Struggling to find a moisturiser that doesn't make your skin flare up? April 22 2015, 0 Comments


For so many people the task of maintaining healthy skin and avoiding eczema flare-ups can be both challenging and distressing.

We all know that moisturising is a vital part of any skincare regime but finding a moisturiser that doesn’t provoke an allergic response can seem an impossible task for those with particularly sensitive skin or who suffer from specific skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

 

Trying to find a moisturiser that does not make your eczema flare up

With such high numbers of people struggling with skin health more and more research is being done to try to pinpoint what can cause a flare-up and identify common allergens that could set off skin reactions.

There are several factors to consider here, including nutrition and diet, environmental factors, emotional wellbeing and, of course, the use of cosmetics and toiletries.

In the world of cosmetics we are overrun with choice; the sheer number of moisturisers and skin products on the market can feel totally overwhelming, especially given how persuasive their advertising and marketing can be. But for those with highly sensitive skin the choice can be very much reduced and can mean much painful trial and error involving cycles of skin reactions and eczema flare-ups before something suitable and safe is found.

 

We want to help you reduce the pain and stress of this hit-and-miss approach by providing some guidelines to commonly used cosmetic ingredients that may cause skin irritation with the  ultimate goal of avoiding those eczema flare-ups triggered by the lotions and potions we put on our skin.
