If you are familiar with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rashes, then you probably know that steroid creams do not bring a lasting effect and have side effects. What natural methods can reduce the symptoms of the disease? Pay special attention to liver health A healthy liver regulates blood sugar and keeps skin supple. High blood sugar has a negative effect on the condition of the skin. In order for the liver to work better with the removal of toxins and dead cells, help it with an infusion of dandelion root or milk thistle seeds. Drink herbal teas Drink more water (from 6-8 glasses a day). Add nutrient-rich herbs such as nettle or oats. They supply calcium and other minerals needed by the skin. Make applications with herbs Soak fresh sage leaves in oil and apply externally on the affected areas. In addition to sage, it is recommended to use red cedar, thyme, yarrow and comfrey. Chop 1 cup fresh leaves, mix with 1 cup olive oil, simmer for 20 minutes. Strain, reserve the oil and add 1/4 cup chopped beeswax. Pour into a jar, let cool. Apply the ointment to the affected areas. Use witch hazel ointment Witch hazel is a very good remedy for relieving itching, has a tonic effect on the affected skin. Chop red clover, plantain or other antiseptic herbs (rosemary or sage) and place in a jar. Add witch hazel, screw on lid, shake. Brew the resulting mixture, strain, apply to the skin. Eliminate sweets from your diet Refined sugar causes a surge in insulin levels, which in turn provokes inflammation. This inflammation is caused by enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin.
