Do you feel like you've tried everything that you can to make your Eczema go away?

With up to 15 Million people in the UK suffering from Eczema you’re not alone. 

In this article we’re going to share with you our top 5 easy follow tips for healthy skin and for caring for your sensitive skin. Along with the products we most recommend to care for it.

1. Avoid using too many detergents/fabric softeners in your laundry

Detergents and fabric softeners may irritate eczema prone skin. The chemicals contained in some detergents can worsen the symptoms. It is important to find a detergent that is not irritant to your skin, many manufacturers offer special formulations that are eczema friendly.

2. Moisturise after taking a bath or shower

The best time to moisturise skin is directly after taking a bath or shower. Lukewarm water has been shown to penetrate the skin better than hot water. The problem with this is that the water evaporates shortly after drying off, moisturising with a thick layer of cream is the best way to lock in the moisture.

Allowing the moisture to evaporate can actually have the opposite effect and make your skin feel more flaky and dry. Our Sidekick Day Cream and Midnight Feast Night Cream were formulated to be suitable for acne prone skin. Many of our customers have seen great results using them.

3. Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight

Eczema thrives when the skin is exposed to a lot of sunlight. Avoiding being in the sun for extended periods of time is a great way to minimize the symptoms of eczema. Always remember to use a sunscreen that doesn't contain irritants, you want to protect your skin from the sun.

4. Skin care for eczema

Not all moisturisers are created equal and using the wrong product on your skin can cause damage to the already irritated skin and worsen the symptoms of eczema. The Sönd Sidekick Day Cream and Midnight Feast Night Cream are filled with powerful minerals and natural ingredients that will help improve your skin. These products were formulated for sensitive skin to minimise the chances of skin irritation.

5. Take holistic care of your skin

It is important to remember that the skin is an organ like any other in our bodies and it requires holistic care. Diet is just as important as using skincare products developed for acne prone skin like the Sönd range used here.

It is also important to follow a regular skin care routine for eczema to maintain your skin in perfect shape. Remember that the best cream for eczema will be able to lock in moisture effectively.
