As cold, dry fall air starts to move in, you might notice that your skin starts to feel dry, too. For people with eczema, this shift in weather can also mean flare-ups of symptoms, like patches of itchy, flaky skin. Luckily, you don’t have to live with uncomfortable itching all winter long.
Allure 2019 Best of Beauty Award Winner Kamedis Eczema Therapy Cream contains botanical ingredients that have been clinically proven to relieve eczema symptoms more effectively than non-botanical creams.
Kamedis Eczema Therapy Cream: What’s Inside the Bottle?
This over-the-counter (OTC) eczema treatment cream uses traditional Chinese medicine to relieve dry, itchy skin and even burns. Its combination of botanical ingredients like Chinese rhubarb, great burnet, tree of heaven, Baikal skullcap, cnidium fruit, and licorice extracts has been shown to be 23% more effective than a leading OTC brand, and 44% more effective than a non-botanical formulation from Kamedis.
These botanicals are known to possess strong anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties, making them excellent ingredients for eczema sufferers.
What Causes Eczema?
While researchers are still unsure of the exact cause of eczema, we do know that underlying inflammation is the culprit for its symptoms of dryness, itching, flaking, and redness.
“Skin inflammation happens when inflammatory factors in your body stimulate your blood vessels to dilate and your mast cells to release histamine,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Leslie Baumann. “This leads to redness, swelling, and itching.”
So the best way to manage your symptoms is to target that inflammation with known anti-inflammatory ingredients to help soothe and heal your skin. In addition to its Eczema Therapy Cream, Kamedis offers a line of anti-inflammatory products aimed at calming these symptoms.
