5 Natural Ways to Fight Off Eczema

Unfortunately sometimes some of our patients either

  • has childhood eczema ie eczema since they're young or
  • they develop eczema later in the years during their work life, maybe due to stress or even specific injuries or accidents

If you suffer from eczema, you want and need to seek relief. 

Sometimes you may opt for expensive over-the-counter products or try prescriptions recommended by your doctor. These may work in the short run, but please consider and don’t discount natural ways to fight off eczema. 

Luckily, there are many natural remedies that have proven effective for treating eczema, 5 of which are outlined below.

Natural Remedy for Eczema #1
showering and Bathing Properly

Proper bathing and showering is key to not only treating eczema, but also will help you to prevent more eczema and dry skin outbreaks. 

Most medical professionals recommend short showers or baths. Lukewarm water with no bath bubbles is advised. Eczema suffers should also limit the amount of scented shampoo, conditioner, and soap they use.

Opt for all-natural or organic instead. 

The reason for this is because many of the scented shower or bath gels contain a lot of chemicals which may cause/react with your skin to cause or aggravate

  • dry skin
  • cracked skin
  • eczema breakouts and flare-ups

Although not necessarily an all-natural cure, lotions and creams should be applied immediately following a bath or shower to lock in the moisture.

Research has shown that all-natural eczema treatment systems, such as Eczema Vanished, are a natural and successful way to seek relief. You can learn more at EczemaVanished.com.

Natural Remedy for Eczema #2
Drink lots of Water

Lukewarm baths and showers have their benefits because they moisturize the skin. Good quality skin lotions and creams can also help to keep this moisture locked in. 

But you know what, don’t just moisture your body from the outside, but the inside too. 

The most natural and easiest way to do so is to drink lots of water.  Keep your body hydrated and it will help your skin, making eczema easier to manage.

We recommend using Aquasana table top water purifier which is affordable and creates delicious, filtered water.

Natural Remedy for Eczema #3
Take Oatmeal Baths

The 2 points above recommended short baths and showers...but the only exception to this is when oatmeal is used. 

Oatmeal tends to have a calming effect on the skin. 

There are all-natural oatmeal bath product sold at most department stores and drug stores, but you can easily make your own mixture. Honestly, the oatmeal sold at supermarkets will do.  Add two or three cups to a bathtub filled with lukewarm water, and then

  • soak in it
  • shower in it

Yep, do this as often as you can.

Natural Remedy for Eczema #4
Watch What You eat

Watching what you eat is a very powerful, effective and of course, natural way to fight off eczema. 

Unfortunately, you may run into some problems. 

You want to eat skin healthy foods, but did you know that some of these foods may trigger an eczema outbreak or flare-up?

For example, fruits are known to help against premature aging, but seeded fruits are a common eczema cause. 

So consider doing this: keep a daily log of your food and drink consumption. This will become like a food and eczema diary which you can then use to determine what you ate or drank before each outbreak. 

Then once you start to look and study the patterns and outbreaks, you then can experiment and permanently adjusting your eating habits for the good of your skin (and say good bye to eczema for the long term too!)

Natural Remedy for Eczema #5
Use All Natural Supplements

All-natural supplements have proven helpful in many eczema patients.  In fact, some swear by them.  What you want to do is research natural supplements that can help treat or cure eczema.  Good examples include

fish oil, vitamin E, and vitamin C. 

They're pretty affordable and deliver world-wide.

Try them and then work on adding those supplements into your diet and life. In fact, do so slowly and one at a time, so you know which works for you and your skin, and which doesn’t. 

Supplements come in over-the-counter format, but most are found naturally in foods too.

Research has shown that all-natural eczema treatment systems, such as Eczema Vanished, are a natural and successful way to seek relief. You can learn more at EczemaVanished.com.
