Eczema: Which Cream / Product Is Best For Dry, Itchy Skin?

Dermatologist-Approved Eczema Creams 2020

Itching is always annoying! Since we were born, we all experience itching and it irritates us a lot. However, many times itching or any skin conditions have a dire consequence and can often lead to skin diseases. Various skin conditions associated with itchy skin include Eczema, skin dryness and hard skin.  Eczema is a condition where the skin barrier isn’t working as well as it should be; when the skin’s outermost layer develops microscopic cracks, the skin loses hydration and it becomes inflamed. It is very important to identify these conditions and use essential skin care products before they become serious. Sometimes, it is difficult to understand which specific product is suitable for a particular skin condition. Try to avoid solutions that include irritants, such as perfumes and glycolic acids. Instead, find natural-based topical eczema creams that are supercharged with essential skin agents, such as ceramides.  Here are a few skin care products which you should consider to treat skin problems-

Moisturizer

Moisturizers are the perfect remedies for treating itchy skin. Itchy skin is often formed when the skin is not taken good care or if there are any infections. Using moisturizer brings back the original quality of the skin. However, it is very important to choose the best moisturizer which does not have any other unwanted side effects. We suggest you use Suu Balm™ Dual Rapid Itch Relieving & Restoring Moisturizer

This moisturizer is a dual purpose moisturizer for treating itchy skin. Formulated at the National Skin Center Singapore, this moisturizer contains no steroids. Menthol is one of its core ingredients which works faster, provides cooling sensation and is even suitable for people with sensitive skin. Suu Balm Rapid Itch Moisturizer contains naturally occurring ingredients making it very safe. It also features a light and non-sticky texture making it comfortable to use. Give 5 minutes after applying to see your itch vanish and restore moisture balance in your skin.

Despite its use advantage, we advise not to use moisturizers on broken skin, wet skin, mouth or eyes as menthol stings in those areas. Do not apply directly on a kid’s skin before testing a little bit to see if your kid’s skin is sensitive to menthol or not.

Body Wash

In order to heal dry skin, moisturizer is not sufficient. The problem with dry skin is, when scratched it gives temporary relief but causes infections and they spread across the body. So, for any skin irritation it is advised not to scratch. Instead, it is good to use a body wash. However, some body wash products contain artificial ingredients which damage skin if not used properly. We advise you to use Suu Balm™ Dual Cooling & Moisturising Cream Body Wash for the many benefits it has.

Suu Balm Cooling and Moisturizing Body Wash is a great body wash useful as a remedy for dry skin and in prevention of eczema. It is also suitable and safe to use on all skin types including sensitive skin. It helps your skin stay moisturized and refreshed. Formulated at National Skin Care Centre, Singapore this body wash is soap and sulphate free. It contains menthol to provide a cooling effect on eczema prone skin. This body wash contains 5 moisturizing ingredients including shea butter and sodium hyaluronate which heals skin gently and quickly.

Always use the body wash while showering or bathing regularly. Apply to the body gently and rinse it off. Do not apply if you are allergic to any of the components present in the body wash. For best results, we advise you to have short showers and not to take bath with very hot water. After showering, gently apply the moisturizer to dry or itchy body regions.

Scalp Moisturizers

When it comes to scalp, you need to be more careful. Scalp is one of the most prone areas for skin conditions. It is constantly exposed to outdoor surroundings and is one of the most sensitive skin regions of the body. It is also the place for hair which can carry a lot of dust and unwanted particles. So, it is very important to take care of the scalp by cleaning it properly. Scalp also attracts a lot of dandruff and requires regular cleaning. Since the scalp is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of the skin, skin treatment products commonly used will not be adequate and you will need specially designed products to treat scalp. In order for best protection, we advise you to use Suu Balm™ Rapid Itch Relief Scalp Spray Moisturiser.

This moisturizer is a rapid itch relieving water-based moisturizer ideal for people with scalp conditions like bad dandruff, itchy scalp or eczema. It is formulated at the National Skin Centre, Singapore and is free from drying alcohol, steroids, paraben and fragrances making it very suitable for all scalp types, even on sensitive scalp. It also contains menthol to provide cooling relief, 5 types of ceramides and anti-fungal piroctone olamine making it safe and suitable for sensitive skin.

Use the spray whenever your scalp gets itchy and flaking. Massage it on the scalp to stop itching. Do not spray into the eyes, ears or open/cut skin. Avoid using it if you are allergic to the ingredients.

Facial Cleansers and Moisturizers

Unlike regular moisturizers and body washes, facial cleansers and moisturizers are different. The skin on the face is thin, sensitive and harbours important organs of the body. So, it is very important to be more careful while using skincare products. Also, since facial skin is prone to skin conditions, specific products are essential. We recommend the Suu Balm™ Gentle Moisturising Facial Cleanser and the Suu Balm™ Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser.

Suu Balm™ Gentle Moisturising Facial Cleanser

Suu Balm™ Gentle Moisturising Facial Cleanser is an ultra-gentle cleanser for sensitive and eczema prone skin. While many other cleansers are alkaline, Suu Balm considers ideal acidity to restore the skin barrier to a healthy state. It consists of rich creamy Shea Butter which moisturizes the skin while cleansing. This cleanser is free from soap, sulphates, preservatives and fragrances, and cleanses without drying the skin.

Use a small amount on wet skin and gently cleanse your face. Use the Suu Balm™ Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser after cleansing and drying. Do not use it if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

Suu Balm™ Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser.

Suu Balm™ Cooling Itch Relief Facial Moisturiser is a unique, itch relieving moisturizer specially formulated for sensitive, eczema prone facial skin with menthol for cooling effect, and it doesn’t even sting the eyes. This moisturizer contains ceramides, northern truffle and safflower extracts to repair the skin naturally. The texture of this moisturizer is light and non-sticky designed for hot and humid climate.

Apply and massage onto your face until the cream is fully absorbed. We advise you to use it whenever your skin is itchy, dry or irritated or every morning and evening after cleansing with Suu Balm™ Gentle Moisturising Facial Cleanser. Do not apply if you are allergic to the ingredients or on cut skin.

Skin care products for kids

When it comes to kids, you need to scrutinize skin care products extensively. Children are more prone to skin infections or conditions like eczema, dryness and itchy skin while having more sensitive growing skin. So, regular moisturizers or cleansers are not suitable. Special moisturizers are required which are specially designed for children’s skin. We advise you the Suu Balm™ Kids Dual Rapid Itch Relieving & Restoring Ceramide Moisturiser for gentle yet fast relief of itch on sensitive and dry skin, restoring the skin barrier and moisturising the skin.

After using the moisturizer, we recommend you to use the Suu Balm™ Kids Dual Soothing & Moisturising Head-to-Toe Wash for gently cleansing the sensitive and dry skin leaving it soothed and moisturised. This soap, sulphate, fragrance, paraben and preservative-free head-to-toe wash is suitable for kids of all ages.

These products are specially designed from their counterparts Suu Balm™ Dual Rapid Itch Relieving & Restoring Moisturizer and Suu Balm™ Dual Cooling & Moisturising Cream Body Wash to be more gentle and safer.

Skincare products are vital for any eczema prone or irritated, itchy and dry skin, be it for adults or a child. If these skin conditions were ignored, they can pose a severe inconvenience later on such as infections. So, it is always a good idea to regularly maintain healthy skin. Also, using these products regularly keeps the skin fresh and clean.
