Soothing Seborrheic Dermatitis: Effective Natural Solutions

Seborrheic dermatitis, characterized by redness, itching, and flakes, can be a source of discomfort and skin irritation. When the skin requires specific care, éméo stands out with its unparalleled expertise in relieving skin issues. Let's delve into solutions that effectively and naturally soothe the symptoms of this condition with éméo.

Seborrheic Dermatitis: An Uncomfortable Reality

Seborrheic dermatitis can create a cycle of itching, redness, and flaking, affecting well-being and self-confidence. Symptoms often emerge on the face and scalp, demanding expert approaches to alleviate these while tackling the underlying causes.

Understanding the Causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis

This condition often stems from an imbalance in sebum production, the skin's natural oil. Hormonal factors like adrenal androgens can exacerbate excessive sebum production, leading to oily skin and inflammation.

The Result: Red and scaly areas, linked with greasy flakes on the scalp. It manifests through localized redness on the sides of the nose, between the eyebrows, and along the hairline. It combines dry flakes on the face and greasy flakes on the scalp.

Seborrheic Dermatitis on the Face

This condition arises from facial seborrhea, influenced by adrenal androgens, on dry, sensitive, reddened skin that can itch and flake. It's occasionally mistaken for psoriasis and can manifest similarly.

Treating this condition aims to avoid skin irritations (as the skin is highly sensitive), reduce inflammation, and eliminate fungal infections (particularly Malassezia yeast) that are often present.

Seborrheic Dermatitis on the Scalp

Sometimes limited to the scalp without affecting the face, this situation is also caused by sebum and occasionally harsh hair care products. The skin peels, and yellowish crusts often form on the scalp.

I present you effective methods to naturally treat seborrheic dermatitis using plant oils.

Desired properties in plant oils include

• Protection

• Anti-inflammation

• Anti-fungal

• Occlusive action

• Healing

Some beneficial oils for soothing dermatitis are

• Tamanu (promotes circulation)

• Borage (anti-inflammatory)

• Black Cumin (anti-fungal)

• Baobab (nourishing)

• Avocado (anti-inflammatory)

• Rosehip (anti-dehydrating)

Of course, other oils can also improve this dermatological issue. Sometimes, several trials are necessary to find the ideal combination.

If you want to create your own formula for the face and scalp

  • Avocado: 3 ml
  • Borage: 11 ml
  • Black Cumin: 3.7 ml
  • Tamanu (Calophyllum): 12 ml
  • Vitamin E: 0.3 ml

A ready-made formula is the Bio Acnerium Serum

Caring for Seborrheic Dermatitis of the Face and Scalp with Bio Acnerium Serum

Our Acnerium Serum offers a holistic solution, combining organic plant oils with specific essential oils. This serum not only soothes visible symptoms but also targets the root causes of seborrheic dermatitis.

Organic plant oils contained in the Bio Acnerium Serum

  • Grapeseed Oil: Grapeseed oil is known for its regulatory properties that can benefit those with seborrheic dermatitis.
  • Sea Buckthorn Oil: Sea buckthorn oil is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants, making it a valuable choice for those struggling with seborrheic dermatitis. Thanks to its antioxidant properties, this oil can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which is particularly important for irritation-prone skin.
  • Jojoba Oil: Jojoba oil is known for its similarity to the skin's natural sebum. This characteristic makes it an excellent choice for skin prone to seborrheic dermatitis. By mimicking natural sebum, jojoba oil can help regulate the skin's sebum production.
  • Black Cumin (Nigella) Oil: Black cumin oil is known for its soothing properties on irritated and acne-prone skin, making it valuable for alleviating seborrheic dermatitis symptoms. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties can help calm irritations and reduce the appearance of redness. Additionally, its potential to promote skin repair can help mitigate scars.

Essential Oils:

  • Geranium Essential Oil: Its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties can help soothe irritated skin.
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil: Tea tree oil is a potent broad-spectrum antibacterial agent. It also possesses antiviral and antifungal properties. These features could help manage the overgrowth of fungi like Malassezia associated with seborrheic dermatitis.
  • Helichrysum Essential Oil: Helichrysum oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. In the context of seborrheic dermatitis, its anti-inflammatory effects may help reduce redness and irritation, while its support for skin repair can contribute to scar reduction.

How to Care for Your Face

To gently cleanse the skin and remove dead cells, use a washable cloth with liniment. Then apply a hydrosol—I particularly recommend chamomile hydrosol, which calms sensitive skin. For your skincare, opt for the Sensicalm Premium Serum or the Acnerium Serum on particularly irritated areas. If your skin tolerates aloe vera gel, apply it between the hydrosol and the serum, three times a week in the evening. Be sure to perform an allergy test on your elbow fold to avoid reactions.

Method for the Scalp

For the scalp, follow this protocol before each wash or about 3-4 times a week:

1. Apply aloe vera gel to the affected areas. Wait for 5-10 minutes.

2. Apply the Bio Acnerium Serum and massage it in thoroughly.

3. Leave it on for as long as possible, ideally overnight.

4. Wash your hair with an organic shampoo.

5. Rinse thoroughly to remove all shampoo residue.

Patience is required as results are not immediate. If you have curly or mixed hair, you can apply the serum directly to the scalp without washing, as it doesn't become as greasy as straight hair.

Sometimes, dermatitis can return during stressful periods. An internal approach can be beneficial, and diet plays a role. The influence of gut flora on the skin and health is increasingly studied. Adding probiotics and occasionally eliminating certain ingredients like dairy or gluten can improve skin condition.
