Moisturiser key to treating skin conditions

Moisturiser key to treating skin conditions
Summer can cause skin problems to flare up but there are ways of combating the likes of eczema and psoriasis using natural body care products.

Dr Miriam Stoppard, writing in her column for the Mirror, recommended that eczema sufferers moisturise between four and six times a day, even when they don't have symptoms.

She suggested using non-perfumed moisturisers which should be gently smoothed onto the skin rather than rubbed in.

People with psoriasis need to use a rich moisturiser, again one which is non-perfumed, as the condition is characterised by dry, flaky skin which needs to be kept hydrated.

Dr Stoppard advised getting some sun exposure as this can slow down the turnover of skin cells, reducing flakiness. You always need to use sun protection though.

There are formulas available which are specifically recommended for sufferers of eczema and psoriasis, like natural body care products from Logona.

The company's Free Moisture Cream is non-perfumed safe for both dry and sensitive skin.
