The cold weather lately has wreaked havoc on my eczema and for the first time I’ve suddenly got awful eczema and dry patches around and under my eyes, as well as the usual patches on my arms and hands. I like to use a variety of super moisturising, emollient type products including the REN Emollient Rescue Cream but it can be quite thick and takes a while to rub in and I am always on the hunt for a new rescue cream to fix my chapped dry skin.
With one in five children and one in twelve adults in the UK suffering from Eczema, you’d be surprised at the lack of products for eczema available on the highstreet etc that aren’t prescribed. For a quick day fix I’ve been using the Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Soothing Emollient care. This cream is a fab restorative cream that can be used for a multitude of skin issues. The intensive dermo-consolidation formula intensely soothes the dysfunction factors of atopic skin, focusing upon its biological reconstruction to recreate a healthier environment. used daily, it has both an immediate soothing effect as well as long-term benefits including reducing the onset of flare ups and decreasing the severity for continually soothed, comfortable and itch-free skin.
Atoderm Intensive is suitable for the face and body and is fragrance-free, paraben-free and hypoallergenic and the Intensive Soothing Emollient Care cream is created with Bioderma’s exclusive Skin Barrier Therapy complex which restores the integrity of the skin barrier, prevents the pentration of allergens and enhances suppleness and comfort. Added Zinc and Betasitosterol provide intense anti-flammatory care, while PEA and a biomimetic active ingredient helps to stop the itch. That dreaded itch. Simply massage onto skin as and when needed. The lightweight formula is really moisturising and sinks into the skin really quickly for extra comfort and I’ve been carting this tube around in my bag and i’ve been reaching for it a lot knowing that it’s on hand to soothe my skin.
For £13 you can pick up a massive 200ml bottle that is well worth the investment. Although I do wish there were smaller travel/bag friendly options available!
Have any of you tried this cream, what did you think? Do you have any skin conditions or eczema, what do you use to keep it under control?
