Dry skin can make your skin itchy and can even lead to bruises and flakiness. So, one needs to make sure that they keep their skin soft and supple to avoid the dryness of the skin.

There are a few home remedies that you can try to get rid of the dry skin on your entire body. We often only take care of our face forgetting to pamper the rest of our body.

There are certain factors that you need to take care of when you have a dry skin. For instance, people with dry skin should avoid using soaps and opt for hydrating facewashes instead, as this does not remove the oils from the skin.

Dry skin needs to be constantly and regularly moisturised. If the skin is not moisturised regularly, there are chances of flaking of the skin to occur, apart from early ageing.

Therefore, in this article, we are here to share some of the best home remedies that you can try on your entire body to get rid of the dry skin instantly. Read on to know more.


For Chapped Cheeks

When you stay out for longer, the moisture on your face gets robbed, causing you to have a flaky skin on your cheeks. Make sure you step out in the sun by applying a good SPF-rich sunscreen lotion. This helps the moisture to retain within.


For Dry Lips

When you feel your lips are dry, you tend to wet them a lot with your tongue to get an instant relief, right? But the fact is, it makes your lips more dry. The best home remedy to get rid of chapped lips is by applying some olive oil on to the lips and letting it get absorbed in to skin of the lips.


For Knees And Elbows

The skin on this part of the body is the thickest. To get rid of this thick skin, one needs to rub some lemon rings on to it for at least 5 minutes and rinse it with some cold water to notice the difference.


Scaly Legs

Legs are the most common spots for the skin to turn dry, as there are very less oil glands present. One needs to moisturise and massage the legs with a mix of oatmeal and honey. It acts as a good scrub and removes the dead skin cells instantly.


Battered Feet

One of the best ways to moisturise your dry feet is by smashing some avocado flesh on the feet directly or applying a paste with avocado and honey mixed. Let the paste settle for sometime on the feet. Wash it with some lukewarm water later.


For Dry Hands

Let's keep this sweet and soft by just applying honey and lemon mix. It helps to lighten the tan and also moisturises your hands, as honey is a good moisturising agent.

When you have dry skin, even the eyebrows have to take the brunt. Apply a good amount of olive oil before you hit the bed. This helps to keep the skin moisturised near the brows for a longer period of time.
