Itchy, Scaly, Dry Skin – How To Treat Eczema Naturally
Eczema and Psoriasis seem to be one issue that just isn’t going away. I’ve watched clients, family members, and friends struggle with these skin issues for decades. While many doctors say that food allergies play a part; others will tell you that food elimination diets didn’t always rid them of the issue. Recently, new drugs have been released to help combat “break outs” and control the immune system. While these drugs could help to control the issue, they come with some pretty horrible side affects. This article will show you how to treat eczema naturally.
*Note: some of the information in this article is based on my views and observations over the decades.
There is no shortage of creams, steroids, and natural aids to help with eczema and psoriasis. But do they work? The consensus from friends and family is that they may stop it from getting worse but it doesn’t “fix” the issue. I’ve created the “Healing Matrix (TM).” Which addresses the main issues associated with skin recovery and eczema.
How to Treat Eczema Naturally
1.) Moisture – Keep the skin the flexible using natural oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, and shea butter.
2.) Irritation – Fight bacteria and fungus with essential oils such as lavender.
3.) Skin Renewal – Recover and rebuild – calendula oil, has the ability to speed up healing, boost collagen levels, and seal the surface of the skin to lock out germs and bacteria.
4.) Inflamation – Allow the body to recover without re-injuring the skin. Symphytum Officinale can combat inflamation at a fast rate! It also helps to stimulate cell growth so that skin can heal faster.
You will never lose if you treat all of these at once! Be patient with the natural process. In most cases, irritation on a joint such as the knees and elbows will take longer to heal. Chances are that’s a thicker, rougher patch of skin with more healing to do.
Irritation on the face, head, and neck areas tends to heal much quicker.
Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize
Sound simple right? Wrong. Most people are moisturizing with things that are packed full of chemicals. Ditch the fake body butters and creams and switch to all natural sources. Shea butter, Coconut oil, and even Olive oil can be great ways to get the moisture back into the skin.
Apply your choice of moisturizers right out of the shower. Allow them to sink into the skin, then dab off the excess with a paper towel.
Natural Antibacterial Options
Coconut oil and olive oil are two great options for skin issues because they contain natural antibacterial fighting properties.
Other options relate to natural essential oils.
- Citrus Essential Oils
Are all good options to naturally fight bacterial that can cause redness, itching, and irritation on the surface of the skin.
Fit Tip: These oils also work well for acne and blemishes. My personal favorite for healing and antibacterial properties is lavender.
Avoid the Itch!
It’s easy to say, hard to do. Eczema treatments always have an “anti itch” ingredient added because the companies know it’s one of the most irritating issues associated with this skin.
Calming oils such as peppermint help to cool the heat of the skin while an herb such as chickweed can keep the irritation levels low. Chickweed without alcohol is the best option, since alcohol leads to access drying.
Can eczema be treated naturally? The answer is an astounding YES. We’ve spent hours creating a powerful organic eczema cream to address all of the issue listed above. Our powerful natural eczema cream comes in two formulas, our original Skin Therapy and our Skin Therapy Silver. The silver formula is our colloidal silver eczema cream. Both have powerful antibacterial properties, moisturizing oils, herb combinations to fight itch and sooth skin, and healing herbs to boost collagen.
Ditch the drugs, the steroids, the smelly creams and trade up for a natural combination that addresses all of the main points in the healing matrix. Nature takes time, but it’s worth it!
