With National Eczema Week just around the corner we thought it would be a good time to give some eczema help for those people with our top tips for eczema.
First of all don’t panic, try to relax, stress won’t help your eczema but following these few tips should.
There is no eczema cure, however many people claim that they have the miracle cure for eczema but don’t panic as it can be managed or controlled.
Bathing is good for the skin, and is great for relaxation. However, it’s most important that you use lukewarm water and a chemical free, natural soap, such as the Deep Cleanser Therapy Bar.
Sweat can irritate eczema so it’s essential that you keep cool. Keep out of direct sunlight.
Apply cold compresses to the skin at times when you just have to scratch this will calm your skin for a short time and prevent you from scratching.
We can’t say this enough… Eczema skin needs moisturising as often as possible with a natural moisturiser or emollient.
Try your best to discover and avoid triggers that cause your skin to flare up.
Know your ingredients
Many soaps, shampoos, skincare products, make up, detergents and even some eczema treatment courses can contain harsh chemicals, perfumes and colours that can harm your skin. Check the ingredients and go for natural products and parabens free where ever you can. If the supplier doesn’t list the ingredients, alarm bells might ring. We at Syrinx Za are proud to show our ingredients on our website.
- Wear loose cotton clothing
- Wash clothes with a non-bio liquid tablet or powder
- Do not add fragranced sheets to the tumble drier
Do not scratch
Eczema sufferers do get fed up with hearing that sentence but scratching really does make eczema worse and can lead to infection. Keeping nails short and hands clean will help. Eczema is known as the itch that rashes, not the rash that itches. Reduce itching by following a natural skincare routine using an eczema treatment
Every eczema sufferer reacts differently to various products so sometimes it will need some trial and error until you find the correct detergent or cleaning product. This can be very frustrating but try to keep to these guidelines and hopefully this will reduce any flare-up’s you might have.
