Here Are Three Simple Home Remedies You Can Use To Calm and Clear Up Your Eczema
Natural Eczema Home Remedy One – Neem Lotion and Neem Oil At Bath Time
Neem oil is a mixture of the seeds and fruit of the Neem tree. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibacterial properties.
You can use a combination of neem oil and lotion as part of your bath time routine. It’s a gentle and safe to use for babies and young children.
Water is one of the main ways of drying out eczema prone skin. Bathe in lukewarm water and try to keep your bath short (to reduce your skin drying out unnecessarily). Resist the temptation to add your favorite bubble bath. Instead, add a few drops of a neem oil near the end of your bath.
After your bath, gently dry your skin with a soft towel. It’s worth checking to see if your laundry detergent is triggering your skin irritation. After your bath, apply neem lotion to your eczema, this will help to soothe and moisturise your skin.
Follow these steps after washing each day to allow the active elements of the lotion to improve your eczema flare up.
Natural Eczema Home Remedy Two – Calendula Flowers and Oil
Calendula is known for its anti-inflammatory, immunostimulant, and skin calming properties. It is part of the marigold daisy family.
It is known for helping to stimulate the production of collagen AND elastin. This is vital, as it assists the skin to heal and become healthy.
Calendula oil is safe you use directly onto your skin. To use it, simply place the oil on your skin, gently rubbing the oil into the affected areas, until the oil disappears. It will help to soften the skin and build up the strength within your skin.
Calendula is an edible flower and is therefore safe to eat. Another way you can use Calendula is to treat your eczema internally. Simply add the flowers to freshly made salads. Add a variety of fresh green leaves, tomatoes, peppers, chia seeds and sunflower seeds to create a tasty and healthy salad.
