Eczema is a painful, rash that can appear anywhere on the body. It can form on the face as well. It is a condition that causes red patches that are formed on the dry skin. In more advanced cases blisters can develop and the recipient wants to scratch it like crazy. If the scratching continues unchecked the condition can cause bleeding. It may leave scars if the bleeding continues and the breaks in the skin become deeper. It is said to be a condition that runs in family lines and at this point, the experts have no knowledge of how it could start externally.
Today’s health advertisements would like the general public to believe that the only way to truly thoroughly clean our faces is by using harsh soaps that really dry out the skin and deplete it of all of its natural oils. The face has a natural film of oil on it to act as a barrier to protect the skin from the harsh elements of the environment.
In the case of dry skin, the skin will get drier without the oil and worse skin health issues will ensue. For oily skin, once the oils are depleted the skin will just produce more oil to make up for the oil lost. This will result in worse acne problems for those who have oily skin.
The latest trend is to use the opposite approach of cleansing with soap-based products and that is to use oils for a deep cleaning.The method is based on the principle that oil attracts oil. So the oils used in the deep cleaning method will draw not only excess oil, but dirt, grime, and makeup that may be clogging the pores. This eliminates a lot of foreign substances including excess oil from the pores.
Essential oils are liquids packed full of natural compounds and they’re extracted from plants by a process of steam distillation, or in the case of fruit oils, cold pressing. Essential oils are not ‘greasy’ like other oils, like vegetable oils, they absorb easily into the skin. The oils can be extracted from different parts of the plant, including the roots, stems, bark, seeds, leaves, and flowers. Plants produce oils for different reasons; they protect the plant from disease and predators, aid pollination, and can even stop competing plants from growing too close to them. But the oils don’t just benefit plants, we can also benefit from their healing and health-giving properties. Oils have been used for thousands of years by different cultures, and it turns out, they knew a thing or two.
