Eczema is a common skin condition that can cause discomfort, embarrassment, and even affect a person’s quality of life. While there is no known cure for this condition, there are various treatments available, such as topical creams and medications, to alleviate symptoms and improve overall skin health. One effective approach is salt therapy, which is believed to have several benefits when it comes to skin condition like eczema.

Understanding eczema

Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. It disrupts the skin’s protective outer layer, known as the epidermal barrier, which regulates moisture retention and acts as a barrier against bacterial invasion. Atopy creates breaches in this layer, resulting in dry skin and increased vulnerability to inflammation and infection.

Eczema can be triggered by various factors including environmental elements, stress, and allergies. In those with atopic eczema, the skin lesions may localize in specific areas like ankles or creases of elbows and knees, while others may experience widespread inflammation throughout the entire body.

Eczema symptoms

  • dry skin
  • itching and swelling
  • red to brown-gray spots
  • inflammatory pimples and blisters
  • wetting
  • thickened, cracked and scaly skin
  • peeling surfaces and subsequently scabs

How salt therapy works for eczema

Salt therapy offers several benefits for individuals dealing with eczema.

Salt therapy has anti-inflammatory effects that help soothe skin irritation caused by dermatological conditions, reducing the sensation of itching and burning.

Salt therapy restores the function of the skin barrier, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin and protecting it from irritants. This reduces uncomfortable dryness, leaving the skin pleasantly hydrated.

Salt particles act as a gentle natural exfoliator. They actively contribute to the shedding of dead skin cells, reducing the formation of scales and rashes.

Salt therapy effectively flushes out accumulated toxins and mucus from the lungs, preventing the elimination of these substances through the skin. This promotes detoxification of the body and cleanses the skin from rashes, acne, and pigmentation spots while preventing potential deterioration.

Incorporating salt therapy into an eczema management routine can provide significant relief and contribute to overall skin health.

Recommended halotherapy treatment plan

To attain enduring benefits, we advise adhering to the following frequency and duration of salt therapy sessions.

5 – 8
20 – 32
as acute symptoms subside

Although even a less frequent sessions can provide relief, the crucial factor for achieving lasting results is maintaining consistency and regularity. This approach should continue until eczema symptoms begin to diminish. Once that occurs, you can gradually reduce the frequency of visits to our studio and incorporate salt therapy into your routine based on your individual preferences and availability. This will help bolster your immune system, enhance overall health, reduce stress, or serve as a relaxation method.

Why it’s worth trying salt therapy

While salt therapy is not a cure for eczema, it can be a helpful complementary therapy that can improve skin health and quality of life. It’s important to note that salt therapy should not be used as a replacement for medical treatment for this condition. If you suffer from eczema, you should continue to follow your doctor’s advice and use your prescribed medication and skincare products as directed.
