Fixes For Skin Problems

To keep skin clear & free of problems, eating right plays a big part. Certain skin problems like acne & eczema can be seen as an attempt by the body to get rid of toxins through the skin. We can help our body do just that by making sure our kidneys & liver function well, not overburdened with the job to eliminate toxins from the body.

Drink lots of water (filtered if possible) throughout the day, at least 8 glasses or 2 litres & eat large portions of fibre daily. Go easy on sugary foods & drinks. Learn to love fruits & vegetables.

Acne - Causes the formation of pimples, blackheads & cysts. For acne on the face, neck, chest & back, use a natural antibacterial, non-oily face or body wash such as those containing tea tree oil. Don't use oily cosmetics. Use a clay mask containing echinacea. Wash your hair daily.

Combat acne with : zinc, Vitamin A, B & E, echinacea, tea tree oil & thyme.

Blemishes/Age spots - Try dabbing lemon juice a few times a day to make them grow faint.

Sunburn - Apply a soothing lotion or gel containing pure aloe vera. Essential oils like anti-inflammatory lavender & soothing camomile are known to aid healing. If you wish try applying yogurt.

Mosquito bites & bee stings - Apply lavender & tea tree oil or try rubbing with a piece of raw onion.

Athlete's foot (Tinea pedis) - Mostly caused by a moisture-loving fungus called trichophyton, this infection occurs on the skin's surface & is usually accompanied by itch, blisters, red rash or a dry & scaly rash.

Maintain these habits to steer clear of this fungus -

clean your feet & dry them well especially between toes with a hair dryer, powder feet & shoes with antifungal powder, wear cotton socks & change them daily, alternate shoes - give the pair worn the previous day a chance to air & breathe, & try to put on sandals/slippers while in public shower or locker rooms
