I dislike winter for a variety of reasons and one reason toward the top of that list is my skin. I have terrible eczema and it gets so bad in the winter time that it can actually be painful. So, when I was given the opportunity to receive samples of Lowila Care Cleansing Bar, which is a dermatologist recommended, soap free cleanser that helps relieve dry, irritated skin and LAC-HYDRIN® FIVE Moisturizing Lotion, a non-greasy, alpha-hydroxy-acid lotion formula that has been clinically proven to relieve the dryness and scaliness associated with dry skin, my skin screamed, "yes, please"
A few facts on eczema that might be of interest:
· Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is a chronic disease that affects males and females at the same rate.
· 10-20% of infants and children experience symptoms of the disease and, of those, 60% continue to experience symptoms well into adulthood
Review: I use prescription cream for my eczema, but I really don't like it because it only works some of the time and it is thick and difficult to apply. The Lac-Hydrin Five Moisturizing Lotion, on the other hand, not only worked much better than my prescription cream but it was really easy to apply and provided instant relief from itching and burning. After just two days of use, my patches of eczema were completely cleared up. I could not believe it! This is, by far, the BEST lotion I have found to treat my eczema while keeping my skin hydrated and smooth. I really wish I would have had the foresight to take before and after pictures of my arms because the results were truly dramatic.
The Lowila Care Cleansing Bar is great as well. When my eczema has been really bad, I have been only able to wash with water in those areas because even gentle soap can cause excruciating burning and an even worse flare up. I was very pleased with the Lowila Bar. My skin felt clean and it did not agitate my condition at all.
Between these two products, I feel like I can proceed with my life without having eczema interfere. Just don't expect me to start liking winter!
