Having dry skin can be very uncomfortable and itchy, either because of an underlying condition of the skin, aging or environmental factors. There are several treatments available to treat dry skin in the home, but which are the most effective?
Home remedies for dry skin:
Bananas Another natural ally to help repair dry skin are bananas. Bananas come with rich antioxidants that help replenish the natural texture of the skin. Mash 1 normal banana in a soft paste minus the lumps. Apply it as a facial pack for about 30 minutes before rinsing it with water at room temperature.

You can start working on the scaly feeling by mixing 1 teaspoon of sugar, a few drops of rose water and 1-2 drops of lavender oil in a bowl. Then gently rub this mixture on the dry areas of your body and face, then wash it with warm water to reduce the opacity and fight inflammation.
