I love the winter. The air is crisp allowing you to breathe. The snow begins to fall. The lights twinkle as the holiday season approaches. What I don’t like is dry skin. Itchy. Irritable. Scratch all day long — dry skin. It’s annoying and it causes my youngest to often get a flare up with his eczema. When he was a baby it was awful. I tried so many different products, but nothing worked.
Aveeno Eczema Care Nighttime Balm and the existing Baby Eczema Care line, as well as the Daily Care line was created and it now allows us to ditch the itch as winter comes.
Eczema Awareness With Aveeno
Eczema is not fun to deal with. My son gets it really bad under his arms on his elbows and along his arms. Whether the sufferer is a baby or a grown adult, eczema can be dealt with quick and easy. The cause of eczema is when moisture in the air causes the skin to dry. This combination makes the skin extremely itchy so bad you scratch. But scratching further damages the skin and often causes flare ups to become worse.
November is Eczema Awareness Month, and Aveeno has always been a brand we trust as they take care creating products that help the skin. So I knew right away Baby Eczema Care Nighttime Balm would work wonders for my son. The balm has natural oats in it, which works wonders for dry, itchy skin without leaving a greasy feel. My son has sensory disorder, so anything that feels too greasy causes him to freak out. But not this. It’s fragrance-free and hypoallergenic which is perfect for his sensitivity to most products and easy enough to use daily.
As a parent I know all too well how difficult it is to find a treatment to help ease the “itchies” as my son calls them. From the time he was born, it was horrible trying so many different treatments with nothing working. Aveeno Baby Eczema Care Nighttime Balm is the first ever nighttime balm specifically formulated with natural ingredients to help babies have restful sleeps.
Using Aveeno Baby Eczema Care Nighttime Balm will not only take away the itch from first use, but that after three nights should improve the skin back to a healthier state. My son isn’t a little baby anymore, but we used it for three nights to see if there would be an improvement in his skin. The best part is the jar is huge and you don’t use very much.
I couldn’t believe that after three nights of use, my son’s skin actually cleared right up. The redness and swelling went down and he wasn’t itchy to the point of scratching until he makes himself bleed.
I used Baby Eczema Therapy Nighttime Balm after giving my son a bath each night. I combined this with Aveeno Baby Eczema Care Wash gentle and tear-free with Oatmeal you can use in your bath to help soothe and naturally cleanse without the use of dry soaps which often just irritate his skin.
My son is so happy now. He calls Aveeno Baby Eczema Care his magic cream and actually asks me to put it on to make his itchy skin better. As a mom dealing with his sensory disorder I jumped for joy! No more tears. No more scratching. My son is now able to go to sleep without feeling as though his skin is crawling. No more pain thanks to Aveeno.
Both my husband and I suffer from extremely dry skin. Aveeno takes that seriously and so they have gone and created an adult balm so that the whole family can be itch free. They sent along the entire Aveeno Active Naturals Line.
The new Aveeno Eczema Care Ant-Itch Balm has the same active naturals colloidal oatmeal and ceramides in it that the baby stuff has to help strengthen the skin’s natural form and improve dryness. I think it’s wonderful and now I’m using each and every night.
Last but not least Aveeno treated me to a beautifully illustrated book from creator Penelope Harper called The Dry-ventures of Ellie and Eddie Bye Bye Dry Skin! A great book for children teaching them about why their skin is dry and how Aveeno can help get rid of the itchies. And a gorgeous handmade dream catcher from Indica Design to signify itchy-free skin and cared for skin leads to sleepy sweet dreams.
