The Best Products + Tips for Dealing with Eczema.

October is Eczema Awareness Month. If you have Eczema, you know that this chronic skin disorder is not fun. The itchy, red and dry cracked skin is more than uncomfortable. I suffer from it as soon as the weather turns to cold and one of my sons does too. With the winter coming up soon, I need to be prepared. It is a fact that Eczema is most often triggered by heat and sweat, the sudden changes in temperature, and extreme cold/dry climates. Those are the exact things that trigger it for me. I am going to share the products that work for me along with some professional tips for dealing with eczema.

The Best Products + Tips for Dealing with Eczema.

For me, my eczema most often flares up around my wrists and the lower part of my arms. I don't leave my home without AVEENO Eczema Therapy Hand Cream. I also have a tube on my desk and on my night stand too. The hand cream, along with other products in the collection (more below) contain the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. The NEA recommends establishing a daily skin care routine focusing on the basics which including bathing and moisturizing AND using products with the NEA Seal of Acceptance on them for best results.

The AVEENO Eczema Therapy Collection is developed with leading dermatologists to provide relief to skin with eczema. Before I used the AVEENO Eczema Therapy Hand Cream, I used the AVEENO Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream. Both of these instantly provide relief to dry, itchy, irritated skin, and better than anything else that I have tried.

The AVEENO Eczema Therapy Collection products are formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal, which effectively relieves the itch that I cannot stand and this itch is very much common with eczema. The products have been proven to relieve eczema prone skin and to moisturize to help strengthen the skin's natural barrier and prevent the recurrence of dry skin. I think that is a huge part of it.

There is an AVEENO Eczema Therapy Collection for Adult and Baby.

For Adult:
AVEENO Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream
AVEENO Eczema Therapy Bath Treatment
AVEENO Eczema Therapy Hand Cream

For Baby:
AVEENO Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream
AVEENO Eczema Therapy Soothing Bath Treatment

I received some great tips from Dr. Kenneth Beer about eczema

  • DO use hydrating cleansers and barrier creams with soothing ingredients, like colloidal oatmeal, to maintain the integrity of the skin's barrier
  • DO use products with ceramides, an essential lipid naturally found within the skin that plays a key role enhancing and restoring the skin's barrier
  • DO use fragrance-free laundry detergent to wash clothes, sheets and towels
  • DON'T use body lotions with irritants, which can aggravate skin and cause eczema to flare
  • DON'T use products with fragrances or harsh dyes
