The best moisturizers for eczema, highly recommended by skincare experts
With the cooler months upon us (see: torrential downpour and heavy wind), skin is left dehydrated and tight. The inevitable humidity may even cause the skin barrier to be disrupted and weaken, especially if you’re living with eczema, which makes it hard for skin to retain water. For every swift change in season follows a critical change in routine.
Restore much needed moisture to skin with these dermatologist-approved and recommended creams for eczema-prone and dry skin.
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream (from P490-P1,690)
The 2018 Allure Best of Beauty Awardee, also approved by YouTube’s resident skincare specialist Skincare by Hyram, is patented with the brand’s Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE) technology. This helps protect the skin barrier by providing long lasting hydration. With hero ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream effectively keeps dry skin plump all-day. The mild, emollient cream developed with dermatologists is non-greasy, fragrance-free and fast-absorbing—what’s not to like?
