Eczema is a skin condition that can cause itchy, red and swollen patches of skin on various areas of the body. Flare-ups commonly happen year-round and can be triggered by your everyday environment from factors such as: pollen, clothing, detergents, and cigarette smoke. A key indirect contributor to flare-ups is the changes in weather. Eczema does not fare well in dry weather. With having sensitive skin, it’s important to be cautious of what you’re putting on your body. Some of the ingredients in skin care products can induce or worsen irritation. There’s nothing worse than feeling itchy and uncomfortable all day long.
Here are some tips to help treat eczema and find relief naturally:
Keeping your skin nourished and moisturized is very important if you have eczema. Since the skin condition is one that is prone to severe drying, it’s important to have a moisturizer that will keep skin deeply hydrated. Our dermatologist recommended Eczema Relief Cream is a hypoallergenic, moisturizing cream that relieves scaly, flaky and itchy dry skin associated with Psoriasis and Eczema. A unique blend of restorative Neem Leaf, Colloidal Oatmeal, Bearberry and Burdock Extracts with antioxidant-rich vitamins help to moisturize and soothe hot, irritated skin.
Enriched with the same key ingredients, our dermatologist recommended Eczema Relief Lotion is a fast-absorbing, gluten-free lotion that helps strengthen the skin’s protective barrier while helping to relieve scaly, flaky, and itchy dry skin associated with Psoriasis and Eczema. A unique blend of restorative Neem Leaf, Bearberry and Burdock Extracts with antioxidant-rich vitamins helps to moisturize, calm, and soothe dry skin.
Throughout the day, our bodies sweat, produce oils, and collect pollen. These things can trigger a flare-up or irritate an existing inflamed patch. It's important to bathe with lukewarm water and use a body wash that is gentle yet effective. Try using a body wash that contains Tea Tree, Neem, Burdock, or Bearberry extracts. It will work as a double-action to not only clean your skin but help to soothe skin as well.
Who doesn't like smelling good or using a product that entices your senses? Though the lotion or body wash might smell wonderful, it's not always so great for your skin. Many skin care products that have a fragrance contain harsh chemicals that will immediately trigger eczema and cause great discomfort. Instead, try switching to a natural-base fragrance-free body wash and lotion. The tradeoff is that your skin will feel smooth, nourished, and supple. A great substitute for perfumes is essential oils. They provide a delightful scent and will not aggravate your skin. Feel fresh and clean without the itch!
