Dry skins are generally flaky to look at, appear to be dull around the cheeks and eyes. They need continuous moisturizing. Instead of using a soap that tends to dry out the skin further, wash the face with oatmeal and milk. Milk provides nourishment to the skin and oatmeal gently exfoliates. If you need some extra moisturizing then make a natural face mask for dry skin with a combination of ten almonds, four tablespoons creamy milk, two spoons of oatmeal, two spoons of china clay, one mashed avocado and juice of half a lemon.
Apply this paste on face and neck and then leave it for twenty minutes. Wipe off with cotton wool moistened with cold milk. Now Splash some cold water and also apply a water-based light moisturizer.
Pack for Combination skin
combination type skin is typically oily around nose and forehead while dry around the cheeks and eyes. So dab the face with cold milk and cleanse the T-zone with an astringent.
