Apple Cider Vinegar
The pH level of apple cider vinegar, as well as the herbal properties present, has been shown to improve skin conditions. It does this by improving hydration, repairing the skin barrier, and balancing pH levels. Vinegar is highly acidic and the skin is normally naturally acidic. The problem is most people with eczema have lower pH levels. Almost immediately following the topical application of ACV you can see the skin's pH levels rise. Studies have also found that apple cider vinegar fights bacteria and kills free radicals on the skin. (3)
How To Use: You can either bathe in an apple cider vinegar bath at a 1% dilution rate or apply better vinegar directly to the affected areas.
Sunflower Oil is extremely high in fatty acids and Vitamin E, which makes Sunflower Oil a great
moisturizer for the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that have been found to help heal wounds and ease psoriasis symptoms. It is a good ingredient for promoting skin barrier homeostasis. The main components of sunflower oil mainly consist of Oleic and Linoleic acids which are both especially good for skin health. There have been recent studies conducted that are showing sunflower oil is better for the skin over Olive Oil.(4)
How To Use:
Apply Sunflower Oil directly to effected skin or add 2 tbsp to a warm bath and soak.
Aloe vera has gained a lot of notability for its skin healing properties, especially surrounding burns. What you might not have known is that Aloe Vera is a great natural remedy for healing eczema and psoriasis. It contains natural anti-inflammatory and healing components.

I know right? Just when you think coconut oil can't heal another thing, you learn it can! Coconut oil is used in many topical creams and products to help with dry skin eczema and psoriasis. That's because coconut oil helps the skin hold in moisture while creating an antibacterial barrier. Cold-Processed coconut oil is superior over refined coconut oil because it still retains all of its bioactive components. (5)
How to use: Simply apply the coconut oil directly to affected areas in lather into the skin.
Colloidal Oatmeal Baths
Colloidal Oatmeal Baths are well-known for soothing irritated skin, and it's true! Colloidal oatmeal has been proven to reduce inflammation, repair the skin barrier, and soothe dry/cracked skin. Colloidal Oatmeal holds antiinflammatory and antioxidative properties that are attributed to its skin healing properties. (6)
How to use: Though you can technically throw your oatmeal directly into the bath, we recommend finding some sort of item to hold in the oats to prevent making a mess. This item can be something such as a burlap sachet, or a clean pair of pantyhose. You can also create homemade raw oat milk to add into the bath, or you can incorporate an oatmeal cream into your daily skincare routine.
