It may not seem like stress and anxiety can be a cause of itchy skin, but it can. Stress and anxiety play havoc on pretty much every part of your body. However, there are also some people that have naturally dry and itchy skin. Here are some home remedies you can use to help your skin look and feel better.
1. Take a bath with baking soda
Baking soda has some natural healing elements in it. It’s been used for centuries for all kinds of ailments including rashes. Add a cup of baking soda to your bath and relax for at least a half hour. When you get out of the tub, be sure to pat yourself dry instead of rubbing dry.
2. Lemon juice for itchy skin
Note that this treatment will not work for all skin types. Test a small area first to make sure that it will work for you. Lemon juice can be applied directly on the area that is itching and will help to relive the itch.
3. Oatmeal mixture
This is another remedy that’s been used for generations. An oatmeal bath is a great way to treat your skin as well as to help relive itching. Mix the oatmeal, about two cups, with warm – not hot – water and soak in a relaxing tub. Don’t use hot water as it is known to irritate skin.
