Red, irritated and just downright annoying patches of eczema and and dry skin are a constant struggle for my 5 year old! Of course, it doesn’t help that we live in FL… and like any child, she loves to run and play! After an hour outside, her little face is sweaty… and the red patches flare up in the creases of her elbows and behind her knees. Now that she is older, she tells me when she needs her eczema cream, so we keep many varieties on hand. It’s always amazing to me when we try a new brand that some that claim not to irritate skin, actually sting and bother her, and we have to wash it off quickly!

ClearLotion Spray 2016

We were recently sent Theraplex® skincare to try, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the line! Not only is the Theraplex Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Skin Protectant creamy and easy to apply, it does not contain parabens, fragrances, phthalates, gluten, or sodium laurel sulfate. Plus, the line is made in the USA without animal testing. Most importantly, it does not irritate my little girl’s skin any further!

If you have children who don’t stop moving (and who doesn’t!?), try Theraplex ClearLotion. It is a light, fast penetrating emollient oil spray, and when applied to damp skin, it uniquely wraps around water on the skin’s surface, sealing in moisture and replacing the natural oils that water and soap can strip away.

As the summer weather heats up, it is not unusual for people to experience a dramatic increase in perspiration, often causing sensitive skin to “flare up.” This is especially true for children who have eczema. To help keep your child’s skin “cool in the shade,” the experts who make Theraplex® skincare offer summer tips designed to keep sensitivities in check.

Eczema Therapy 2016

Summer Skincare Tips

· To help keep your child feeling cooler and drier, avoid the sun when it is at its’ strongest (from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m).

· Apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. Many pediatric dermatologists recommend physical sunscreens as they may be less irritating than chemical sunscreens.

· If your child has been in the ocean or pool, rinse chlorine or salt off with a gentle cleanser and immediately apply a moisturizer such as Theraplex ClearLotion. ClearLotion has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. After towel drying, ClearLotion leaves skin moisturized for hours without greasiness. And, because ClearLotion is a spray, you will be able to apply it to even the wriggliest of children!

· Make sure your child drinks plenty of fluids and stays hydrated.

· For added protection and comfort any time of day or night, try Theraplex Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Skin Protectant with natural colloidal oatmeal. It also has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. This enriched moisturizing formula helps to relieve dry skin with superior moisturization that lasts for hours. It soothes your child’s dry, sensitive skin without parabens, fragrances, preservatives, or lanolin.

With the longest day of summer officially behind us, treat yourself and your little one to skincare essentials that cleanse, moisturize and soothe. The team at Tiny Green Mom was recently introduced to the following body and skincare lines…and literally has had so much fun soaking them all in! From at home after the bath to after a day spent enjoying the beach, these lines are top picks in our home this summer.

 

Honey Buns Kit

Honey Buns Baby Kit

Leader of all things honeybee, Savannah Bee Company launched the Honey Buns Baby Kit, their first set of soothing and gentle body care products for babies of all ages this year. Designed with the delicate skin of newborns and infants in mind, this kit offers parents a combination of products to care for their little one’s skin.

Belli Skincare Group

Belli Skincare

Whether you are an expecting mom or postpartum mom, your skin will love Belli Skincare, which has been designed for the specific needs of women! To moisturize parched summer skin, apply the luscious All Day Moisture Lotion which has a light, fresh & uplifting scent. We noted immediately how little lotion you need to apply to have a long-lasting effect…perfect for hydrated skin all day long! To help dry, cracked lips – tuck the Sheer Comfort Lip Balm in your beach bag or purse when out and about in the summer heat. In addition to these favorites, the Anti-Blemish Facial Wash has become a daily addition to “Mom’s” morning shower routine. There is nothing quite like starting the day with glowing, clear skin! If you haven’t heard of this line, head over to their website to find out why they are ‘Picky for a Purpose.‘ The Belli Skincare line does not contain artificial dyes or fragrances, and is paraben preservative-free.

Jojoba Company Baby Oil

Jojoba Company Australia Baby Oil

Your little one will love to receive a baby massage right after bathtime with this amazing 100% Natural Baby Oil, an exceptionally pure and gentle formula that absorbs deeply into baby’s skin to soften, soothe and moisturize. Made exclusively with 100% natural Australian jojoba, which is grown, nurtured and harvested on the company’s own farms down under, the 100% Natural Baby Oil contains absolutely no potential irritants including preservatives, artificial fragrances and parabens. The baby oil may be used for massage, as a bath oil, for cradle cap and diaper rash as well as for every day skin softening and soothing. In addition to jojoba, the Baby Oil is comprised of Organic camellia oil, Organic chamomile oil, Organic lavender oil, and Moringa oil. Did we mention it smells lovely?! Interesting to note – baby’s skin “recognizes” jojoba as its own, and allows it to absorb deeply for greater hydrating benefits. This is definitely a must-have skincare essential if you have a newborn or infant in the home!
