Jessica's Story

Skin Type: Eczema 
Prominent Location: Face
Trigger: Dust, Food, Detergent (biological)

Atopic eczema tends to run in families, so if one or both parents have eczema, it is more likely that their children will develop it too, but eczema sufferer Jessica said no one else in her family has it.

"I was told that I would grow out of it once I got older, however that is not the case as I still consistently have eczema flare-ups. I’ve had to grow and learn to deal with them and manage my skin"

Having eczema makes life difficult. Every day, I spend so long moisturising my whole body or putting on different types of creams before I can start my day. It’s not just an external skin condition but it affects how you do things and the way you see yourself."

"Dust, certain foods (beef, tomatoes, etc), bedding, and towels that haven’t been washed in non-bio detergents can trigger me. Travelling and being away from home is probably one of my biggest triggers and it takes a while for me to recover from my eczema flare-ups when I get home.”

I have been using Epaderm for as long as I can remember. I always use the big ointment tub which lasts ages. It’s my go-to ointment as it’s so thick and soothes my dry skin.

“It particularly helps my face as it gets so dry due to exposure to the cold, harsh weather conditions, and I can use Epaderm as a base for my make-up too.

Epaderm prevents my skin from getting too dry and acts as a barrier for my skin, to stop it getting drier especially in the winter months. My skin feels a lot softer after using Epaderm which is a bonus, even if I am flaring.”
