Duct tape for dry skin? hey it works! Read my article

To eliminate dry skin and mild psoriasis, use a piece of duct tape. Tear off a 2 to 3 inch piece and apply it over the problem area; leave it on for at least 30 minutes. When it is time to remove it do so very quickly, that way it will not hurt so much when peeling it back off.

After the tape is removed apply a lotion containing a moisturizer or vitamin E to keep it moist and smooth. It also can extract black heads if they are not embedded to deeply. Duct tape can also be used to remove fuzzy facial hair if it is not too thick.

Be careful not to put the tape on the soft skin under your eyes. It can be very painful pulling it off; also make sure the duct tape does not stick to your eyebrows or any other hair you do not want to remove.
