I never had much faith in the lotions I used for my eczema. They all felt and smelled like the same thing, only with a different name. and all of them, without exception, only worked for a short period of time. None of them gave me the long term results they promised. My eczema would be good for a couple of weeks, then it would get used to the medicine, and the cream would stop working from that time onward.
My travels took me to wonderful places and in most of them, I looked for natural ways to cope with eczema. I tried geothermal therapy in Iceland, Hammans in Turkey, and Onsens in Japan and, still, they only worked for a couple of weeks. They did help me to feel incredibly relaxed though.
Surprisingly, it was home that I found the natural eczema treatment that would change my life forever, and I found it by chance. I heard my mom talking about this effective natural skin treatment her friend was trying, but I didn’t pay much attention. I do remember, vaguely, telling her that yes, she could bring me some to try but that was it. She got the FaceDoctor’s sea buckthorn oil soap, but I confess I left it on the bathroom shelf for almost a month until I finished my usual lotion.
Faced with no other options in the house, I started to use the soap. Although I didn’t have much hope that it would actually work. It was one of those moments of using it and leave it, and I didn’t give it much thought until two weeks later when, for the first time, I began to see some real changes. All this from something as simple as a bar of soap? I was beyond ecstatic!
I called my mom immediately to thank her and I haven’t used any other product since then.
