Eczema Relief: Natural Remedies and Skin Care Tips

Living with eczema can be challenging, but with the right skincare routine and lifestyle changes, you can effectively manage its symptoms. Here are some useful tips to help soothe and protect your skin:

1. Stay Hydrated

  • Importance of Water: Hydration is key! Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
  • Daily Intake: Aim for at least half your body weight in ounces daily. For eczema sufferers, consider increasing this amount.

2. Regular Exfoliation

  • Removal of Dead Cells: Regular exfoliation helps eliminate dead skin cells and improves skin hydration.
  • Gentle Exfoliants: Opt for gentle exfoliating products to avoid irritating your skin.

3. Moisturize with Natural Products

  • Natural Moisturizers: Use products with natural ingredients like aloe vera juice, coconut milk, and natural oils.
  • Avoid Petroleum Jelly: Petroleum-based products can trap moisture but also block pores and prevent toxin removal.

4. Choose Natural Butters and Oils

  • Butters for Moisture: Shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter are great for locking in moisture.
  • Natural Oils: Use oils like castor oil as natural alternatives to petroleum-based products.

5. Be Mindful of Product Ingredients

  • Avoid Sulfates: Choose sulfate-free soaps and shower gels to maintain your skin’s natural oils.
  • pH Balanced Products: Look for products that are pH balanced for optimal skin health.

6. Sun Exposure and Vitamin D

  • Sunlight Benefits: Get some sun for natural Vitamin D, which can improve eczema symptoms.
  • Vitamin D Supplements: Consider supplements, especially during winter or in low-sunlight areas.

7. Diet and Lifestyle

  • Rainbow Diet: Incorporate a variety of fruits and vegetables for their enzymes and antioxidants.
  • Rest and Sleep: Ensure adequate sleep for natural rejuvenation and healing.

8. Natural Soap Choices

  • Vegetable Glycerine Soaps: Opt for soaps with natural glycerine for added moisture.
  • Handcrafted Soaps: Handcrafted soaps often retain natural glycerine, beneficial for eczema.

9. Bathing Tips

  • Gentle Cleansing: Use mild, moisture-rich soaps.
  • Moisturize Post-Bath: Apply a natural shea butter cream or similar product immediately after bathing.

10. Laundry Considerations

  • Sensitive Laundry Soap: Switch to a chemical and dye-free laundry detergent.
  • DIY Laundry Soap: Consider making your own laundry soap with natural ingredients.

11. Regular Skin Exfoliation (Post-Recovery)

  • Coffee Scrub Recipe: Use a gentle coffee scrub made with honey, ground oat powder, and shea butter, but only after your skin has healed.

12. Continuous Skin Protection

  • Daily Moisturizing: Maintain your skin's health with a light, natural, and organic body moisturizer.


Managing eczema involves a holistic approach that includes skincare, diet, hydration, and lifestyle adjustments. By following these tips and paying attention to the products you use, you can help alleviate the symptoms of eczema and maintain healthy skin.

Remember, everyone's skin is different. It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying new treatments, especially if you have known allergens or are considering supplements.
