Dry skin can be caused due to many reasons like malnutrition, sebaceous obstructions, wrong medication, fungal infection, etc. As a symptom, you might notice thin flakes peeling off from your skin leaving it without radiance and smoothness. Treating dry skin and taking care of it is necessary because if left untreated, it can lead to conditions like eczema.
There are many over the counter lotions, ointments, and creams in the market, but most of them do more harm than good. Hence, you should focus on alternative ways to bid good bye to dry skin. Ayurveda is one such promising option to treat rough and patchy skin. So without a further ado, let’s discuss the simple ayurvedic dry skin treatment that you can try at home!
Ayurveda has a lot of faith in Abhyanga that is a self-massage treatment of your body. You have to massage the body thoroughly with essential oils like coconut, sesame, almond or castor. Leave the oil on your skin for half an hour, to seep into the layers of your dry skin, before you take a shower. For getting outstanding results heat the oil and then apply. Abhyanga helps in moisturising the skin, making it supple and stimulating blood circulation. All of these reduce the chances of dry skin.
- Aloe Vera
Filled with so many good qualities, Aloe Vera is a saviour for dry patches. Its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties reduce skin rashes or eruptions that often make the skin lackluster and dry. At the same time, the cooling effect of Aloe Vera gel heals itchiness.
A well-known medicinal herb, neem has similar properties to that of Aloe Vera. When you apply a paste made with neem leaves and rose water on your dry skin, the goodness of neem seeps into your skin. It removes the dead skin cells, retaining radiance to the skin. Simultaneously, it also opens up clogged pores helping in the stimulation of natural oil in the skin layers.
Calendula is a flower that is rich in natural flavonoids and oils that make the skin moisturised and healthy-looking. Making a paste of the flower petals and applying it regularly helps your skin to grow supple and beautiful.
By nature, sandalwood is oily and when you apply sandalwood paste mixed with rose water on your skin you can well assess the impressive results. The natural oils make your dry skin recover from itchiness and glows with natural radiance while doing away with dead skin cells.
