1 Sudocrem
Every home should have a pot of this – and not just for rashes and eczema. Dab a blob onto angry spots before you go to bed and see them drastically reduce overnight.

2 Oatmeal
Forget cleansers that contain environment-harming microbeads. This healthy breakfast option is also a great natural exfoliant. Just pop it in a blender to get finer pieces, and then mix with a little cold water.

3 Coconut oil
Not just a great choice for cooking. For dull, dry skin, gently warm a couple of tablespoons of this oil in the microwave before massaging into your skin for several minutes. Rinse with warm water.

4 Get some sun
Safely, obviously, but a little bit of time with your skin exposed to the sun can help with conditions such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.

5 Get in the sea
Sea water is often cited as improving conditions such as dry skin, redness and roughness, as well as eczema and acne.
