BEST ATOPIC PRONE CREAM?
REGULAR HYDRATION IS CRUCIAL, BUT NEEDN’T BE HEAVY

Article Read Duration 2 min read

Eczema is caused by a deficiency in skin’s natural protective layer of lipids (its barrier function). That’s why it’s important to keep dry eczema-prone skin hydrated using a targeted moisturiser regularly and consistently. However, there’s no need for thick, gloopy textures: Eczema creams can still be light and feel pleasant on the skin.

FIRST UNDERSTAND
WHAT CAUSES ECZEMA

In eczema, the skin is “constitutionally” dry. In other words, it does not produce the same surface oily film that protects healthy skin. This leaves the skin open to attack by external irritants (unsuitable cosmetics, washing powder, etc.) and allergens (house dust mite, pollen etc.). These attacks cause intense itching and inflammation.
Eczema is a genetic or hereditary condition that runs in families and mainly affects babies and children under 5, but it can continue into adulthood.

CONSISTENT, REGULAR HYDRATION
KEEPS ECZEMA AT BAY

If you have eczema on your body or face, the occasional use of emollients (moisturising and hydrating products) is not enough: You have to be consistent about it, even when you’re not currently experiencing a flare-up. Right after every shower or bath, make sure you apply an appropriate atopic-prone skin cream. Use LIPIKAR Baume AP+ when a richer texture is needed (e.g. during flare-ups or dryness in winter), or LIPIKAR Fluide when a lighter texture is desired (e.g. when skin does not feel too dry or in summer).
