However, the various external elements also take their toll-too much- sun, harsh winter months etc. In this scenario it is crucial that you provide moisture to your skin from outside besides having the maximum fluid intake. This is how you can hydrate your dry face to restore its former glory.
Let you skin breath. Remove all the dirt, grime and the dead cells from your face by using gentle face scrubs made from natural ingredients like lemon and milk combination, oatmeal, cider vinegar etc. There is a whole lot to choose from.
