rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.


As winter sets in it’s time to think about how much more our skin dries out and for those with eczema it is particulary important to moisturise regularly and correctly.

Make sure you use a moisturiser that suits your skin.

More importantly, apply your moisturiser regularly to the skin with downward strokes in the same direction as the hair growth. If you apply with up and down strokes you will irritate the hair follicles which may cause itching and irritation.
