Winter is Here: Dealing with Dry, Cracked and Itchy Skin Part II

December 20, 2007 at 8:29 am Leave a comment

Here are some more interesting solutions for preventing and healing dry, cracked winter skin.

A nice suggestion would be to take a soothing warm bath. Hot water will exacerbate your dry skin woes, but soaking for 15 minutes in a warm milk or oatmeal bath can do wonders to heal damaged, dry skin.

Here is a wonderful Milk Bath recipe from REAL WORLD MARTHA:

  • Fragrant Bath Salts
  • 1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
  • 1 cup baking soda
  •  2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Combine all ingredients and store in a container. Add as much as you desire to your bath water. To give as a gift make sure to pick a nice glass jar or something pretty. Add a bow and a tag with the name and instructions.

Another Homeopathic Web page called Health 911 suggested the following:

Avocado oil Rub this oil on the afflicted area.
Coconut oil Rub this oil on the afflicted area.
Emu oil is excellent for dry skin problems.
Apply twice a day.
Sesame oil Use on damp skin and let it soak in.
It helps relieve sore, dry skin, flaky skin.
Use regular sesame oil, not the roasted Oriental type.

Actually, you could blend these up with some Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, a little seasoning and make a tasty vinaigrette salad dressing!

Beauty solutions that are good enough to eat!
