Home remedies for dry skin end the cracking and flaking fast!

Home remedies for Dry Skin help return that youthful look.

Our bodies and skin are 70% water. Heating units in homes and offices, fireplaces and hair dyers are just some of the things that can make skin dry and brittle. Coffee, soda, processed and sugar laden foods and alcohol also can dry us out and make us look old with rubbery, cracked and wrinkled skin before our time.

Deodorants and deodorant soaps, cosmetics and even over bathing can all contribute to this condition. Our hands and face often suffer the most because in addition to all of the above they are also most often exposed to all the environmental conditions that can contribute to dry skin.
