Eczema is a common inflammatory skin condition which is characterized by dryness, flaking, blistering, crusting, swelling, and cracking of the skin. Eczema is typically caused by factors such as skin over-sensitivity, allergies, stress, and genetic factors. Those with asthma are more likely to develop eczema. Typically eczema is treated with a topical corticosteroid cream. Eczema skin types that are prone to infections will often be treated by a mild course of antibiotics. Antihistamines (topical and oral) may often be prescribed for the treatment of eczema as well. Antihistamines reduce swelling thus reducing the irritation and itchiness associated with eczema-prone skin. Eczema can be frustrating and embarrassing, and the doctor route can get costly and is quite unpleasant (why take antibiotics and slather on smelly prescription cream when most eczema outbreaks can be treated by appropriate over the counter products) Here are some great product choices that will help to treat, calm, and prevent eczema outbreaks:
Avene Professional Trixera Plus Selectiose Emollient Cleansing Gel effectively combats the 4 symptoms of very dry, atopic skin while cleansing, soothing and protecting the skin.
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water contains healing properties which help to restore the skin’s barrier while providing antioxidant benefits and removing traces of hard water (which contain heavy minerals that are irritating to the skin). The Thermal Spring Water can be spritzed on throughout the day when your skin craves moisture or feels dry and irritated. The fine mist will not disturb your make up but will make your skin look fresh and hydrated.
Skin prone to eczema can often feel taut and dry no matter how much moisturizer is slathered on. We recommend therapeutic moisturizers with skin-building properties that not only hydrate the skin but also strengthen the skin’s barrier. ATOPALM Intensive Moisturizing Cream is a great choice as it helps to restore the skin’s barrier function while soothing and hydrating. If your skin is extremely dry, try using a balm like the Osmotics Cream Extreme Barrier Repair, it looks like butter in the jar, but emulsifies into a fine balm once you warm it up in the palm of your hand. This product will last and last, and a tiny bit goes a long way to restore your skin’s compromised barrier.
Get rid of dead, flaky skin by exfoliating regularly with a non-irritating enzyme mask. Enzymes eat dead skin cells without compromising your skin’s barrier. The Tracie Martyn Enzyme Exfoliant is a great choice as it contains enzymes as well as skin brighteners and gently resurfaces the skin without irritating.
If you experience eczema break-outs on your body, we recommend using La Roche Posay body products to address your concerns. The La Roche Posay Lipikar Syndet is an outstanding non-drying foaming body wash that cleanses without irritation and neutralizes drying effects of hard water. The La Roche Posay Lipikar Balm AP is a rich hydrator that soothes the skin while providing dry-skin relief and hydration to last all day.
I hope these suggestions help! While eczema can not be cured you can often easily control it with soothing over-the-counter skin care products. And as always, if your skin condition worsens or becomes intolerant to over-the-counter products, consult your doctor for other treatment alternatives.

With New Years Eve quickly approaching many of us have beauty resolutions at the top of our list. Look years younger without going under the knife! Micro-current devices are a great option for anyone looking to firm and tone their skin. This technology is designed to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate skin, including skin damaged by sunburn, acne, stretch marks, cellulite and scarring. When used on the face, the treatments have become known as a “non-surgical facelift.” Micro-current mimics the body’s own bio-electric current and works by passing low frequency, direct current through muscle tissue to stimulate the muscle fibers. At home micro-current tools are a very effective option and growing in popularity.
Our most popular micro-current device NuFace Trinity delivers unparalleled professional results in an easy to use at-home system. The NuFace Trinity is newly updated with an ergonomic design to deliver an amazing user experience. With the addition of interchangeable Infrared light treatment heads for added functionality, the NuFace Trinity makes it easy to achieve results in as little as 5 minutes a day.
Another customer favorite is the WrinkleMD Eye HA Deep Infusion System. This groundbreaking tool uses a Hyaluronic filler system with gentle micro-current to deliver Hyaluronic Acid — the wrinkle-filler injected by dermatologists — and peptides by infusing them into the layers of your skin, deeper than creams or serums can reach. Each 40-minute treatment targets wrinkles with an intensive boost of Hyaluronic Acid. Visible results are immediate and continue to improve with as little as one treatment per week. All you will feel is a gentle, euphoric tingle and all you see is beautiful, younger-looking skin!
