Oats are anti-inflammatory and ease itching while nourishing and smoothing dry skin. If you are suffering from the itchy, dry skin that is often caused by cold winter weather, you should try soaking in an oatmeal bath.

To create a simple oatmeal bath at home: grind 2 cups of rolled oats with one cup of baking soda in a blender, food processor, or coffee grinder. Add the oatmeal powder and baking soda to a tub of warm water. Soak for 15 minutes to sooth dry skin. This oatmeal combination will also offer you temporary relief from rashes.

The continued use of oatmeal soap will be helpful for your dry skin problems.
