Neha T. asks:

Hi ladies,

Need help. My sister has extremely dry skin. It is so dry that we can see a textured pattern on her hands at times. Can you people suggest a good body oil for such a skin?

  1. Even i suffer from extreme dryness in winters, been using Patanjali Tejus Tailam just after bath. Its great. Smell is a lil pungent coz of the chandan i guess. But i like it! The faint smell lingers even till evening. Ask ur sis to avoid taking bath in very hot water.

          1. Waise furrfurriya from IMBB I got to know ki ghar saari vegetables- aaloo, piyaaz, tamatar, kheera, adrak, lassun etc. ka paste banakar lagana chaahiye…kuchh na kuchh to jaroor kaam kar jaayega ๐Ÿ˜›

            1. Lol, haan true, tamatar has vit c, garlic has healing proprties n baaki sab sabzian bhi bahut gooonkaari hain, isliye kuch na kuch fayda toh awashya hi hoga ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. hihih aparajita is new no.. she has no idea about jomol’s cooking. Aparajita try jomol’s chilli paneer … *evill greeiiinn*

  2. nothing can beat good old mustard oil massage before bath ๐Ÿ˜€ if your sis doesn’t like the smell of mustard oil, let her try pure coconut oil instead. both are very moisturizing. and if i haven’t scared u enough already, i heard massaging ghee before bath does wonders for dry skin too ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I agree wid aps totally and massaging the scalp with cows ghee can cure mental stress also. though applying it is a challenging task ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. I totally agree with Aparajita! they really work!!!specially the coconut oil is great for skin!!Continue apply throughout the year and your skin will glow!!

  4. you can try extra virgin olive oil. Can be applied after bath as well. Put few drops of oil in your palm, warm it by rubbing your palms and apply to dry areas.

  5. Try johnson & johnson baby oil.It works like wonder, absorbs very quickly in skin.
    No chip chip, very mild aroma.
    it keeps my skin moist soft n smooth for 24 hrs. i have tried many body oils n lotions but
    this works best

  6. Olive oil is the best for plp with xtremely dry flaky skin. Use products that contain cocoa butter or shea butter !!! Hope this helped ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Try J&J oil gel after every shower.. it is the best for dry skin.. it is available in shops that sell imported goods in india.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hi all

    My friend too had super dry skin and two things which she uses religiously help her wade away winter woes… figaro olive oil before the bath and after bath, in semidry skin, biotique carrot seed after bath oil…

    I have seen her skin becoming so soft and supple!!!

  9. You can try Johnson’s baby oil. Apply it immediately after the shower on wet skin. Or apply the oil before the final rinse. Helps to spread it evenly. Works great. No stickiness either.

  10. u’ve already got all good suggestions…

    even i’ve extremely dry skin.. no matter what season it is.. even in summers i have to apply oil .. my dermatologist suggested me :

    1. after having bath..apply “Mustard oil” and then rinse with lukewarm water..or “vitamin E OIl”.. or “coconut oil” for very very dry , very dry ,and dry skin respectively..
    2. use “Parasoft Soap” or “Pears ” only.
    3. “Parasoft cream” on DRy patches only.. its very very moisturising..
    4. NeVer use loofah and any scrubber.. it will only worsen your condition..
    5. Use cold cream after everytime you wash your hands..

    I hope it will help your sister..
