Steps and prevent Eczema
A crucial step towards treating eczema is strengthening the skin barrier. This will in return allow skin to strengthen to the point of storing moisture inside. For up to three or four months, constant use of moisturizers consisting of essential minerals like calcium ions, will help improve the skin barrier and help skin to restore back to optimum health. Using natural soap and applying a moisturizer will go a long way in maintaining clean and healthy skin. Another key method in maintaining healthier skin is to wear clothes made of cotton that are rinsed thoroughly as to avoid any remaining laundry detergent that may cause the irritation of the skin.
