Do you want to say goodbye to itchy stretchmarks for good and never suffer again from the “ashy-elbow” syndrome? Dry, itchy skin as a result of having eczema is bothersome, but taking off your jacket and revealing ashy elbows is just plain embarrassing. If you’ve been treating this skin condition with petroleum jelly or cocoa butter and you aren’t getting the relief you need, then check out these two skin healing creams that may bring some long overdue comfort to your skin.
There’s a lovely website called saffronrouge.com which sells nothing but organic beauty products where you can buy Butter Cream Healing Salve, by Suki ($24.95). This salve hydrates your skin, heals your discomfort if you have a sunburn, stretch marks, eczema or insect bites. Some of the ingredients are organic lavender and chamomile to soothe irritation and organic comfry to relieve eczema. If you like the smell of lavender, then you’ll love rubbing this salve all over your entire body to get silky, supple skin like ‘Shameless’ actress Shanola Hampton.
First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream Intense Therapy ($28, firstaidbeauty.com) is a super-thick, emollient cream that penetrates deep into your skin to really hydrate not only your body, but your face as well. This cream gives you relief from extremely dry skin due to harsh winter weather, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis (scaly skin), keratosis pilaris (goose bumps on your arms and thighs that never seem to go away), and psoriasis (scaly, patchy skin). You’ll love that this cream doesn’t leave a greasy residue after you’ve massaged it in. This is a definite do!
