Fight Dry Skin- 6 Home Remedies For Brides To Be!

By  | 

Dry skin is a common skin condition that affects many women all over the world. Our human skin has its own natural levels of moisture which keep it supple and hydrated. However, skin can become extremely dry due to high levels of dehydration in the body, due to other internal factors or even due to other external factors like the weather. Dry skin, if not treated correctly, can lead to bigger skin patches, and visible cracks in the skin which can also cause bouts of itchiness.

For brides to be, dry skin can be a very irritating deterrent to otherwise healthy glowing skin and unfortunately, the use of cosmetic products can make the skin even drier. By simply masking this kind of skin condition, you end up doing more damage to your dry skin eventually. But don’t worry, because we have 6 simple home remedies that will address all your dry skin woes and that means you not only will see fast results in no time but you don’t have to give up hot showers anytime soon either!

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been at the receiving end of a lot of criticism over the years but just as the medical field has started exploring its many health benefits, beauty experts too have been raving about its exceptional skin healing components. It contains ample amount of protein and most importantly Vitamin E which has been known to boost skin texture effectively. We suggest applying coconut oil on your dry skin immediately after a bath for maximum absorption.

It tastes great on your toast and is also a good substitute to sugar. But did you know that some of the best beauty products and face masks in the world also use honey as an important ingredient? This is because honey has plenty of anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties which help to heal skin related concerns slowly but successfully. A good way to get maximum benefits of honey is simply by applying a thin layer of it on your skin and washing it off after 30 minutes. You’ll find that pimples will dry faster too.

Malai or Milk Cream

Don’t throw away the top fat rich layer that can be found in boiled milk. Save that for applying it directly on your face as malai contains lactic acid which occurs naturally and has been found to be a natural exfoliating agent too. It’s important to remember that dry skin needs regular exfoliation in order to remove the dead cells which are found on the skin’s topmost layer. Secondly, lactic acid has been found to given the collagen production in skin a boost too. Simply use a face mask containing malai, besan and lemon juice regularly for glowing skin.

Aloe Vera

Nature’s miracle worker slays more than one skin and hair problem in just one application. If you have dry skin, then give the natural gel found in these fleshy leaves a try. Simply apply the gel all over your body or on those areas where you have dry skin and wash off once it dries. Aloe vera has natural moisturising properties and keeps your skin clear. It actually regenerates new skin cell growth and gently removes old scars too.

One of the best ways to get the most out of this healthy fruit is by making a mashes banana fruit face pack with honey and yoghurt added to it. So, why should you seriously think of applying a mashed banana to your face instead of just eating it? Firstly, bananas have plenty of moisturising properties which also make your skin soft and smooth but most importantly, they are also known to help women have younger looking skin- and who doesn’t like that?


Dry skin can turn red on excessive itching and can also be scaly at times. But one of the best ways to gently exfoliate is by using oatmeal which removes dead skin cells effectively leaving behind a healthy glow. You may wonder if using oatmeal will dry out your skin further but it won’t and will also simultaneously get rid of any redness or skin itching. However, we don’t recommend using oatmeal more than twice a week.
