I've been suffering from really dry, itchy and flaky skin lately. And, my sunflower oil was not cutting it anymore. I needed something a bit more heavy to soothe my winter skin. Facial skin is sensitive and the wrong products can break you out.
I wanted to use natural things only. The first thing I applied to my skin was milk. It immediately bought relief to my skin. I soaked a cotton pad in cold milk and then I applied the wet cotton pad to the dry patches. Then I applied it all over my face. The milk has lactic acid which is very good for your skin. Milk is also very moisturizing. You can leave it on for as long as you want. I do this once in the morning and once at night if my skin is really dry. You can also use milk as a weekly face pack. Easy, super simple and very effective.
If you want you can stop here but after that I go ahead and apply a mixture of equal parts of olive oil and honey. You don't have to wash your face after applying the milk, you can just apply this mixture on top of it. Leave this mixture on for as long as possible and then wash it off.
Don't use olive oil if you're prone to break outs just use honey and milk and that will be enough. Honey and milk won't clog your pores or break you out unless you are allergic to them. So, use them without any fear and restrictions. There is no time limit on it. Use however many times you want. You will notice a difference immediately. But, keep using till your dry skin is normal again.
