If you are one the 30 million-plus people who live with eczema, you know the itch-scratch cycle all too well.

It starts with an itch that leads to a scratch. The scratch, in turn, makes the rash even worse, causing more inflammation and more scratching.

There is no cure for eczema – an itchy, red rash that can show up anywhere on the body — but treatments are available to soothe the itch, cool inflammation and prevent it from coming back. We swear!

If you are itching for eczema relief, here’s what you need to know about today’s treatments from the pro to the faux.

SHOULD YOU BE USING MICELLAR WATER?

Posted by 07.20.16

If you’ve noticed this strange sounding miracle ingredient popping up in many beauty products of late, there’s a good reason for it. Micellar water is an ideal way for those with normal to dry and/or sensitive skin to gently and effectively remove makeup, cleanse, refresh, protect and moisturize, all without stripping skin or leaving any oily residue behind.

These molecules are specifically attracted to dirt and oil, so they draw out impurities without stripping the skin of its own protective oils so it easily maintains its lipid barrier. You’ll love that there’s no harsh rubbing, scrubbing

What do you think of when you hear the words Aloe Vera? I’m instantly transported back to my teen years when I’d visit my grandparents in Bal Harbour, Florida. My sister, brother and I spent almost every school holiday and summer break hanging out with all the other kids who were visiting their grandparents as well. We’d swim in the ocean and bake ourselves by the pool, obviously a very different time — we weren’t schooled to protect our skin as much as we now know we should. If we got sunburned — and we always did — we’d break open an aloe vera leaf and apply the cool, green gel that oozed out of it directly on the burn. Nothing felt better than that!

Aloe Vera has been used medicinal
