Home Remedies for Irritable Skin

Felicia Sapountzis

Do you, or someone you know suffer from irritable skin? This could mean breaking out due to a rough exfoliator, or even using new makeup products on your skin which cause annoying breakouts.

Below are just a few home remedies which can nurse skin back to normal, without paying a large price-tag for moisturisers and cleansers which don’t do the job.

Avocado Mask

Perfect for skin which has dried up from cold weather, and needs a pick-me-up to lock in moisture. Mash an entire avocado with extra-virgin olive oil, and apply all over the face and body for smooth skin. Follow-up with a fragrance-free moisturiser to keep skin healthy.

Aloe Vera Shower Gel

Make your very own homemade aloe vera shower gel without the nasty chemicals included. Combine distilled water, salt, aloe vera gel, and chamomile into a bottle and mix well. The gel should calm irritable skin without overly drying it out.

Chamomile and Oat Facial Cleanser

Rather than using an abrasive scrub on your face, try the natural way and raid your kitchen for the best ingredients ever. All you need is rolled oats, organic chamomile tea, essential oil, and bentonite clay to give body to the cleanser. Transfer the mixture into a glass jar, and refrigerate for best results.

Rosemary Lavender Salt Scrub

Give your entire body a pick-me-up by creating your very own homemade scrub. All you need is salt, olive oil, lavender, and rosemary for a relaxing face and body cleanse.
