3-Step Skin Soothing Routine
Skin problems are never fun, but we try to keep it as simple as possible!
When it comes to skin problems, it's so important to ensure what you are putting on your skin is going to nourish, protect and soothe it. Many of our products were designed to work together, and therefore we recommend they’re used together to get the best results.
For those that are affected by Eczema, it is very important to maintain the skin barrier function so that irritants are less likely to trigger a reaction. This is how we do it:
1. Cleanse with Milk Wash – We combine small amounts of 5 different natural cleansers as this can be gentler on the skin than one concentrated cleanser. We chose natural cleansers that wash well without drying out the skin like ones that contain SLS can do. We also use a mix of natural skin conditioning ingredients. Because it’s so gentle it’s also a no-tears formulation in children's eyes. If you are a car mechanic, you may need something a bit stronger, but if you wish to stay clean without stripping the skin of oils, we think this formula is the bee’s knees.
2. Soothe with Irritable Skin Balm - This can be used on affected areas whenever the skin is itchy. Specifically formulated for the symptomatic relief of Eczema using skin-soothing, ingredients such as Canetlle Asiatica, German Chamomile and Aloe Extract. Natural oils like Sweet Almond and Olive Oil also help improve skin barrier function which is important for eczema-prone skin. (AustL 196718) - Always read the label, use only as directed.
3. Hydrate with Soothing MSM Cream – Moisturise with a nourishing cream to ensure the skin maintains its moist skin barrier function. This one is packed with MSM (organic sulphur) which is a natural skin soothing compound. Just mention MSM and watch the Naturopaths go nuts! This one is also loaded with other skin-loving ingredients such as Sweet Almond Oil (high in the type of fatty acids skin needs) Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera and Honey all help to calm troubled skin.
All three of these are available online as a bundle in our Skin Soothing Pack. Get soothed and s-MOO-th!
