I am the lotion queen. I have it everywhere--my bathroom, the kitchen, my purse, each car, in my nightstand drawer, and any other place I think I might need it. My skin is really dry, and I have to use lotion on a regular basis to prevent it from getting peeling and cracking.
I'm always willing to try something that might make a difference, so when I had a chance to try NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™, I jumped at it. Neosporin has created a line of skin care products designed for people with eczema and dry skin, including a Daily Moisturizing Cream, Daily Body Wash, and Anti-Itch Cream. I was also excited to try them because Neosporin is a brand I've used and trusted for a long time, and I've loved their other products.
Dry skin and eczema can really be uncomfortable, and I know that it affects 10-20% of children, and 1-3% of adults--a total of 35 million people. Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that's characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash. Common triggers can be irritants like soaps & fragrances, wool, rough textures, cold and dry weather, heat and sweating.
It's winter time, and that's a prime time for dry skin and eczema flare ups. Some tips that might help are: keeping skin warm and proteceted when outside, using a thick protective moisturizer on the exposed skin to prevent windburn, and considering a humidifier for use in bedrooms. NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ is a skincare solution for eczema and dry skin, and includes three different products.
The Daily Moisturizing Cream is fragrance free, soap free, doesn't contain antibiotics, and is safe to use for the whole family. It goes beyond ordinary daily lotions to relieve dryness, itch and irritation due to eczema and dry skin, while also helping to strengthen and restore the skin's natural barrier function. It's clinically show to restore visibly healthy skin in 3 days!
The other two products that are a part of NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ are an Hyrdrocortizone Anti-Itch Cream, and a Daily Body Wash. The Anti-Itch Cream contains hydrocortizone, and a dual-action formula to provide fast relief of itch flare-ups to eczema. The Daily Body Wash is proven gentle and non-irritating even on eczema-prone skin, is fragrance free and soap free, and is safe for the whole family.
Like I mentioned earlier, I do suffer from chronic dry skin, and I was able to use these products and try them out for myself. The lotion is wonderful, and I especially love that it's fragrance free. Since I'm pregnant, I'm really sensitive to smells, and there are many lotions I've had to stop using because I can't handle the fragrance. It's thick and rich, but not greasy, which is also my requirements for a really good lotion! The body wash is perfect for using all the time, or just for those times when you're experiencing dry skin, or a bout of eczema. I haven't needed the anti-itch cream yet to give you my experience, but I'm glad I have it on hand for when I do. Winter can be so harsh, and these products will definitely be on hand at our house for me, and my whole family!
