With so many home remedies for dry, itchy skin, there is no longer a need to rely on expensive store brand products. If you are like me, then dry, itchy skin along with an overwhelming urge to scratch can be quite annoying. For instant relief, I often turn to one of these simple yet effective home remedies for dry, itchy skin.
1. Baking Soda
Baking soda tops the list for one of the most effective home remedies for dry, itchy skin. For generalized dryness and itching, add one cup of baking soda to a tub of warm water and soak in the bath for 15-30 minutes. After the bath, gently pat your skin dry with a towel or allow yourself to air-dry. To treat a specific area of dry, itchy skin, you can make a paste of one part water to three parts baking soda, apply to the affected area, and rinse off after a couple of minutes.
