Just watched Dr Claudia Aguirre’s video ‘Eczema-Scratching the Surface‘, posted on The International Dermal Institute that trains over 75,000 professional skin therapists annually. The video covers what’s atopic dermatitis, its causes and treatment, including house dust mite and defective skin barrier (see the video link in the comments). Something new I’ve learnt from the video which has Dr Claudia’s permission to share:
Ingredients that Repair Skin’s Barrier
Oat extract, Evening primrose oil
Avocado, Sea Buckthorn, Borage Oil, Lactic acid
Ingredients that Reduce Inflammation
Chamomile, Ginger, Licorice, Lavendar
Red Clover, Red Raspberry, Coneflower
Also, I’ve learn that eczema skin tends to be more alkaline and has higher enzyme activity. And Vitamin D helps boost immunity.
The video is free for viewing, and you get the transcript after completing the survey.
