You are thinking of taking a bath but you are anxious about it. Your dry and irritated skin stings and burns under the water. You wonder if there are any bath oils for eczema out there. All you want is to enjoy a nice warm relaxing bath that leaves feeling refreshed and moisturized.
Well, look no further because I’ve got 3 bath oils for eczema, just for you!
1. Jojoba Oil
The first one on my list is my personal favorite…jojoba!
Other bath oils for eczema are loaded with unessential chemicals.
The last thing you want after a bath is a flare-up due to fragrances or chemicals.
This is why I recommended jojoba oil. The only ingredient is jojoba itself.
Along with that, jojoba has many benefits for the skin such as:
- Speeds up healing
- Decreases the formation of wounds
2. Radiant Bath + Body Oil by Province Apothecary
If you want to get fancy, this is the product for you!
But don’t worry because it’s made using natural ingredients. An interesting fact, the founder of Province Apothecary, Julie, had eczema herself. So it’s safe to say, Julie understands the struggles of eczema and has kept this in mind while formulating all the products.
So what are the key ingredients of this bath oil?
- Vitamin E
- Helps alleviate dry skin
- Softens the look of fine lines
- Safflower Oil
- High in linoleic acid
- Helps relieve eczema, psoriasis, acne
- Clary Sage Oil
- Helps relieve swelling, inflammation
- Pomegranate Seed Oil
- Reduces inflammation
- Helps regenerate skin cells
- Geranium Essential Oil
- Helps tighten and tone skin
With so many great benefits, this bath oil for eczema is one of my go-to. Oh yeah, it smells amazing!
3. Aveeno Skin Relief Shower & Bath Oil
Last but not least, we have the Aveeno bath oil.
This is where my bath journey actually started because it was recommended to me by my dermatologist when I was a kid.
It’s a great product to get you started on baths. Aveeno is a well-known brand that makes good quality products for sensitive skin.
This bath oil’s main ingredient is oatmeal. This oatmeal formula can help restore and maintain the skin’s moisture barrier that helps prevent and protect dry skin, according to Aveeno.com.
It’s also fragrance-free which is a plus.
Before You Bath
Before you start bathing, I wanted to give you some tips!
Remember to give your bathtub a nice deep clean before taking bath in it. You don’t want to be sitting in with dirt and grime.
Post bathing, you also want to clean it down again. Why? Because bath oils for eczema can make the bathtub slippery. You don’t want to slip and fall or have the next person unknowingly enter into a slippery tub.
I know showering or a bath is no fun with eczema. It stings, it burns, and it takes energy out of you.
But if you can, try to make it fun and your own personal time.
Take a book in there, play a game or play some relaxing music and close your eyes.
Over time, you’ll fall in love with this ritual just like I did.
But Wait There’s More
