Here are some remedies that are recommended by doctors.

Yogurt contains lactic acid known as a popular natural peeling that makes your skin shiny, but also removes acne, and reduces the color changes of fine lines.
Calm Irritated Skin Quickly
If your skin is irritated sprinkle it with some mineral water. Numerous studies have shown that mineral water is rich in minerals, and actually spring water relieves pain caused by burns or dermatitis. What is more, mineral water is also used in treating redness and itchy feeling after a laser treatment.
Eczema And Psoriasis
Treat eczema and psoriasis by applying olive oil directly on the affected area. Gently massage the area using a teaspoon, until the skin dries completely. Olive oil does not contain any chemical substances that may irritate your skin, and it is the main ingredient in many skin care products. If you are dealing with a serious problem, skip the initial therapy and go to your doctor immediately.
When bitten by mosquitoes, reduce the swelling and the itchy feeling by using aspirin paste. Crush some aspirins and add enough water to dilute it. Apply the paste directly on the mosquito bite.
