Anyone who suffers from dry skin knows that it’s not a pleasant experience. They also know it takes a lot of trial and error to discover what products work best to combat this annoying condition.

When it comes to treatments for dryness, you have two options: natural and synthetic. It’s likely best to first try natural remedies for dry skin because you are less likely to experience adverse reactions such as allergic reactions or breakouts with these treatments.

Some topical natural treatments include:
olive oil
coconut oil
Shea butter

All of these ingredients can be used alone or they can be found in many naturally-inspired products at your local drug or department store.

There are other things you can do to reduce skin dryness including:
-drinking plenty of water
-wearing moisturizer in the sun and cold weather
-taking omega supplements
-eating plenty of fruits and vegetables
-using a humidifier in your home.

Dry skin is easy to treat and manage if you know what you’re doing but it may take some time and effort to find out what treatments work best for you.
