Skin Rashes and Inflammation and Barley Water:
Barley water can help alleviate skin inflammations. To make it, boil 3 ½ ounces of barley in 1 quart of water for 15 minutes. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Soak cotton balls in the barley water and carefully dab the liquid into the affected areas.
Vitamins & Minerals:
Vitamins A, B, and E, as well as zinc, selenium and potassium, can all help to relieve skin inflammations. Calcium may also be beneficial, especially if the irritations are caused by allergies. Silicon speeds the growth of new skin cells.
Oatmeal Bath Relieves Itchy Skin:
For itchy skin due to eczema or other causes, try an oatmeal bath. Place a pound of oatmeal in fine-gauze netting and let it soak in the warm bathwater for half an hour. Then use the oatmeal pack as a soothing sponge during your bath. Or, sprinkle colloidal oatmeal-finely ground oatmeal sold at many pharmacies, into your bathwater. Oatmeal can be slippery, so take care when getting in or out of the tub. To prolong the effects, allow your skin to air dry.
Oak Bark Relieves Inflammation:
Oak back, an anti-inflammatory, contains a high proportion of the astringent tannins, which is particularly well tolerated by the skin. Soak compresses in oak-bark tea, dab them lightly on affected areas and allow your skin to dry.
Chamomile Heals Wounds:
Chamomile-tea compresses can be used to soothe inflamed skin. Chamomile also promotes wound healing.
Heal Skin Rash with Wheat-grass Juice:
Wheat-grass juice helps heal skin inflammation. The chlorophyll in the juice accelerates the formation of new skin. The juice also offers protection against bacteria. Sprinkle the juice liberally on a gauze pad and apply the pad to the skin.
Eczema and Moist Tea Compresses:
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon each of malva flowers and white yarrow. Allow the tea to cool, and then pour it over a gauze compress; apply the compress to the skin to relieve eczema. The mucilage in the malva form a protective layer, and the yarrow acts as a pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory.
Feet Itchy and Burning Relief:
Castor oil helps relieve burning itchy feet. Simply rub caster oil on the affected areas.
Rose Water and Chamomile for Inflammation:
Dissolve 2 drops of chamomile oil in ½ cup of rose water. Apply this mixture to inflamed areas 3 times daily with a cotton ball. Rose water soothes the skin while chamomile oil heals the inflammation.
