Today I'm sharing some stuff we love for eczema. First up, I'll show you some really good natural care products.
Let me just say, "Coconut Oil...I Love You."
A few months ago, a friend suggested we try some organic coconut extra virgin oil. I had heard of coconut oil before and all its great uses, but I had not yet purchased it to try. It has many uses for cooking, baking and personal beauty & health too (I might do a future post on this).
I bought a large jar from Sam's Club, and I put a couple of spoonfuls into a little metal jar (makes it easy to dip in and apply on the skin). I love the way it smells (I'm a big fan of coconut), and it rubs into the skin really easily. Plus, a little goes a long way (always nice). However, it does leave a greasy feel. The benefits outweigh the greasiness, though.
Next up is this Eczema Repair Serum from Crimson Hill. This is a specially formulated serum that Angie made specifically for moderate eczema. If you want to try some, you need to request it as a custom order. It's a liquid serum with all natural ingredients - intense & potent, in a good way. Again,as with the coconut oil, a little of this stuff goes a looooong way, and it's GOOD STUFF! The tea tree oil in it can be a bit strong, so Angie adds just a dab of essential oil to mask the strong scent.
Eczema SerumThis two-ounce jar lasts a very long time, and it fights off infection really well (from our experience). My son is infection-prone, because his skin is often broken (with open sores). The serum can be applied to the broken skin. It's soothing and dry, irritated skin just soaks it up.
If you have only mild to moderate eczema, Crimson Hill's Dry Skin Repair Balm will be just what you need. We use this on the skin in between applications of the Eczema Serum. The balm is great for any skin type, though - not just eczema. It literally melts into the skin when applied. This is one that we like to keep with us at all times.
We'll be sharing some more of our favorites later in the week, so stay tuned!
How was your weekend? What do you use for dry skin?
