Soothing Eczema and Psoriasis Masque

Soothing Eczema and Psoriasis Masque

Both Eczema and psoriasis  result in patchy, rough skin.  If the symptoms are not treated, the result is dry, scaly skin that looks and feels old and tough.

A gentle cleansing masque that also soothes and cools is a great treatment for the pain associated with these problems.

While this treatment will not cure you of your skin disorder, it will relieve some of the pain and discomfort.  It also takes away some of the excess skin and flakiness associated with these disorders, leaving the skin softer and smoother.

¼ chopped bushel of watercress

10 white seedless grapes

2 tablespoons of baking soda

1 anise stem

2 teaspoons of anise extract

5 tablespoons water

In a blender, mix all the ingredients together on a medium speed for 30 seconds, or until smooth.  Place mixture on affected areas and wrap in cling film (optional, but less messy).  Leave on for 30minutes.  Rinse with warm water.  Makes ¾ cup.

Shelf life: Cover and refrigerate, discard after three days.

 

You can find all of these products in any Asian market.

Remember to do a patch test before using the above masque.

The watercress:  Medicant

The grapes: anti-inflammatory, softener, A and C enzymes

Baking soda: cleanser and softener

Anise stem: soother

Anise extract: soother.
