Can Eczema Be Cured?
Can Eczema Be Cured?
This is a very controversial topic as many people suffer from eczema and are constantly looking for products to help get rid of it. African Americans are most commonly affected by eczema in the U.S. I myself am very familiar with eczema as my son had it really bad at one point, but I was able to find what works to get rid of his eczema. It is one of the reasons we chose to start Butta Babee. We experimented with products and different ingredients and were able to come up with our own solution to cure it. Many will argue that this skin condition is a permanent life long battle and there is no way to fix it. This is far from the truth and I want to answer your question once and for all- can eczema be cured?
So, Can Eczema Really Be Cured
The short answer is yes. I want to first say that I am not just saying that it can be cured because it sounds good. I am speaking from a place of knowledge and experience. As I mentioned earlier in the post, my son has eczema and his condition has improved almost 100%. But his condition didn’t improve on its own, we had to make some significant changes. You see, eczema flare ups almost always stem from some type of disconnect in the body. Your diet plays a major role in how severe and how often your eczema flare ups will be.
Eliminate Foods That Don't Help Improve Your Skin Condition
Eczema is a result of your body trying to get rid of toxins. With that being said, one of the best tasting foods like dairy have to be removed from your diet, if you really want to see some real changes. Dairy is horrible for the body in general, and offers no nutritional value. Dairy causes the body to produce excess amounts of mucus, as it is a foreign object to the body. Don’t get it twisted, my family loves dairy and everything it has to offer to our taste buds. This includes ice cream, cheese, cream cheese, milk and everything in between. Unfortunately for my son, many of these items had to be removed from his diet inorder to improve is eczema condition.
No Chips/Junk Food
This is also another group of foods we had to let go. Chips contain lots of sodium and sweets contain lots of sugar. Both rob the body of water and eventually leading to dehydration. This could also be a major factor in why you are experiencing flare ups. You may be dehydrated from this inside and it is showing up as severe dry skin on the outside. You can treat yourself once in a while to these foods, but for the most part you will have to kiss them goodbye.
Add Water To Your Diet
This one here is very important and one of the most important changes that need to be made. It is recommended that you drink enough water based on your body weight. For example, if you weight 150 pounds you should be drinking 100 ounces of water per day. Find out what your water intake should be by multiplying your body weight by 67%. This is important because we have this misconception that everyone should be drinking the same amount of water. The amount of water a person drinks will solely depend on his or her lifestyle. Your flare ups could be excessive because you are not getting enough water for your body type. Water will help to flush out any impurities causing your eczema.
Use Nutrient Filled Products To Feed Your Skin
If you have been using medicated creams to heal your skin, let them go. Those creams have ingredients that are harmful and don’t actually fix the issue. They are only designed to cover it up. I personally never liked using these for my son. I never understood the ingredients are being used. Just as I tell our customers all the time, you should purchase products with ingredients that you are able to pronounce. If the words are too long and are tongue twisters, that is definitely a red flag. Natural products are much more ideal and healthy for your skin. Which leads me to my next point….
Incorporate Natural Skin Care Products
Natural products are the best option to cure eczema. Natural oils such as olive oil, vitamin e, coconut, jojoba, etc. offer major benefits to the skin. They are packed with vitamins that help to heal and repair. This is also the case for natural butters. Our shea butter blend is a formula that we created specifically for those suffering from eczema. It contains raw shea and cocoa butter and is designed to moisturize and repair the skin that has been damaged from flare ups. Our formula does not contain any medication and safe for children of all ages and adults. With consistent use, your skin will become soft and moisturized as both shea and cocoa butters are natural emollients. Keeping your skin moisturized is an important step at curing eczema.
With the tips that I have shared with you in this post, I am confident that you will be able to cure your eczema. These simple changes have worked for my son and now his eczema is pretty much non-existent. You may have to adjust your lifestyle and diet even more, if these steps don’t give you optimum relief. Either way, eczema can be cured and it is all about how consistent you are with your health and seriousness to find what is causing the issue. You will have to do the necessary work to see changes and real results. In no time, you’ll be free of this skin condition that has affected your quality of life for so many years.
