Natural Skincare Recipes For Flaky Skin

How to Fix Flaky Skin the Natural Way

For many people, every time the seasons change, peeling skin rears its flaky, red, itchy, crappy-looking-under-makeup head. There are serums and moisturizers with long ingredient lists designed to help, but it's easier, cheaper, and a lot more Earth-friendly to go the natural route. Your kitchen holds plenty of flake-zapping solutions. So to find out how you can smooth and hydrate without making a trip to the drugstore, just keep reading.

  • Honey is your friend. It's a natural exfoliant, but unlike a scrub, it's skin-calming and antimicrobial. Your flakes come off without further irritating and reddening your skin, and delicate, newly exposed skin doesn't get awash in acne bacteria.
  • Avocados are amazingly moisturizing and cooling. Mash one up and keep it in the fridge, then apply for 20 minutes while you're up and about before work or when you get home at night.
  • Oatmeal is super-soothing. Make about a cup, let it cool, and then use it as a 15-minute mask to help calm redness and soften skin.
  • Parsley is a great treatment for redness and inflammation, reducing the tightness that leads to flaking. Chop some up as finely as you can (or throw it in a food processor if you've got one) and apply it as a cooling poultice to dry, itchy, or red spots.
