Having skin that is dry, itchy or irritated is often a persistent and distracting condition that affects day-to-day life.
The cause of irritation to skin conditions can vary, from diet to environment. Some of the areas to consider that could be affecting your skin include:
Allergies - there are many allergenics that can irritate your skin topically. An allergy patch test can determine whether you are allergic to around 40 common irritants. Ask your naturopath or health practitioner about having an allergy patch test conducted.
Diet - gluten, lactose, fructose are some of the intolerances your body might have, but these don't always show up on an allergy test. Sometimes, avoiding these foods for a period of 4-6 months allows your stomach the time to grow stronger and eventually tolerate a full diet. Chat to your naturopath or health practitioner to discuss if modifying your diet might help you manage your skin condition. Ensure you're eating a balanced diet and consuming enough water to hydrate and nourish your skin from the inside out.
Exposure to chemicals - products you use, consume and breathe in can all affect your body and ultimately your skin. Avoid harsh chemicals, preservatives, parabens, alcohols, phthalates and other harsh chemical ingredients wherever possible. Make conscious decisions about every product you bring into your home to best avoid toxins
