Do you have dry skin? I tried this product line and it works wonders for dry skin and eczema.
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO® Eczema Therapy. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
My skin is super dry. Scaly, ashy, dry.
My kids have dry skin just like me. My daughter used to have severely dry, chapped skin during her first winter when she was a baby.
Even though she is 5 now, I use gentle products, made for babies, on her skin. My 12 year old son is battling his own preteen skin problems on his face, but we still buy products to deeply moisturize the rest of his skin.
Both get eczema on their stomachs and get dry patches, seasonally.
Here are some of the ways we manage dry skin and eczema.
*Bathe and shower in warm, not hot, water.
*Wash with a moisturizing soap.
*Moisturize damp skin.
*Exfoliate dead skin.
*Take oatmeal baths when we have severe flare-ups.
*Seal in moisture.
Usually when I apply lotion, after a few minutes it disappears. Then, my skin becomes scaly as my clothing runs against my skin.
This week, I tried AVEENO®’s Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream. After showering, while my skin was still moist, I applied the lotion.
I noticed an immediate difference after using AVEENO®. My skin was moisturized as soon as I applied the lotion. This moisture lasted longer than 24 hours. The lotion felt emollient, not greasy, not thin. I was shocked at how long it lasted.

My family is part of more than 30 million people in the U.S. living with eczema. National Eczema Awareness Month (October) helps spotlight the realities of the condition.
The discomfort, itchiness and dry skin can be a daily struggle and often interferes with our everyday life. Since there is no cure for eczema, it’s important to follow a proper regimen, so symptoms can be managed.
