People who have dry skin often find their skin to feel itchy because of the lack of moisture in it. In fact, dry skin also shows signs of ageing more than oily skin because the lines are easily visible on it. In order to provide good nourishment to dry skin, it is important to use ingredients that are rich so that they not only nourish from within, but also leave a protective layer on the skin that prevents the moisture from leaving the skin. Olive oil and honey are two such natural ingredients that are perfect for those with dry skin. They have antioxidants, anti-bacterial properties and are rich in minerals that leave the skin looking radiant and smooth. They also add a nice glow to your face. You can make a face pack using olive oil and honey at home and use it for dry skin. (ALSO SEE Aloe vera and tea tree face mask)
