It can be very difficult to look after your skin once you have an occurrence of eczema, especially if it’s a particularly bad bout and it would seem like everything you do makes it worse. It is crucial, as an eczema sufferer, to prevent the skin from becoming weak and irritated in order to avoid the outbreak of Eczema.
One of the highest causes of eczema is alcohol, especially beer/lager and wines/champagne due to the high concentration of preservatives in their ingredients. Now, this does not mean that you have to forgo all alcohol and never drink again, but try to keep your drinking moderate. This is also good for heath in general.
Another factor in the incidence of eczema is processed foods which also contain preservatives as well as additives and all sorts of nasty chemicals which usually come under the heading of an E number. Make sure that your diet is predominantly made of whole and natural foods to avoid your skin from becoming irritated.
The final point in this article for helping you to avoid eczema is your sleeping patterns. Much research indicates that a lack of sleep can greatly affect your eczema in a negative way. Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. It is also worth bearing in mind not to get too much sleep. This can have an equally negative affect, so don’t be tempted to lie in too long.
Hopefully, you will be able to take these tips into consideration and implement them into your daily life to reduce the risk of a flare-up of eczema.
