For some women, skin may appear ashy or there will be a build-up of dead skin. So, a homemade avocado mask for dry skin or Aloe Vera & avocado DIY mask for dry skin should be used. You can also combine it with regular exfoliation, and daily use of moisturizer should soothe the dry and chapped skin.
