Those with these auto-immune skin conditions frequently struggle with flare-ups of inflamed and flaky skin. Unfortunately there still is no cure for Eczema and Psoriasis. Neem treatments, however, can be used to alleviate intense dry, inflamed, and itchy skin
Neem oil (which comes from the Neem tree) is a natural (non-petroleum) alternative and is commonly used in creams and in moisturizers to sooth skin inflammation. Laura at Lovely Greens, shares her recipe for Handmade Healing Cream for Eczema and Psoriasis. While lotions and creams with Neem can be purchased over-the-counter, you can make your own and manage how much Neem oil you use with her recipe. Also making your own cream allows you to control all the other ingredients so you can create an all-natural moisturizer for your skin.
