First off, I want to thank Bulldancer for writing this and leading me to using the Aveeno Eczema lotion.
Second, I usually don't post things or like to share my 2 cents because different things work for different people. I like to educate myself (i.e. read a lot) , experiment, and see for myself what works for me.
Ive never had any kind of skin issues and around my 29th birthday I got a red spot on my chin. Low and behold after months of searching I self diagnosed myself with seb derm. I am now 30 and it took me a year of searching to find out what keeps my skin clear, itch, and 95% flake free. I think I can speak for almost everyone when I say Im going to live my life.. eat what I want...smoke if I want... do what I want. So needless to say I wasn't going to never eat gluten / Sugar
again. Forget that.
Heres what I do. I've been doing this for about a month now and yes, it did take about a week of this regiment for my face to clear up. Raw honey and the Aveeno Eczema lotion. Get a small cup, a little honey in (you'll figure out how much honey you need to apply. It doesn't have to be dripping off your face), dilute with purified bottled water (10% water to the amount of honey that you put in the cup... just eyeball it...no it doesn't have to be exact), mix with your finger for a bit then apply to your face. Do this twice a day for about 30 mins and rinse with cool tap water. The key is to apply the Aveeno lotion after you pat your face dry. Apply sparingly because it does go a long way. I end up applying more in my beard area just to make sure it gets to my skin.
Now I wash my face with honey once a day and keep lotion on my face. Usually on apply the lotion once a day as well.
Good Luck. I haven't found anyone use this combination to treat their SD. But as far as Im concerned this is the best / easiest regimen out there. Im eating cake right now. Cheers!
