Coconut Oil And Cucumber Face Pack For Dry Skin

Having dry skin can make you feel uncomfortable and itchy. No matter what the reasons are for dry skin, whether it is an environmental factor, ageing or other underlying skin conditions, dry skin definitely need extra care and attention.

Dry skin in medical terms is called 'xerosis cutis' and this skin lacks moisture in its outer layer. If left uncared, dry skin can even crack up and get infected. Therefore, it is important to keep the skin moisturized, hydrated and nourished.

Some store-bought creams and moisturizers can be expensive, while others may seem ineffective. There are plenty of natural remedies that you can consider to relieve dry skin. However, the first in this list is coconut oil, as it is the most effective in treating dry skin.

Coconut oil can considerably improve skin hydration and increase the lipids on the skin surface. The presence of saturated fatty acids with emollient properties makes the oil a great moisturizer for dry skin.

Another remedy that is as safe as coconut oil when used on dry skin is cucumber. No wonder, cucumber has made its way into most cosmetic formulations too. It is deeply hydrating and is the best treatment to fight dry skin.

So, what better treatment can you consider giving to your dry skin, other than a combination of coconut oil and cucumber in the form of a face pack? Here's how you can do it.
