  • If you suffer from dry, chapped skin, welcome to the club. I do, too. One day after I turned 35, my skin magically changed from oily to dry. Hormones.

    The recipes in this gallery are super moisturizing for dry, chapped skin like mine. And the best news is you can find the ingredients in your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Avocado, honey, milk and brown sugar are all great for dry skin. If you have skin sensitivities, you'll want to do a test on your neck or wrist first, but most of these ingredients are so pure, most people won't have a problem.

  • Avocados and honey are particularly moisturizing. This mask is great for mature, wrinkled and dry skin. It's best to use a ripe, fresh, organic avocado. Make sure to mash it up into a creamy pulp.

  • A great facial mask can hydrate and soften dry skin. This one uses as its main ingredients super hydrating aloe vera gel, avocado and honey.

  • This face mask is full of antioxidants and moisturizing agents needed to bring back moisture to skin while fighting free radicals that cause aging. You will find all the ingredients in your kitchen and you'll love the way this mask leaves your skin.

  • Brown sugar is a wonderful natural exfoliant that works for all skin types. I adapted this recipe from one suggested by Lena Korres, founder of Korres Natural Products, and makeup artist Jemma Kidd, in Cosmopolitan magazine.

  • This is a classic milk mask for the face. Milk works beautifully to moisturize dry skin. This recipe makes enough for two.

  • If you are familiar with my Website, you know how obsessed I am with coconut oil. I smooth it on my face every day in the winter and wipe off the excess with a damp washcloth before applying my SPF tinted moisturizer. It acts as the absolute perfect foundation primer and keeps my super dry skin hydrated while the washcloth acts as the perfect exfoliant. So imagine my joy when I tried this recipe out and fell in love immediately with it.

  • Turmeric is a bright yellow spice used in many Indian, Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern dishes, but what many Western don't know is that when combined with olive oil, it's also a brilliant face mask for dry or aging skin.
