Many Eczema sufferers are unaware that sometimes good skincare regimes are all that stand between endless suffering and improved quality of life. The simplest of changes and techniques can make all the difference, so we have put together a few tips to help you out hopefully.
Fix Your Baby's Diet -
There’s a whole lot more to skin care than just fancy creams and lotions. Real skincare starts on the inside-if you give your body the tools it needs to fix the Eczema damaged skin, you will have a definite advantage. Continuing to eat the wrong foods while trying to clear up your Eczema is like trying to run your car without gasoline! It just can’t get going! Scientists have found that foods with high acidity linking to increased Eczema symptoms. For some reason, high acid content makes the skin more prone to irritation, which brings on the Eczema. You can avoid this by obviously steering clear of acidy foods, which is easier than it sounds. A dietician should be able to guide you the right way, though. Fear not though, there is a much simpler way to improve these too-kelp supplements. Kelp is very high in alkali, which will neutralize the acid it finds in your system so that you may find relief.
Moisturize Regularly -
It would be best if you could moisturize your baby's skin at least twice a day, preferably after taking a bath or shower. Moisturizers are great for baby's delicate skin because the more moisture there is inside it, the suppler it will be, and soft, supple skin is far less likely to crack and itch than dry, flaky skin. You need to apply the moisturizer for your baby after bathing or showering because this will help lock in the moisture from the bath. It would help if you patted your little precious one almost dry with a very soft towel, and then apply the moisturizer to damp skin. It’s a little harder to rub in, but it’s worth it in the long run!
Protect Your Baby -
Be aware of all the things that can trigger your baby's Eczema, and do your best to avoid them. As a general rule, avoid wearing any perfume or scent and all scented soaps or toiletries. You will also probably find a little relief if you can get rid of all the perfumed detergents in your home. If you can wash your baby's clothing in unscented natural soaps, you will probably find that your baby will feel suddenly not so itchy!
As we've tried to illustrate here, you don’t have to go to considerable lengths to get some control in the battle against your baby's Eczema. In most cases, all you need is some consistency. I hope these tips bring you some relief but remember to be consistent!
