Everybody can have skin problems, so it’s useful for us to know how to identify a skin condition. The major skin conditions that everyone should be aware of are psoriasis, eczema, and acne. What are the differences between them?
Eczema is a condition that isn’t permanent (it appears and disappears) while psoriasis is a disease that lasts a lifetime. Usually, children and infants suffer from eczema, and adults are diagnosed with psoriasis. The symptoms of eczema are inflamed and red skin while psoriasis provokes silvery and thick scales. Acne appears when the follicles are filled with keratin and sebum. You can recognize acne by the pimples or the inflammations that appear on the skin.
Here is a list of things you can try if you want to treat acne, eczema or psoriasis.
Use coconut oil and apple cider vinegar
Put two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar cider in water and then apply the solution on your skin (you also can use coconut oil) once or twice per day.
Use Essential Oils
There’s a fine selection of essential oils (peppermint, lavender, chamomile) that can do wonders for your skin. Because they’re rich in antioxidants, they can increase the level of oxygenation. You can mix a drop of these oils with olive or coconut oil.
Sun exposure provides us a good amount of vitamin D, which is essential for our body. If you don’t like to sunbathe, you can try vitamin D3/K2 supplement. Another solution is phototherapy.
Omega 3 fatty acids are the good fats that our bodies need. They can decrease skin inflammations. Also, if you consume this type of omega, your epidermal function will work better. You can find it in food like wild-caught fish or grass-fed meat.
Why buy juice from the supermarket when you can make your own juice at home, and it’s healthier? Beverages made of vegetables contain phytonutrients and antioxidants which are good for the improvement of your organism.
Vitamin A and Vitamin E
For a healthier and cleaner skin, your diet should include the fat-soluble vitamin E and A. Why? Because these vitamins have the ability to decrease the inflammations in the skin. You find these vitamins in avocados or cod liver.
Try not to be stressed
It’s hard to be stress-free when you have bills to pay and children to raise. Stress can affect our health, and we should try to be calmer and not let all the little things upset us.
Improve your gut motility
Fibers are essential for your body because they can make your bowel motility work better. You should include in your daily diet flax seeds or chia seeds.
It’s well known that herbs like basil, thyme, oregano, ginger are rich in antioxidants, and they make the food delicious. You can even add them in your drinks (e.g. tea).
