6 tips for living with eczema: from identifying causes to skin care
Eczema is a medical condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked. It mostly affects children, but can affect adults too – more than six million people in the UK suffer from it. So what can you do to improve your condition?
In recognition of National Eczema Week, we spoke to Amy Gordinier-Regan, CEO of Skinfix, a natural and dermatologist skincare brand – whose daughter has eczema – to find out.
“Imagine being physically uncomfortable in your skin. Not being able to sleep at night because you can’t relieve your itchy skin or not wearing a t-shirt because you have a flare-up on your arm. For the six million eczema suffers in the UK, this is a reality and something they struggle with daily. Eczema’s red, itchy skin patches can appear at any time and trying to soothe red, flaky and itchy skin is difficult for both adults and babies. This chronic skin condition is now in the spotlight with the ground breaking British series “Criminal Justice” and in the US spin-off “The Night Off” which can be seen on Sky Atlantic Thursdays at 9pm. The lawyer in both shows suffers from eczema and they show the extremes he goes to as he tries to manage this condition.
