Shedding Your Skin
Who wants to be blotchy or have a strange rash appear just before that special occasion?
Who wants their smart new outfit ruined by the weird rash that peaks over the neckline or below the hem?
The thing about skin problems is that they are just so visible…
With that in mind, consider the various options for sorting out your skin.
Prickly heat is the bane of the sun-loving, pale-skinned UK resident, who breaks out in itchy red lumps the moment the sun’s rays fasten on their delicate flesh.
- Urtica tincture will be an enormous help, often ridding the skin of the offensive lumps and bumps in a matter of hours. If you know you are prone to this problem, take Urtica for a couple of weeks before heading to the sun, and continue it throughout your stay.
- Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine, so take a low dose every hour or so to keep your protection high without any of the side effects of conventional antihistamines.
- Avoid stimulants that might exacerbate your rash – don’t drink heaps of coffee or bathe your insides entirely in alcohol. Try to drink plenty of still water and fruit juices every day.
Obviously it’s always a sound notion to get any new skin rash checked out medically before piling in with remedies yourself. Many people, however, don’t get an answer to their skin symptom – it just appears and does its own thing!
- Urtica again – it’s blood cleansing and often a rash is the result of the body throwing toxins or unwanted substances out through the skin.
- Viola tricolor, a pretty little flower that has immense skin-healing properties, whatever the problem. It will improve circulation to the skin, increasing the amount of nutrients that are taken there and the amount of toxins that are removed. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, which helps most problems.
- Echinacea is always a smart idea. It has traditionally been used for skin problems as it can clear up the causes of a skin reaction, and will stop you getting a cold as well!
Smoothing and Soothing
If the skin is red and irritated, feeling itchy or sore, it is wonderful to have something soothing to smooth on. Try Neem Cream. Taking Viola internally and applying Neem Cream externally can be of help for many mystery skin eruptions.
