My little sister has had horrible eczema for years and the only thing that seems to clear it up is steroids but finally the doctor told her to rub mineral oil all over her and get in the tanning bed and it really helps a lot since she can't stay on steroids all the time! A bath with oatmeal in it also helps soothe the skin

Natural sunlight is good for skin in small doses and provided you're being sun smart.
Sunbeds (solariums) mimic the sun but can be just as damaging if not more so.
Be careful if you have sensitive skin and follow the appropriate aftercare just as though you've been in the sun.

I've always used Designer Skin Black, and it works really well to tan you, and it doesn't irritate eczema. I also started on a 4 minute bed and worked my up to 12.

I have/had eczema and the only thing that would help mine was the Neosporins Eczema Essentials(: Its a set with a body wash, moisturizer, and itch cream and its amazing. (: Shows results in 3 days. My dry skin is gone but i have scars from all that itching i did. Wish i found neosporin sooner(:

I've heard from a few people to try sunbeds as I used to have extremely bad eczema on my hands and arms. Supposedly the sunbed minimises the eczema, someone I knows friend tried it and she had really bad eczema and it almost completely went away. Hope this helps :)

I use a sunbed mainly to keep a decent completion. A slight tan is obviously the outcome of using beds, but I started on them because my skin was dry/flaky in places & quite an uneven tone. It works wonders. I use them for only 3 min at a time & have a lotion. Moisturise after using & make sure it's for sensitive skin. I know the dangers of using sunbeds, but be sensible & chances are you'll be fine.
