Eczema: How to Approach Your Skincare Routine
Posted by Scentual Aroma on Jul 23rd 2020
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a group of medical conditions that cause dry, discolored, itchy and inflamed skin. Around 30,6 million people (10.1%) in the U.S. have some form of eczema.
While dermatologists don’t point out a single cause for eczema, they indicate several factors associated with this skin condition including overactive immune system and issues with the skin barrier as Dr. Bhutani from University of California, San Francisco Medical Center explains. Symptoms associated with eczema include redness, itchiness, crusty and open patches, flakiness, burning sensation and sensitivity to harsh topical products.
Natural Skin Remedies
Luckily, there are several natural remedies that can help. Gentle skincare and dietary changes will give our bodies the TLC needed to get back on track. Because eczema prone skin types are super sensitive, it is very helpful to use ingredients that are mild, all-natural and derived solely from pure botanical sources as these are super rich in vitamins and minerals similar to our skin structure. At Scentual Aroma, we handcraft our products using pure botanical ingredients that are ultra gentle. Our formulas are fortified with beneficial whole plant constituents that have anti-inflammatory, deep nourishing and restoring properties.
Use Our cold processed soaps instead of conventional soaps or a body washes. These are very nourishing, naturally derived, free of sulfates and synthetic fragrances which will not strip or irritate the skin.
