Do you have inflamed or irritated skin, or having a flare-up of eczema? It's still possible to have a skin routine that will maintain your skin barrier, and help reduce negative outcomes such as swelling, itchiness, scaly skin amongst others. Keeping your skin hydrated can reduce the severity of flare-ups, and for some people can help avoid them altogether.
We've collected our favourite products that we recommend to friends, family and customers who suffer from eczema.
It is so important to avoid harsh soaps and detergents, so try a gentle milky cleanser that locks in moisture. Be sure to use cool or lukewarm water, as hot water can damage the skin's barrier. Do not use a rough cloth for cleansing - we recommend a soft muslin cloth if you need to use one.
If cleansing is too much for your skin, try using a micellar cleanser. Best used on a high-quality cotton pad to remove makeup and the day's impurities, this nifty product tones and cleanses all in one. Don't rub, instead but press the pad against your skin before gently wiping.
Hydrating your skin with a high quality moisturiser is your best bet against eczema flare ups - and there are so many great options out there! French brands such as Bioderma or Uriage specialise in creating products for reactive skin.

MY SEARCH IS OVER!
But finally, I have found my holy grail sunscreen. One of my biggest concerns is finding a sunscreen that plays nicely with my makeup. I always wear MAC studio fix powder and so many of the sunscreens that I have tried make me look awful, greasy, cakey and patchy.
This sunscreen left the SLIGHTEST white cast on my skin, but I do mean SLIGHT, I have dark skin so I think that is why. I was initially afraid of the beige, tinted colour but it blends in perfectly and does not leave any colour on the skin (so I think this sunscreen will be suitable for all skin tones). The sunscreen was not greasy, my makeup went on perfectly, my oily skin was kept under control and the sunscreen feels light, just like a moisturiser. I am in love with this product, it is everything I have been looking for, and more. If you are looking for a good physical sunscreen, look no further.
