I kinda' have a rule when it comes to skincare.

Your skin absorbs anything you put on it, so really, you shouldnโ€™t put anything on it that you wouldnโ€™t put in it.2

That means approaching your skincare as you would your diet, feeding your skin the best natural ingredients, eschewing all toxic chemicals.

I get patches of itchy, dry skin so I often turn to some homemade remedies.

1. Oatmeal and Herb Bath Bags

One of the most important things to remember about taking a bath with dry skin is that you should always add something moisturizing to the water.

Oatmeal is a great ingredient to use.

It contains phenols and avenanthramides which reduce inflammation and sooth discomfort of dry, itchy skin.

It can help restore your skinโ€™s pH levels and the saponins act as a natural anti-bacterial cleanser.

The best way to use oatmeal in your bath is with an oatmeal and herb bag.

Ingredients:

Handful of oatmeal

A square of cheesecloth or muslin

Aromatic herb of your choosing

A ribbon or strip of cheesecloth

To make and use:

All you have to do is put the oatmeal and herbs in the middle of the fabric square, pull it together in a pouch and secure with the ribbon.2

Make sure to leave enough ribbon so the bag hangs down in the water when you turn on the faucet.

Thatโ€™s all you do.

Hang the bag over the hot water as itโ€™s running and you get a lovely bath that will soothe your itchy dry skin.
