Skin irritations, such as skin itching, is a common dermatological complaint. When your skin itches, the tendency is to keep scratching it. This can cause your irritated skin to become red and injured from your nails, which can eventually lead to skin rashes. Skin irritations can be treated at home. You can use many over-the-counter remedies. However, these products contain harsh chemicals that can further irritate your skin. Fortunately, you can use natural ingredients such as cinnamon and honey. These two ingredients contain soothing and antiseptic properties that you can use to help relieve skin irritations.
Take a shower or wash the affected skin with warm water and an antibacterial soap. Avoid scrubbing your skin to prevent further infection. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel after cleaning your skin.
Add 3 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder in a clean bowl. Stir the mixture with a spoon until it turns into a paste. Add more cinnamon powder if you want a thicker mixture.
Scoop a generous amount of the honey-cinnamon mixture with your fingers and apply it directly to the irritated skin areas. Gently massage the mixture into your skin in a circular motion until it dries. Leave the mixture on your skin for five minutes.
Wash your skin with water and soap to remove the sticky mixture. Pat your skin dry after cleaning your skin.
Reapply the mixture as needed.
