2 DIY Recipes for Dry Skin Problems

Winter brings the cold and dry weather which makes the skin flaky and dry. It sucks out the smoothness and moisture in the skin. Even though winter is not the only cause of dry skin; there are some other factors which are associated with dry skin such as nutritional deficiency, aging, and much more. Some of us may not take dry skin issues seriously because there are numbers of moisturizers and lotions available in the market. But, do you know that those kinds of lotions contain chemical ingredients which may make the dry skin conditions worse?

So, what is the solution to treat dry skin? Well, today on OiB, I am going to reveal natural DIY recipes for dry skin problems. If you have dry skin, you can use these recipes to bring back the skin’s moisture.

Milk

Milk has been the secret for beautiful skin for centuries. Even the famous Cleopatra is known to bath with milk which results in the healthy and glowing skin. Milk contains lactic acid which helps skin exfoliating and preserves the skin’s pH levels. For dry skin issue, milk works like magic because it is an excellent moisturizer. For deep moisturizer, I usually use:

  • Mix a teaspoon or two teaspoons of milk cream with some drops of lemon juice. Rub the mixture on the hands, legs, and other dry skin areas. Leave the mixture for some minutes and then take a shower.
  • Combine three or four tablespoons of flour and some milk cream into a thick paste. Apply the mixture in hands, legs, face, and other dry skin areas and leave the mixture for 15 minutes. I usually rinse the milk mask with lukewarm water and repeat the step once a day.

Oil therapy

When it comes to dry skin natural remedies, the best treatment that you can get is oil therapy. Applying oil or essential oil into the dry skin area will help restore the moisture in the skin. Oil therapy is not limited to certain oil selection only; in fact, you can use any oil that is available in the kitchen such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, and much more. I love applying olive oil or grape seed oil and give light massage to the body and then head for the shower. Heating the oil before applying to the body is also a good choice if you have some more free time. After the shower, I also apply a light moisturizer or sunscreen for sunscreen prevention.

What to avoid?

When having dry skin, there are some points to avoid which are using scented soap and also avoid alcohol and caffeine. Scented soap and detergent are known for having irritant substances which can cause skin dry and irritation. It contains lots of chemical substances compared to the unscented products. In addition, to prevent dry skin, I also limit the alcohol and caffeine consumption because it makes the body dehydration. I drink more plain water to keep the skin healthy and moisturized from within.

Dry skin is indeed annoying; but with the right treatment, you can eliminate it and restore the skin moisture using simple home remedies such as milk and oil therapy.

Have you tried these treatments before? 🙂

The One and Only Green Mango Smoothie

I love smoothies. You can consume several cups of fruits and veggies so quickly and easily, and the format allows your body to absorb the nutrients faster. Isn’t it marvelous?

Green smoothies are my favorite – they provide an amazing morning boost that I can’t do without anymore. Here are a few tips I have picked up since starting my green smoothie journey, with a delicious recipe at the end for you.

  1. Keep It Simple: While you can mix in things like chia seeds, supplements, and yogurt or milk, if you want your body to get the most from a green smoothie, keep your ingredient list to just greens (kale, spinach, lettuce, chard, parsley, etc.), fruit, and juice or water. This is optimal for your digestive tract and allows faster absorption of nutrients.
  2. Chew: Try to chew your smoothie. Sounds a little silly, right? This encourages your mouth to produce saliva, which helps with digestion.
  3. Rotate Greens: When I first started, I only used spinach – it’s so mild and blendable! I learned, though, that greens contain small amount of alkaloids, and you don’t want a build up of the same kind of alkaloids from consuming just kale, or spinach, etc.

TIPS: Using the same greens in a row for a few days is absolutely fine, just try not to go more than a couple weeks without switching otherwise you might experience some digestive upset.

Now for one of my all-time favorite green smoothie combinations: mango, kale, and banana. Mangoes – as well as honey and some seeds – can help clear your skin, are a great source of vitamins E,C, and A, and improve digestion. Kale is high in fiber, iron, calcium, vitamins K, C, and A. And bananas, a classic smoothie ingredient, provide potassium, manganese, vitamin B6, fiber, vitamin C, and…well, the list goes on and on for the nutritional benefits of these three ingredients.

Let me just say, on top of it all, this smoothie tastes amazing!

Green Mango Smoothie

Ready to start? Kitchen time: a few minutes and your healthy drink will be ready to kick-start your day.

4 Ingredients + Water:

  • 1 cup frozen mango

Method:

1. Make fennel frond pesto

First, take off the fennel fronds from the fennel bulb, add it with the grated ginger and garlic along with lemon juice and process it in a food processor whiling pouring olive oil in it.

Note: Process only to make sure that everything gets mixed but you can still see the fronds! (If you don’t have a food processor , use mortar and pestle or a whisk).

Then, it is time to remove the pesto in a bowl and add salt and black pepper to it and mix it.

Slice fennel bulb thinly removing the root and stem. Once done, its mango time 😉 ⇒ Remove the skin of the mangoes and slice off the flesh in the same way as fennel.

2. Mix it all together

In a salad bowl, take the fennel and mangoes slices and dress the salad using the fennel frond pesto. You can more salt if needed. Don’t forget to add the pine nuts on top for the crunchy taste!

I have used it as a salad, you can also chop it slightly smaller size and have it in your tacos. The pesto is also great to be used to grill fish or use in dressing cantaloupe or honey dew salad. It is really versatile.

How to Pamper Your Feet Naturally?

Have you ever heard that most men are attracted by the way the woman keeps her feet?

In case you’re wondering that’s all false, let me tell you that it is true since all my close male friends have admitted to it.

Today on OiB, we are going to discuss how feet grab others attention instantly and what can be done to get the perfect benefit from it for your personality and feet. Oups!

They believe that a woman who takes care of things as petty as her feet is greatly managed. So why not do the following to pamper one’s feet naturally and have the best of both personality and your feet.

  • Employ a DIY manicure (preparing you a step by step infographic very shortly)
  • Apply moisturizers and wear clean cotton socks
  • Relax your feet through different techniques
  • Maintain your feet through dead skin removal, proper nail clipping and massaging
  • Soften your feet soles naturally.

I recall when I finished my first 50km in the tropical forest of Malaysia last year, my feet hurts so bad! I used a few technics listed below to help recover.

All these tips have greatly helped me to have much better skin on my feet and every pair of shoes, every slipper looks good on my feet after proper care. Even the skin is rejuvenated and flushes its pink color to make my feet look enhanced and naturally blooming. This can be done though the following remedies in particular:

Use Toothpaste

Have your own manicure through doing away with yellow nails. Just dab some whitening toothpaste over your nails and let them sit while you watch one of your favorite episodes.

Use Salt and Oils

You can moisturize your feet through by removing dead skin cells. Use coarse salt and mix it with some vegetable oil which shouldn’t dissolve all the way. Some examples are Coconut oil or Carrot Oil, they both works fine. Rub with a pumice stone and rinse to have your pink heels again.

If you need help figuring out which salt to use, feel free to check the relevant article here.

Soak Techniques

Use water to soak your feet for 10 to 20 minutes or add optional honey with milk. Rinse and apply moisturizer. Alternatively, you can also apply a homemade paste to your skin by adding to 0.2 cup of raw honey, rosemary and peppermint solution. Your feet will naturally absorb the paste during your sleeping or rest time.

Use Cuticle Cream

Trim and clip your toe nails and massage using cuticle creams in a circular motion or even use mayonnaise for the same.

Use Milk

You can soften your soles through adding 0.25 cup milk in some water and soaking them for an hour. While all this can pamper your feet greatly, share with us how your feet changed through these remedies or share some of your own tips with us too.

Milk as well as yogurt is a natural exfoliant and helps smooth dry skin. My long-time dried legs are now gone!
