Sensitive skin runs in my family. I always had to be careful to ensure my hands, elbows, and knees at minimum didn’t get too dry or exposed to anything in particular and become irritated. Now that I have children, we have to manage sensitive skin among some, and mild eczema among others. It’s challenging. There are very few brands we’ve found that offer a complete solution. But AVEENO® is one of the best.
Did you know October is National Eczema Awareness Month? Over 30 million people in the US alone live with eczema. That’s a lot of irritated, itchy skin.
I remember being really itchy a lot of my childhood, and the dry, bumpy skin that caused so much havoc. It’s no fun. Seeing this on my children and seeing their little faces wrinkle up as they rub at something they don’t understand–making it worse–is not something we relish as parents.
We’ve tried many remedies, herbal and non, and there are only a handful of things that even make a dent in the irritation. Proper hygiene/washing skills help also. But there’s only so much you can do with little kids to help them manage it by themselves.
When we found AVEENO® Eczema Therapy and AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy, we didn’t even know there was such a thing as a targeted, hypoallergenic product that could calm our littles’ sensitive skin symptoms enough to let them simply live normal life. This gives them the ability to play and explore without constant itching and discomfort–and it makes us very happy parents.
We love that these products don’t have unneeded chemicals. And one of the main ingredients is colloidal oatmeal, which we’ve experienced before and know how powerfully wonderful it can be. It’s actually clinically shown to help soothe the four symptoms of eczema – itch, roughness, dryness, irritation.
Furthermore, AVEENO® Eczema Therapy and AVEENO® Baby Eczema Therapy products have gentle (yet very effective!) formulas that are fragrance-free, steroid-free, and hypoallergenic. So you can seriously stop irritated, sensitive skin in its tracks.
When we find something that really works, we want to share it with as many people as we can, to help as many others as we can who may be suffering from the same problems we used to be. We hope you feel the same after experiencing AVEENO® Eczema Therapy. These products have all but eliminated our struggle with the symptoms of both sensitive skin and eczema, and we’re confident they will for you, too.
