What is Aveeno Dermexa Balm?
Aveeno Dermexa Balm is a skin treatment that helps to restore moisture to the skin. It is formulated using a Triple Oat Complex, which contains Avenanthramides, Oat Oil and Colloidal Oatmeal, as well as Ceramides. This balm will get deep into the skin and restore the skin’s natural barrier that has been lost. A loss of the skin barrier leads to itching. Using this balm will help to restore the barrier in just one week. This balm is suitable to be used by anyone who has eczema and wants relief from its effects.
What causes eczema?
Eczema is as a result of the skin lacking moisture because it cannot keep moisture retained within it. The reason why someone may suffer from eczema is most likely to be hereditary. If someone’s parents or siblings suffer from eczema, then the chances of them suffering from the condition are much more likely. Eczema is triggered by a number of different things, including:
- Irritants – these include certain types of soaps such as soaps, shampoo, and washing up liquid
- The environment – cold weather, dry weather, and also allergens can contribute to the effects of eczema
- Certain foods – including milk, eggs, peanuts, soya and wheat
- Clothing such as wool and synthetic materials
- Hormonal changes – women, in particular, may suffer from the effects of eczema during their period or when pregnant
- Skin infections can also make eczema worse
Stress can also increase the chances of eczema appearing. There is no known cure for eradicating eczema completely, only treatments for reducing its effects.
