5 Common Eczema Triggers and How to Avoid Them

5 Common Eczema Triggers and How to Avoid Them

Eczema is tough. It can really mess with your comfort and leave you feeling frustrated. Understanding what sets it off is key to keeping it under control and finding some relief.

Here’s a closer look at the things that can trigger eczema, and how my journey led me to create NAPRIM Naturals.

5 Common Triggers of Eczema

Environmental Factors: Weather changes, especially when it’s cold and dry, can dry out your skin and make eczema flare up. Plus, pollutants and allergens in the air don’t help either.

Irritants: Everyday stuff like soaps, detergents, and certain fabrics can really irritate sensitive skin. They strip away your skin’s natural oils, leaving it dry and itchy.

Stress: Stress is a biggie. It messes with your body and can make your skin go haywire, releasing hormones that amp up inflammation.

Allergens: Things like pollen, pet dander, and dust mites can set off eczema, as can food allergies—dairy, nuts, and wheat are common culprits.

Hormonal Changes: Ladies, hormonal shifts, like during pregnancy, periods, or menopause, can mess with your skin and trigger eczema flare-ups.

My Personal Journey with Eczema

Throughout my career as a cosmetologist, my focus has always been on making each client’s experience special. Over the years, I've had many conversations with clients about the importance of safe and sustainable hair care products. These conversations inspired me to create NAPRIM Naturals.

In 2018, I faced a personal challenge that drove me to innovate: my young daughter struggled with eczema and dermatitis. Despite trying various treatments, her sensitive skin remained irritated and uncomfortable. Seeing her distress motivated me to find a solution that could both soothe and nourish her skin.

After extensive research and experimentation, I developed a plant-based Nourishing Powder. This product was crafted to offer immediate relief and long-term benefits, calming her skin while supporting its natural healing process. This experience was transformative, not just for my daughter, but also for shaping the core values of NAPRIM Naturals.


How to Manage Your Eczema Flare-Ups

Managing eczema flare-ups is all about understanding what sets it off and taking steps to keep it in check. Here are some tips that could really make a difference:

Keep Your Skin Hydrated: Moisturizing regularly is key. Find a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer and use it several times a day, especially right after you bathe. This helps lock in moisture and keeps your skin from drying out.

Track Your Triggers: Keeping a diary can help you pinpoint what makes your eczema act up. Look out for things like certain soaps, fabrics, or even stress levels. Avoiding these triggers whenever possible can help prevent flare-ups.

Choose Gentle Products: Opt for skincare products that are gentle, unscented, and hypoallergenic. Our NAPRIM Naturals Nourishing Powder, for example, is made specifically for sensitive skin—it’s talc-free and doesn’t have harsh chemicals, so it’s soothing and safe to use.

De-Stress: Stress can really mess with your skin. Try to find ways to unwind, whether it’s through yoga, meditation, or talking things out with a therapist. Managing stress can go a long way in managing your eczema.

Pick the Right Clothes: Comfort matters. Stick to soft, breathable fabrics like cotton and steer clear of rough, scratchy materials that can irritate your skin.

Taking these steps can help you take charge of your eczema and keep your skin feeling its best. It’s all about finding what works for you and making choices that support your skin’s health.
