You may be part of the 17% of Canadians living with atopic dermatitis, the most common form of eczema. In fact, we all know someone, somewhere, who suffers from it. The symptoms are unmistakable. Severe itching is extremely common among people with this dermatitis. Add to this dry, irritated skin, inflammation, and redness. In extreme cases, there will even be crusting, “flaking” of the skin, and even vesicles which are similar to small blisters. Eczema doesn’t give sufferers much of a break. Fortunately, it is possible to relieve these symptoms with natural products, including hemp oil.
Where exactly does Eczema come from?
Long surrounded by myths about its true causes, it is important to note that eczema is not contagious and is not the result of poor hygiene. Although genetics are involved, the specific cause of eczema remains a mystery. Unfortunately, the fact that it is so common does not make it a trivial skin condition, and those afflicted live with significant discomfort and physical pain on a daily basis. To make matters worse, there is no cure for this chronic skin condition. On the other hand, there are a multitude of remedies, including hemp oil-based body care products, to relieve the symptoms and thus improve the quality of life for sufferers.

Relieving eczema deeply with hemp oil
It is important to consult your dermatologist for proper support in treating eczema, especially when it comes to prescription corticosteroid-based ointments. However, you should know that there are also many over-the-counter creams available. Your doctor will be able to advise you on this subject. If you are looking for natural solutions based on essential or vegetable oils, there are several options available to you. At the top of the list, hemp oil to relieve eczema is the champion in all categories.
Relieving eczema : what is the secret of hemp oil ?
If you or your loved ones suffer from eczema, it is important to understand that your skin, despite its best efforts, is not doing its usual job. In fact, it has difficulty retaining moisture. This begins a cycle that is difficult to break: lack of moisture > dry skin > itching > scratching for temporary relief > inflammation, complications, and infection.
There is no point in feeling guilty, even though you know that scratching is probably the worst thing to do. Humans have reflexes that are sometimes difficult to control when seeking relief! The important thing is to break the cycle. With its high content of essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, its richness in Vitamin E, and its anti-inflammatory effects, hemp oil is so complete that it is able to carry out the function which your skin can no longer perform. It fights dryness, moisturizes the skin, reduces inflammation, helps prevent irritation, and eliminates itching from your daily routine! As a bonus, it nourishes, protects, and helps regenerate tissues. These are essential virtues in severe cases of eczema. In short, hemp oil has all the potential to become your skin’s new best friend forever!
Relieving eczema with a routine based on hemp oil
Your daily mantra if you suffer from atopic dermatitis (eczema) should be:
“Gently cleanse, deeply moisturize, gently cleanse, deeply moisturize, gently cleanse…”
In order to make this ritual a reality, the idea is to favour the use of a gentle soap, like CHANV’s Body and Face Soap (made in Quebec with hemp oil of course). This natural product can be used in the bath or shower, ideally with warm water, never hot. It’s perfect for gentle cleansing!
Once this step is complete, we suggest you use hemp ointment for deep moisturizing. Its formula allows the essential oils to penetrate the epidermis quickly. These ingredients relieve inflammation and support tissue regeneration.
To complete this treatment, the Intensive Care Oil is excellent if the eczema affects a large portion of your epidermis. A few drops will suffice to cover your body. In addition to soothing the itch caused by dermatitis, this oil will give your skin a silky, matte finish and a bewitching smell.
That’s it! In three small jars, you have an easy routine to combat and control eczema symptoms with the healing properties of hemp oil. When these natural products are applied daily after showering on the affected areas, they effectively relieve irritation and itching.
In addition, these same Quebec products can alleviate other conditions such as psoriasis. It’s hard to imagine a more versatile skin care routine!
