Natural Remedies for Oily and Dry Skin

The two most common problems that women have in regard to their skin is it being either too oily or too dry. Having oily skin often makes your complexion look shiny, it can also lead to acne breakouts. On the other hand, when you have dry skin, it can look scaly and in worst cases lead to cracking. There are various over the counter products to treat these different problems but because skin can be sensitive to many commercial products, you may have greater success using natural home remedies. Using natural ingredients is considered to be safe and effective. If it works for you, make them a part of your daily skin care routine.
There are a number of natural methods to treat oily skin and one of the most highly recommended is Aloe Vera.  It is very good for absorbing oil and it helps calm the sebaceous glands in your face. You can try using Aloe Vera gel which is available in almost any drug or health store at a very reasonable price.  Apply it generously after washing your face and let it dry.  It is advisable to do this two to three times each day.  Refrigerated Aloe Vera gel is very cool and refreshing when applied.
Milk is one of the best home remedies for dry skin.  Milk has always been used to treat tight, dry skin because it is rich in moisturizing properties.  Place a cup of whole milk in a jar and add a teaspoon each of Chamomile and Lavender. Leave this in the fridge for three to four days.  At time of application, use two tablespoons of the mixture and massage into your complexion.
Make sure to rinse your face well following treatment because milk can breed bacteria.
