5. Using Olive Oil and Sunflower Oil for Dry Skin

Many people looking for an economical way to treat dry
skin use kitchen store cupboard ingredients like olive oil
and sunflower oil. Parents use olive oil to treat dry skin
patches on babies’ skin.

But are these oils effective? The truth may surprise you. A
2013 study from the University of Sheffield Medical School,
Sheffield, UK found sunflower oil improved hydration but
olive oil actually damaged the skin’s barrier, potentially
increasing the dryness of the skin. Further research is
needed but use olive oil sparingly for massage or dry skin
treatment.

6.
Does Coconut Oil Help Dry Skin?

Another natural oil that may be of benefit for dry skin is
coconut oil. A 2004 study from the Department of
Dermatology, Makati Medical Center, Philippines showed
virgin coconut oil is as effective, and as safe, as a mineral
oil for the purposes of moisturizing dry skin. And a 2008
study by the Skin and Cancer Foundation, Pasig, Philippines
found the topical application of coconut oil effectively
treated atopic dermatitis.

7. Use Aloe for Dry Skin Caused by Psoriasis

































Aloe vera cream is famously soothing and shows promise
as a dry skin treatment, particularly when it comes to
treating dry skin caused by psoriasis.

Aloe applied three times a day for four weeks effectively
treats the symptoms of psoriasis, according to a 1996
study from Malmö University Hospital, Sweden.

8.
Try Aloe Gloves as a Dry Skin Treatment

In addition to applying aloe vera as a cream, you could also
use specially designed aloe vera gloves to coat the hand
with soothing gel. A 2003 study by Northwestern
University, Chicago looked at 30 women with dry skin from
working on a factory assembly line and found that wearing
the gloves for 30 days improved the surface of the skin,
decreased the appearance of wrinkles, and soothed
dermatitis.  

9.
Oatmeal is a Dry Skin Savior?

Adding a spoonful of instant oats to your bath could help
soothe dry skin. And rubbing hands with wet oatmeal
instead of soap is said to treat dry hands.

Oatmeal is a safe and non-irritating addition to cosmetics
and dry skin preparations so you can try it with confidence,
according to 2012 research from Johnson & Johnson Santé
Beauté France, Issy les Moulineaux, France.

10.
Eucalyptus as a Dry Skin Treatment

Using a eucalyptus extract to treat dry skin in the winter
was a successful strategy tested by researchers in a 2013
report from Kao Corporation, Biological Science
Laboratory, Haga-gun, Tochigi, Japan. Twenty people used
a moisturizer with an added eucalyptus extract on dry legs,
for 28 days. Treatment with eucalyptus significantly
improved dryness, roughness and scalines.
