4 Effective Remedies for Sensitive Dry Skin

Skin problems are our daily companion. People who have sensitive dry skin face many skin problems, which can be countered easily with some simple home remedies. Often we do not have time to visit a beauty salon for professional facial treatments but that should not stop us from taking care of the facial skin at home. Many easy home remedies nourish dry and sensitive skin from within and makes it glow, irrespective of the climate. Here are some home remedies for sensitive dry skin.

Banana and Yogurt:

Banana and yogurt are both easily available and inexpensive skin care ingredients. You may find them right now in your refrigerator. Mixing these two ingredients together you can make a nourishing and hydrating skin care mask to improve the health of your skin.


Mix together cocoa powder, avocados and honey for preparing a gentle mask for your dry and sensitive skin. Chocolate can help in reducing stretch marks, scar marks and fine lines. You can apply the chocolate mask on different parts of your body. Along with the described home remedies maintaining a healthy diet and drinking lots of water is necessary for you.

Olive oil and egg yolk

Olive oil is also effective in fixing dry skin problems. When you mix a teaspoon of olive with egg yolk and honey, it turns into a good facial mask. This facial mask deeply moisturizes the facial skin. You can also mix a little bit of rose water in this pack. Olive oil contains Vitamin E and K that are necessary for the nourishment of the facial skin.

Almond oil

The almond oil is naturally rich in vitamin E. It is gentle on the dry, sensitive skin and soothes the irritated areas. Almond oil is also a lubricator that softens the skin and can be used for facial massages. This oil is non-greasy. Your skin will easily absorb the almond oil drops you massage into the skin. You should massage gently at least for five minutes and rinse your face clean with lukewarm water after keeping the oil on your face for 10 minutes. Almond oil is good for sensitive skin but if you are allergenic to nuts then avoid this oil. Oil extracted from nut may affect your skin adversely.

People with dry and sensitive skin cannot tolerate harsh chemical substances. They have to be careful about the skin care products they choose. Natural and herbal home remedies prepared at home are gentle on the skin and do not cause irritation.

There are many reasons why people want to make their skin lighter, and this site aims to help you understand as much as possible about the whole process of skin whitening, and how to find reliable products.

There is a fair amount of difference in the way you should do a treatment for every individual, but you basically have a choice of using something mild like lemon juice, a non-prescription cream containing chemicals like arbutin, or a prescription cream containing high-strength bleaching chemicals.


It’s best to try the least potent chemicals first, and also understand exactly what you’re doing, as it’s a fairly serious cosmetic procedure, bleaching your skin white. If you have white skin, it may be relatively easy to bleach one area of your face or body, and not have to bleach the rest, but for a dark skinned person, they may decide that they have to bleach the whole body the same color, which can be a big undertaking.

Acne And Its Treatment

Acne is a menace. Nonetheless, it’s not something that cannot be treated. There are scores of acne treatment products about. We can separate acne skin care products into 3 noted categories

  1. General acne skin care products
  2. Specialised, over the counter acne skin care products
  3. Prescription acne skin care products.

The general acne skin care products are the ones that are used as an acne-prevention measure. These include cleansers, makeup removers and suchlike products that help prevent acne. In the real sense, these acne skin care products are just those that should in any event be a component of your everyday routine. Nonetheless, some of these are more oriented to work like an acne treatment. These acne skin care products act against the causes of acne e.g. restricting the production of sebum/oil and stopping clogging of skin pores. Basically, these acne skin care products stop the oil from getting trapped in pores and therefore hinder the growth of bacteria that lead to acne. The general acne skin care products also include exfoliation products like skin peels. These work towards getting rid of dead skin cells, therefore reducing the likelyhood of pore-clogging and bacteria growth.

Then there are specialised acne skin care products that are getable over-the-counter i.e. without the need of a prescription. These include products like vanishing creams which extract the excess oil from the skin. The bulk of these acne skin care products are based on benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, both of which are the foes of bacteria (and hence acne). You should begin with a product that has a lower concentration of benzoyl peroxide and see how your skin responds to it. Alpha-hydroxy-acid based moisturizers are also popular as acne skin care products. You might need to try a few, before you zero-in on the acne scar removal cream that is effectual for you. If nothing seems to work, you should contact a skin doctor.

On-prescription acne treatment products are the ones that are prescribed by a skin doctor. This can include ointments that can be put on on the affected region or oral antibiotics or simply any topical treatment. A dermatologist might also suggest a minor surgical procedure to remove the contents of pustules. Nevertheless, never try to squeeze or do this by yourself, it can result in irreversible impairment of your skin. Your physician might also prescribe a hormone-based treatment. Such acne skin care products are known to be very effective in some cases.

Favorite Skin Care Products


These are some of my favorite skin care products. I use them all pretty much on a daily basis. The only I don’t use daily is the Neutrogena Oil Eliminating Astringent (blue toner), because it is skin drying. It is recommended to use that about twice weekly and it does actually work wonders. Sometimes I’ll use it in the morning and apply a moisturizer afterwards or before I go to bed. The Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner is the best thing I’ve ever discovered! Is it really getting discontinued?. Seriously, gimme a break, lol! Every awesome thing I find is getting discontinued -___- it’s heartbreaking! But my skin is so much better from using this stuff. I rarely break out too, but I don’t know if it’s from using these products cause I’ve pretty much always had clear skin. BUT a monster always finds its way on my skin from time to time, lol. The St. Ives scrub does its job too. I use it when I’m in the shower and scrub all the way down my neck. It gets rid of blackhead and dead skin. It’s amazing how soft your skin feels after. Makes you think what the heck was on your skin to begin with…(ew, ew, ew!) I use the Olay Firming Cream EVERY single night!! I love that stuff!! My skin is so firm and I started using it about 3 months ago.. maybe?

That little teeny container has lasted me forever and a little of the product goes a long way. I’m down to probably the last use though. Next up is the Jergens Natural Glow Firming body lotion which makes my skin look so glowy… and tan, lol! I’m sort of already semi tan since I am from South America, but this just evens out my tone and gives me more of a tan look. It doesn’t make me look like I just sprayed on some fake tan or bronzer. I usually put it on after I shave my legs and let it dry before I get dressed. Lucky for me, I don’t have too shave too often since my hair grows slowwwww so I usually reapply three times a week after showers. I do a body scrub to sort of start all over again after I shave because the color can start to build up and you don’t wanna look all orange, girl. Lastly is the Ion Deep Repair Leave In Treatment for hair.. obviously, lol. I have to use it especially since I color my hair often thanks to having to retouch my red hair like 2-3 times a month, (see blog below for how I maintain my red hurrr). It’s worked wonders for my hair though. It says to apply to towel dried hair but I just let my hair sit in the towel for awhile and then just pump some in my hand and rub onto my hair while it’s still a bit damp. It smells SO good too! If I had to pick only two items from all of the ones mentioned, I’d probably go with the pore refining toner and the firming cream because I can definitely tell the difference after continuous use! What do you use?
