Soothe Away Your Eczema Today!
If you suffer from eczema, or are worried about allergy symptoms that resemble the symptoms of eczema, you're not alone. In fact, up to twenty percent of all Americans will develop eczema at some point in their lives, making it truly a public health crisis. (1)
And with spring here and summer just around the corner, it's easier than ever to lose your skin health to the endless pain and scratching that goes along with this skin disorder.
But don't worry. Research is revealing a SECRET WEAPON in your fight against eczema, and it's something you should probably be doing anyway ...
And right now it's easier than ever to remedy your eczema and soothe your skin. In this blog we talk about what eczema is, how to know if you have it, and how to MOISTURIZE it away today!
Eczema - also called atopic dermatitis - is something we've all heard of (and may even have), yet don't really think much about. Well, to put it plainly, eczema is a chronic skin disorder that leads to scaly and dry patches all over your body.
One of the worst parts about eczema is that it can be incredibly itchy and debilitating, and can even be a problem for babies, commonly appearing on their scalp and face. (2)
Eczema can be problematic for the young because it usually develops in the first year of their life. However, it can strike at any time, often flaring up in adults when they least suspect it. (3)
FUN FACT: Over two-thirds of people say eczema interferes with their daily life. Take your life back today and enjoy smoother skin with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ADULT ECZEMA PACKAGE! (4)
Now it's important to know that eczema is not contagious, but that doesn't help the millions of people who are unable to outgrow the condition and have to live with it for years.
This is because adults can commonly experience what are called oozing flare-ups of eczema, which affect your entire body, leading to bouts of uncontrollable itching and scratching, especially as the season changes. (5)
And though it's not totally known what causes eczema, the environment, your immune system, and your genes are considered to play a role in the formation of the debilitating skin condition. These environmental links may also be a reason why eczema and allergies are so closely linked. (6)

Before we can get into how to remedy your eczema, let's first make sure what you have is eczema, as eczema can be confused with many other skin problems.
Eczema is known to flare up most often in places where your skin creases and folds, including your wrists, hands, ankles, inner elbows, neck, face, around your eyes, and the backs of your knees. (7)
Other symptoms can vary based on the age of the sufferer, but it's important for everyone to be wary of the violent itching associated with eczema, which can make the leathery skin associated with it even worse. (8)

Aside from the seasonal allergies and cold weather (winter's itch) that can be blamed for eczema flareups, overheating can cause eczema to worsen. This is especially a problem in spring, when layers and exercise can cause your temperature to fluctuate fast.
It's also important to be aware of the infections that can strike in spring and summer, as infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi can trigger your eczema and make it worse. (10)
But if you really want to know if you're suffering from eczema, just look at your skin. A thickening of your skin - also called lichenification - and dry skin can be signs of eczema. And as always, see a health care professional if you have any questions about your health. (11)

MOISTURIZING FOR ECZEMA
Now that we know that you have eczema, let's talk about the little-known key to controlling it - MOISTURIZING.
Maintaining the moisture of your skin is essential in protecting the outer layer of your skin - also known as your stratum corneum or your skin barrier, which is easily damaged in eczema sufferers. (12)
And it's important to know that even though there are several types of eczema, MOISTURIZER is the one thing that will soothe all sufferers. (13)
FUN FACT: With eczema usually comes cracking of the skin, also called fissures. Exfoliate your skin and restore your natural radiance with the ALL-NATURAL BODY WASH found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ADULT ECZEMA PACKAGE! (14)
Let's get something out of the way right now: eczema cannot be cured. But that doesn't mean you have to deal with its pain for the rest of your life. In fact, MOISTURIZERS have an amazing ability to both treat and control your dermatitis.
Even breakthrough flares - as they're sometimes called - can be relieved with the right ANTI-INFLAMMATORY PRODUCTS targeting the body part in question. (15)
And if you're wondering if you might need something stronger, such as a steroid, to remedy your eczema, think again. Steroids can be far more dangerous to your skin than even your eczema, thinning out your skin and adding extra wrinkles you don't want. (16)
To wash your body without harsh soaps or drying ingredients, check out Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Body Wash, which uses therapeutic grade essential oils to soothe irritated skin and provide you a sensory experience every time you wash!

WHERE TO MOISTURIZE
Because eczema is really an umbrella term for a variety of eczemas you can have, different triggers might cause you to have eczema on your toes, while another trigger might cause your scalp to break out. But for instant relief anywhere, MOISTURIZING is the answer.
The best part about MOISTURIZING your eczema away is the fact that it's something you can do at home without needing a prescription. (17)
And even if you don't currently have an eczema flareup, it's important to keep a MOISTURIZER in your bag for those moments you need it. Remember - the two most important things you need to do when suffering from eczema are to prevent dryness and retain your moisture. (18)
FUN FACT: Hand eczema is common for those who wash their hands a lot throughout the day. Give your hands the relief they need and moisturize with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL ORGANIC HAND CREAM! (19)
To determine whether a MOISTURIZER will remedy your skin problems, it's important to know the distinction between dry skin and eczema.
Dry skin is a common problem for most people, and can be triggered by things like the cold, not lotioning, and the wind, with slight itching accompanying it. However, eczema will make your itching even worse, and can cause you to dig your nails deeper into your skin. (20)
A good rule of thumb is that if you have dry skin for reasons you can't pinpoint and your itchiness is out of control, it's probably eczema, not just dry skin. (21)

Over-the-counter products are loaded with artificial fragrances that can be dangerous to your skin. This is because fragrances are common allergens, and can trigger those with sensitive skin. (22)
Many over-the-counter shampoos, soaps, and cleansers also contain sulfates, which are known to cause itchiness, irritation, and dryness, making matters worse for those who suffer from eczema. (23)

Another problem with over-the-counter products is that they strip away your natural oils, which are responsible for keeping your skin moist. Knowing which ones will dry you out is essential in keeping your eczema under control.
Many over-the-counter products also contain dyes, which are known to be incredibly irritating for those suffering from eczema, especially if you have sensitive skin. (25)
Over-the-counter soaps can also alter your pH levels, which can make your eczema worse. For example, your skin should have a pH of 4-5, while over-the-counter soaps have an average pH of 9-10. (26)
