Many people now suffer from a wide range of skin conditions that leave them struggling with some serious and often upsetting day-to-day symptoms. There are a surprising number of us living each day now with Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis.
Itching, flaking, soreness, cracking, weeping, pain, scaling and even bleeding can all be the true cost of living with a serious form of one of these conditions. A large number of people will be receiving treatment under their doctor or consultant. Many will know that often medical treatment involves some heavy-duty creams that involve steroids for times when the conditions are flaring up and the symptoms are peaking.
In the long run people suffering have to treat their skin to help prevent these big flare ups and will use creams and lotions daily to help keep the skin moisturised and relieve some of the lighter symptoms.
More now then ever many of us are looking to seek natural alternatives to standard products. With this in mind we have been trying out a product from Hope’s Relief called Dry Skin Rescue Cream.
Hope’s Relief – Dry Skin Rescue Cream is a cream specifically made with these skin condition and very dry skin in mind. A natural product free from all of the following: Steroids, Hormones, SLS, Parabens, Artificial Colours & fragrances, Propylene Glycol, Lanolin, Peroxides, Coal Tar, paraffins and Mineral Oils. The cream is part of a range of products all of which are hypoallergenic!
The range has been developed in Australia by a Naturopath who created these therapeutic products using natural ingredients including: Active Manuka Honey (Hospital Grade UMF 10+), Gotu Kola, Aloe Vera, Organic Calendula and licorice Root. Now because it contains these fantastic natural ingredients and its free from all the nasty additions the cream has a slightly unusual look and smell. It’s a light brown in colour and it smells, well its smell a little like it’s contents. You can smell hints of licorice and honey, it’s not unpleasant in fact it’s almost got a hint of a fruit cake smell. The more important thing is this cream absorbs almost instantly, and a little bit goes a very long way. Theres no hint of the colour on the skin, but you will be really surprised by how quickly this cream absorbs into the skin and how non greasy or sticky this is, since essentially this is a protective barrier cream.
The important part for a sufferer is that it’s a 3-in-1 cream, it Soothes and calms – irritated itchy skin, Moisturises – penetrates deep to soften dry skin, Regenerates – leaves skin soft and supple. Also its good to note that this cream is perfectly safe to use on anyone, from infants to the elderly! Not quite sure? 93% of people in the pilot study showed significant improvements in skin conditions such as Eczema, Psorasis and Dermatitis. Beyond that you are also offered a money back guarantee if your still not impressed after 4 weeks.
From a personal point of view, we have given this a try in our household, I’m a sufferer of Eczema and general dry skin and my husband has some pretty nasty Psorasis. We have both tried the cream, even over some fairly nasty patches of irritated skin. I have to say its pretty impressive. Its absorbed quicker then any cream of this type I’ve tried, there was none of the usual residue that I have had with a cream that is targeted at these type of skin conditions and a little does go a long way. I would also say it would be great even if you are just suffering very dry skin on places like the hands, feet, elbows and knees.
The cream is part of a range of products that include a Moisturising Lotion, Soothing Scalp Care Soap-free Cleansing Bar and Goats Milk Products.
