Caring for your eczema can be very difficult. Between flare-ups and constant itching, we realize that you might be having a hard time managing it, so we want to help you out with a skincare regimen just for you to help keep your skin feeling clean and fresh.

What IS Eczema?

Eczema is actually very common. There are lots of different types of eczema, too. Eczema makes your skin scaly, red, itchy and inflamed. Living with eczema can be an ongoing challenge, but it is manageable. Furthermore, eczema is NOT contagious. Though the direct cause of eczema is unknown, research shows environmental factors and allergens play a large role in it.

Controlling the Itch

Eczema can be very, very itchy sometimes. Because of this, controlling the itch becomes one of the primary things that must be handled in order to make sure the eczema doesn’t get any worse and that you don’t scratch so much that it bleeds because your skin is so inflamed.

Skin Care for Eczema

You will want to find skin care products that will help soothe your skin and that don’t have things in them that will cause further inflammation. Since bad ingredients vary a little from patient to patient, it’s best if you find out more information about your particular trigger ingredients from a board certified dermatologist.

The Perfect Eczema Routine

We like to think of this as the “perfect” eczema skin care routine, but like we said before, treatment and skin care varies from patient to patient. That being said, we hope you give it a try!

Step One:

Start with a gentle cleanser or splash your face with water.

Step Two:

Use your treatment products, which should include a moisturizer.

Step Three:

Apply Daily Sunscreen

Step Four:

In the evening, wash your face, apply your treatments and follow with a moisturizer.

Have you ever dealt with eczema before? It can be a real struggle. But thankfully, there are lots of products and treatments available now. Have any insight? We’d love to hear from you in the comments!
