Exfoliation is Key
The first step in getting rid of those pesky flakes is exfoliation. This process helps remove dead skin cells and allows for smoother and healthier-looking skin.
A Simple Sugar Scrub
A sugar scrub is an effective way to remove dead skin cells without being too harsh on your delicate flesh prison. Just mix together 1/2 cup sugar with enough olive oil to create a paste-like consistency, then massage onto dampened skin before rinsing off.
An Egg-cellent Option
Another great option for exfoliating at home is using an egg white mask. Simply whisk one egg white until frothy, apply it gently onto your face (or wherever you’re experiencing dryness), leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
Hydrate Like It’s Your Job
Dry skin can be caused by not drinking enough water or environmental factors such as cold weather or overuse of air conditioning units. Ensure that you are hydrating regularly both internally (drinking plenty of water) as well as externally with skincare products specifically formulated for hydration purposes.

Lifestyle Tweaks Can Help Too
