My Skincare Routine
Skin care is a huge part of your life when you have eczema. You never know what will work or won’t work, if you’ll have an allergic reaction to something, or if a balm will have a weird smell, etc. Finding a good product is tough, as is putting together a routine and sticking to it.
It took me a long while to find a good skin care routine and I still struggle with keeping up on it. Plus, I’m not just taking care of my eczema, I take care of my face as well so my acne doesn’t go out of control.
Morning skincare routine
After I wake up, I wash my face and eczema with a charcoal facial bar. Next, I apply Earthley's Clear Skin Essential Oil on my acne and blemishes. It's a natural blend of herbs that doesn't dry my skin out.
Charcoal soap is great and it leaves my face feeling soft and clean. I’ve noticed it helps clean my eczema as well!
Earthley's Clear Skin Essential Oil
The Clear Skin Essential Oil has helped my acne amazingly. It reduces the redness of my face and my blemishes have slowly been going away. I will admit though, the scent is a bit strong. If I accidentally put too much on I’ll get a slight headache. However, because it is helping my acne, I have chosen to power through the smell though.
Throughout the day I apply Hempz’s Original Herbal Body Moisturizer to my hands and eczema. As needed, I apply Earthley's Soothing Skin Balm to my eczema.
Moisturizing my hands is important when you consider how often I wash my hands throughout the day. With the worst of my eczema being located on my wrist, I need to keep the area as clean as possible without completely drying out my skin.
Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturizer
Hempz leaves my hands feeling nice and soft and it keeps my eczema from getting scaly. Plus the scent is just delightful.
How often do you downplay your eczema to other people?
