what can i do about dry patches on my face?

Patches on the face can be caused by various reasons. Too much exposure to the elements and to sunlight can cause the skin of the face to develop patches. Some women find that pregnancy causes hormonal changes in their body, resulting in patches of dry skin on their face. Some kind of medications can also cause dry patches. If you are allergic to certain food items then these can be the cause of the dry patches. Lack of hygiene is another reason for these patches. Nutritional imbalances, a poor diet and a bad lifestyle are other reasons that can cause dry skin in patches.

What you can do is to ensure that you eat right by including fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. Drinking lots of water will keep your body hydrated throughout the day. Fruit juices of all kinds, carrot and beet juice are other things that will help your skin improve.

You can also try these simple home remedies. Warm one tablespoon of sesame oil. Massage this into the dry patches. Leave it on your face for ten to fifteen minutes and then clean it with a damp cloth. You can also use aloe vera juice in the same way.

Add one teaspoon each of vinegar and honey to a cup of hot tea. Drink this twice a day till the dry patches disappear.
