Whether it is you or your children, the battle with eczema can be very frustrating. I know this because I use to be a frustrated mom dealing with my infant son and his eczema issues. I felt like such a horrible mother because his skin was always red and inflamed. My poor baby was so uncomfortable and I couldn’t figure out what to do. 

I remember taking him to get pictures around 5 months and I didn’t want to do the diaper only photos because his skin was so discolored. His body was literally 2 different colors and I felt ashamed. I tried everything the doctors prescribed even covered him in Crisco. Yeah that didn’t work either, but I was desperate for a solution to his skin issue. I laugh at it now because the doctor told me to try it.

This is where me being stubborn came into play. I started doing my research on the condition to educate myself and this is how Happily Naturally Me was born. It started with me creating a product to combat his eczema and I had succeeded. No more steroids and crappy medicine from the doctor that didn’t work. This mom had figured out a natural solution that has worked perfectly. My son is now 8 and you would never even know he had eczema. So to the parents with children suffering here is how I made my son’s eczema nonexistent:

  1. Stay a way from things with synthetic fragrance. Laundry detergent, soaps, lotions etc. That includes you as well mom because your baby is always laying on you. Happily Naturally Me’s Whipped Shea Butter and Shea Butter Soap was created for this reason, but it isn’t the only benefit. Raw ingredients are used to make both so no watered down supermarket products.
  2. Make sure you are applying your moisturizer right after bathing. Happily Naturally Me’s Whipped Shea Butter acts as a sealant to keep the moisture in. Raw unrefined Shea Butter penetrates all 7 layers of your skin and that is why it is so AWESOME unlike other moisturizers.
  3. Be mindful of the things your baby is eating because sometimes that can also cause flare ups. Your gut health is connected to your skin health. If you breast feed be mindful of this. It might help to keep a diary of what you are consuming and document flare ups. 

So there you have it. Start implementing these things and see what happens. I am by no means a doctor so this is not medical advice. This is my story of how we resolved the eczema problem in our household.

5 Tips To Reduce Forehead Acne

Share Button

No matter where those annoying bumps are accumulating the bottom line is you want that acne gone. Here are 5 tips to help you with that annoying and embarrassing issue on your forehead. 

  1. Bad Hair and Makeup Products- I shall say no company names, but I used a foundation in college that gave me the worse acne in my life because it was laced with so many bad chemicals. This was actually the start of me paying more attention to the products I used on my face and this was in 2004. It was the craze back then and is still very popular but never again. You should also be mindful of the products you use in your hair as well. There are plenty of hair products these days with more natural ingredients.
  2. Your Food- Reduce the starchy and greasy foods and eat more fruits and veggies. Your digestive system plays a big part when it comes to the health of your skin.
  3. Reduce Stress- Ever notice when you are really stressed your acne is more profound? This is because more oil is produced and clogs the hair follicles even more. This is normally the case for someone that already suffers from acne. 
  4. Drink More Water- This should be a no brained since you need water to have healthy skin. Water helps to flush out internal toxins.
  5. Clean Face- Clean your face 2x daily to remove dirt and any other harsh things your face has picked up from the environment. Make sure you are using something mild. Again stay away from products that have harsh chemicals so my suggestion is to use either the Shea Butter or Olive Oil Soap by Happily Naturally Me. 

So there you have it!! 5 tips to clear up that forehead acne. Your internal health is just as important as your external health. Make sure you are preserving your natural beauty with natural products.
