Eczema Awareness Week is on from September 16th – 22nd 2019. Eczema is the general term for a group of skin conditions that causes dry, itchy, scaly and red skin. Eczema affects 1 in 12 adults in Ireland, and 1 in 5 children. There is no cure for Eczema but in most cases it is manageable. Eczema is identified as areas of the skin will become very itchy, dry and also have inflamed red patches. This will generally occur on the face and body. Keeping skin hydrated is vital, and emollients are great for moisturising the skin and preventing it from drying out.
Marie Therese Burke, Head Trainer with Graham Anthony Distribution, identifies that topical emollients need to contain active ingredients to bring immediate and lasting relief to eczema, psoriasis or any atopy prone skin. Emollients are medical moisturisers that can be used several times a day. Emollients will help to restore your skin barrier, reduce the frequency of your Eczema flare ups, and will stop irritants and allergens which cause these flare ups.
Chronoxine is a new innovation in this field – it is an anti-inflammatory that has a soothing action that will bring immediate relief. Cerasterol -2F are Omega 3 and 6 Ceramides with Phytosterols to restructure and soothe the skin whilst providing long lasting relief. All of these ingredients are included in the Uriage XEMOSE range.
