Improve Dry Skin Damage Overnight Naturally

Aug 17, 2007
Only a lucky few of us have 'normal' skin; the rest of us have dry, oily or combination skin; if dryness is your skin problem, read on. The use of natural or synthetic cosmetics to cover the appearance of the face and condition of the skin, like covering of pores and blackheads, is common among many cultures.

Skin is one of the most important parts of the body; it's our largest organ. The dermis is the layer of skin beneath the epidermis that consists of connective tissue and cushions the body from stress and strain. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin.

Dry skin happens more often in the winter when the cold air outside and heated air inside cause the humidity to be low. Bathing or showering too frequently, especially if one is using harsh soaps, may contribute to dry skin. When the oil glands do not supply enough lubrication to the skin, the skin becomes dehydrated.

Serious skin complications, including a dry skin condition, can arise for people with type 2 diabetes. If you break out on the skin around your eyes, it could be the shellac in your mascara; buy a shellac-free mascara like Ecco Bella's. Skin gets exposed to the elements, especially in winter, causing it to become drier.

Get 20-30 minutes of sunshine daily on your arms and/or legs; sunshine triggers the body's production of Vitamin D3, which is essential to having healthy skin. Eat at least two organic apples a day while working to clear up your skin; apples are good for skin health - organic so you can eat pesticide-free skin (most of the apple pectin is in the skin), which helps with constipation too. Eating fruits that are red or orange in color will help improve you skin health and help to prevent acne.

Apply cool compresses to any itchy areas. Take fewer baths or showers; they'll dry out your skin even more. Try using a humidifier if the air is dry and you have a severe skin condition.

Use can use bath oils and moisturizers every day, but coconut oil has the added power of healing. When you buy coconut oil, make sure you get the kind that hasn't been refined, processed and deodorized. I buy coconut oil by the gallon; it's cheaper for a whole gallon of coconut oil than a small jar of department store, name-brand moisturizer.

Use a thin layer of coconut oil under your make-up, if you wear it, to moisturize and soften your skin throughout the day. Dry skin contributes to fine lines and wrinkles; coconut oil helps prevent the onset by keeping the skin soft and supple.

Functions of the skin are disturbed when it's not clean; it becomes more easily damaged, the release of antibacterial compounds decreases and it's more prone to develop infections. The skin supports its own ecosystem of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning.

Make sure to call your skin doctor or dermatologist when you have any open cuts or sores from scratching that won't heal. If you're still worried about your skin, or the problems persist, see your skin doctor. Continue using coconut oil and you'll see the benefits in good, clear skin, free of dryness and other skin conditions.
