Atopic Dermatitis/Eczema Fix: 5 Unique Moisturizing Hacks

When you hear Atopic Dermatitis, do your thoughts instantly spiral to flaky, itchy, and distressed skin? Yep, that is eczema for you. But today, let’s ditch the dread and embrace some exciting, out-of-the-box moisturizing methods.

Here are some tips that can help you keep Atopic Dermatitis or eczema at bay:

5. The Luxurious Layering

Have you ever tried on outfits and realized layering up gives you that ultimate chic look? Let’s bring that fashion-forward concept to skincare.

Layer One: The Foundation. Begin with a hydration-packed serum. Think of this as your base layer, prepping your skin for the magic to follow. With its lightweight consistency, it quickly seeps into the skin, delivering that initial dose of moisture.

Layer Two: The Seal. Once your serum is absorbed, enter the heavy-hitters: Creams or ointments. These are like that snug overcoat, sealing in the previous layer and ensuring all-day hydration.

4. Use Manuka Honey

From breakfast tables in New Zealand to global skincare routines, Manuka Honey is the trending talk of the town. Unlike its regular counterpart, Manuka honey boasts intense antibacterial and healing properties. It is not just a sweet treat but a balm for distressed skin.

Making Manuka a regular in your skincare regime can gradually improve the skin’s texture. Its anti-inflammatory properties help calm flare-ups while moisturizing the skin. So, is more like nature’s way of pampering your skin.

3. Herbal Oil Elixirs

Remember the magical potions from fairy tales? This is our real-world rendition – combining oils with the goodness of herbs.

Start with a carrier oil, like jojoba, almond, or coconut. They are nourishing and work wonders for eczema-afflicted skin. But why stop at just oils?

Elevate these oils by infusing them with herbs. Calendula, known for its skin-loving properties, and chamomile, celebrated for its soothing effects, are perfect choices. Steep the dried herbs in the oil for several weeks. Once strained, you have a bespoke oil infusion tailored for eczema relief.

2. Dive Into Oatmeal Soaks

Oats are not just heart-healthy breakfast stars; they are also unsung skincare heroes, especially for those with Atopic Dermatitis.

Colloidal oatmeal (that is just a fancy term for finely ground oatmeal) is a natural remedy for itchy, irritated skin. It provides a barrier against irritants and hydrates the skin. And when added to baths? Pure bliss.

Ideally, create your own oat-infused bath experience. Mix colloidal oatmeal with water to form a paste. Add this to your bath, and maybe a few drops of lavender essential oil for added relaxation. Soak in, and let your skin sip on this hydrating concoction.

1. Icy Aloe Vera Treats

Combining the best of both worlds – the healing touch of aloe vera and the refreshing coolness of ice. Aloe vera, with its anti-inflammatory properties, is an eczema warrior. It can provide instant relief from skin irritation. But instead of just slathering on a gel, why not level up?

Pour aloe vera gel into ice cube trays and freeze. These frosty cubes can be your go-to relief during painful flare-ups. Gently rub them on affected areas, and feel the coolness soothe and hydrate. It is a simple trick, but the relief? Immense.
