5. Use A Good Humidifier

Have you ever noticed that some older people in desert climates look like leather? In reality, the moisturizer in the air is really good for the human skin. If you are living in a low-humidity climate or around furnaces in the winter, then humidifiers might save your skin.

The human skin, as recommendation, needs more than 30% humidity to stay appropriately moisturized. In winter, you had better place with a humidifier in the bedroom, and also keep the doors closed so the natural moist air will not escape out of the room.

You can mix together a 3:1 ratio of olive oil (grape seed oil is okay) and castor oil to create a good paste. Then, rub it onto the palm and spread over the face evenly. Squeeze a washcloth dipped in hot water and place it over the face. Wait till the washcloth is cooled before rinsing it off with cool water. Repeat this process till your skin feels silky and soft.
