Helllooooo friends, back atcha with another blog post!

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know that I’ve struggled with eczema my entire life. I even got pretty badly bullied throughout school because of it.

For the past few weeks, I’ve been having a pretty bad flare up that led to me hiding behind my clothes and making sure that my outfit for the day reflected what part of my body I felt I had to cover up. But while I was doing that, I realized I didn’t want to live that way and I didn’t want to think that other young girls were thinking the same way.

So I ended up posted a couple of IGTV’s opening up about my skin insecurities aka my eczema struggles. A lot of you DM’d me sharing your experiences and struggles as well.

I wanted to make a blog post so you’d have something to come and revisit if you wanted a reminder that you’re not alone or if you simply wanted to know the products I use to help with my eczema. Let’s get right into it!

♡ Cera Ve Moisturizing Cream

I loOove this hydrating cream for all over my body. It’s thick enough to be deeply hydrating but not overly sticky or greasy feeling. Pro tip: when I use this cream, I put on a long sleeve shirt and sweats to ensure that the cream stays on my skin and not my bed sheets or sofa.

If you sign up for emails on Cera Ve’s website, you can get a coupon to save money when you purchase any Cera Ve product in almost any store! Save that $$ girl.

♡ Clobetasol Propionate Foam {prescription}

Okay, so this one is a prescription steroid foam. But I wanted to include it in here because this has been one of the biggest players in my routine to help combat and keep my eczema at bay. This foam works to clear a flare up in a day or two. But since this product, is a steroid, you shouldn’t use it for more than two weeks at a time. So this doesn’t exactly help me to prevent the flare up, just calm it down once it’s there.

♡ Mometasone Furoate Cream {prescription}

This cream is also a steroid and a newer prescription to me. But this cream is safe to use on your face, but also only for two weeks at a time. This cream helped to clear this weird red, flakey spot that stayed on my chin for months. The redness is still kind of there but it’s definitely healing and getting better because of this cream.

♡ Belif the true cream – aqua bomb

This moisturizer is my current favorite facial moisturizer. The consistency, the way is sits under makeup, the deep hydration, all of it. I’ve repurchased this at least three or four times now. That’s how much I love it! It is a bit pricey so I try to get it when either Sephora or ULTA are running sales.

♡ Cera Ve Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I used this lotion as a facial moisturizer when I ran out of the aqua bomb and I really liked it as well. Although this lotion is lighter in consistency than the Cera Ve Moisturizing Cream, I find that it sits better on the face and is more hydrating.  You can also use this on your body, but I personally prefer the cream for my body. Between this lotion and the aqua bomb, I still prefer the aqua bomb. But this is a great option if you don’t want to spend the money on the aqua bomb!

♡ Cera Ve Baby Healing Ointment

So this is actually Noah’s lol but I use it as a lip balm! This is great over any cuts or burns that you want to protect, so it’s just a great product to have in your house, especially if you have children. I use a small amount on my lips morning and night and they stay very hydrated!

That’s it!

These are products that help to either prevent flare ups or calm them down when they’re active and these are all safe for eczema.

Let me know if you have questions on any of these products or on my skin/eczema journey, I’d be happy to answer them for you!

That’s all I’ve got for today.

Until next time… sending you love + light ♡
