Does caring for your Eczema prone skin frustrate you? Do you feel like you've tried everything that you can to make your Eczema go away?
With up to 15 Million people in the UK suffering from Eczema you’re not alone.
In this article we’re going to share our top 5 tips for caring for your sensitive skin, with the products we most recommend to care for it.
1. Avoid Common Eczema Triggers
Eczema can be triggered by multiple factors, avoiding these will help keep the skin calm.
The most common triggers which should be avoided are:
- Avoid scratching your skin as this can aggravate and damage the skin barrier making it more likely to get infected.
- Stress as the stress hormones released can play havoc with our bodies which can trigger an eczema flare up.
- Clothes made of rough or scratchy material can irritate eczema causing further damage to the skin.
- Pollen can cause eczema to flare up.
- High temperatures can make our blood vessels in the skin to dilate and can attract inflammatory cells to the skin.
- Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight as eczema can thrive when exposed to it.
2. How to Care For Excema
Eczema prone skin is very sensitive so it should be strengthened any way possible. To help your skin stay at it’s best health try introducing the following.
- If you have a breakout use a wet wrap to help keep the skin moisturised.
- Use a detergent/fabric softener that won’t irritate your skin. Two products to consider are ‘Seventh Generation Natural Laundry Detergent’ and ‘Purex Natural Elements Laundry’.
- Use a mild soap and non-soap cleanser. Soaps with alcohol and strong fragrances can remove the natural oils from our skin making it increasingly dry.
3. Find The Cause to Your Eczema
There are a number of things that can cause eczema so each individual needs to find what the underlying cause is for them. Bellow are common causes to eczema which might help you identify what may be causing it for you.
- Eczema can be triggered by an allergic response to food. If we eat a food that the body can’t tolerate the allergenic substances can work their way to the skin where they can cause a reaction.

Hormones are chemicals produced by the body and when there is an imbalance it can affect our skin. 30% of women find their eczema flares up in the days before their period.
Chronic stress can cause eczema as the stress hormones released can play havoc with our bodies. Take the time to monitor your stress levels. If you feel stress levels are too high start doing a daily meditation which will help you reduce them.
4. Skincare For Eczema
When choosing your skincare products look for ones that are alkaline based. Creating an alkaline environment will help improve the health of the cells allowing them to carry out their required functions. All Sönd products are formulated to help the skin maintain an alkaline environment, find out more here.
Silica is also a beneficial ingredient for eczema. Silica strengthens the connective tissue improving the skins barrier reducing the chances of infection from external elements.
Remember that the best cream for eczema will be able to lock in moisture effectively. Read more about creating a good skincare routine here. More information on products suitable for eczema can be seen here.
