Eczema Remedies. 7 Great Strategies to Relieve Eczema/Dermatitis.

Dermatitis or eczema is a sort of inflammation of the skin.  Dryness and recurring skin rashes, redness, swelling, itching, crusting, flaking and cracking are some of the symptoms.

The cause of eczema is unknown.  What we know is that it can be triggered by allergens, environmental toxins, external irritants like soaps, laundry detergents, household chemicals, metals, fabric softeners etc.

Eczema prone skin is likely to be producing less fats and oils, and its ability to retain water is diminished. The space between cells widens since they aren’t plump with moisture and water from the dermis is lost so irritants and bacteria find an easy entrance. This is why soaps and detergents trigger or worsen eczema, as they strip away the oil that skin is producing making skin fragile, dry, inflamed or cracked.

While psoriasis is often linked with external allergic triggers, eczema is often caused by food allergies.

Atopic eczema is most common in children, but can be present in adult years.  There is no quick fix, but figuring out what causes it to flare up and treating the symptoms is usually the best course of action to take.

7 Strategies to Relieve Eczema

1)     Avoid Exposure to Toxins & Irritants. Especially Avoid Steroid Creams.

Harsh soaps, laundry detergents, washing liquids, fabric softeners, household chemicals, metals, etc should be avoided at all costs and replaced by mild and natural alternatives.

The steroid (corticosteroid) creams are the most common prescription treatment.  The steroid creams do work initially, but after a while they cease to work. These creams contain synthetic steroids, which are absorbed into the skin, and can wreak serious havoc with our adrenal system.

2)     Address Food Allergies by Conducting Wheat, Milk & Eggs Elimination Trial Diets

Wheat, Eggs and Milk are the most common suspects, thus conducting the elimination diet trial is very beneficial for all of these agents.

I suggest starting with wheat elimination diet as wheat (gluten) is one of the most common offending agents. A gluten-free diet in duration of couple of weeks should lead to some improvements if wheat happens to be your eczema trigger.  Avoiding grains in addition could be a bonus, as this will normalize the insulin levels and reduce the skin inflammation. In case there is no improvement, the wheat can be slowly reintroduced. The elimination process is then followed in the same manner for milk and eggs (one after the other).

Food Intolerance Test is another great approach to addressing allergies. I used http://www.testyourintolerance.com/ and like it because it is non-invasive and very broad: the testing is done against more than 600 food and non-food substances based on couple of hair samples.

3)     Add Vitamins & Supplements

Hydrating your skin from the inside out is very important. It is best done by by consuming high quality, animal-based omega-3 fats like wild salmon, krill oil or fish oil and it has been shown to lessen the severity of some people’s eczema, particularly the itching.

Including Evening Primrose (gamma linoleic acid) oil works miracles for some people.

Vitamin D in the form of sun exposure is extremely healthy especially for psoriasis.

High-quality Probiotic and/or taking enough fermented foods is another good strategy in optimizing the health of the gut and preventing skin conditions.

4)     Chamomile/ Oatmeal Bath

Chamomile is incredible at soothing the skin, it reduces inflammation, tames itchiness, and heals cracked skin. Place 4-6 tablespoons of dried (German) chamomile flowers with oatmeal (optional) in the cheesecloth or muslin and tie off. Run hot water over it and let it cool down. Soak for 20 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. Pat dry with a towel and apply your regular moisturizer as needed.

5)     Pure, Raw Honey

Honey is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, helps speed up the healing process of broken skin, and it is a humectant (draws water to it). Apply a thin layer of honey over the affected area. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes then rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Make sure you use pure, raw honey.

6)     Ensure Constant & Proper Skin Hydration

When it comes to soothing those dry, itchy, painful patches of skin, nothing can really take the place of a good salve. I have been in the search for a good salve for years and this is the one that combines some great healing ingredients: Shea butter, Calendula, Beeswax, Lavender, Cedarwood and Geranium essential oils. Raw organic shea butter has been used as a base, as it represents one of the best moisturizers and has a high content of fatty acids with wonderful ability to repair, heal, and soften the damaged skin. It can also help reduce inflammation, which is huge when it comes to eczema. Shea butter, in addition, does a great job of penetrating the skin and filling in the intercellular space that has opened up and caused the skin to lose moisture.

  • 35 g raw organic shea butter
  • 15 g calendula infused organic oil
  • 5 g yellow pure beeswax
  • 10 drops organic lavender essential oil
  • 6 drops organic geranium essential oil
  • 3 drops organic cedarwood essential oil

Melt beeswax and oils in double boiler, cool down a little and stir in the essential oils.

7)     Keep Track of Possible Offenders

Keep a little log book and track what you are doing and eating, when you have flare-ups or you notice any discomfort. Track your diet, and any products that you may have used (e.g. new cream, shampoo, detergent, hand soap, medication and similar). Eventually you may see a pattern that will give you a better sense of what to avoid and how best to manage your eczema.

I wish you success in managing your skin conditions and hope this article helps a tiny little bit.

Get Rid of Cellulite Naturally. 6-Step Ritual.

Unlocking a New, Cellulite-Free You.

6- Step Ritual To Get That Perfect Summer Body.

IMG_6891Most women of all ages and sizes have at least a few orange-peel patches of skin.

Many experts believe that cellulite is caused by a combination of factors including poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, hormonal imbalance and aging.

The researchers found that individuals who had chronically elevated cortisol (stress hormone) levels were much more likely to have cellulite accumulation.

Some experts believe that the female hormone estrogen is one of the main culprits (also the reason why men don’t get the dreaded dimples).

Liposuction Is Not The Answer

Cosmetic surgery is at an all-time high with over 11 million cosmetic procedures performed in 2013 only in the US. Most of these surgeries have focused on eliminating cellulite, in fact the liposuction tops the list with 363,912 procedures performed. Source

However, the surgeries are not only dangerous but they never address the root cause of the issue.

The Cellulite-Free Regimen.

This regimen contains a series of effective strategies for greatly diminishing the appearance of cellulite.

Depending on how deep and extensive the root causes are, the regimen needs to be performed anywhere between three and six weeks to show the visible results.

Prepare Your Body

  1. Diet. Eat healthy food and balanced diet with plenty of raw vegetables & free range meat. Vegetables and fruits need to be fresh, ideally organic, and locally grown. Eat loads of antioxidant-rich foods, such as oranges, strawberries, broccoli, and tomatoes  which all contain vitamin C – important for restoration of skin structure.  Eat more apples. The pectin in apples helps detoxifying the digestive tract by making you go to the toilet more often. Pears, bananas, citrus fruits, carrots and cabbage all contain pectin.
  2. Fresh juices. Citrus Tonic – this miraculous drink will help you melt your cellulite. Another good choice is a Miracle Drink is wonderful for your skin as they contain carotenoids, which give red, orange, and yellow fruits their color, and also occur in green vegetables.
  3. Supplements. Add 1000mg of vitamin C, Vitamin E and complex of vitamin B (avoid those derived from yeast). Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin A are also important and their intake is preferably ensured through the right food choices (1 & 2).
  4. Exercise. Exercise  will burn off fat and improve your muscle tone, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite. Perform exercise that engages cellulite areas like squat, step-up etc. Sweat it out in the gym, then hop into the sauna to open up your sweat pores thereby increasing the elimination of toxins. Practice some deep breathing; this will not only relax you, but will improve your circulation and oxygenate the body. Also try to get some fresh air every day.
  5. Relaxation. Practice meditation, yoga or any other exercise that focuses on deep relaxation.
  6. Cut down on the toxins.  Cut down on coffee, alcohol, foods with lots of chemical additives and over-processed foods. No DIARY from cows.
  7. Water. Drink spring water, lemon water (squeeze a lemon or add 1 drop of lemon EO), detox teas. I like starting my day with Honey Apple Cider Vinegar Syrup that is excellent aid in speeding up the metabolism and process of burning fat.

The ritual is made of 6 steps each of which designed to get rid of cellulite effectively.

You’d need at least an hour and a half a day to follow the ritual as described, but it is well worth it 🙂

Step 1. Skin Brushing.

IMG_7373Dry-skin brushing with a natural brush has long been known as one of the best ways to reduce cellulite naturally. Brushing will increase the blood circulation, break down fatty tissues and open the toxins elimination channels. You can buy a natural bristle brush in many health stores. The brushing should be done for minimum of 5-10 minutes starting from your toes and moving upwards. Always brush towards your heart, which is best for circulation and your lymphatic system. Brush your entire body: start at your feet and work your way up your legs to your arms, chest, back, and stomach. Avoid brushing your face (unless you have a facial delicate brush).

Step 2. Coffee Scrub.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/226447232/smooth-anti-cellulite-coffee-scrubWhilst drinking coffee should be avoided during the regimen, when used on the skin, coffee reduces the appearance of cellulite. Caffeine helps with drawing out excess moisture from the skin, giving your skin a firmer and smoother appearance. Also note that Juniper berry, Grapefruit, Lemon, Fennel, Oregano Essential Oils are one of the best known remedies used in fighting and preventing the cellulite.

The Coffee Scrub will be absorbed by the skin and in return will improve circulation & collagen production and prevent premature aging. You can make your own coffee scrub, there are plenty of recipes on the net, or we can make it for you.  Order it here: Anti-Cellulite Coffee Scrub

Step 3. Take Aromatherapy Daily Bath.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/226454162/smooth-anti-cellulite-bath-saltstoxinsFill the bath tub with hot water (as hot as you can take it) and put 15-20 drops of the Anti-Cellulite Massage & Bath Oil that preferably contains Juniper berry, Lemon, Grapefruit, Fennel, Rosemary etc.  This aromatherapy bath will enable your body to absorb nicely the essential oils that have cellulite fighting and healing properties.

Twice a week, instead of Anti-Cellulite Massage &Bath Oil, you can use Anti-Cellulite Bath Salts preferably enriched with a blend of essential oils that stimulate toxins elimination. Epsom salts for example make you sweat out toxins, while relieving aching muscles. The cellulite areas need to be massaged while they are under water.

You can buy Anti-Cellulite Oil  and Bath Salts or we can make it for you. Order it here:  Anti-Cellulite Massage & Bath Oil  and  Anti-Cellulite Bath Salts

Step 4. Cold Shower Drainage.

The bath should be followed by a cold shower drainage. Turn the shower on cold (yes cold :), or as cold as you can take) and use the water pressure to massage the legs (focus on thighs), then abdomen (circular movement) and then up the inner arms to the armpit. This will further improve the circulation.

Step 5. Apply Seaweed or Cabbage Poultice.

(Optional step, for difficult and stubborn cellulite cases. If you decide to do it,  you need to prepare it in advance)

Take some grated cabbage or seaweed, iron them between 2 pieces of gauze, cool a little and keep on the skin for 10-15 minutes.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/226464692/smooth-organic-anti-cellulite-massageStep 6. Apply the Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil.

The Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil is massaged with circular movements into the skin and left for 5 minutes. If there is any excess oil left, wipe it off with a gentle cloth. If your skin is still dry you can follow with body butters that contain coconut oil, raw shea butter, raw cocoa butter or similar.

The Anti-Cellulite 6-step Ritual is best to be performed once a day. If you decide to try it let me know how it went.

Unlocking A New, Cellulite Free You.

Most women want the results fast and prefer some short term focused protocol even though they know it will bring only some temporary results. So for those wanting a cellulite-free body only for the summer the regimen as outlined above should do.

You’ve guessed that  “The (long-term)  Cellulite-Free New You” requires a personal revolution in how you live your life. For those willing to revolutionary change the lifestyle and the way of eating I recommend Step-by-Step Practical Guide to Longer and Healthier Life

Best of luck!
