My skin has been problematic for almost a year now.
And during this moment that I have less issues, I think that Aveeno® Dermexa is another one of those skin care that have helped maintain this balance. You all know I had good results in almost all of the atopic skincare that I have tried and used but I just think I can now say that this might be the product that maintained everything in such a long while.
This is an emolient cream for both adults and children which prevents irritation and dryness by hydrating and soothing the skin for an immediate relief. It is a specific product for dry skin types and atopic tendencies.
The italian word for oats is called: “Avena”. And I think that is where the brand got its name. That is just my presumption LOL! But I think the name is very smart and very coherent to what the brand and the line is all about.
It in fact claims a long term effect for up to 7 days. And yet here I am religiously applying the cream every chance I get especially after shower.
It is adviced to pair with the shower cream for best results, and that I will of course talk about on my next article.
It has no perfume at all, I love that! It has high tollerance formula and therefore it is good for sensitive skin types like mine.
Aveeno is very proud of its three-oat formula:the triple complex with Probiotic oats.
Oatmeal is one of the most natural ingredients for skin care. It helps maintain hydration preventing the skin from drying out.
It also has the anti infiammatory capacity and antioxidants, too.
The description in their website says that because of its probiotic power, oatmeal stimulates good bacteria growth and microbiome.
This formula recovers the damaged skin barrier by protecting the skin from external damage like pollution, harmful bacteria and rigid climate.
Colloidal oats come from oats reduced to a fine powder during the grinding process. In this way, oats can remain suspended in a liquid and be added to delicate and effective skin care products, without losing the benefits of proteins, lipids or enzymes.
TRIPLE COMPLEX WITH PREBIOTIC OATS
*Prebiotic oats are one of the most beneficial ingredients for skin care. It helps strengthen its natural barrier ensuring a healthy and balanced complexion.
*oat extracts soothes irritated skin
*oat oil restores the skin’s barrier function
The triple complex of oats is achieved by gently extracting key elements from raw oats. This concentrates the positive effects of the chemical compounds found within it and which enhance its soothing prebiotic characteristics.
TRIPLE COMPLEX WITH OATS AND CERAMIDES
The triple complex of prebiotic oats: colloidal oats + oat extract + oat oil combined with ceramides help to improve and stabilize the natural balance of the skin microbiome, for healthy looking skin, and more elasticity benefit.
Ceramides is important for restoring the protective function of the skin. So the combined formula of the probiotic oats and ceramides has been proven to be so helpful in reducing the itchiness and irritation that atopic-skin types like mine is experiencing. And this, guys just improves the quality of life. I don’t experience sleepless nights anymore like I had during the initial experience because of the itchy feeling on my skin. It was so uncomfortable and the worst skin issue I have ever gone through.
According to their website description: The careful extraction process of Aveeno® oats ensures the maintenance of the saponins, polysaccharides, proteins and lipids present in oats, facilitating the concentration of their prebiotic effects. This restores the balance of the skin microbiome, helping the good bacteria to thrive on and in the skin.
I don’t have flare-ups anymore and I am really thankful. There is no “cure” for eczema, that I have learned and accepted. The only thing that I can do is to maintain my skin to be healthy and use products that will prevent it from coming back. Avoid eating unnecessary unhealthy food, I think that is also important, guys. That is why I always say in all of my articles to listen to your skin and listen to your body. Be mindful of what you feel. I also believe that rest is a must. We are always busy that we sometimes forget about getting a good night’s sleep. Exercise is also not just a lifestyle but I firmly believe it is also very important and helps release some stressors in our lives.
Guys, I have been very transparent. In my quest to find the right product for my skin I have tried a lot and I should tell you that no matter what skin care we apply everyday, at least for me, I also realized that stress is also a part of eczema. So being constant with my skincare routine I try my best, guys. I really do. Like what I mentioned, don’t forget to rest and sleep if you have the chance. And I am still learning. I think that in all of the skincare, oats is fundamental. I will also discuss a little bit about that as well. I love oatmeal it is one of the food that I eat for breakfast!
That being said, I hope this has been helpful. This is one of the products that I can recommend- unless of course you are allergic to oats, please consult your health-care provider. Other than that this is such a good discovery!
Thank you for reading! see you on my next article! Ciao!
