There are times when our skin starts acting up, and we face many problems regarding that. If you have sensitive skin, skin allergy is a common problem you might face when you incorporate a new skincare product into your routine.
Getting rid of that allergy overnight is next to impossible, but gradually you can get rid of that by using some simple ingredients available in your house. Though if you have been suffering from it for quite a while, even after using multiple natural remedies, you need to consult a dermatologist.
In this article, we’ll discuss some natural home remedy masks and tips to incorporate into your skincare routine. So, without blabbering further, let’s get started with the article.
We all know aloe vera is a powerful and magical ingredient that works wonders for your skin and hair. Aloe vera is readily available, and you can either get your hands on a 100% aloe vera gel from the market or your garden.
You only need fresh aloe vera gel for this mask and nothing else. Scoop out the aloe vera gel with a spoon and apply it on the affected parts. Using these herbal extracts can certainly reduce your skin allergy.
We are well aware of the medical and antifungal properties of neem leaves. It is a widely used ingredient for treating any kind of skin problem. Not only can it reduce your skin allergy, but it can also provide you permanent relief from the annoying itchiness that an allergy causes.
There are two ways you can incorporate neem into your routine for a few days to treat your allergy. The first is to bathe with neem water, and the second is to apply neem paste to the affected area on your face. This way, you can easily get rid of it.
Another very effective natural ingredient is turmeric which has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial properties that can easily reduce the effectiveness of your allergy. A very good way to use turmeric is by applying a thick layer of turmeric paste on the parts that bother you.
Of course, it is even better to get whole turmeric roots which are more natural, but if you can get turmeric powder, it is also fine. You can also make a pack by applying neem and turmeric paste to the affected parts.
You can easily get your hands on peppermint essential oil, and by using it, you can get some relief from your skin allergy. Peppermint has antiseptic and cooling properties, which can calm down the areas and help in the healing process.
However, do not put the essential oil directly on the areas. Instead, apply carrier oil like olive oil (cold pressed) on the areas. Also, do not use coconut oil as it is comedogenic and can clog your pores, worsening the condition even more!
This ingredient is commonly known as Cica and is used in most healing creams and gels. This is a great ingredient that helps in calming down the skin and healing it slowly. It also heals and protects the skin barrier, restores the skin, and protects it from further damage.
Mix Cica with aloe vera and apply the mixture during nighttime. Then, if you don’t get the leaves, you can use Cica creams and gels to treat your skin.
We’ve always considered oatmeal as an ingredient to consume. But have you ever given it a thought that oatmeal can be used to cure your skin allergies too? It’s proven that it works wonders on the skin and is considered one of the best go-to’s.
So, it’s quite evident that this article would’ve been incomplete if it had left this ingredient out of the list. Oatmeal is widely used for treating skin irritations and issues like skin allergies. First, grind the ground oatmeal into a fine powder and mix it with your bath water. Then, use it, bathe, and wait for the magic to happen.
