Natural remedies for irritated skin (thanks to hay fever)
If you don't already know, this year we're experiencing one of the worst hay fever season in a long time. From itchy eyes to a nose runnier than the Yarra River, hayfever can cause endless havoc. So, what can you do to minimise your symptoms? The best natural remedy for hay fever might be something you already have in your fridge!
We've listed 3 natural remedies you can try at home.
1. Load up on Vitamin C
Studies suggest that the traditional immune system boost acts like a natural antHistamine to calm allergic reactions. In fact, it might be the most important anti-allergy vitamin. Find it in fruit and veggies (such as oranges, red capsicum, kale and kiwi.) Simply add a few pieces to your lunchbox, as a side for dinner or make a smoothie. FYI, a dose of 2g a day is optimum for most people.
You can also apply vitamin c directly on your face with our Multi-vitamin Cleanse & Glow which has a high percentage of potent powdered Vitamin C.
2. Self-care with a luxurious Oatmeal Coconut Milk Bath
Oatmeal can be moisturizing, soothing, and inflammation-relieving for the skin. Coconut milk is naturally hydrating, it’s loaded with healthy fats and packed with antioxidants. It’s a perfect pair with oatmeal for a super soothing homemade bath recipe.
ps. Both our Cleanse & Glow products contain colloidal oatmeal making it ultra-soothing for inflamed skin.
