Herbal Remedies for Your Skin


If you suffer from persistent skin problems like eczema or psoriasis, you know how that they are recurrent and difficult to control.

Common factors such as stress and poor diet can cause flare-ups, and who has time to run to the doctor every time this happens? Plus, your body can become resistant to the steroid creams that are commonly prescribed to treat these problems.

Luckily, there are several natural, easy, and safe herbal remedies for eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, and other causes of dry, flaky skin.

If you tend to have dry skin, taking vitamin E every day will help prevent problems before they start. Diets rich in olive oil and using safflower oil as a substitute for vegetable oil will also provide much-needed vitamin E.

Vitamin E is sold in capsule form, and you can break the capsules open and apply the oil directly to the affected area as well. Adding a few drops of lavender essential oil will help reduce redness, puffiness, and scaling.

For problems such as flakiness of the scalp, using a dandruff shampoo will help minimize the symptoms, but if you want to avoid the chemicals you can apply witch hazel directly to the affected area or mix it with your natural shampoo. This is very soothing and will help heal the skin.

Lastly, drinking plenty of water and avoiding alcohol and caffeine will help keep your skin hydrated, soft, and healthy. Take advantage of the natural herbal remedies available to help you control and treat your skin problems.
