One of the many triggers of eczema is the changing of the surrounding weather. And since autumn is just around the corner and winter will follow soon, here are ways to battle eczema using home remedies.
Home remedies for eczema
Coconut oil or Jojoba oil
The problem with dry skin is that it makes eczema itchier. So you need to lather up with oil, especially after showering before patting your skin dry. Let it stay on your skin for a while before putting on your clothes.
Organic raw honey
Put organic honey on top of the affected areas and leave it for at least thirty minutes.
Less stress, do yoga or meditation
Stress can also make eczema worse. Try yoga, meditation, light walking or even getting enough sleep can help alleviate stress.
Probiotics are known to help improve skin health. So stock up on those plain yogurts.
I know I said at home remedies, but if you do get bored at home, try visiting a salt cave/mine. Salty air is also a remedy for eczema. If there’s no salt cave or mine near you, even sea breeze will do.
