How I Clear Up My Eczema | Glowy, Healthy Skin Edition


I hosted a live video chat on my Instagram channel earlier this week sharing how eczema has affected not only me but my children for years. Eczema has been a skin problem that has plagued me and my children and I have been on a diligent search to find a solution that would clear up the irritating breakouts.

I'm not saying I've found a cure, but I've definitely found that the following solutions have reduced our eczema flare ups dramatically.

Use an apple cider vinegar rinse as needed.

I've found that by using an apple cider vinegar rinse on my hair and skin, most of my eczema has dried up as a result. 

I typically mix one part ACV to one part water in a bottle. My eczema is concentrated to my scalp, so after co-washing, I'll pour some over my scalp and rinse with cool water. To treat my scalp in between washes, I use a spray bottle to spritz affected areas. I have not had to do this in almost a year. Before implementing the strategies I'm sharing today I had to apply the ACV rinse almost weekly.

I just love those cute vanity trays I see in the home decor store that are labeled with words like "ring" or "lotion". The ones I see are usually white with black words and didn't fit the style I wanted for my guest bath so I decided to make my own.

4 Ways to Be Your Best from the Inside Out

People are often surprised by my age and think I'm younger than I am. I don't mind it now, but when I was in my twenties I hated looking young. I think the assumption is derived by observing my height (I'm 5,1) my build (I weigh 120 pounds), my hair, skin, and nails. 
4 Ways to Be Your Best from the Inside Out

In my early twenties, self-care became very important to me. Taking time to do things that made me happy and nurtured me from the inside out was a normal part of my routine. This got a little harder when I became a wife and mom. In all honesty, it fell by the wayside for some years. When our kids were little, self-care was put on the back burner. As my kids got older, I didn't naturally resume self-care habits. It wasn't until one day when my husband forced me to stop putting everyone first all of the time and to take time for myself. He noticed I was often unhappy and tired. I didn't realize, the kids had gotten older and it was okay to not give them every bit of my time and energy.

When my youngest son was eight years old, I put me back on the priority list. I set a goal to cultivate a habit of pampering myself with quality products, food, and healthy habits again. Five years later, I am glad I did. I just turned 40 years old and I feel amazing. Here are some of the main habits that contribute to my youthfulness and overall inner peace.
