protective layer that will keep your skin free from any kind of impurities.

  1. Cut open a fresh aloe vera leaf and squeeze the gel out of it.
  2. Apply the gel on your dry skin. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
  4. Do this twice daily.

Try these easy remedies to relieve the discomfort that comes from dry skin and restore its natural soft, smooth texture.

  1. Please – warning if you have had your gallbladder removed and are still unable to eat ” fats”. Putting olive oil on your skin will cause havoc on your system.
    I am unable to eat fried foods or anything with oil in it unless it a super low amount and with other food.
    Olive oil I tried on my skin and had 2 days of issues ( not knowing what happened) then I remembered the olive oil on my skin I put for 2 days, well it was more severe due to the fact in got into my system slower and continuos. Be mindful.

    1. If you want moisture added and can’t use olive oil, try a new way: Add it to your skin & leave on for a short time. Then use a cool damp cloth to absorb excess oil.
      Sounds like you have a digestive disorder. Olive oil is a natural food – non allergenic. See your primary care doc and referral to a good G.I. Specialist. I have no gull bladder since 2006.
      Additional suggestion:
      GOOGLE NATURAL MOISTURIZERS. You can even make your own homemade concoctions, but; follow instructions from websites. Final thought:
      Perhaps you are on a medication that is taking moisture from your skin:
      Water pills.

    2. 100% cocoa butter stick! Cheap, easy to apply and works amazingly. I got dry skin and shaving makes it worse, but since using the stick, its been clear! Wal-mart. $3.00

  2. Correlation does not imply causation. If you are really worried that you can somehow eat via your skin, you should talk to your doctor before applying ANYTHING to your skin. After your doctor explains you can’t eat via your skin, you can resume applying lotions and oils. (This is why shampoo bottles, lotions, deodorants, etc don’t come with calorie counts and fat content on their labels.)

    1. The skin does absorb and metabolize what is on it. The opposite is an old school myth. This is why the patch is used to help people quit smoking. Also, pain reducers are administered through the patch because it works!

      1. You are so right!! Used a nicotine patch in the early 90’s to quit smoking. Information that was included with the patch did not say it could cause an overdose with only one patch. (21mg, 14mg. 7mg.) reducing nicotine weekly with lower dosage. I had a heart attack within a 24hr. period. The patch was too strong for my body weight. I should have sued the Pharmacitual Company that made those nicotine patches. Back then, I was just thankful is survived having a cardio infraction /
        heart attack. Every heart attack causes damage to a persons heart. Wasn’t told that back then either. (Doctors should tell us precautions to take &tell us what damage has occurred.)

  3. i will try the coconut oil method. I hope it will be effective, (with aging issue- 49). But a friend of mine suggested that I should take vitamin e aside from applying skin lotion/oil/ moisturizer.

  4. Olive oil is brilliant if you mix a couple of drops with your moisturiser or for extremely dry skin put the oil directly on to your skin .You can make a face mask with oats mixed with boiled water and then spread the cooled mixture on your face after 5-10 minutes wash off with warm water. Aloe Vera is great for getting rid of redness on your skin if like me you have super dry super sensitive skin then sometimes Vaseline is your safest option

  5. Coconut oil is natural and is good for dry scalp by following this method.

    Part the hair row by row apply the oil with a small brush along that row, then follow until entire scalp is oiled.

    Get a pure aloe vera shampoo and wash twice
    For shiney looking healthy hair rub a small amount of oil into the palm of your hands and rub into your hair thoroughly.
    Finally brush hair with a stiff brush.
    Do not artificial shampoo after this treatment.
    During winter always cover your head and keep warm as much as possible.

  6. My daughter had dry skin, it was so bad that her hands had cuts and she couldn’t hold a pen to write. She was given steroids and told it will take weeks to heal. she applied coconut oil and recovered within few days.

  7. Gram flour with milk cream helped me soo much..only once I have applied and I got rid of very bad dry skin..thank you so much for this tip ☺️😀

  8. Hi everybody! I have Sjogren’s’ Syndrome and it make my eyes and my skin extra extra dry i need urgent something really good for my face and my body and if someone know some natural and miraculous drop for my eyes i will apreciate it… the problem im allergic to nuts…
