Healthy Skin with Cetraben
Choosing the right moisturiser - Everyone’s eczema is different and personal to them, that is why picking the right moisturisers to help hydrate your skin is essential and can help you manage the symptoms of your condition quicker. If you have eczema-prone skin, finding which product is right for you can be challenging, but that’s where speaking to your pharmacist will help guide you in making the right decision. As a rule of thumb, lotions tend to be lighter and used for covering larger areas of eczema-prone skin. Ointments tend to be a thicker consistency and are best used before you go to bed, so the product has time to soak in. Creams are for everyday use and can be used directly onto the problem but also more frequently to keep the skin hydrated and nourished throughout the day.
Keeping Hydrated - Everyday skin loses water and loosing too much can lead to dehydrated skin, which can cause irritation and conditions like eczema. Everyday habits and environments can help fast-track water loss, such as air conditioning, the weather, and not drinking enough water. Hot showers can also contribute to dry skin, but a product like Cetraben Cleansing Cream is a soap substitute so not only will it keep you clean but hydrate your skin while in the shower. It is always recommended to use a moisturiser throughout the day, not just on flare-ups – this will help manage any on-going reoccurrence of dry skin.
Your skincare routine - Making sure you follow a simple skincare routine every day will help keep your skin hydrated and rid of irritants. It will also help ensure you can get on with your day without the stress and worry that eczema-prone skin can bring. As a first step, use a skin diary to keep on top of any flare-ups – this will help you isolate your eczema triggers and help you manage them better. Trying to establish a good skincare routine on top of everything else can be challenging, so set yourself a reminder so that you do not forget. And most importantly use a moisturiser that hydrates your skin frequently during the day, not just when flare-ups occur. You can find multiple products to help you throughout the day, such as Cetraben Cream which comes in a pocket-size 50ml, and Cetraben Ointment which can be used before bed.
How to use Cetraben Natural Oatmeal Cream?
- Apply to the skin as often as required or directed by your pharmacist or GP, to ensure continued hydration throughout the day. We recommend that you treat your skin as frequently as possible, or as a minimum at least twice a day.
- Apply liberally to the affected skin, as often as you feel the need to, ensuring that the area is well covered.
- Apply gently in the direction of hair growth until absorbed.
- Avoid rubbing the cream vigorously as this could trigger itching, creating more heat in the skin.
- Apply your emollient before and after you bathe to protect your skin from dryness.
