If you’ve been around the blog for awhile then you know that I have eczema. Dealing with Eczema can be difficult, however, I’ve found a few ways that not only help my eczema but help me in dealing with eczema quickly so I can get on with my daily life.
Dealing with Eczema
One of the things that I found that helps in dealing with eczema is to exfoliate. Exfoliating helps to remove the dead skin which allows the newer and healthier skin to emerge. I have found that if I exfoliate a couple of times a week with an exfoliating brush and scrub that my eczema patches tend to be less noticeable!
I personally like to get a new exfoliating brush at least once a month for a couple of reasons. First because with all of that dead skin it’s going to get a little impossible to completely sanitize it after to many uses. Second because I find that after to many uses the bristles tend to get a little dull which makes the brush less effective. My favorite brush lately has been this one that has a detachable face exfoliator on the back. I like to use this on days that I don’t want to use my facial cleansing system.
After I exfoliate I like to go in with a moisturizing body wash and then rinse off before getting out of the shower. Once out of the shower I like to let my skin dry, apply a lotion, and then get dressed. However, I started to realize that part of the way through the day my skin would start to feel parched no matter what lotion I used! I started looking into ways to help the lotion sink in and I came across the suggestion of “wet skin moisturizers” and I thought “What the heck is that?!” I found that applying lotion while the skin is wet actually helps the lotion to lock into the skin better as the cells are still open from the water. I should have known that from Cosmetology School (facepalm)! I looked into different wet skin moisturizers and found that the Jergens® Wet Skin™ Moisturizer with Argan Oil 10 oz not only moisturizes the skin but also is supposed to help heal dry skin so I had to jump on that to try!
While I was in the Aiken, SC Walmart I actually decided to pick up two of the Jergen Wet Skin Moisturizers, the Restoring Argan Oil and the Cherry Almond Essence, due to the fact that the Cherry Almond Essence is a Walmart ONLY scent. I’ve used both since having them and I love them for different things.
I find that the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Cherry Almond Essence is good on days that I need a lighter moisturizer, the day after my exfoliating usually, and the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Restoring Argan Oil leaves my skin feeling so soft, smooth, and moisturized when I use it on the days that I exfoliate and the days right before as well.
Changing up my eczema routine to include a wet skin moisturizer has actually really helped me in dealing with eczema. I don’t have to wait to dry off before applying lotion which means the the moisturizer soaks in better leaving my skin super moisturized ALL day and not parched half-way through. I also love that the scent stays with me all day!
