What Are Money Saving Cures For Dry Skin This Winter?

Its not uncommon to suffer from dry skin due to harsh winter weather. Some people think that in order to combat the constant cold, they need to go out and purchase various moisturizers. However, that is not always the case. Believe it or not, you can moisturize your dry skin with materials that you might already have in your home right now!

Hang up your coat and put away your wallet, because in this post we would like to share some money saving cures for dry skin this winter.

Cold Cost Cure #1: Body Lotion

Body lotions containing lactic acid are excellent moisturizers. Brush your skin with the body brush and then apply an over-the-counter body lotion with lactic acid such as Amlactin. It is inexpensive and you will notice a significant difference within a week. 

Cold Cost Cure #2: Olive Oil

Olive oil can be used to keep cuticles pliable. Bacitracin ointment, which can be purchased over-the-counter, can be applied to splint cuticles until they are healed. Carmex can then be used to keep the cuticles soft. 

Cold Cost Cure #3: Milk Bath

Mix together 1/4 cup of mil and 3/4 cup of water. Use a washcloth and apply to dry areas for 10-15 minutes. If your entire body is dry and itchy, add 1 cup of powdered milk to you bath and soak for 20 minutes. 

Cold Cost Cure #4: DIY Lip Balm

Mix together 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of water. Apply the mixture aesthetically on lips and wait 3 minutes before rinsing off. 

We hope these inexpensive remedies will help you fend off dry skin this season!
