If you suffer from eczema, you’re not alone. The most common form, atopic eczema, affects one in five children and one in ten adults in the UK. This non-contagious skin condition can cause a lot of discomfort, with the urge to scratch almost impossible to ignore – unfair, when you know it only makes symptoms worse. Luckily, there are products you can buy that will alleviate the physical signs and protect eczema-prone skin. Here are some of our favourites.
E45 is a much-loved lotion for dry, irritated skin – and with great reason. This unperfumed lotion is light, cooling, and hypoallergenic. It can be used all over your body, including the face and hands, to prevent sensitive skin from becoming dry. In fact, it’s been clinically proven to reduce the roughness and flaking associated with eczema. Pick up a bottle of E45 Moisturising Lotion 200ml for rapid relief.
2. The soothing solution
Another hero product in the skincare world, Sudocrem has been around for 90 years now. This wonder cream helps to soothe dry patches and calm the redness you often see during eczema flare-ups. It forms a barrier that protects against eczema-causing irritants such as air pollution. This small pot is handy for chucking in your bag on days out, so you can take care of your skin wherever you go.
3. The moisturising wash
Not all face washes are created equal. When it comes to eczema-prone skin, it’s important to choose a product that won’t leave your face feeling tight or dry. The Simple Moisturising Facial Wash 150ml helps to maintain your skin’s natural barrier and leaves it feeling soft and replenished. Not only is it dermatologically tested, it’s also non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores. Enriched with vitamin B5, this face wash is especially effective for dry skin.
4. The good witch
Witch hazel naturally cleanses, tones and smooths skin, making it a wonderful ingredient for skincare products. Witch Skincare has been using it for 50 years and we love their Witch Blemish Stick for reducing inflammation and blotchy skin. Simply dab some on when blemishes appear and let the witch work its magic!
5. The cleansing gel
When eczema strikes, there’s nothing better than a product that leaves your skin feeling quenched and hydrated. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Cleanser 200ml does exactly that, with its patented cleansing technology. The lightweight gel activates with water, so lather onto wet skin and gently massage before rinsing. Then apply a moisturiser to really lock in that hydration.
