Using silica skin care products for eczema prone skin

Eczema can cause a lot of problems for sufferers as it can be very uncomfortable. This complex condition is becoming more prevalent, with cases having risen quite dramatically over the last decade. Approximately 11.5% of the population will suffer from eczema at some point in their lives. So what is eczema, and what are the best ways of caring for it?

Eczema is an itchy, inflamed rash that can occur on the face or body. It tends to occur in those with dry, sensitive skin. In some cases it can be hereditary, but is more often caused by external factors.

These include:

  • Allergies such as hay fever or pet allergies
  • Hot or cold weather
  • Soaps, detergents and cleaning products
  • Food allergies
  • Hormones
  • Stress

There is no known cure for eczema, but it can be managed with the right skin care. It is vital to take good care of your skin, even at times when your symptoms are mild or absent.

 

Ways of caring for eczema

Ways of caring for eczema include making sure that the water you wash with is not too hot, and moisturising within three minutes of washing to lock moisture into the skin. It is advisable to moisturise several times a day. Skin care products should be gentle and natural to reduce the risk of allergic reaction.

 

Using Silica

Silica is a mineral naturally present in our bodies when we are born but it depletes as we age. It is vital to healthy skin, it is known to be required for the production of collagen, the tissue that keeps your skin healthier and younger looking. As silica levels deplete from the teenage years onwards, it is important to replenish your silica levels from other sources.
