I’m sharing this story in my life as part of a Curél sponsored series for Socialstars™. The opinions presented are entirely my own.
Do you suffer from eczema? Well, I don’t but allow me to introduce you to one of my little boy’s, Noah. Noah suffers from eczema and it’s been a battle since he was an infant.
This has gone on for years and his eczema is a painful and constant battle for him and us, as parents. As a parent, you wonder if you are doing everything you can to help resolve the situation. For the child? They often feel helpless. I don’t know about you but the absolute worst thing for me is to itch. I can tolerate a lot of nuances and pain but itching is NOT one of them. I’ve seen Noah itch himself until he bleeds and I’ve even seen him itching in his sleep! How’s that for making a parent feel sad and guilty?
Eczema is a chronic problem for many people and it’s estimated to affect 35 million Americans (10-20% of those affected are children). Sometimes children grow out of it and sometimes they don’t. Whatever the case, we are dealing in the present and our goal is to prevent the itchy, rashy, scaly skin from developing on Noah in the first place. Once the cycle begins, it’s very difficult to get it under control and get Noah feeling comfortable again.
Introducing Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer!
We were advised to apply a topical prescription steroid cream twice a day over the areas that were affected by Noah’s eczema. Sure, that seemed to help but it’s not exactly the ideal way to control the issue and I always wondered about safety. I was beyond thrilled with the announcement of the new Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer . The best way I’ve been able to control Noah’s eczema is by applying a moisturizer immediately when he gets out of the shower or tub. Of course, they get all creamy and make a mess but it was the best defense I had. Slathering on a moisturizer while Noah’s skin was still wet made an immense difference in the eczema episodes and reduced the need to apply topical steroids. FINALLY, there’s a product that is actually formulated to be put on the skin while it is still wet.
Of course, we have switched over to the Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer and have been using it for just over two weeks. It has made a huge difference with Noah’s skin. I have not used a topical steroid on him once in the two weeks since we started using the product. His skin is ultra soft and moisturized. He knows it too and it’s the only reason he agreed to pose for you! He realizes I’m using something different and he absolutely loves the way it is making his skin feel. He has no rough or scaly patches (we call it alligator skin) and he’s not itchy. The Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer is activated by water and penetrates deep into the skin to heal dryness. We were advised to apply moisturizer by our dermatologist while the skin was still wet because cells expand after showering or bathing. Moisturizers can be more effective that way. Curel caught onto that concept and their product applies nice and silky and doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy or sticky. There’s no mess!
We apply the Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer product in the morning and at night after bathing and we have one very happy little boy! I’m now using the product as well and we will post a follow up in a few weeks and let you know how we are doing. So far, the past couple weeks have been great and we are thrilled with this new product from Curel.
Do you suffer from eczema or extremely dry skin and have you tried this new product yet from Curel? You should definitely grab a bottle because it’s certainly making a difference for us!
