5 Home Remedies To Treat Your Skin Condition

  1. Aloe Vera Gel – The gel that is found within the plant of the Aloe is a very potent and effective remedy. If you are using this on your skin it is best used when the skin is dry,flaking or itching as the gel is really effective in soothing and adding moisture into the skin. To apply simply rub a generous amount onto the effected area, leaving on for 15 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water. It is very easy to grow your own aloe plant in most climates, or alternatively you can purchase the gel extracted from most health stores.
  2. Lemon Juice (diluted) – For many with any type of skin condition scars can become a big problem, but for light scars such as hyperpigmentation marks caused after acne has gone can be treated and healed using diluted lemon juice. The reason it is so effective is because it contains a chemical that lightens the skin, until eventually the scars disappear. To use lemon juice you will first need to dilute it or it may burn the skin.
  3. Herbal Tea – There are many herbal tea’s that can help to treat skin conditions internally, removing toxins and other debris that build up inside of the body. My favourite herbal tea’s are nettle, dandelion and green tea, which all contain vitamins and minerals to help the body repair itself. To use drink 1-3 cups of herbal tea per day for the best results.
  4. Tea Tree Oil – The tea tree oil is said to be as effective as benzoyl peroxide in removing dead skin cells and killing bacteria. When using tea tree oil it is important to dilute it first as it is very important, many people get a bad reaction also from using tea tree oil so it is important to do an allergy test before using.
  5. Water – The best home remedy of all is pure water, water that is the best treatment for psoriasis, acne, scars or any other. Over 80% of the body is made up of water, and drinking pure water everyday can help to heal the skin faster and help to remove toxins, plus many other benefits.

By using these home remedy you should see a big difference in your skin condition and the over-all health of your skin.
