For minor irritations and dry skin, pop open the pantry for a natural fix. Research shows that the moist healing environment honey provides the skin can reduce inflammation (especially useful for trouble spots like the elbows). It’s simple, too! Slather on the trouble spots, let sit for 30 minutes, and wash clean. Just remember: if the problem persists, contact a medical professional to see if it’s something more than dry skin.
