Summer is a time for sweating, which can lead to an insanely itchy heat rash! These prickly, itchy, red hot bumps can erupt when our sweat glands become clogged. This often happens when we become overheated. Our body’s cooling mechanism, to sweat, can stop working effectively due to the sweat glands becoming blocked with bacteria and sebum. Then, the sweat becomes trapped under the surface of our skin. Combined with bacteria on our skin, this can cause an itchy heat rash!
Instructions: First take a quick cool shower to rinse off any dirt and grime. Then jump in the tub. Turn on the water, plug the tub, add the oats and salt, and soak in the soothing cool bath.
