I get eczema. There I said it. It pops up on the backs of my hands in the fleshy spot between my thumbs and pointer fingers and in the spaces where my ankles meet my feet. I hate it. It’s itchy, red, uncomfortable and completely uncontrollable unless I use Eau Thermale Avène XeraCalm A.D. Soothing Concentrate.
Specifically mix-mastered with I-Modulia, a biotechnological active ingredient found in France’s thermal spring waters, this body lotion soothes and eases dry itchy skin. It also contains plant-based oils and cer-omega that work to help reduce dryness and reinforce the skin’s natural moisture barrier, so that water stays in and hydrates the epidermis, while preventing dirt, bacteria and other gunk and grime from penetrating it.
Plus it just feels good. I’m not a big lotions person, but this one’s a keeper. It absorbs quickly, does not feel sticky, tacky or greasy and it’s easy to toss into my swim bag, because after doing laps in chlorinated water I need all the moisturizing help I can get. I can even use it on my face, eyelids and lips, but I like it best when it smooths and soothes away my itchy scale-y parts away.
