Ever since I was a child I have struggled with severe skin conditions such as eczema all over my body, contact dermatitis, skin allergies to anything with fragrance and dry skin. I have tried every over the counter lotion, medical lotions prescribed by doctors and even very expensive high end skin care lines but still have never been able to heal my skin from all of its issues. I have never worn shorts and only wear ankle length pants or maxi skirts in the summer because of the impact of all the different skin issues I have had resulting in major scarring.
My obsession with skin care started when I was young. In fact I became an esthetician because I was trying to understand how the skin worked. I would use all the things the doctors told me but nothing ever seemed to work. So I would research different herbs and oils that were known to help skin issues such as mine. It took many years and lots of research but little by little I figured out what my skin needed.
The problem is that most skin care products are using synthetic versions of the healing benefits that natural plants already have. Once a company uses whatever they want of the product they will resale it to another company and the process continues. This is why the price point of certain skin care lines vary. The more research I did led me to discover the reason for the creation of synthetic ingredients. Companies cannot patent natural plants because they are naturally occurring and anyone can use them.
Now skin is a very tricky thing and no one ever has a cure all for everything, but I can proudly say that with much diligence and the use of this paraben free herbal lotion I am eczema free and have no other skin issues.
Skin allergies including eczema result usually because of an internal factor. Mine was largely caused by allergies to dairy and sugar. Once I got a handle on my diet and healing from the inside out I started working on healing my skin. I hope you give this lotion a try and let me know if it helped you at all.
