Got Eczema? Get Hope’s Relief
An estimated 15 million people in the UK could be living with eczema, including 1.7 million school children. This common skin condition often occurs in infants but can also strike in older children and adults. And the sad irony is that while eczema can be triggered by irritants and allergens, it can also be a gateway for allergic sensitisation, meaning that skin creams, lotions, body washes and soaps may compound the problem.
Hope’s Relief is an Australian company that aims to help the millions of people suffering from eczema worldwide. Their goal is to create skincare products using natural ingredients that make a positive difference to people’s lives. This natural skincare range can be used on sensitive skin and does not irritate or inflame skin.
Hope’s Relief Eczema Cream
Hope’s Relief Premium Eczema Cream was formulated to help people with dry skin conditions such as mild to moderate eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. It is suitable for infants, children, and adults, and can soothe irritated skin. It’s also great for looking after healthy skin, to keep skin in good condition and help prevent moisture loss and the potential for sensitisation.
Indeed, Allergy UK recommends that even when eczema appears under control, it’s a good idea to continue using emollients to replace moisture in already dry skin and reduce the risk of eczema flares. Proper moisture in the skin is key to maintaining an effective skin barrier as it’s when this barrier breaks down that allergy can occur when skin is exposed to irritants and allergens.
A growing product range for sensitive skin
Hope’s Relief also offers a nutritional range to soothe and hydrate itchy, dry skin and scalps, and is suitable for all ages. Their Body Wash, Soap-Free Cleansing Bar, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter & Goat’s Milk Soap are all gentle formulations designed to clear dirt and germs without stripping the skin of moisture. And, as you’d expect, these products contain no nasty irritants.
For skin that needs a little extra TLC, Hope’s Relief Moisturising Lotion is the ultimate in natural hydration. Formulated with mango, shea and cocoa butters, this lotion nourishes skin to leave it looking and feeling happy and healthy.
If scalp eczema or skin irritation has you scrambling for a sensitive skin shampoo, look to Hope’s Relief shampoo and condition. These are designed with itchy, flaky scalps in mind and are made with medical grade manuka honey NPA10+.
Who’s behind Hope’s Relief?
With Hope’s Relief you can be confident the products work. Why? Because the founders, Malcolm and Julie Lynch, know a thing or two about living with eczema. As a child, Malcolm suffered constant eczema, despite his parents’ best efforts to ease his pain and discomfort. And for Julie, the journey began with the desire to use natural products that helped support her baby daughter’s healthy skin.
The couple’s passion is “solving skin problems,” including eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. They love hearing from customers who have finally found comfort from Hope’s Relief products and continue to develop new products to help ease eczema for more families.
One great example of this is Hope’s Relief Topical Spray designed to relieve dry, itchy skin.
Is your face mask causing skin irritation? Try Hope’s Relief
Perfect for ‘maskzema’ – the skin symptoms related to prolonged use of a face mask – Hope’s Relief Topical Spray can soothe dry, cracked, scaly skin, rashes and redness, inflammation, irritation, and scaling around the nose and mouth. It also helps calm pimples and pustules, perioral dermatitis, and contact eczema (dermatitis).
While face masks are important to help protect the wearer and others from airborne pathogens, they can also create conditions for skin irritation, including increased heat and moisture as well as contact irritation. Masks can also trap bacteria close to the skin and can upset the natural balance of microflora on the skin’s surface. Mask acne was a common complaint in the early days of mask-wearing in the UK, but more dermatologists are now seeing eczema or dermatitis from prolonged mask use, especially in the area around the mouth (perioral). This is characterised by a red, scaly rash with mild itching and burning, red bumps, and irritation.
Hope’s Relief Spray helps soothe symptoms associated with prolonged mask use and is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing. It’s also easy to apply – just spray on your lower face before, after, or even under your mask. After all, it’s touch-free! This formula contains tea tree oil, calendula, chamomile, evening primrose, and lavender oil, as well as aloe vera, borage oil, vitamin E, and vitamin B5 in a glycerin base for fast acting relief of MaskZema symptoms.
