Dry Skin

Home remedies

Indian Ayurveda describes Dry skin as a predomonant trait of Vata constitution. Even in normal people, Vata causes dryness of the skin when it is vitiated due to seasonal influences. This dryness may even extend to the mucous membranes covering the lips and thus cause cracking. Dryness of the skin and the mucous membranes is also caused by certain illnesses like fever.
