Having eczema on your body can be a problem but suffering from eczema on your face can be worse as this is an area that you can’t cover up, leaving you feeling unhappy and possible embarrassed at times. This is where a good skin care routine must come in to combat your sensitive skin.
The skin on your face is the most sensitive, so only using products that specific to this area is vital. Steroids are generally prescribed for eczema but please take care to avoid them as these creams can cause thinning of the skin, lightening or darkening of the skin and sometimes they can also increase your risk of infection. That’s why it’s best to avoid these creams all together, especially on your face.
Stay away from products that contain harsh chemicals such as sulfates, cocomide DEA, parabens, and linalool, these can be found in soaps, body washes and hair shampoos and conditioners.
Having a water filter system installed in your house can help with your sensitive skin; it can protect you from chlorine that is found in water, which can make eczema a lot worse. If you just want a water filter system in the bathroom only then a shower filter is a great idea. This is a perfect investment that will help ease your sensitive skin.
Keeping your skin moisturized is a key component in maintaining the moisture in your face. When your face becomes dehydrated your skin can become prone to flare-ups which can be extremely uncomfortable.
Always moisturize your face after cleansing by using a cream that soothes and helps heal the skin.
An excellent cream that I came across a while ago is ZENMED DermCare which contains oatmeal and aloe vera, it’s perfect for the relief of itchiness and sudden break-outs. DermCare is packed full of nutrients and doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, which means you can use this product on a long-term basis to manage your sensitive skin.
It’s important for you to always be aware of what you put onto your skin, as products that contain chemicals are metabolized by your body and can over-time cause more harm than good.
That is why you should only use natural skin care products that contain naturally derived ingredients to will help combat your sensitive skin and not make the condition worse!
