That dry, rough, itchy skin around your elbows, hands, knees, chest or face got you down 😔? 80-90% of eczema sufferers are under the age of 5 years. Poor little itchy bubba’s 👶🏼 Genetics can play a big role in the transfer of this condition between generations. Luckily improving digestive capacity, inflammation, stress and nutrient metabolism can provide relief.
For acute support - OAT BATHS. Super amazing 👌🏼 They soothe itchy skin and support skin hydration.
To create an oat bath:
1️⃣. Grind 1 cup for adults (or 1/3 cup of oats for baby) in food processor at highest setting until you have a fine, consistent powder.
2️⃣. Test 1 tsp of oats in a glass of warm water. If oats quickly absorb water and turn milky-looking you’ve blended long enough.
3️⃣. Run warm (not hot) bath containing your blended oats.
4️⃣. Jump in for at least 15 - 20 minutes to soak.
5️⃣. When finished moisturise within three minutes of getting out 💧
