The right mois­turiser for eczema

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

iF you or your chil­dren have eczema, you need to choose the right mois­turiser. Those suf­fer­ing from eczema tend to have skin that has the ten­dency to itch and be in­flamed when trig­gered by day-to-day al­ler­gens that do not af­fect those with nor­mal or dry skin.

Us­ing over-the-counter mois­turis­ers for dry skin is not suited for skin with eczema and could worsen the con­di­tion.

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

Some brands of mois­turis­ers have added “humec­tant agents”, which at­tract mois­ture from the en­vi­ron­ment to hy­drate the skin.

Eczema skin is sen­si­tive to harm- ful in­gre­di­ents such as added fra­grance, sodium lau­ryl sul­phate (SLS), ar­ti­fi­cial colour­ing, an­i­mal pro­teins and parabens, among oth­ers.

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

A French prod­uct man­u­fac­tured in Italy, it can be used on its own or in com­bi­na­tion with con­ven­tional med­i­ca­tions.

It is clin­i­cally proven to help re­lieve itchy and in­flamed skin while pro­vid­ing a long-last­ing mois­tur­is­ing ef­fect. It re­stores the nat­u­ral oils of the skin and is also suit­able for nappy rash.

Atopi­clair is not a drug and is not a steroid, though it re­duces the sen­si­tiv­ity of in­flamed skin and helps to re­lieve burn­ing, itch­ing and pain by pro­tect­ing it from fur­ther ir­ri­ta­tion.

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

In a 43-day clin­i­cal study in ba­bies, chil­dren and adults, it was 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 and for bet­ter sleep.

A mild sting­ing sen­sa­tion can some­times be felt upon the first few ap­pli­ca­tions of Atopi­clair.

This hap­pens es­pe­cially when your baby’s skin is highly in­flamed. Do not worry as it will go away af­ter a few ap­pli­ca­tions.

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

Apart from hav­ing just oc­clu­sive and humec­tant agents, Atopi­clair is richly for­mu­lated with anti-in­flam­ma­tion, anti-itch, anti-pro­tease and an­tiox­i­dant agents work­ing hard to con­tin­u­ously calm, pro­tect and re­pair eczema prone skin.

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

It is even doc­u­mented in pub­lished clin­i­cal tri­als that it pro­vides itch relief within min­utes.

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