How To Use Eczema Gloves

So you want to know how to use eczema gloves? I gotchu!

First and foremost, remember when washing and cleaning these gloves, use a plant based, hypoallergenic and fragrance free detergent.

The last thing we want is to wash the gloves loaded with chemicals which then will aggravate the skin.

This part is the easiest.

After you wash your hands, apply your favourite cream, lotion or balm.

I’ve got 7 great options here.

Once the product is on, all you have to do is put the gloves on!

Voila!

Whether you want to do some work, hang around in the house or fall asleep, these gloves help protect your skin, hands and ultimately help you heal the skin.

The glove works by retaining the moisture of the product so your skin stays hydrated longer.

Sleeping with Eczema Gloves

The best part is, you can even sleep with these gloves.

It’s a good idea to sleep with them because it will make it harder for you to scratch.

We all know, half the time, we aren’t even aware that we are scratching in the middle of the night.

So these gloves can decrease the impact of our hard scratching.

This will prevent less flare ups, worsening the rashes and even skin infections.

But, the gloves gotta stay on during the night.

I remember the nights when I would take the gloves off the middle of the night and scratch away 😓…oops.

Sick of the Glove?

So the glove is not working as expected?

Are you taking it off in the middle of the night like I am 🤦‍♀️?

It’s okay, you tried it out and it didn’t work.

Or it’s working (great!) but you are still stuck on your healing journey.

Well, this is when you need to start looking beyond the skin.

We need to help the body heal from the inside out.

Most often, eczema manifests from within.

It could be a combination of what you put in your body and what your stress about.

Once you rule out environmental factors such as dusts, fragrances, toxic skincare products, you need to address nutrition.

This may feel overwhelming to do.

You may not know where to start.

This is exactly why I created the XZMA Healing Program.

Let me coach you every step of the way while you heal your skin and regain your confidence.
