Dry skin is the skin that exposes a dried up appearance because it is not being able to preserve enough moisture. The beholder of such a skin always feels dryness, particularly after washing or cleaning. To regain the lost moisture and feel more smooth and hydrated, he/she use lotion or skin cream. If you are also facing similar problem, then you can fight it with effective natural cures. There are a number of herbal remedies for dry skin such as:
Herbal tea: One must drink herbal tea that contains vata-balancing ingredients. A lemon should be squeezed into the tea while drinking it early in the morning in the empty stomach.
