Treating Eczema Without Steroids #CLnSkinCare #MC

Fighting Eczema without Steroids

CLn When LJ was about 18 months old, he developed a pretty nasty rash all over his face and torso. When we took him to the doctor, we were told that he had eczema and given some advice on how to cut down on the severity and some steroid cream to use on his torso.  I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of putting steroid cream on a toddler, but the idea of getting a secondary infection from the raw skin left after all of his scratching was also pretty concerning. After a few years, his facial and torso breakouts went away, but he started getting a bumpy, itchy rash on his legs.  Once again, we were given steroid cream and instructions to only have him bath every few days to minimize any drying out the water and soap might be causing.   We wound up using the steroid cream much more than I would have liked and tried a ton of soaps, cleansers and moisturizers that promised results but rarely delivered.

CLn review


We were offered a sample of CLn Skin Care to try – both the facial cleanser and body wash.  LJ tried the body wash on his legs as he was in the middle of a flare up when the CLn arrived.  He showered as usual and then turned off the water and applied the body wash to his legs and let it sit for 90 – 120 seconds. He rinsed with luke warm water and patted his legs dry.  The first few times he used it, it complained of a little stinging, probably because his legs were raw from the outbreak.  By the end of the first week, he no longer felt any sting and his legs were looking visibly better.  By the end of the three week trial, his legs looked almost normal despite taking daily showers. We have not used the steroid cream since starting with the CLn. (I cannot remember the last time we have gone 3 weeks with no steroid cream.)

Eczema before and after CLn


As a side note, I tried the facial cleaner even though I didn’t really have any conditions I was aware of. (The facial cleaner is typically used to treat rosacea, acne, and eczema.)  While I have not ever been officially diagnosed with rosacea, it does run in my family and I have a pretty ruddy complexion that I typically cover with foundation.  It’s been quite a few years since I’ve been comfortable venturing out without make up on my face.  I liked the way the CLn facial cleanser made my face feel and used it for several weeks.  One day, I noticed that my skin tone had evened out considerably.  I was even able to give up my heavier foundation for a light BB cream instead.

These are just my anecdotal stories about how CLn has helped my family, but it has also received national recognition from such organizations as the National Eczema Association who awarded CLn the Seal of Acceptance.  While CLn does not claim to cure these conditions,  it calms and soothes the skin and reduces the appearance and feel of dryness and redness.  It is safe for children 6 months and older and can be used head to toe. The ultimate test for us as to whether a product really works is whether we are willing to spend our own money on it once the sample is used up. In this case, I’m sure you have already figured out that we will be using CLn long after this campaign is over!
