Relax and take control of your eczema

There are so many factors in our environment that will trigger an eczema flare up that it is difficult to know where to start to avoid them.

Food, Dust, Climate

People look upon foods, dusts and climate changes as the major causes of eczema flare ups. But one major factor is often overlooked. A factor that is easier to identify and possible to control.


Our lives in general are far more stressful than in past generations. Stressful jobs, fast non-stop social lives, unstable world situations and deadlines to meet. All add stresses to our lives that will easily trigger an eczema flare up or make the overall condition difficult to control.

Take time to smell the roses

It is simple, we need to reduce the stress in our daily lives. Take time out of your hectic day to relax – take time to smell the roses as the saying goes.

By spending half an hour each day doing something purely for yourself that you enjoy doing you will significantly reduce the level of stress bottled up inside of you. This may be simply reading a magazine, walking on the beach or having a massage.

Reduce you stress levels and your eczema will be much easier to control.
