Eczema & psoriasis: a cheat sheet.
Cold weather. Hot weather. Dairy. Gluten. Shitty boyfriends. Shitty girlfriends. There are so many stresses that can cause a babe's skin to flare up. This guide is short and simple, focusing on using natural methods to help ease eczema & psoriasis.
4 SOLUTIONS TO HELP YOU MANAGE YOUR SKIN.
Say no to cortizone.
This is the standard solution from most GPs. Yes, it can help to calm down your flare up, but did you know it's linked to sensitive skin, reduced collagen production and a host of other not-so-fun side effects? Natural ingredients don't act as a bandaid solution, they bring your skin into balance helping to reduce psoriasis and eczema.
Drink all the water. All of it.
You've heard it a million times, but before you exit this screen let me remind you that eczema and psoriasis are often the result of dead skin cells building up, so staying hydrated is a key to helping with cell turnover and collagen production. Not just a myth from toilet paper manufacturers.
Scrub up on your naturals.
100% natural ingredients: that's the answer to your problems. I make coffee scrubs that buff away the dead, dry skin and use natural healing oils to help reduce inflammation. When you're inflamed, just pat it on for a few minutes each day. As you start to see improvement you can commence gentle scrubbing.
Two weeks is all it takes.
Be nice to your skin and it'll be nice back. For 2 weeks cut out blowdryers which aggregate the scalp. fake tan which is packed with nasties, and dry shampoo which is toxic and you'll see the difference.
