Home Remedy for Dry Patches on Face

In my area, we’ve had a very cold winter. The cold outside temperatures and the dry indoor heat was causing my face to have very dry patches. The dry patches were so bad that the areas were wrinkling. I began to fear permanent deep wrinkles setting in.

I tried various creams and lotions and nothing was helping. If anything, my face became more irritated. Since the dry patches on my face started early in the winter season, I knew I needed to find something that would work. With a few months to go in the winter season, I was afraid I’d end up looking like Frankenstein or worse.

I use olive oil for cooking since it is a good fat and beneficial in many ways. Little did I know that olive oil would be the remedy I needed for the dry patches on my face. I rubbed a small amount on the dry patches and the next day I saw an improvement. Within three days the dry patches were no longer there.

I was ecstatic that the olive oil worked, but also impressed that it wasn’t gooey on my skin after it dried and it also did not irritate my face in any way. I’ve even been using a very small amount as a moisturizer under foundation. It seems to give my face a dewy glow without looking oily.

    A little about me:
    -My reason for buying the made from earth Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer: to use as a moisturizer for my face and treat ends of my hair
    -My skin type: Combination (Oily t-zone (acne prone) and normal cheeks and chin)
    -No skin conditions and No allergies

    First two days were fine. Made my skin smooth and hydrated. On the third day, I had spots on both cheeks and chin (itchy red pimples and dry flakey cheeks mainly around those itchy pimples). I thought it was odd, so, I tried using a clay mask to get rid of the spots, and I noticed that no oil of any kind came from around the breakout area. So, I stopped using the Made from Earth moisturizer since it was the newest facial product that I tried. Then, I tried my old facial cleanser (Note: Cleanser that I used while using Made from Earth was Botanics deep skin brightening cleanser. The one I switched to was Clean and Clear Deep cream cleanser) and it cleared up the dry spots and blemishes overnight by about 40%. So, I tried Made from Earth again, and my face didn’t break out. It kept it very hydrated and works great!

    What I use it for now:

    - Nighty moisturizer for face
    - Lip balm
    - Cuticles
    - Hand Moisturizer
    - Heal scars (works best on recent scars from what I’ve seen)
    - Eye cream
    - Treatment for ends of hair

    My verdict: LOVE IT! I’m probably going to use this for the rest of my life so long as they make it as is or better. So, I definitely recommend Made from Earth Vitamin Moisturizer, but only if you have a good enough cleanser!
