Que tal peeps!

I know it's been a while since I've done a skincare card. I've been really super busy. However, on my personal account in the pass I know someone requested me to do a detailed card about Eczema. I'm having some down time and now I'm making this card.

FYI: This card is very informative

"Eczema is very common. And in many cases, it’s also manageable. In fact, over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema" (National Eczema Association, 2016).

My Story and Family History with Eczema

This skin condition runs in my family. I have and my little brother has it. I have it on my underarms and small spot on my face. My brother has it in his back. This condition can be super painful, embarrassing and frustrating. I used to scratch deep cuts into my underarms until I began naturally taking care of it. If you want you can always go to the dermatologist. I did when I was young and that's how I found out I had this skin condition. However, appointments can get expensive and I had no idea what were in those white cremes. My family memeber had a scary reaction to one of her cremes and that was enough for me to do research to find a natural and affordable way to treat eczema.

What is Eczema?

This video does a good job at defining the skin condition and breaking down the different types of Eczema. The basic definition is inflammation of skin.


Eczema is usually itchy. For many people, the itch is usually only mild, or moderate. But in some cases it can become much worse and you might develop extremely inflamed skin. Sometimes the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds, which can make your eczema worse. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.” What to look for: Dry, sensitive skin Red, inflamed skin Very bad itching Dark colored patches of skin Rough, leathery or scaly patches of skin Oozing or crusting Areas of swelling Source Not my own words this is directly from the source link above from Eczema National Association.

Products to Try

You want to use products that will moisturize the skin, condition the skin, protect the skin, and is for sensitive skin. Just like anything else you want to develop a skin routine to help take care of your skin condition. I have two videos that will help you.

Natural Ways to Treat Eczema

This video has some natural ways to treat Eczema. Some things that I already do 1. Check ingredients in your skincare products (face wash, shampoo, conditioners, etc). I try to stick to products that are all natural, mostly natural, and or specific to sensitive skin. 2. Natural Oils It is important to moisturize the skin. I use oils like pure rosehip seed, avocado, Shea Butter, cocoa butter. I try to use fatty oils. 3. Watch what you eat. Your eczema could be caused by foods you eat. There are also vitamins and foods you can eat to reduce eczema. 4. Watch what kind of detergent you use to wash your clothes. The ones that have too much perfume could cause irritation. 5. Find out what material in your clothing is irritating to your skin. 6. Some eczema is caused by stress. Find ways to reduce your stress.

Natural Ways to Treat Eczema

Natural DIY Cremes

I Make whipped shea butter for my family. This helps prevent breaks outs and helps heal our skin from bad eczema break outs. This is my recipe. However, you can make it however you want. I have some above recipes above. The awesome thing is that you can use this for anything (eczema breakouts, regular skin moisturizer, hair mask, to moisturize your scalp)! 1. Raw African Shea Butter (Yellow) 2. Coco Butter


Melt shea butter and coco butter in the top of a double boiler or you can melt in the microwave. Once butters are melted mix in any liquid oil and essential oils (essential oils are optional I would skip this if you have sensitive skin) to the melted butters. Place oil mixture in freezer or outside to chill. Important Part ⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇ Wait until oils start to partially solidify then whip until a butter-like consistency is achieved (some ppl use a mixer but I use a fork and it works just fine.) Place in clean, glass jar and enjoy! Source

Thank you so much for making this card because I have Eczema 😩 I always had it and struggle to stop scratching.. its like a bad habit..
I totally understand. De nada! I hope this information was useful to you.
I have eczema pretty much everywhere on my body((It's not as bad as it was but it still itches once in a while)). I usually use cocoa butter for it now but I still have to use what my doctor prescribed me. I also take 2-3 showers a day to keep it clean. I'm supposed to be brown skinned, but There's so much darkness that needs time to go away.I can't wait to try the things in this card~😄
Thank you so much for this! I'm going to have to try the homemade cremes. I get severe eczema on the back of my hands and honestly just about every where else a long with super sensitive skin and the dry weather we have here in Utah in the winter is a terrible for those with eczema.

@TracyLynnn yeah I hear you. I used to use that stuff when I was a teen.
I have a mild case on my legs and arms and sometimes my face
I have a moderate to heavy case....and most things do not help. I have a LOT of food allergies, drug allergies, and environmental allergies.
what are some things you have tried?
