For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from eczema and severe allergies. I have always had to be so careful about what products I use because there was a chance my skin could react negatively. It wasn’t until recently where my eczema was so severe that the rashes on my legs wouldn’t go away that I decided it was time to find a way to start treating it. I tried so many suggestions I had found online until I found the combination that healed my skin. I haven’t experienced another eczema breakout since. If you’re like me and suffer from eczema, allergies, sensitive skin, or all three, follow along to find out how to pamper your skin back to perfection!
A nice, relaxing, warm bath with Epsom salts is a must if you have eczema. The one product that has worked wonders for me is Village Naturals Ultra-Softening Bath Salt. Why did I choose this product? Well, the ingredients not on include Epsom salt, but also Dead Sea Salt and Lavender. Both of these in combination with Epsom salt has been known to drastically improve the symptoms of eczema. Although I tend to stay away from all scented products, the Lavender not only smells great but has helped to relieve my skin irritations.
How to use:
Pour a generous amount under warm running water. I normally use about two caps full, but the amount depends on the size of your bath tub. Allow the salt to dissolve and soak for 20 minutes a day until your skin has healed. To maintain your silky smooth skin, continue the baths once or twice a week.
Not only are these bath salts great for healing eczema or sensitive skin, but they are also great for days you want to pamper yourself and give yourself a pedicure. I love how soft these bath salts make my skin feel!
Sensitive Skin Body Wash
The last tip I have for my fellow skin sufferers is to always use a non-scented sensitive skin body wash. I know it’s disappointing not being able to use those amazing smelling body washes, but those soaps can cause severe irritation to sensitive skin. That’s why it’s so important to use a body wash designed for your skin type. I suffered too many rashes from scented soaps before I realized it just wasn’t worth it. Do the best thing for your skin and always use a non-scented sensitive skin body wash. This also applies to scented lotions as well. I know…bummer!
