I have

L'atopie en détails

to help me live better

In the shower

  • Use an ultra-rich cleansing oil that's soap and fragrance free.
  • Never use soap, fragranced products or products containing alcohol.
  • Don't rub your skin too hard with a towel.

On my skin

  • Apply prescription creams to inflamed areas as directed by your doctor
  • Apply moisturising cream at least twice daily to hydrate your skin.
  • Soothe itching sensations* by repeatedly applying a steady spray of Avène Thermal Spring Water.
  • Use dermo-cosmetic makeup.


  • Choose clothes made of soft materials like cotton.
  • Use hypoallergenic detergents.
  • Don't use harsh chemical cleaning products.


Sometimes people ask me if 'm sunburned. Flare-ups can be challenging mentally as well as physically. XeraCalm doesn't cure my eczema, because nothing can yet, but not wanting to scratch all the time is a huge win.


A few months ago I stayed at the Avène Hydrotherapy Center. I learned many new skin care techniques, like gently patting my skin dry with a towel instead of rubbing.

Turia Pitt

This moisturiser is a total game changer for me. Super moisturising, not sticky, not gloopy, not too thick, not too thin. It’s just right in my book. They’ve made the pump easier to use, which means I give it 10 stars.

How my skin works

Eczema is a complex disease associated with: Skin with a damaged barrier that cannot completely repair itself, allowing microorganisms, allergens and irritants to penetrate, whilst losing moisture excessively. A heightened immune system with increased sensitivity, causing the skin to be more reactive.

The skin acts as a protective barrier:

  • Skin cells, and the 'cement' that binds them together, are normal in composition and levels.
  • Water evaporates at ordinary levels.
  • Thus, allergens are unable to penetrate through the skin.

The skin cannot fulfill its function
as a protective barrier:

  • Skin cells, and the 'cement' that binds them together, are impaired.
  • Too much water evaporates.
  • Skin is dehydrated and dry.
  • Allergens can penetrate the skin and cause inflammation.
