I hope you’re well and have a great weekend planned!
Today is a post inspired by my son and a very irritated patch of eczema on his right ankle……..
When Arthur was a few months old he had a patch of skin on his ankle that was red, crusty & sore. He didn’t have any other patches of skin that looked like eczema anywhere else on his body. We tried all kinds of things in vain and nothing really worked until we tried a particular cream that did work. That was that and his skin was clear for around another 18 months.
Dairy & Eczema
A few months ago he developed the sore patch again, which I might add, we struggle to clear it and heal it because he rubs it vigorously on the carpet and it makes it sore and the skin breaks open again. He also developed other random patches of eczema, mainly on his legs. I believe dairy to be the cause, a common contributor to such conditions and noticeably worse post Easter from the extra chocolate! So we switched him over to goats milk the same as his sister. Goats milk was a little miracle with my daughter. She too suffered with eczema and switching over to goats milk helped her tremendously. The protein in goats milk is much easier for our body to digest and there are literally thousands of stories out there about how switching cows milk for goats milk cleared eczema or dramatically improved it!
The switch really helped a lot, but still with that habit of scrubbing the ankle on the carpet it kept causing the skin to be broken, and there are many creams out there that you can’t apply to broken skin. I’m also very conscious of what I want to put on my children’s skin. I don’t use chemical laded products or bubble baths….my poor children rarely get to experience a bubble bath…..just on the very odd occasion because I know it’s fun for them! I use the Rhassoul Clay Cleansing Bar to wash them because I know it’s only made from pure natural ingredients.
So the other day whilst feeling a little frustrated as it looked worse again, I grabbed my Volu-Lift Cream and rubbed that into the skin. I just had a hunch that this was going to heal the skin…..I’m just a tad annoyed I waited that long to try it and was trying to use other products first! Packed with amazing soothing & healing ingredients, and no chemical nasties, I didn’t hesitate applying it even though the skin was broken in places. To get to the point, the skin was dramatically improved in a matter of 2 days. Almost clear until I caught him rubbing it on the carpet again..grrrr! I have persisted though and again it is healing and so much softer and clear.
Now this is what Volu-Lift can do on skin that needs some serious TLC. Obviously in terms of anti-ageing it does so much with antioxidants and the Hexapeptide – Adifyline, that helps to lift the skin and redefine the facial contours.
Here’s a little rundown of the ingredients and what they do for the skin:
Ceramide Complex: The Ceramides attract and lock in moisture
Hyaluronic Acid: Attracts & binds water to the skin, leaving skin super-hydrated & soft
Aloe Leaf Juice: Antibacterial. Soothing & healing
Resveratrol: Super Antioxidant! Fighting free radical damage
Oat Beta Glucan: Healing, calming. Stimulates collagen production & forms a protective film over the skin
Other amazing goodies:
Mango Seed Oil
Sweet Almond Oil
Sunflower Seed Oil
Grape Seed Oil
Volu-Lift is a gorgeous lightweight cream that is silky smooth and elegant. It really does feel amazing on the skin and leaves your skin feeling so hydrated and smooth, whilst helping towards your skin’s optimum health and a more youthful appearance.
And of course if you do suffer with patches of irritation, redness or anything like that, this cream could well be your skin-saviour.
I only wish I had taken pictures of how much it has improved Arthur’s skin!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
