How treat eczema naturally
Providing Eczema Relief Naturally
We understand how massively eczema can affect your life. Living with it is a daunting and frustrating journey. You may have many products with little improvement. The conventional approach, after meeting failure with products, may be to resort to steroid creams. However, scientists, dermatologists and green beauty experts who have lived with eczema have come to recognize that eczema requires a more holistic approach.
At Sade Baron, we take a holistic approach to body care. We believe in having a roadmap to healthy skin. Our philosophy isn’t about covering up the skin. We want you to be comfortable in your own body, and to glow naturally, with the confidence that you are healthy.
The skin is a window that is happening in the rest of the body. When there’s stress, ineffective diet patterns, lack of rest, not enough exercise, the skin shows it. Flare-ups are more than just the skin acting alone. They’re tied to the deeper efficacy of the entire human body.
To provide relief for eczema via natural means, listening to your physical cues is the first step.
Your skin is a messenger. As you observe how it behaves when you eat better, exercise more, reduce stress, or find rest, optimize your lifestyle to support happier skin.
The quality and length of sleep you receive every night can have a profound impact on your skin’s overall health. (https://www.sadebaron.com/blogs/body-care/sleep-is-the-beauty-secret-for-mature-skin) During a full night of sleep, the body repairs the skin. As you enter sleep’s final stages, known as REM sleep, the body’s stress hormone (known as cortisol) drops. Always aim for at least 7 hours to activate the body’s natural restorative functions.
This may be easier said than done, when one of eczema’s side effects is disruption of sleep. Self-examination is important here. Adjusting your sleeping hours to give yourself more time to fall asleep may be in order. Changing your bedsheets, adjusting the room’s temperature, or even wearing different pyjamas may also need to happen.
Our vital organs need water throughout the day to function well. But soft drinks, excess coffee, or alcoholic beverages don’t have the same benefits as simple H20. Focus on drinking just water. If you prefer a bit of flavour, infused waters and teas are a better alternative than sugary beverages. Start your mornings with a big glass of water to replenish lost moisture from the previous night.
A happy digestive system is key to happy skin. This is known as the gut-skin axis, and scientists are conducting clinical research to better understand how improving the gut microbiome leads to the clearing up of skin conditions. Listen to your body. Cut down on sugar. Reduce processed foods or instant meals. Ensure you have at least one bowel movement daily. Identify whether particular types of meals lead to flare-ups and plan accordingly.
Find ways to release stress that calm your skin
You may have heard of the usual recommendations—journaling, going for walks, spending time in nature, meditating. Actually, stress management looks different for everyone. For some, this is about management throughout the day, by reducing interactions that have friction.
For others, this may be more about stress release, and ensuring that you undertake fun and carefree activities at the end of a long workweek. Some activities you may be in indulging in might need a shift if they only calm your mind but stress out your skin, like consuming certain foods or drinks.
Use better products on your skin. Which eczema cream is best?
Avoid products that contain parabens, alcohol, and synthetic dyes. Use real soaps rather than detergents—we talked about this in a previous article. (https://www.sadebaron.com/blogs/body-care/soaps-versus-cleansers) Cut out fragrances in your products and opt for creams, lotions or oils that are high in skin-beneficial ingredients. Use natural products made to support the skin’s ability to heal itself.
