The 5 Products That Effectively Keep My Eczema at Bay

 

Growing up in California, my eczema was a source of occasional discomfort. But it was nothing — nothing — compared to how bad it got when I moved to the East Coast for college. My first major seasonal shift was excruciating: My eczema was so scratchy and miserable that even putting on clothes was painful. The products I’d depended on growing up were rendered useless, fueling a frantic search for relief. When I say I tried everything, I mean I tried everything — from bathing in literal oatmeal from my kitchen cabinet, to getting acrylic nails so that I couldn’t properly scratch myself, to buying dozens of creams and body washes and soaks recommended by fellow sufferers. And after months of trial and error, I finally discovered a few products that made a difference. So, below: my five eczema Holy Grails.

This particular shea butter body cream from Buttah is easily my favorite I’ve ever used. It’s more nourishing than any other body cream I’ve tried, and never leaves my skin feeling sticky or tacky.
