This spice is known to reduce inflammation in people who struggle with conditions like psoriasis and eczema. An antioxidant in the product both protects the skin from becoming irritated and reduces wound-healing time. Just add a teaspoon to your diet once a day and let it do its thing.
Apple cider vinegar
This is often used as a disinfectant so is bound to work wonders when it comes to cleasing the skin. Apply directly to patches of scaly, eczema-flamed skin or use a paper towel to distribute the product evenly across larger portions of your body. Voilà.
Zinc is an important nutrient that ranks pretty highly when it comes to cell growth and immune function. Research indicates that people with acne tend to have less of the enzyme in their blood, and studies have shown that taking it orally can help reduce future flare-ups.
Honey and cinnamon
The combination of these two products helps fight bacteria and reduce inflammation on the skin that could worsen acne. Mix two tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon to create the paste required. Leave on for fifteen minutes and rinse off with warm water.
Bicarbonate of soda
This can literally have overnight effects on people who struggle with eczema and a condition called sebhorreic dermatisis. Add half a cup of soda to your bath to provide relief from itching or apply directly onto skin (including the scalp) that is red-raw and feels irritable.

Used for centuries, applying warm olive oil to the skin can help soften and smooth its surface, while also combating any scaly patches from conditions like eczema or dermatitis.

Tea tree oil
Used to help fight back against both acne and eczema, tea tree oil is the wonder product that can seemingly do anything. Simply add one drop of the product into twelve drops of coconut oil and apply directly onto the skin.
