Get Clearer, Silky Skin for Spring with Natural Remedies for Acne and Eczema
Spring has arrived! (Well, officially, anyway!) Spring brings the promise of warm weather, lighter evenings and plenty of opportunities for Bank Holiday adventures. The increase in temperature means wearing fewer layers and exposing a bit more flesh, so many of us want the confidence that comes from having clear skin at this time of year in particular.
Unfortunately, springtime weather can be a trigger for conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea and psoriasis which make your skin feel rough and cause discomfort, pain and a negative effect on self-esteem.
When your skin is irritated, you often can’t use your favourite body lotions and moisturisers to keep your skin silky smooth.
How the weather affects your complexion
Seasonal changes are renowned for causing flare-ups of skin conditions. With spring, the increase in temperature, humidity and allergens can all be responsible for outbreaks of acne or eczema.
The most common skin conditions affected by the seasonal changes include acne and eczema:
- Acne is a chronic skin condition characterised by inflammation manifesting as spots and pimples.
- Eczema is a dry skin condition that causes itchiness, redness and cracking of the skin.
What can you do to help your skin to look fresh and smooth and feel your best?
We can’t control the weather but we can take steps to influence how our body responds to it.
Our diet, exercise and sleep patterns have a significant impact on our health and general wellbeing. All these factors can be seen outwardly in our appearance, including in the health of our skin. For example, a symptom of a vitamin A deficiency is very dry skin. Keeping ourselves in the best of health also minimises the impact of any allergic and inflammatory skin conditions.
So, in order to best manage any skin condition, you need to make sure your lifestyle is as healthy as it can be. In addition, traditionally used and trusted natural remedies for acne and herbal remedies for eczema can also be beneficial to your complexion.
Here are our top tips to having clear skin this season:
Watch Your Diet
Choose nutritious meals with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Be mindful that many processed foods contain high-levels of salt. High levels of salt can be found in many foods you wouldn’t necessarily expect, such as bread and cheese.
Stock up on Sleep
People need different amounts sleep but on average it’s between 6 – 10 hours per night. When we sleep our bodies restore and heal themselves, having a positive impact on our skin.
Up Your Intake of Water
Drinking plenty of water is an absolute must to ensure your body flushes out all its toxins.
Consider Herbal Skin Care
Blue Flag and Burdock Root are traditionally used herbal remedies for eczema and acne. HRI Clear Complexion is carefully formulated with extracts of both herbs to be most beneficial. Keep your skin looking its best using natural, herbal skin care remedies.
