Your crocodile skin is itchy. You are curling and licking your cracking lips, trying to hide them.  Let’s not even start with the recurrent eczema.  

Aren't you feeling a little dry? I am.

Let’s stop this MADNESS now.


1st step: Protect your skin

You want to form a barrier to prevent any further dryness, dirt, water loss and reduce the size of your pores. You want SMOOOOTH skin.

To accomplish all of these actions you need a good moisturizer. Moisturize your skin and lips at least 30 minutes before going to bed or after a warm shower/bath while your skin is still damp.

2nd step: hydrate your skin.

Drink approximately eight glasses of water everyday. Your water can also be found in your daily fruits and veggies.  Avoid tap water "hard water" if possible because, it contains free radicals.

3rd step: Limit your intake of diuretics.

It is not armful to drink wine, coffee, and/or  pops once in a while but  remember MODERATION is the key. The constant intake of these products will cause water loss,  dehydration and may follow with more severe ailments later on.

The following herbs or oils are good to treat dry skin. Make a concoction using 2 to 4 tbsp of the dried or fresh herbsmentioned below. Place a towel over your head and steam your face for 15 minutes to open your pores. Rinse your face withcold water and dry your face  delicately with a clean towel. Then moisturize, moisturize, and finally moisturize.moisturize your skin
The moisturizer can be natural, an oil or a clay mask.
