Skincare Helpers from Hope's Relief for Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis
The arrival of Spring can trigger flare-ups for those who suffer from inflammatory dry skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis, but help is on hand from the natural brand, Hope's Relief.

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you'll probably already know that I've had eczema since I was a child and it's been an upward battle trying to find products that help with flare-ups which aren't loaded with steroids and petroleum. Thankfully, I've been fortunate enough to be able to have tried and tested numerous products over the years, and through a lot of this trial and error, I've discovered that my skin reacts a lot better to more soothing and natural formulas, than it ever did to the steroids-heavy prescription creams that my GP would give me. 

One brand that I've often recommended to fellow eczema sufferers who are looking for a natural alternative is Hope's Relief, and during a recent flare-up due to the change of season (and probably some exam related stress!), I've been able to put these two products below through their paces.

Skincare Helpers from Hope's Relief for Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis
Hope's Relief Topical Moisturising Spray* (90ml, £15.95, link)
This multi-purpose topical spray offers fast-acting relief for those times when your skin is feeling horribly dry and itchy, and is ideal for anyone who has generally sensitised/irritated skin, as well as those who are prone to Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis. The formula is made from 98.5% natural ingredients and includes Calendula, Aloe Vera, Tea Tree and Borage Oils, to quickly cool, soothe and calm itchy, irritated skin in a matter of minutes. 

Free from steroids, fragrances, SLS, parabens, paraffin, lanolin and petrochemicals, I've found this spray very easy to use, especially on larger surface areas as a light spritz is all you need to cover it, so it would be great for babies and young children who won't let you put creams on them. You can use them anywhere on the body, but I'd recommend spraying it onto a cotton pad first if you want to use it on your face, so that you don't get any in or around your eyes.

Hope's Relief Itchy Flaky Scalp Soothing Conditioner* (200ml, £16.99, link)
It can be easy to forget about the skin on your scalp, and many people who have eczema also experience sensitivities and dryness on their scalps which can lead to unbearable itchiness. I always suggest cutting out SLS in your haircare to see if that helps first, but if you're looking for an additional specialised product, this Itchy Flaky Scalp Soothing Conditioner can certainly lend a helping hand! Virtually everyone can use this (including babies as a treatment for Cradle Cap) and it's highly suitable for those who have Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, Seborrheic Dermatitis and Dandruff problems. 

Being fragrance-free, pH balanced and hypoallergenic, it's a very gentle but effective formula which contains hospital grade Organic Manuka Honey UMF 10+, Gotu Kola, Aloe Vera and Calendula, to soothe the scalp and condition the hair. To use it after shampooing, I simply massage a generous amount into my scalp, leave it to do its magic for a couple of minutes and then rinse it out. Afterwards, my scalp feels much happier and less tight and dry, with the 'no itchy' feeling lasting usually until my next wash (so a few days for me as I only wash my hair twice a week). If you have very dry hair (lengths and ends), you may want to keep it just as a scalp conditioner/treatment as I prefer a much more heavy duty conditioner and this is definitely a lighter conditioning option, but I imagine it would be ideal to use if you wash your hair every day.

Hope's Relief products are available online from LoveLula.com
