How to Heal Dry Skin: 4 Things You Haven’t Tried


Published December 20, 2022

Do you often find your skin feeling tight, especially after showering or washing your face? Do you have flaky patches, or does your skin generally look dull and lackluster? If so, you may be dealing with dry skin. While it’s possible to have dry skin all over your body, it’s most common on the face, hands, and legs. And if you’re looking for solutions to dry skin, you’ve come to the right place.

What Causes Dry Skin?

Understanding the root cause of your dry skin is the first step in finding the best way to heal it. Then, depending on the cause, a variety of things can help. Here are some of the most common causes of dry skin:

Learn the Remedy for Dry Skin and Hair Loss

Goodbye, Dry Skin — Hello, Healthy Glow

Now that you know some of the most common causes of dry skin, it’s time to find out how to heal it. Of course, we all know that staying hydrated and using a high-quality moisturizer is essential. Still, you can do a few other things to give your dry skin the TLC it needs.

Here are four things you probably haven’t tried yet, but definitely should.

1. Oatmeal Baths

Oatmeal baths have long been a natural remedy for dry, irritated skin. The avenanthramides in oats have anti-inflammatory properties, and the oat bran helps to slough off dead skin cells. Oats also contain a type of soluble fiber called beta-glucan, which has been shown to help heal wounds and protect against infection.

To prepare an oatmeal bath, grind one to two cups of oats into a fine powder using a food processor or blender. Next, add the oats to a tub of warm water (not hot) and stir gently to allow the powder to disperse evenly. Soak in the bath for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

2. Eat Food with Antioxidants and Omega-3s

Antioxidants are essential for keeping our skin looking young and healthy. These nutrients help to protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can cause inflammation and premature aging. Omega-3 fatty acids are an antioxidant that is especially beneficial for dry skin. Unfortunately, our bodies cannot produce omega-3s on their own, so we must get them through our diet. 

Fortunately, many delicious foods are rich in antioxidants and omega-3s. One of the best diets for including these in your life is the top-rated Mediterranean diet. It has plenty of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and omega-3-rich fish. Other good sources of antioxidants and omega-3s include green tea, dark chocolate, and nuts.

3. Embrace the Power of Olive Oil

When used topically, olive oil can help to soothe and heal dry, irritated skin. It is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that nourish and protect the skin. In addition, and contrary to popular belief, olive oil has a low risk of clogging pores, with a low comedogenic rating.

There are many ways to incorporate olive oil into your skincare routine. You can use it as a standalone product or with other natural ingredients. Here are two simple strategies for using olive oil to get rid of dry skin:

4. Hormone Replacement Therapy

If you are dealing with dry skin and hair loss due to the natural decline of hormones as you age, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may help. HRT can replenish the hormones your body is no longer producing, improving dry skin and hair loss. It might sound complicated, but it’s a straightforward process that begins with hormone testing from the comfort of your own home. Once you have your results, you can work with a healthcare specialist to create a personalized HRT plan. And don’t worry – you won’t have to travel long distances for treatment. Instead, HRT can be done entirely online through telemedicine appointments.

Final Thoughts

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for dry skin, these four tips are a great place to start. By incorporating some (or all!) of these strategies into your skincare routine, you can get rid of dry skin, keep it at bay, and achieve healthy, radiant skin.
