Another kitchen staple that can soothe dry skin comes from the refrigerator: Milk. Apply it by soaking a washcloth in a bowl of cold milk and then pressing it against your driest, itchiest spots for a few minutes. Experts recommend using a fattier brand than the one you might drink -- more fat means even more moisturizing -- so grab a small container of 2 percent or whole on your next grocery trip.
