Q. I OFTEN FLARE UP WITH ECZEMA PATCHES ON MY FACE AND I’M WORRIED ABOUT MY WEDDING. PLEASE HELP! Caitlin, 32
MARGARET: Stress plays a big part in eczema flare-ups, so it’s important to make time for relaxation. Also, make sure you avoid known aggravating factors (synthetic fragrances, strong detergents, etc...). Finally, you need to restore the natural barrier of the skin to protect it from further irritation. Our Ultra Rich Balm (£19) reduces redness and itching while it heals.
