As the winter season is entering, so is the dryness in the air. And as we cover ourselves with woollen clothes, itchiness and rashes become a daily annoyance. Hence to soothe your skin from the redness and itchiness try some home remedies.
Take a look:
1. Oatmeal Bath:
Soak yourself up in a warm oatmeal bath to get relief from the itchy skin. Oatmeal is packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory chemicals called avenanthramides that boosts skin health and helps in getting rid of any infection. You can also make a paste of oatmeal and apply it on the affected area to reduce the redness.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar:
Working effectively on various skin disorders, Apple Cider Vinegar’s soothing treatment will give you instant relief. Mix two cups of ACV in warm water and take a bath with it. It restores the pH of skin and helps in fighting the infection and redness. You can also try body wrap of ACV to soothe your skin.
3. Olive Oil:
Olive Oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that not only soothes the skin from persistent itchiness but also heals the cracked and dry skin. It also helps in renewing the skin and erases marks and blemishes, giving a smooth, flawless skin. Gently massage the dry, itchy patch with olive oil and you will be relieved to see its effectiveness.
Use freshly prepared basil paste to treat rashes. Basil leaves contain eugenol, a chemical that works on the nerves and reduces inflammation. It also has a cooling effect on the skin that numbs the affected area, giving you instant relief.
