When it comes to skincare products to help treat eczema, you’ve likely found that it takes more than just a good moisturizer to avoid red, itchy, flaky skin. While a hydrating moisturizer is always a must, you should also consider other products being used as part of your daily skincare routine. Whether it’s your cleanser, sunscreen, makeup, or face mask, anything and everything you apply to your skin can affect your skin flaring up.
When purchasing skincare products for your routine,be sure to include the below ingredients to help soothe and avoid eczema flare ups!
HYALURONIC ACID (OR HA)
This substance is naturally produced by the body in skin and connective tissues. When used in skin products, it attracts and retains moisture to help skin appear smoother.
NIACINAMIDE (OR VITAMIN B3)
Products containing niacinamide help to reduce inflammation and redness by boosting the skin’s natural barrier. Apply products with this ingredient prior to applying makeup to avoid any redness showing through.
Shea butter contains a high concentration of vitamins, fatty acids, anti-inflammatory properties and healing properties – all of which condition and soothe the skin.
Colloidal Oatmeal is used to soften, soothe, and elevate moisture in the skin. It can be added to creams and lotions to relieve itchy, scaly skin from conditions such as eczema, rashes, or burns.
