Moisturize with Eucerin
Eucerin has made healthy skin their business for over 100 years. Eucerin products are trusted by dermatologists to repair and maintain healthy skin. They offer products for every skin type from delicate baby skin to dry skin. Plus, they offer specially formulated products to treat skin conditions such as Eczema, Keratosis Pilaris, Rosacea, Diabbetic skin, itchy , aging, and chapped skin.
Eczema generally affects faces, hands, arms, and legs. The good news is that with proper care, eczema can be managed. Consult your dermatologist or doctor if you feel that you may have eczema. Eczema can affect a person’s social and work life as they deal with the uncomfortable itching and appearance.
My husband has eczema that flairs up like clockwork when the weather turns cold. His eyelids get red, then begin to swell, itch, and then the skin flakes for months. Before his flair up started this Fall, he started using Eucern Eczema Relief Body Cream and Instant Therapy Creme to start the battle. In the above photo, you can see his eyelids are a little red, but nothing compared to the stage they normally are at this point! He has experienced a 100% difference after using Eucerin Eczema Relief products compared with products he has used in the past!
Eucerin Eczema Relief products are clinically proven to start working instantly to soothe and calm skin affected by eczema. It begins moisturizing and healing the skin while giving you long-lasting relief from the itching.
I have found all of the Eucerin cremes and lotions to absorb well into the skin. They are not thick and heavy, staying on top of the skin. I, too have dry skin, especially in the Winter. I am very particular in which products I use since I also have sensitive skin. I have had great results every time I use Eucerin. I especially like that their products are fragrance, dye, and steroid free.
Following the above steps to protect your skin from dry, itchy skin and eczema is crucial during the colder months. Start the day off using the Skin Calming Dry Skin Body Wash in a warm, not hot shower. Moisturize your skin with an Eucerin creme or lotion. Reapply throughout the day, especially after washing your hands. I keep one in my purse and at every sink to keep hands moisturized all day long.
You can buy Eucerin products at retailers across the country like Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and CVS. Find your nearest retailer here.
