When your skin is dry, cracked, becoming lined with wrinkles, and just feels completely parched, you know the time has come to take care of it.
Natural treatments have been around for a very long time. Consider Cleopatra! It's been said that Cleopatra used essential oils to moisturize her face and body, even masks and special cleansing scrubs, all composited of natural fixes. It has been said that she may have used a wrinkle reducer and natural treatment composed of beeswax, maringa oil, aloe, goose fat, fennel, castor oil and other dry skin care concoctions. In fact, the very first known treatment on the face dates back to around 3000 BC in Egypt. This skin care elixir consist of a type of animal bile, whipped up eggs from ostriches, olive oil, a kind of dough, and a milk mixture.

Thankfully, many of today's products are being formulated using natural ingredients. Why is dry skin natural treatment back in vogue? The answer is: because it works! Cleopatra was known, after all, for her beauty and meticulous skin care regimens.
