I've had eczema for the majority of my life and although it isn't as bad as it used to be, I know how much of a common skin condition it is, and I'll admit it still bothers me when I get flare ups! I wanted to share a review of some products I've been using recently to really soothe and combat the irritation from the brand Aveeno!
Aveeno Bath and Shower Oil
This product is a proper little luxury and a treat for me as I'm so used to avoiding shower gels at all costs as they tend to aggravate and irritate my eczema, but this is one of the only products I've found to benefit my skin.
I like to use this in my bath at least once a week during a flare up - I add approx 2 teaspoons to my bath and my skin feels seriously soft afterwards. You can also massage this oil directly into wet skin in the shower - luxury! This also smells divine thanks to the Colloidal Oatmeal.
Aveeno Moisturising Cream
If you suffer from eczema you'll know how important it is to moisturise to keep your skin soft and to prevent irritation. I've been adoring the Moisturising Cream which comes in a pump bottle making it a pleasure to use. I love to apply this after my shower or bath (aptly named the soak-and-seal' approach which is recommended if you have dry skin.
Even if you don't suffer from eczema, this is also perfect for dry and sensitive skin and can even be used on babies (3 months plus) making it a bathroom staple.
Both of these products contain Colloidal Oatmeal which is a really fantastic ingredient for soothing, moisturising, protecting and cleansing skin to keep it healthy and beautiful. I've also found that using the products more regularly really helps to enhance it's effects leaving my skin feeling soft, smooth and ultimately a lot more comfortable!
I really recommend these products if you have dry skin - let me know if you try them!
