How do you know if you have eczema-prone skin?
The symptoms of eczema-prone skin on the face are inflammation, recognisable by red, very dry patches with blisters on the sides of the nose, ears, cheeks, eyelids and neck.
This skin condition happens on very dry and damaged skin, with flare-ups. In other words: periods of worsening symptoms and increased itchiness, interspersed with periods of remission.
How do you look after eczema-prone skin on the face?
People with facial eczema-prone skin should first be treated by a health professional, preferably a dermatologist.
Which cream should you use for eczema-prone skin on the face?
As a preventive measure and in addition to treatments prescribed by your GP or dermatologist, a skincare routine suitable for eczema-prone skin helps to space out flare-ups.
- To cleanse eczema-prone skin, the XeraCalm A.D Cleansing Oil used with lukewarm water, cleanses without aggravating the skin's dryness. The lipids in this cleanser nourishes and restores the skin barrier.
- Additional rinsing with Thermal Spring Water Spray soothes and calms.
- Emollients are the ultimate moisturising and nourishing products for facial eczema-prone skin. Our laboratory has formulated hypoallergenic, fragrance-free emollients to restore the skin's barrier function and respect the cutaneous flora of eczema-prone skin. The XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cream is recommended for skin prone to itching caused by skin dryness and the XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Balm is richer for skin prone to itching caused by severe skin dryness.
- You could also apply XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cream as a day cream as its texture is quite light and XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Balm as a night cream as its formula replenishes more lipids.
