Dry & Dehydrated Skin? Here Are Three Things To Try

My eczema and dry skin is no secret around here, so this post will come as no surprise for many. However, if you've stumbled across this post as you are a looking for product recommendations for your dry or dehydrated skin, welcome! I've been testing and trying out products for many years now and whenever I find something that may help fellow dry skin sufferers, I pop it in a blog post or on Instagram.

Today's post is no different. Over the past few months I've had quite a few episodes of dry skin (probably due to my pregnancy and the hormones) and have tried out a few products that may be helpful for your skin concerns. Some of these products have worked for me successfully and some, not so successful, but I still wanted to share them in case they are suitable for your particular skin type.

Epaderm Cream

I've been using Epaderm on the eczema I have on my face, neck and arms on and off for the past year and every time I use it, I see results within a week or so! The eczema that I get tends to be stress-related so it flares up every now and then but when it comes back, it sure does come back with a vengeance. 

This particular cream is an emollient, doctor recommended, helps dry skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis and is suitable for all ages (including babies!) It's also fragrance, colouring and SLS free - which is great. It's affordable and available to purchase via Boots, so you don't have to go searching high and low!


Recently, Epimax* kindly gifted me a bunch of their products from their targeted skincare range. What drew me to their products was that they are free from fragrances, SLS, parabens and lanolin too. Rather than using these as a cream or treatment on top of dry patches, I prefer using this as a moisturiser before I go into the shower and in the shower as a moisturiser to avoid my skin drying out. Their products are affordable too and can be used on all ages.

MooGoo Natural Sensitive Skin Balm

I've heard a lot about MooGoo lately and was curious to try the brand as so many other eczema sufferers enjoy using their products! Their products are formulated with natural ingredients for those who suffer with eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions. I was sent the Sensitive Skin Balm* to try, which is used on my arms as I have a few patches there.

I really like the ethos of the brand and the way the ingredients are formulated but unfortunately this didn't work for me as well as I thought it could've. However, saying that, it could work for you! I did try this during pregnancy so it could have been hormones that impacted the results.
