ECZEMA

Understanding eczema (and how you can help soothe it).

If you suffer from eczema, you’ll know it can be pretty uncomfortable. But we've got you. When it comes to skin, we think education (as well as the right skincare) is the best solution. So we spoke to Dr Maryam Borumand to learn more about eczema, its causes and why, when it comes to this delicate skin condition, natural and non-irritating is the way to go.

The Expert

Dr Maryam Borumand has a special interest in the cosmetics field and has carried out extensive research on collagen in particular. Dr. Borumand's knowledge of skin and cosmetics reflect her ethos of guaranteeing results.

What is eczema?

Eczema is diagnosed when areas of skin become inflamed (known as dermatitis). It often affects the face, and skin creases covering joints. The skin texture becomes rough; it’s dry and there is crusting (due to increased shedding of the top layer of skin). The area can be itchy and can bleed from excessive itching. 

What causes eczema?

It could be a genetics thing. The most common type of eczema is commonly found in families prone to atopy (sensitivities to allergens). However, eczema can also result from stress or prolonged dryness of skin. 

why choose natural to treat eczema?

Eczema is a very reactive condition so it's best to stick to calming, high quality formulas. The first thing to remember? Don’t overcomplicate it. Your skin has enough to contend with, so it’s important to keep things simple. The good news? We have plenty of options that tick all the boxes.

Step 1. Cleanse

The thing with eczema is that it doesn’t just affect the skin on your face, so the best place to start is with a suitable wash you can use all over the body. The Organic Calendula Soap by Trevarno consists of cocoa and shea butters and is fragrance-free, so is gentle on the skin and doesn’t cause dryness like normal soap.

Step 2. Exfoliate

The all-important exfoliation. Don’t miss this step if you want to help keep skin clear and decongested. But try a more gentle liquid exfoliant like a BHA to avoid making that angry skin any angrier. Balance Me BHA Exfoliating Concentrate will help reduce pore size, decreasing the risk of bacterial overgrowth on the skin.

Step 2. Moisturise

What eczema-prone skin is crying out for. But this step is an important one to get right. The Unscented Vital Balm Cream by Josh Rosebrook is ideal as it contains aloe vera and other herbal actives (known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties), as well as rich plant oils that help hydrate and repair the protective skin barrier.
