There are some moisturizers that can be easily made at home to help moisturize dry skin, leaving it more beautiful and smooth. There are many natural ingredients that can be used because they contain moisturizing properties such as coconut, oats, coconut oil and aloe vera.

It is important to apply the cream daily after the bath, in addition to drinking 1.5 to 2 L of water per day. For best results, exfoliation can be done on the body and face at least 2 times a month to help remove dead skin cells and hydrate the skin more easily.

Moisturizing coconut cream with oats

The coconut promotes the hydration of the skin and, for this reason, it is a great ingredient to be used in creams for the treatment of dry skin. In addition to this, when it is associated with oats, it is possible to nourish and protect the skin because oats have properties that help the renewal of skin cells, contributing to a smooth, soft and nourished skin.

  • 1 tablespoon of oats;
  • 1 cup of hot milk

Preparation mode

Beat all the ingredients in the blender until it becomes a uniform cream and place in all areas where the skin is quite dry. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

Aloe vera or also known as aloe vera is an excellent natural moisturizer, in addition to having disinfectant properties in case there is a small wound on the skin. See other properties of aloe. In the case of coconut oil, it is a rich source of vitamin E, which is important to keep the skin hydrated.

Another excellent option for dry skin is Macadamia or Rosa Mosqueta oil, which has properties that nourish the skin deeply and help to reduce stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles in the skin.

8 Tips to keep the skin well hydrated

To properly moisturize dry skin, which is characterized by a dull skin with a tendency to peel, we recommend:

  1. Use good quality liquid hydrant soap;
  2. Avoid very long baths in very hot water;
  3. Do not rub the skin with the towel, gently drying the whole body;
  4. Always apply a good moisturizer for dry skin throughout the body, respecting the manufacturer's instructions;
  5. Exfoliate the skin at least 2 times a month to remove dead cells and facilitate hydration of the skin;
  6. Avoid solutions based on alcohol;
  7. Avoid the use of oils alone, as they do not always hydrate the skin properly;
  8. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.

In addition to this, it is also important to avoid sun exposure and wind, as they can also leave the skin dry, it is important to use sunscreen mainly on the face or in case of going to the beach, and properly cover the face during the winter in case there is wind, for example.
