Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. If you or someone you love battles with eczema, you know how frustrating and uncomfortable it can be, and how it can affect your self-confidence. We have delved into everything eczema for you so that we can help you find everything you need to know; from its causes and symptoms to effective management strategies. 

Understanding Eczema: The Basics

Eczema is a complex skin condition that can manifest in various ways. Common symptoms include redness, itching, dryness, and the appearance of rash-like patches. Eczema can occur at any age, but it often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. Its exact cause is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Triggers for eczema flare-ups can include stress, allergens, and weather changes, even a change in fabric softener can trigger it.

The Importance of Skincare in Eczema Management

While eczema is a chronic condition, effective skincare can significantly reduce the symptoms. Here are some skincare secrets to help manage eczema:

  • Moisturise Regularly: Keeping your skin well-hydrated is crucial in eczema management. Look for hypoallergenic, fragrance-free moisturisers.

  • Avoid Harsh Soaps: Many soaps and body washes contain harsh chemicals that can exacerbate eczema. Opt for mild, fragrance-free cleansers, which are less likely to irritate your skin.

  • Bathe Wisely: Long, hot showers can strip your skin of essential oils. Instead, take short, lukewarm baths and you could also try adding colloidal oatmeal or Epsom salts to soothe your skin.

  • Identify Triggers: Pay attention to what triggers your eczema flare-ups. Common culprits include certain foods, allergens, and stress. Minimise exposure to these triggers as much as possible.

  • Prescription Treatments: In severe cases, a dermatologist may prescribe topical steroids or other medications. Always follow your doctor's advice when using prescription treatments. We would also recommend reading our guide to skincare safety. 

Meet Eucerin: Your Eczema Ally

Eucerin is a Renude-approved skincare brand with a long history of helping people manage their eczema effectively. They specialise in creating products that are gentle on sensitive skin while delivering powerful results. Eucerin's eczema-specific products are formulated with ingredients like ceramides, which help repair the skin barrier and are fragrance-free to reduce the risk of irritation.

Some Eucerin products to consider for eczema management:

  • Eucerin UreaRepair Plus 5% Urea Body Wash: This body wash contains very gentle cleansing agents, making it suitable for cleansing dry to extremely dry skin. It is further enriched with Urea and NMFs that bind moisture into the stratum corneum (the upper layer of the skin). The formula is ideal for daily cleansing as it moisturises skin, and supports its natural barrier function.

  • Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10% Urea Lotion: This gives very dry, rough body skin the daily care it needs. The formula has been clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver immediate relief and intense, long-lasting moisturisation, delaying dryness and roughness for up to 48 hours. 

  • Eucerin Anti Redness Concealing Day Cream: This non-comedogenic formula is green tinted to instantly reduce visible skin redness, whilst SPF25 protects against UV damage. It also includes patented SymSitive, which helps to regulate the sensory response, and liquorice root to soothe, resulting in less reactive skin over time, with clinical results showing a reduction in skin redness after 4 weeks of use.

  • Eucerin UltraSensitive Soothing Care: For Normal to Combination this has a light formula, containing SymSitive*, an innovative active ingredient specially developed for hypersensitive skin. SymSitive* acts as an effective sensitivity regulator directly at the source of the hyper-reactivity. 

Living with eczema doesn't have to be a constant battle. With the right skincare routine and the help of trusted brands like Eucerin, you can effectively manage your eczema and enjoy healthier, more comfortable skin.
