Has the summer taken a toll on your skin? The scorching sun, warmer than usual temps, and itchy bug bites and scrapes can all impact the ability of the body’s largest organ to operate as an effective protective barrier. Here’s where homeopathic medicines can help.
Boiron’s line of Calendula topicals are useful for a variety of seasonal skin irritations.* Calendula Cream can be applied after sun or wind exposure and other conditions like chafing that require moisturizing the skin.* Calendula Ointment adheres to skin longer so use it for chapped skin and lips; scrapes and cuts; minor burns; and, blisters.* Calendula Gel, a non-greasy, water-based topical, is quickly absorbed by the skin and can soothe razor burn, insect bites, and stings.*
Unfortunately, bug bites are an inevitable part of summer. Ledum palustre 30C can help if your skin becomes itchy and swollen from a mosquito bite.* If you are stung by a wasp or bitten by a chigger, use Apis mellifica 30C for swelling, itching, and burning.*
Prickly heat? Apis mellifica 30C helps relieve skin rashes with swollen, itchy skin that’s improved by cold applications.* If skin rashes are itchy and hypersensitive to the touch*, then use Staphysagria 6C.
