6 Natural Cures for Dry Skin


Beauty, Hair, Lifestyle | March 30, 2012

#3:  Make a homemade skin scrub.  Economical and effective, a combo of sugar and any oil you may have around the kitchen makes a rich, nourishing body scrub for dry skin, according to Gabriel.  Simply mix equal amounts of fine brown sugar and oil, and rub on using light circular motions.  For an extra dose of vitamins and minerals, add a tablespoon of honey. Pecnikov adds lemon juice to her recipe.  Make sure to shower thoroughly afterwards!

Maintaining soft skin through the winter months doesn’t have to cost a fortune on expensive moisturizing products. Take some time to cater to your skin with these easy homemade treatments.

Lazy Moves That Boost Your Health

Boost Your Immunity with a Massage There is some science behind the idea of a healing touch. Studies done at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and at the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle found that a 45-minute massage brought on a major spike in lymphocytes, white blood cells that fight bacteria and viruses. It also decreased substances that cause inflammation and trigger allergies and asthma, and it lessened the production of a hormone that is linked with increasing stress levels. To find a trained massage therapist near you, check out the American Massage Therapy Association. Massage may not be covered by your insurance, even for medical reasons, but an affordable option is to find a teaching school near you. Relaxing massages can cost only $35 for 50 minutes, and students are under the guidance of a licensed massage therapist.

Getting (and staying) does take work….most of the time. However, you can still find ways to maintain tip-top health…without exerting all your energy.

2. Stay on a Schedule "Establish a strict bedtime and awakening time. Expose yourself to bright light in the morning -- within 5 minutes of waking, go outside and take a walk for 30 minutes. Avoid any bright light for 2 or 3 hours before bedtime, or exercise within 3 hours. Avoid heavy meals, large amounts of fluid and alcohol -- it might help you fall asleep, but it fragments sleep and cuts down on the amount of deep sleep." -Clete Kushida, M.D., director, Stanford Center For Human Sleep Research
