Have Eczema & Acne? 6 Basic Skin Care Tips You Need to Know!

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and cysts. It is caused by many factors and attributed to overactive oil glands that combine with skin cells and clog pores. Bacteria on the skin of plugged pores multiply and result in skin lesions. Here are six basic acne care tips – especially if you have eczema, too!

  • Wash with mild and non-drying cleanser. Do not scrub skin.
  • Shampoo hair often.
  • Use “non-comedogenic" and “non-acnegenic” products.
  • Avoid astringents, toners and exfoliates that are drying.
  • Do not pop, squeeze or pick at acne.
  • If you have both acne and eczema, be careful not to apply steroid cream prescription for eczema on acne. Some acne creams are drying, so avoid applying acne cream on eczema areas.

Thanks for sharing the links :) It's bad if you have just eczema or acne alone, but having both can make it very tricky to manage your skin. Especially when the treatment cream for one skin condition can worsen the condition of the other!

Spotted skin, scars and acne marks make you feel embarrassed and hurt self-esteem as well. Many of us opt for cosmetics and other products to get rid of acne residues. There are many home remedies which have proven their effects on lightening these skin marks. Tomato and Lemon Juice: Take a “fresh tomato” and make its paste. Mix it well with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste on face for around 20 minutes and rinse it off gently with water after 20 minutes. Pulp of Aloe Vera: Let the pulp from Aloe Vera dry for 5 minutes in sun. Add 6-8 drops of lemon juice to it and apply on the affected area and face for 15 minutes. Onions: Cut the onion into small pieces. Grind those pieces and separate the juice from the residue. Apply the juice for few minutes on the affected skin and rinse after 10 minutes. Cucumber and Milk: Make a paste out of cucumber, milk and a bit of lime extract. It will serve as a face mask. Apply thoroughly and wash it with warm water after 10 minutes. You must consider a visit to dermatologist in severity of the condition. But, these home remedies are proven effective in getting rid of acne marks, black spots, pimples and dark spots.
