All you need to know about dealing with Eczema

excema

Only those suffering with Eczema can understand how hard it can be to deal with.

Between flare-ups, the skin tends to be dry and itchy resulting in an irresistible urge to scratch.
Eczema flare-ups are mostly triggered by environmental factors.

Eczema Triggers include:

  • Perfumes
  • Stress
  • Soaps and detergents
  • Animals
  • Pollens
  • Sweating
  • House dust mites
  • Chemical agents
  • Cosmetics
  • Animals( fur, hair and saliva)

How to deal with Eczema?

Get a good night’s sleep – People living with eczema often find the urge to itch at night. Try keeping the bedroom window open and keep any heating to a minimum. Use cotton bedding as it tends to irritate skin less than other mixed fabrics.

Watch what you wear – When choosing what to wear you should consider the fabric and it’s fit. Some clothing can irritate your skin resulting flare-ups.

Minimize stress – Stress can cause eczema to become inflamed so managing this can help you control your eczema. Making sure you get enough sleep and talking with others that live with ezcema can really be helpful.

Moisturize – Often, keeping your skin moisturized is the key to managing your eczema. Use a plain unscented moisturizer to keep your skin soft and moisturized.

Manage weather changes – Eczema reacts badly to rapid changes in temperature. High humidity can lead to symptoms similar to prickly heat which may dry the skin out. Things like central heating in winter can also be a trigger.

Drink lots of water before, after and during exercise. Those with eczema will have inherently dry skin so it’s important to hydrate yourself when exercising to replace the water.

Caring for your skin organically

You may already be aware that many commercially available cosmetic products we use in daily life contain chemicals which are toxic to your skin.

They may change your appearance in the short term, but using these products long term can damage your skin. It’s always preferable to choose organic products or natural methods to take care of your skin.

Very popular natural techniques include

  • drinking plenty of water
  • eating fresh fruits and vegetables
  • using products from nature like fuller’s earth (MultaniMitti), lemon, honey, rose water, etc. to apply on your skin
  • avoiding sun exposure
  • playing sport or doing heavy physical activity to encourage sweating

Apart from these natural techniques for keeping your skin healthy, here are some other ways you can improve your skin without it being harmful to your health.

1. Use Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy uses plant extracts and essential natural oils to cleanse and nourish your skin. It’s an ideal treatment for premature aging. The use of potent natural extracts provides many therapeutic benefits.

2. Use Phytochemicals

When using any product for skin care it is important that they penetrate your skin to the dermal layers and also act in other layers. Phytochemicals are compounds found in plants which have essential nutrients required for the skin. They are tiny in size and can penetrate the skin.

3. Live a stress-free life

Todays’s fast-paced lifestyle results in the release high levels of cortisol and adrenaline in your body which works against the natural mechanism. It affects the immune system which makes you prone to illness. This change in the chemicals released in our body also affects the skin. Therefore, try to live a life free from stress. Don’t take life too seriously! Be grateful if you have the necessities of life.

4. Eat Healthily

Your skin is the body’s largest organ. Whatever goes into your body will affect your skin. If your diet lacks important nutrients, this will be reflected in your skin. No matter how expensive the natural products are that you apply externally, it is important to take care of your skin from the inside.

5. Apply Natural Oils

Use oils which are made from cold pressed seeds. These are rich in natural antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. Omega based plant oils can minimise the effects of ageing and skin disorders by reducing inflammation and balancing excess oil levels.
