Don't put anything on your skin unless you know and understand what the ingredients are AND the ingredients are all as wholesome as possible. Chemicals and preservatives can cause flare-ups, but they can also irritate pre-existing flare-ups --- the same goes for eczema sufferers. So, what do we recommend?
1. Use our Baby Soap to wash your face - and your hair, if you can, to keep the run-off from chemical shampoos off of your face. Check out our Blue Shampoo listing or blog post for more information about washing your hair with natural bars instead of liquid detergent shampoos.
2. Only use natural oils to moisturize. StouderHouse Day Serum & Primer is a great blend of oils that not only moisturizes, but also acts as a primer (or, base) for our Mineral Foundation Powder. Don't be afraid of good quality powder...we have samples for you to try. Our Night Repair Serum recipe includes frankincense and other repairing essential oils that nourish inflamed skin.
3. Stay out of the sun - it causes flare-ups. When you are outside, wear a natural sunscreen that utilizes the power of zinc oxide, a natural mineral, to block the sun's rays, rather than sunscreens that use chemicals to block the sun. We offer Barrier Balm and Tinted Barrier Balm - both are loaded with zinc oxide and other nourishing ingredients.
4. Lavender essential oil can be beneficial in treating Rosacea. Try adding 5 drops to a full bottle of our Day Serum & Primer.
