Depurative infusions made from medicinal plants can help us restore our internal balance by eliminating toxins that interfere with skin health.
Skin problems are not only an aesthetic issue, as they are exposing an internal health problem that may be related to digestive, hormonal, allergic, etc. issues.
In addition, conventional treatments are not always effective.
In this article, we provide you with some natural and home remedies that will allow you to treat dermatitis while balancing your body.
Dermatitis encompasses all types of inflammations of the skin, including pathologies such as atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, etc.
Those who suffer from these dermatological problems know how annoying they are, the extent to which they affect their quality of life and how difficult it is to cure them.
For this reason, it is essential to address dermatitis internally and externally.
Natural and respectful skin care
Taking care of the skin in a natural way and respecting its natural pH is just as important as following the natural remedies we propose in this article.
If we have delicate skin we should avoid using conventional products, as they contain substances that are too aggressive, such as parabens, detergents or petroleum products.
We can prepare our own products at home or buy those that are of ecological quality or craftsmanship.
Only with this change in our routine of hygiene and cosmetics can we notice a great improvement in a short time.
Health problems that cause inflammation, such as dermatitis, in this case, are related to the color red. The color opposite to red is blue, with anti-inflammatory properties, as shown by color-healing techniques ( color therapy).
In this sense, there is a curious and surprising ancient remedy to improve the inflammation of the skin using the healing virtues of blue.
- We will need a blue glass container, which we will fill with water.
- We will expose it to the sun for at least 2 hours.
- We will take one glass (200 ml) half an hour before each of the three main meals.
In the sea, we also find the blue color, but above all the sea water gives us all the minerals we need in the proportions necessary for our organism. In addition, marine water is anti-inflammatory, alkalizing and depurative. With the help of a wipe moistened with sea water, we will clean the affected skin and let it dry naturally. We will do it when we wake up in the morning and before bed.
Another great remedy that we can apply externally on the skin is oats, a medicinal cereal highly recommended for its use and habitual consumption thanks to its excellent nutritional values. If we suffer dermatitis in an important part of the body we recommend to take a bath with oats .
We will feed 500 grams of oatmeal in flakes for 3 minutes and then we will beat the mixture well.
The result will be thick oat milk that we will add to the bath water.
For smaller areas of skin or to complete this bath, we can make an oat sponge by introducing the raw flakes of this cereal into a porous gauze cloth, which we tie with a loop.
When we introduce it in hot water, the oats will be undone by the gentle massage and will release particles on our skin.
The infusions made with medicinal plants are also an excellent complement to this natural treatment, since they act in an internal way without disturbing the balance of the skin.
These plants are depurative and help us eliminate the toxins that are interfering with dermal health:
