There are many ways to treat dry skin. You really don’t have to suffer with this issue all year round. By making a few small changes to my daily routine, I got rid of redness and my skin was no longer as flaky. It feels amazing.
Try out some of these ways to treat your dry skin and let us know what works best for you – I could always use a new trick.

Gently rub some into your elbows, face, knees and anywhere else on your body that’s dry. Other versatile oils such as Argan oil and Barbary fig seed oil can also be used for the hair to soften your locks, reduce frizz and give your hair a natural shine.
4. Eat Lots Of Fresh Fruit. Your Skin Loves It
