For many people, winter means months of dry skin. Chronic dry skin can lead to eczema, which is an inflammatory skin disorder. Eczema can be caused by: allergies, very hot or cold weather, stress, cold/flu. Symptoms may include: itching, scaling, flaking and crusting, on the face, elbows or behind the knees.
Loose leaf tea and herbal blends are perfect in banishing dry skin during the winter months due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
The three herbs that have proven their efficiency in dealing with eczema would be Burdock, Fumitory, and Red Clover. We will be focusing on the Burdock Root & Red Clover. Both are herbs with anti-inflammatory qualities, which aid in eliminating the bacteria that aggravates the eczema on the skin.
