Looking for a natural, intensive cream for use on dry, itchy skin that’s suitable for all the family? We’ve got just the thing. Soothe Operator!

When it comes to problematic skin (no matter what your age), finding the right intensive cream, and then incorporating a good skincare regime into your daily routine, can prevent certain conditions developing and can even reduce steroid use in those with eczema-prone skin.

Some of us are more susceptible to developing conditions than others due to a lack of filaggrin in our skin. The word filaggrin comes from filament aggregating protein – it’s a barrier protein and works like a layer of cling film for the skin. Without this important layer, skin becomes leaky and protection is lost. So how can you help leaky skin to build and/or restore this protective barrier? With a natural, quality emollient (which is a non-cosmetic moisturiser) you can reduce thenumber of eczema flares, and stop irritants and allergens, which can trigger eczema flares. Also, the correct use of emollients can reduce the need for topical corticosteroids.

Know your ingredients: What do you need to look out for when choosing an emollient? Avoid known irritants and choose as natural a product as possible. You can do this by checking for SLS – Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – plus nut and petroleum-based ingredients, which can irritate the skin further.

DID YOU KNOW? Applying an emollient to a child’s skin every day in the first year of their life can reduce their chance of developing eczema by up to 50%!

It’s all in the application: Once you’ve found the perfect intensive cream, it’s time to use it correctly. Develop a routine that suits your skin type and condition, and prioritise it as part of your daily skincare regime. Do this with regular application, and invest in a quality, natural emollient, like Suvex Soothe, to prevent conditions developing.
