How to handle an eczema flare-up before it gets worse {my 4 step checklist}

by purelytwins

I am super grateful to be celebrating almost 3 years living eczema free. **Updated as I mentioned it was 4 years in the video but my truly healing journey in 2015. Thanks for understanding. I apologize.

I had someone ask me on Instagram how I handle eczema flare-ups and not let them get worse.

I do get eczema flare-ups every once and awhile, but each year they get less and less.

In today’s video, I will share my 4 step checklist to handling eczema flare-ups.

How to handle an eczema flare-up before it gets worse {my 4 step checklist}

For me the biggest things I notice is – I am highly stressed, not sleeping well and eating more sugar than normal.

I notice when I am not taking care of myself – fully – body and soul. I am not fully engaged in my self-care routine, which helps me feel less stressed, my skin shows it.

How To Handle An Eczema Flare-Up Before It Gets Worse {My 4 Step Checklist} I am celebrating 4 years being eczema free and sharing how I handle when I experience an eczema flare-up. Please share this with anyone you know suffering from eczema.

Here are my 4 steps for dealing with eczema flare-up before it gets worse –

1 – Notice my stress. What is going on? Why is it stressing me out? What can I do to switch it? Don’t hide from it but face it. Am I saying yes too much to others and not myself.

2 – Skincare routine. Have I been keeping up with my lotion routine?

You can see my past video on lotions I tried here for my skin.

3 – Diet. Did I overdo it somewhere? I don’t freak out, I just take notice and choose better. Have I been eating too much sugar? I go back to the basics – focus on getting my water in, eating a wholesome diet, and did I eat any of my personal trigger foods?

Check out my full eczema diet routine and thoughts here.

4 – Me time/emotions – Am I not playing enough and having fun?  Am I allowing my mind to let things out by journaling ? Am I addressing my emotions? Emotions are a big factor with eczema, what am I not facing.  Make sure to check out my video with Abby.

Hi, I am interested in trying your friend abbys skin balm but I wanted to know where I can purchase it? I have eczema and it also shows up on my face, would this balm be okay to use there too? Please let me know if there is a way to purchase this balm as I saw a YouTube video from you on how to manage flare ups. Thank you
