There are several ways to wet wrap. 1) Layered Pajamas Method This is a great method if eczema covers large areas of the body and/or preventing little ones from removing treatment altogether. Preferably after bath time, layer the lotions, creams, balms and/or salves onto your little one’s damp skin. Soak a set of lightweight long sleeved PJ’s in warm water and put them on your little one.

Over the years I’ve had my share of battling eczema in babies and toddlers. Each time, I used my top 4 things to get us through it: Detox Baths, Creams, Elimination Diets & Probiotics. Of course, I have more in my arsenal including ScratchMeNots and healing foods, yet these are my food sensitivity cornerstones. For my youngest daughter, she had some extra stubborn, calloused skin on her joints that those top four definitely helped out, but then there were the terrible adult poops & belly aches (TMI…sorry, not sorry) Her stomach hurt almost every day. At first it was easy, give her probiotics and it would sort itself out. Her skin would clear up, her stomach would hurt less. Then we’d run out or forget over a few days and all the symptoms would get worse. Especially her belly aches. After seeing this pattern over months, I made a hard decision. Pull the probiotics all together. I needed to figure out what was going on. We already eliminated our usual family no-no’s: nuts, dairy, certain citrus & seeds. But there was one I was hesitant to remove. Gluten. We’re talking tortillas, muffins, toast, cereal, cookies, cakes, pies, TORTILLAS and the list goes on and on. I know there are gluten free options, but have you taste them? From my vague memory of gluten free of years ago, the thoughts of rubbery sawdust bread, lots of salads and kids throwing food across the room quickly flooded my brain. But her stomach hurt almost every day and when I see my little one in pain, I have to suck it up and figure it [...]

One of our ScratchMeNot families has graciously shared a new treatment they are seeking to use for their son, Low Dose Allergy The Davis’ have a son with moderate-severe case of eczema & allergies. They are looking to begin treatment after raising funds through a Go Fund Me campaign (www.gofundme.com/Linkseczema). They are hoping that this will help their son Link win his battle with eczema for good. Link’s mom, Amber, tells about how eczema has affected his life and how this treatment will help. Our son, Link, has had eczema since he was born. It did not affect his behavior very much. He might have scratched a little bit during diaper changes or when he had a free hand, but it was always minor. An easily controlled issue with toys attention and tummy time. Late one night, he started crying and like most nights we went in to help sooth him back to sleep. This time was different however, when we picked him up from his crib and brought him up there was a thin coating of blood on my husband’s hands. Concerned for him, we immediately took him into the bathroom to see what had happened. He had scratched his chest and face to the point of making himself bleed. This was the start of our journey. After trying a few home ideas to keep the scratching to a minimum, we tried keeping him covered with socks and even with gauze. For a couple months these ideas helped reduce the amount of damage he could [...]

So, after using the Skin Recovery system for a little while, I really like the results! I got the cleanser, toner, and moisturizer to begin with, and I got a sample of the serum. The website says that it's a 5-step system with cleanser, toner, exfoliator, serum, moisturizer (one for morning and one for evening. The only difference is that the morning moisturizer has SPF30). I didn't have enough money for the whole thing, and the sample of the collection was out of stock. I decided to just start with the basics.
See my Haul Post for pictures/more information!
The cleanser I really liked. It didn't burn at all, and only slightly stung the particularly ripped-up parts of my face. The stinging didn't last more than a few seconds, and the thick, milky texture made me feel like I was moisturizing while cleansing! It didn't feel stripping at all. It took my BB Cream right off, but I had a little harder time with my mascara. I'd definitely recommend using a gentle makeup remover (Thank you, Albolene!) beforehand for more stubborn eye makeup.
The toner was very different than toners I've used in the past. It was exactly the consistency and color of milk -- it wasn't a clear astringent. I could actually feel the moisturizing in this product, as well. So many toners are just glorified alcohol or witch hazel. They're super irritating and drying! This was the first toner that I can actually recommend for people with fragile, flaky, super dry skin like mine. It was hydrating and still got the remnants of dirt and other nasties off my face. Again, it only stung the really open parts of my skin, and even that faded momentarily.
I have mixed feelings about the moisturizer. It feels so thick and rich when it goes on, but I feel tight again after only a few minutes. You only get 2 oz for $24.00, so I don't really want to lather it on. I've been using an oil and my Lierac Hydrachrono to supplement the moisturization. I only bought the PM-suggested moisturizer, because as I said, I'm low on cash at the moment, and I'm only outside long enough to get in and out of my car. I'm thinking about getting the AM moisturizer as well, though, because I'm very sensitive to the sun. I will burn in 15 min or less, especially with all the emollients and petrolatum that I put on my face.
I'm not going to lie, I'm awful about washing my face in the morning. I've actually timed my alarm so that I get every second of snooze time possible before I roll out of bed, throw on clothes, put my hair up, and go to work. When you work at 6am and you're an incurable night owl, every moment counts! I usually end up putting a little lotion on before I head out, and then a heavier moisturizer and mascara at red lights on my way in to work. That said, I feel so moisturized and dewy when I use these before I sleep that I'm actually in pretty good shape in the morning when I'm rushing out the door.
I like to put some Albolene over the moisturizer to seal it in, and some Vaseline over my eyelids and on my upper lip (which is always irritated, dry, and super flaky due to forever blowing my nose in the cold weather) about an hour before bed. That gives it enough time to soak in, and I can reapply lotion or cream as needed before I sleep.
I also got samples of the Antioxidant Serum with Retinol and the Clinical: Advanced Redness Relief. I'm always so red at work, sometimes people ask me if I've gotten a sunburn or spent too much time under a sun lamp. It's so embarrassing! I suspect it's because I keep an occlusive (Albolene or Aquaphor) on my skin to keep it from flaking, and when I work, I work hard. I work hard enough that I'm running around constantly for 7-8 hours at a time, and I overheat. I don't think that the occlusive lets me sweat properly, so I end up just overheating and turning cherry red. I'm working on finding a moisturizer (or combination thereof) that lets my skin breathe, but no luck yet.
Anyway, the Redness Relief stung. It didn't fade quickly like the other products, either. It's supposed to be made of anti-irritants, but you don't want your products to sting! It means that they're irritating your skin, not that they're working. That said, after I used it, I used the moisturizer, and the stinging went right down. It did work as promised -- I looked much less red and I didn't turn into a tomato like I normally do after skincare (even touching my face with my fingers turn me red!). It's on my list of things to buy the full size of, but I'm not in a huge hurry. I have such a reputation for turning red at work that it's not my highest priority... how sad is that?
The Antioxidant serum was great. It felt like a super thick oil that I put on my skin. I got maybe three or four uses out of the packet, which was awesome for a free sample! It definitely gave my skin the extra moisture it needed, and made the moisturizer much more effective. I can see why it's supposed to be sold as a set. I ended up buying the serum because it was so moisturizing.

Pugs are a friendly and goofy dog breed that love attention almost as much as people love their folded-up faces. Those folds need special care, though, to keep your pug happy and healthy. Create a consistent routine of meals, play time, and quiet time for your pug, and make sure you provide them with regular fold cleanings, ear cleanings, nail trims, and baths. It can take a little extra work, but with some attention you can care for all of your pug’s unique needs.
