Choos­ing the right mois­turiser

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

If you or your chil­dren suf­fer from eczema, you need to choose a suit­able skin mois­turiser. Eczema is a skin con­di­tion that has the ten­dency to be itchy and in­flamed when trig­gered by dayto-day al­ler­gens that do not usu­ally af­fect chil­dren and adults with nor­mal or dry skin.

Us­ing over-the-counter mois­turis­ers for dry skin may not be suit­able for eczema and may make the skin con­di­tion worse.

Check the la­bel on the prod­ucts to en­sure that the mois­turis­ers that you buy do not con­tain harm­ful in­gre­di­ents for eczema such as added fra­grance, sodium lau­ryl sul­phate (SLS), ar­ti­fi­cial colour­ing, an­i­mal pro­teins and parabens as th­ese prod­ucts have a ten­dency to ir­ri­tate the skin.

Mois­turis­ers are mainly for­mu­lated with “oc­clu­sive agents” to cover your baby’s del­i­cate skin with a layer of oil to help pre­vent ex­ces­sive wa­ter loss, thus keep­ing the skin moist.

Some brands of mois­turis­ers are added with “humec­tant agents” that at­tract mois­tures from the en­vi­ron­ment to hy­drate the skin.

Spe­cialised prod­uct

Atopi­clair is a spe­cialised prod­uct of france man­u­fac­tured in Italy.

It is rec­om­mended by der­ma­tol­o­gists and pae­di­a­tri­cians world­wide as a spe­cialised mois­turiser to treat eczema with­out steroids in ba­bies, chil­dren and adults.

Atopi­clair is clin­i­cally proven to help re­lieve itch and in­flam­ma­tion while pro­vid­ing long-last­ing mois­tur­is­ing ef­fect and re­stores nat­u­ral oils of the skin.

Atopi­clair is also suit­able for nappy rash. Atopi­clair is nei­ther a drug nor a steroid.

Atopi­clair re­duces the sen­si­tiv­ity of in­flamed skin and helps re­lieve burn­ing, itch­ing and pain by pro­tect­ing it from fur­ther ir­ri­ta­tion.

Ef­fec­tive and safe

Daily use of Atopi­clair may also help to re­duce the de­pen­dency on steroid creams to con­trol itch and in­flam­ma­tion.

In a 43-day clin­i­cal study in ba­bies, chil­dren and adults, it has shown that more than 90% of Atopi­clair users do not re­quire help from steroid creams when ap­ply­ing Atopi­clair three times a day.

As a tip, ap­ply Atopi­clair be­fore your baby goes to sleep at night to help re­duce scratch­ing at night for bet­ter sleep.

Mild sting­ing sen­sa­tion may some­times hap­pen within the first few ap­pli­ca­tions of Atopi­clair. This hap­pens es­pe­cially when your baby’s skin is highly in­flamed.

Do not worry as this will go away af­ter a few ap­pli­ca­tions.

How Atopi­clair Works

Atopi­clair is for­mu­lated with key in­gre­di­ents that con­tain CPR prop­er­ties to “calm, pro­tect and re­pair” eczema.

Apart from hav­ing oc­clu­sive and humec­tant agents, Atopi­clair is richly for­mu­lated with an­ti­in­flam­ma­tion, anti-itch, an­tipro­tease and an­tiox­i­dant agents work­ing hard to con­tin­u­ously calm and re­pair eczema.

When used as di­rected, it can help to re­lieve the itch­ing, burn­ing and dis­com­fort in atopic and hy­per­sen­si­tive skin.

Atopi­clair is doc­u­mented in pub­lished clin­i­cal tri­als to pro­vide itch relief within min­utes.

(fastest time doc­u­mented in clin­i­cal tri­als is less than 2.42 min­utes).

Atopi­clair of­fers pow­er­ful hy­dra­tion and long-last­ing mois­ture. Atopi­clair can help to pre­vent ex­ces­sive trans-epi­der­mal wa­ter loss for up to 72 hours. It also re­stores the nat­u­ral oils in your skin.
