What is eczema (or dermatitis) and what are the symptoms of eczema (or dermatitis)?
Eczema is a skin disorder characterised by a local inflammatory response. Generally, eczema is associated with allergic responses. Different forms and causes for eczema exist: it can range from a simple and short-term local irritation to frequent and painful skin eruptions which are sometimes incapacitating. Among the different types of eczema, there are atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), acute vesiculobullous hand eczema…
The symptoms of eczema can be
- thick red patches
- thin vesicles
- itching (pruritus)
- dry skin
This disease generally evolves by flare-ups, interrupted by phases of inactivity.
How to relieve eczema (or dermatitis)?
Nowadays, there is no existing treatment to cure eczema. However, treatments are available to relieve its symptoms.
There are different kind of treatments which can be
- local (antiseptic, topical corticosteroids, silver nitrate, hydrating products)
- systemic (antihistamines, corticosteroids, ciclosporin and possibly antibiotics in case of secondary infections; retinoids and immunosuppressive drugs can also be prescribed for chronic hand eczema).
Nevertheless, in the long term, medicinal treatments tend to have side effects which limit their use. Thus, other approaches can be considered such as water cures or PUVA or PUVB phototherapies.
How to relieve eczema (or dermatitis) every day with Skintifique ?
At Skintifique,we developed very innovative products which show great results to moisturise and soothe skin affected by eczema. These products can be used either alone or as companion care. Thus, we decided to create an eczema pack that contains:
The Moisturising Lotion HP. This face and body lotion moisturises the skin deep down. It is particularly recommended for reactive, allergic skin and skin suffering from eczema. The lotion’s smooth texture is quickly absorbed with no stickiness or shine. Non-occlusive, it moisturises intensely and lets the skin breathe. This is a great moisturiser to use during the day to relieve skin affected by eczema.
The Hydrating Gel Plus HS. This Gel has the texture of a cream. It is an exceptional face and body moisturiser which can help to regenerate your skin. It provides a triple emollient, humectant, and soothing action. Moreover, this skin care gradually releases its moisturising and soothing agents on demand. With a creamy texture, it delivers an intense and long-lasting moisturising and soothing effect to skins suffering from eczema. We recommend to use it at night to help repair the skin damaged by eczema.
There is a difference in texture between these two products. The Gel has a rich texture and the Moisturizing Lotion has a smoother texture.
Also, these products contain a limited number of ingredients, which were all selected carefully, so as to minimise the risk of unwanted reactions. Both products do not contain any paraben, silicone, mineral oil, fragrance or EDTA. This gel is also free of corticosteroids and cortisone.
What are the results of the eczema pack?
Using the Moisturising Lotion HP during the day and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS at night shows a clear improvement:
