Dry Skin and Natural Home Remedies On Budget Saves Money

By Carol Giambri

Do people who live in damp and dry areas (states) both get dry skin? It doesn't always have to do with your location but your body.  Actually anyone can have dry skin.

Young Kids and Babies Get Dry Skin

My husband used to complain about his dry, itchy back.  It's gone.  All of a sudden with one sneeze the other day he told me he is "allergic" to cold weather. I laughed.  I've heard of people allergic to foods and chemicals, but never cold temperatures.  Give me spring all year round and I'm very happy.

Peeling the skin and shedding the layers…

Talking to my New York friend recently she shared her dry skin story with me.  It has a tendency to peel.  I've heard of that when you get sunburned but not this way.  Ah, I did have a flashback after she shared this.  I remember my father leaving tons of residue after his shower in the tub.  It looked like foam.  Shaving foam! Maybe he was shedding the layers of his skin?  He's in heaven now so guessing here.

"Peeling Layers" of Onions

Are you confused?

Maybe you heard your doctor say your dry skin needs more water, others told you oil and lastly another voice said supplements.  Who do you believe?

Maybe try drinking more water, more oil, not fried however, or take Vitamin A, B, C and D.  Perhaps try all. 

Even my dog drinks tons of water but eats fresh organic veggies, she hates.  She also gets oil.

Rome wasn't built in a day but takes a little while to see results using natural remedies. Below are some.  Let me know how they worked. 

Save money using natural home remedies from the garden…

My Organic Garden Cucumber

Cucumber – Grate and apply on face; juice is good for skin, refreshes and tightens the skin. 

Banana and papaya – Puree a banana and a papaya, peach or avocado; apply to skin; leave on 20 minutes; rinse with warm water; massage in a natural oil such as olive oil or jojoba.  Jojoba is expensive and sold at health food stores, but it does go a far way.  If you use olive oil on your salad then you can save money and use it on your face.   

PapayaTake the pulp of papaya and apply to the skin.  It softens dead skin cells and helps remove them.

Treat your skin from the "inside out" by eating……

Have you tried adding into your diet essential fatty acids, foods rich in magnesium, vitamin c, and beta carotene feeding your dry skin.  Oranges, mangoes, carrots, and for people who eat salmon and fatty fish this may help.

All Smiles Without Dry Skin

Reflecting and Acting…

Got dry feet?  Give yourself an olive oil massage.  Eat things like mangoes and carrots.  Also look at labels for soaps and shampoos going on your skin.  Does this make sense to have you do something with this information? Your next step may be a foot massage or more water. 

Seen my free offer (maybe offers too)?  It helps us stay connected.  Can you please do me a favor?  Share me with your friends and family.  It's fun building our family of friends here together.

Great Carol!!! Love natural remedies, thanks!
Don't know if I like the image of the skin cells in the bath, looking like foam! LOL!!

Carol Giambri December 9, 2011 at 10:21 am

Tara, thanks for comment. Once my friend brought up her dry skin problem I see maybe my father had same problem. Is this better description: shaving FOAM?

Jennifer Bennett December 9, 2011 at 11:37 am

Love this Carol!  So good to know that we can use natural remedies to take care of the skin!  Thanks for sharing! 

Solvita December 9, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Love it Carol! You are providing us with so many healthy options to improve the condition of our dry skin! Thank you! :)

Carol Giambri December 10, 2011 at 11:11 am

Jennifer, so much yucky chemicals out there I want to expose people to many that come from nature! Thanks for sharing.

Carol Giambri December 10, 2011 at 11:12 am

Solvita, so many options to caring for our body, including the skin.  Nothing like exposing people to more options to choose from especially my desire choice: natural. Thanks for your sweet comment.

Heather December 10, 2011 at 10:17 pm

as the gal who sells skin care with lots of very helpful chemicals I have to say not all chemicals are bad and many are super helpful.  Having said that I LOVE your natural approach— mind if I link to this article from my skin care blog?

Carol Giambri December 10, 2011 at 11:36 pm

Heather, thanks for comment. So far I have not heard of any chemicals that are good yet.  Since I am far from an expert with so many chemicals may google "bad" ingredients for skin and see if any of what you use are just that–bad. I keep it super simple to not confuse my mind.  Where is your skin care blog Heather?

Carol Giambri December 10, 2011 at 11:38 pm

P.S. I just googled these words and maybe a good starter: "list of bad cosmetic ingredients".  Hope this helps.

Marie Leslie December 11, 2011 at 7:56 am

Thanks, Carol.  I'm sure you know this is just what I need right now.  I am so much drier here in Colorado even than I was in New Mexico which is a suprise.  I will definitely be trying some of your remedies.

Dr. Daisy Sutherland December 11, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Awesome job Carol! You know me and my natural remedies and so glad that you are sharing some with us all. I too suffered from dry skin but with the foods I eat and yes the application of coconut and olive oil, the dry skin is all gone! Thanks again:)

Carol Giambri December 11, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Dr. Daisy, what a great testimony about the importance of oil into our body and on our skin. Wow.  Thanks for sharing and super impressed.  Going the "natural" way always excites me!  Was oils taken internally or applied to skin?  Wowsy!  Love your sharing!

Jennifer December 13, 2011 at 11:37 am

Love all the natural remedies Carol, thanks!  Dry skin (especially on my kids) is one of the things I hate most about winter.  I won't use any of those lotions with the toxic chemicals in them, but I doubt they would work anyway.  I know the high-priced natural ones aren't strong enough for us in the winter, so thanks, I'm off to try some of your suggestions.  We already use coconut oil a lot and love it, just haven't thought to try it on dry skin for some reason.

Carol Giambri December 14, 2011 at 11:20 am

I can’t wait to hear about the results for some of the suggestions I shared. Are the kids getting coconut oil in their smoothies too? Are they eating some good fats like avocado? Thanks for sharing. I bet you and I would have a blast together talking healthy eating and living.
