how can I cure dry, rough and cracked skin?

Alternative Cure for Dry and Cracked Skin

There are several ways in which you can start. Do not wash your face with tap water. Use mineral water. Good skin will be easy to achieve if you wash it often – but gently. Use good quality oils and moisturizers. Experiment with mild products after consulting with your skin specialist. If possible, buy pH neutral products to treat your skin with. Avoid using regular, normal soap on your face at all costs.

There are some great home-made packs that you could use to. Egg yolk, olive oil, lime juice, honey, and rose water – all these are great ingredients to mix and match to make your own skin-treatment pack. Use once a day and try various different combinations till you find something that suits you best.

Protect your skin from extreme temperatures and weather. Drink loads of water – at least 10 glasses a day. Avoid hot water while you are bathing. Use room temperature or cold water for best results. Avoid any direct & harsh sunlight. Apply sun screen in exposed areas, since it is the sun that's responsible for most of the dryness to attack our skin.

Avoid (as much as possible) smoking and smoke-filled places. Smoking deprives the skin of oxygen that's essential for its health. Always keep chamomile, lavender, sandalwood and ylang-ylang extracts and oils handy.
