In a previous post, I wrote about how Ayana Hair and skin care routine. In that post, I mentioned that Ayana had bumps on her cheek and I didn't know what it was. Since then, we found out that it was Eczema, the doctor said it is very common with children with allergies, which Ayana does have. In that post, you guys left some great comments and I have been able to try some great products.
So...4 months after trying a lot of products on Ayana to see what works best for her, here is what has worked best for us.
A has dry skin in general but battles Eczema on her face that is very persistant in a spot of her left cheek. We tried many, many things that were reccomended and nothing took it away, UNTIL.....we applied straight Tea Tree Oil to it several days and WAA LAA, it went away. The first few days it gets rogher as it will scab over and then heal. We bought it at Wal; Mart for under 5 bucks.
We also apply RENEW intensive skin therapy lotion daily to her face and body and it is awesome stuff!
Our Second favorite lotion is Eucerin Calming Creme. The Eucerin lotion is great but can leave a greasy film on skin that can prevent your skin from breathing and from research it doesn't stand up to handwashing like Renew does, so you have to constantly reapply the Eucerin.
For hair care, we are still trying a variety of products. We just started using the Carol's Daughter Product line but we are experiementing. Their are so many products to try. Ayana has beautiful hair but as it gets longer, it is harder to manage. The back of her head gets so ratty and tangled when she sleeps at night. Do any of you put something on their head to keep it from getting that way and do they keep it on at this age?
More to come on haircare in a future post and my findings on all the differnet products....
We are preparing to leave on Friday to Ethiopia and things are CRAZY at work. I will update you as I can. Thanks for all your support. We are very excited!
