Dry skin, especially Eczema runs in my family.
If you don’t know what Eczema is, consider yourself lucky.
When my daughter was little she had really dry skin, it was so dry that it began to peel and even leave a rash in some spots.
She often scratched at her skin because it bothered her and became inflamed.
I had never heard of Eczema at this point so I didn’t know what was going on and brought her to the pediatrician to exam her.
He was the first person to explain what Eczema was and it turned out that not only did my daughter have it, but so do I.
I learned not long after that my dad also has this irritating skin issue, we have all needed to use special soaps and lotions to try to not only correct the problem but also to avoid it flaring up.
Unfortunately, most products that we use like most soaps, actually make the problem worse by drying out our skin, leaving it scaly, itchy, and irritated.
Sometimes the rashes can get so bad that the bumps forming on the skin tend to break open and even bleed.
I have recently been given theraplex and these tips posted below about Eczema to share in exchange for product and my real opinions. Keep in mind that all opinions despite this partnership are my own.
As balmy summer weather heats up, it is not unusual for people to experience a dramatic increase in perspiration, often causing sensitive skin to “flare up.” This is especially true for children who have eczema. To help keep your child’s skin “cool in the shade,” the experts who make Theraplex® skincare offer summer tips designed to keep sensitivities in check.
· To help keep your child feeling cooler and drier, avoid the sun when it is at its strongest (from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m)
· Apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. Many pediatric dermatologists recommend physical sunscreens as they may be less irritating than chemical sunscreens.
· If your child has been in the ocean or pool, rinse chlorine or salt off with a gentle cleanser and immediately apply a moisturizer such as Theraplex ClearLotion. A light, fast penetrating emollient oil spray, ClearLotion has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. When applied to damp skin, it uniquely wraps around water on the skin’s surface, sealing in moisture and replacing the natural oils that water and soap can strip away. After towel drying, ClearLotion leaves skin moisturized for hours without greasiness. And, because ClearLotion is a spray, you will be able to apply it to even the wriggliest of children!
· Make sure your child drinks plenty of fluids.
· For added protection and comfort any time of day or night, try Theraplex Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Skin Protectant with natural colloidal oatmeal. It also has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. This enriched moisturizing formula helps to relieve dry skin with superior moisturization that lasts for hours. It soothes your child’s dry, sensitive skin without parabens, fragrances, preservatives, or lanolin.
I have enjoyed using theraplex on my skin as well as my daughter, it has helped to keep our skin moisturized without all of the harmful ingredients in moisturizers that claim to solve the problem.
The noncomedogenic, hypoallergenic formula is free of preservatives, parabens, and fragrances, and is not tested on animals.
