Heal Dermatitis The Natural Way Overnight

Aug 18, 2007
Skin doesn't become dry because it lacks oil, but because it lacks moisture. Dry skin is easily treatable today when you know how to take care of it both inside and out.

The outermost layer of epidermis consists of 25 to 30 layers of dead cells. The dermis is structurally divided into two areas: a superficial area adjacent to the epidermis, called the papillary region, and a deep thicker area known as the reticular region. Our skin also receives less blood flow and lower gland activity than the other organs in our body.

Serious skin complications, including a dry skin condition, can arise for people with type 2 diabetes. Dry skin can be due to a genetic condition but it's not common. The symptoms most associated with dry skin are: scaling, which is the visible peeling of the outer skin layer, itching, and cracks in the skin.

Skin gets exposed to the elements, especially in winter, causing it to become drier. 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. Nutritional deficiencies, especially deficiencies of vitamin A and the B vitamins, can also contribute to dry skin or result in a chronic dry skin condition that's not relieved by anything else.

The next time you want to have a snack, instead of junk food, help your skin - have an apple, orange, peach, pear, banana, plum, grapes, cherries, berries, cantaloupe or any other fresh fruit. Eat high-fiber snacks like raw nuts, raw seeds, fresh fruit or dried fruit like dates, and figs. Drink freshly extracted carrot juice, if you can, every day; carrot juice is an excellent cleanser for the liver, great for the skin and contains a great deal of nutrients, all beneficial for dry skin, eczema, acne, zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and other breakouts.

Apply cool compresses to any itchy areas. Use bath oils and moisturizers, or better yet, coconut oil, daily. Avoid all products that have an alcohol base.

Use a thin layer of coconut oil under your make-up, if you wear it, to moisturize and soften your skin throughout the day. After a soothing bath or shower at night just before bedtime, apply a thin layer of coconut oil over your entire body; it'll even last on your skin through your shower in the morning. Use coconut oil to remove your make-up at night, like I do; it leaves a fine layer of oil to nourish your skin all night long; but better yet, apply more coconut oil.

Apply coconut oil to irritated or chapped lips as well; it's edible, so it's safe and so healing to the lips. If you have acne, eczema or any type of dermatitis coconut oil will treat and quickly heal these skin conditions too.

Many skin conditions can be converted into clear, healthy skin by using natural home remedies. Sunlight, water and air play an important role in keeping the skin healthy.

Following some of the above treatments, your dry skin should be well on its way to recovery. Make sure to call your skin doctor or dermatologist when you have any open cuts or sores from scratching that won't heal. If your dry skin lasts for a long time and is itchy or feels hot when you touch it, see your doctor.
