Beauty Tips for Dry skin

Our Skin is so sensitive. Just as we need protection, our skin needs care as well. The kind of care that our skin needs is determined by the type of skin we have. There are four types of skin-normal, oily, dry and sensitive and each type of skin has its own complications. Having a dry skin means experiencing tightness due to lack of moisture and a need for a proper lubricant to re-hydrate it. Many home remedies can help improve your dry flaky skin on face.
