Dry scratchy and stretchy skin is just unbearable. Many good body lotions are available to get rid of scaly skin but still trying out some homemade body lotions can be of more help.
Try these out
Olive oil Body Lotion
Even though olive oil is a great moisturizer itself but its efficacy can be increased by adding some petroleum jelly. Olive oil also has antioxidant properties so prevents sagging skin as well.
1/2 cup Olive Oil
2 tbsp. petroleum jelly or Beeswax
Take these two in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave them on medium temperature till both the contents melt. Take the mixture out and add distilled water to it. Add the water till you get desired consistency. Blend very well and store in an airtight container. This body lotion can be stored without the need to refrigerate.
Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil Body Lotion
Mix Aloe Vera and coconut oil in equal quantities. This mixture is a great moisturizer and should be stored away from sunlight. Coconut oil is light but highly moisturizing at the same time. Aloe Vera moisturizes the skin and also has disinfecting properties.
Cocoa Butter Body Whip
1 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup almond/olive/jojoba oil
Take all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. For ease of blending, you can microwave the mixture for a few seconds. Keep the mixture in refrigerator and chill it till it turns semi-solid. Then take the mixture out and whip it with a hand-mixer till it becomes foamy and formation of white peaks takes place.
Store it in refrigerator. Before first use, chill the whip for at least one hour. This is a very nice way to keep skin moisturized for a long time.
Honey Body Lotion
Mix honey and shea butter in equal quantities. Whip and mix well. This again is an excellent moisturizer. Honey is great for hydration without any feeling of greasiness. Shea butter is used in many skincare products and if you can get pure shea butter, nothing can beat the nourishment.
