Expatriate Insurance News: Moisturiser 'can help with eczema'

Expatriates suffering from eczema may wish to see if they can receive moisturising products through international healthcare policies.

Founder and director of Purepotions Natalie Balmond said: "What is key for most forms of eczema is to keep the skin as moisturised as possible."

She noted her company uses hemp oil in its creams, which can be useful for people with dry or cracking skin.

"Hemp is a great way to deliver essential fatty acids to the body through the skin," the specialist continued, noting eczema sufferers often lack these.

Other factors can lead to the illness flaring up, the expert remarked, pointing to environmental complaints, stress, washing powder and perfumes as some of the things that can exacerbate the condition.

Allergies, such as sensitivity to pollen and dust, can also be a factor in the development of eczema.

Ms Balmond suggested men and women who cannot find any skincare products to alleviate the ailment should examine these issues to "work out what is causing it".
