I’m not sure if this is an old idea, but I was trying to make a DIY body scrub using olive oil and sugar and ended up finding the perfect solution to shaving my legs that has eczema. Although an accidental discovery, this has turned out to be something I will be using from now on when shaving as it does not dry out my skin and even keeps my legs well moisturized.
I had eczema since I was young, but I didn’t know what it was and always thought it was normal to experience extreme itch in the same areas, especially after taking showers at night. I really should have known earlier as this condition seems to run in my family. But it was only after I was in my teens and read about skin conditions that I realized mine was eczema. And it is a little late that I only started narrowing down what triggers or worsens my eczema flare ups recently. In fact, I made some discoveries that really disappointed me because some of my favourite foods are actually not good for eczema.
My new eye makeup remover is in the form of a balm and more specifically, it’s the Alexander Essentials Organic Yarrow Beauty Balm. Interesting eh? This is the first time I’m using a balm on my face and this is also the first time I’ve come across organic yarrow (Achillea Millefolium). Apparently, it’s a herb renowned for its nourishing and healing properties and is said to create a miraculous synergy with endless therapeutic properties when combined with tea tree oil.
For the past three to four years, I’ve been eating mostly brown rice especially during dinnertime. Because of the increased fiber content that encourages my digestive system to function better, I find that it helped contribute to clearer skin especially during the period when I had a bad acne flare-up. And despite the somewhat bland taste, I continued eating brown rice because it contains amino acids which are very useful in helping rebuild skin tissues.
