Simple routine but it has worked for me!

Hi, I'm Claire and I have suffered with Atopic Eczema since I was 10 months old.

I wont bore you with a life time of creams, lotions and potions but I have probably experienced them all. The most effective daily routine for me is to drink copious amounts of water and use lotion that sinks into the skin.

Greasy ointments and creams that sit on top of the skin, drive me mad and will make me itch - so personally, I stay away from those. I accept we are all different and different creams will suit different skins, so on that front, its trial and error.

People compliment me on my skin now; its clear and its soft and now you wouldn't think I suffered with chronic eczema.

I will never be cured; so from time to time, I will have a small flare up but that's probably down to me being a bit complacent and not drinking enough water or not moisturizing efficiently - in the winter I step it up a little bit more because of all the central heating and dry atmosphere.

This simple routine has really worked for me - I really hope that by sharing this post, it will help lots of sufferers.

Best wishes to you all and take care.
