Taking Care of Eczema from Outside In: Topical Remedies & Management

Outside In – Protect the Natural Skin Barrier

All of Bellary Nature’s Skin Remedy products are ideal skin care for eczema management and intended to help protect the skin from outside in. In other words, as eczema skin is very sensitive and reacts badly to harsh chemicals found in commercial skin care products, the natural salve is intended to reduce the load and/or possible triggers to your body by giving you a product that is very natural to begin with (with no harsh chemicals); better yet, with all the good and healing properties of the purported therapeutic plant and essential oils.

The dry/flaky/irritated skin conditions common in Eczema can be aided by applying skin care that minimizes the loss of the skin’s natural oils and lipids. Some people report good results with quick warm shower. A bath with use of Epsom Salt/ Himalayan Salt/Sea Salt may also be beneficial. Apply the natural cream to moisturize the skin directly after the shower can help seal in moisture and prevent water loss from the skin.

Topical remedies – alone – will not address the underlying root problems contributing to eczema. Like other skin issues, eczema are complex condition of a variety of causes. Some common things that are helpful include identifying food triggers and also supplementation.

Dairy, wheat, eggs, sugar, food coloring and tomatoes are all common triggers for eczema but there can be other food triggers specific to a child. It works both ways.
