Dry skin solutions

The skin around the mouth and chin is very thin and delicate. This is why it is not uncommon to see the first signs of dry skin in these areas. From what you have described it seems that you are suffering from both dry skin as well as winter acne. Both these conditions often occur together and can be treated as long as you stick to a daily skin care regimen. You will need to cleanse your face often in order to ensure that there is no buildup of sebum which is what causes acne. On the other hand this would leave your skin dry and so you will have to moisturize it regularly to prevent excessive drying. There are several home remedies for winter acne that will help to get rid of this problem.

Winter acne can be particularly annoying as washing your face with a cosmetic face wash just dries your skin further. In addition to this, creams that suit your skin during summer may not agree with you in winter. This is something you have to accept and try to work around. For one, you will have to start deep -cleansing your skin at least once a week. Deep -cleansing your skin will help to get rid of any hardened sebum within your skin and will help to keep your skin free of acne. You will need to use a cleansing face pack. Add about one tablespoon of fuller's earth to a small bowl and add enough lemon juice to it to make it a thick paste. Apply this paste to your entire face and allow it to dry completely and then wash it off with warm water. Lemon juice is citric in nature and will help to dissolve sebum while fuller's earth helps to extract and absorb the excess sebum from within your skin. If you have sensitive skin, you can use tomato juice instead of lemon juice as it is much milder. It is best to use this method after you have steamed your face or had a hot shower. After you have rinsed off your face pack, you can apply a moisturizer to prevent excessive drying. You can mix a little coconut milk with a few drops of olive oil and one drop of lemon oil. This homemade moisturizer will help to keep your skin hydrated as well as prevent acne. Coconut milk is rich in several vitamin, minerals and fats that are essential for healthy skin. Therefore you should use this moisturizer on a daily basis for smooth blemish-free skin.
