Dear Mama Tenza,
My son caught chicken pox and now his skin is just awful. He has spots and flake-like stuff everywhere. There’s no cream I can use to put all over him. The tube would be finished in one use. My son is a cute, little boy and I can’t let him grow up with blemishes. What if he develops self-esteem issues? Or gets bullied? I can’t let that happen! He’s only 4 years old but bright like 40!

Oh Putus, I totally understand how you feel but you don’t have to worry too much about scars. Just ensure that you purge his inside and cleanse his skin.

How? Here are a few remedies

  • Drink Aloe Juice.

Cut a hand of Aloe Vera, put it in water and let it sit overnight. Give him one tbsp. every morning each day. Keep him off mucus building foods such as ice cream and cheese.  The mucus is what causes the pimples, what happens is the anti-inflammatory agents in the Aloe Vera will expel the mucus through his pores, if he has too much oils,  fats and mucus then his skin will show it.

To help to rid the blemishes on his skin you could try:

  • Turmeric and honey scrub for his face. Very safe and healthy, brightens and awakens complexion. Exfoliates skin therefore removing dead skin and making room for new fresh skin cells.
  • Cocoa butter & sugar scrub– After bathing use scrub to exfoliate the body.
  • Moisturize skin with Shea butter after bathing- moisturize with raw shea butter to help get rid of scars, rejuvenate the skin and enhance its smoothness and natural glow.

Ensure that he drinks at least 8 cups of water a day and limit the amount of sugar he consumes. Mommy, be positive, he’ll be fine!  Live well Mommy Glow, don’t be disheartened by blemishes!
