Whenever I see moisturiser for sensitive skin on sale, I would buy and stock up at home. We have got two pretty bad situations of eczema and sensitive skin that’s easily irritated in our household. Repairing badly scratched and open skin has been a major headache for us. Recently I was introduced to Cicaplast Baume B5 that’s said to repair my skin in 7-days. It has been more than a week since I introduced this balm to my family and now Zara even has a name for it – she calls it “The Cream”.
Zara’s skin is very sensitive since birth, I can’t recall when was the last time her whole body is free from any skin irritation. This poor girl cannot stop scratching itchy parts all over her body and is always rubbing her eyes. People who doesn’t know us may think that this 3 year old girl has got sleeping problem or sort cos she has got very dark circles under her eyes. This is the result of sensitive nose, eyes and skin.
The scratching get worst during hot weather and the recent heat wave has caused us both countless of sleepless nights just because her body will itch when she gets too warm from laying down in bed. And we are sleeping in air-conditioned rooms! Every time she wakes up in the middle of the night, I’ll have to apply layer of moisturiser all over her back, shoulder and arms. In the mornings, she will wake up with patches of swelling skin at different parts of her body.
I would try anything that’s safe for children to help improve the skin irritation she is suffering. And so “The Cream” is now her favourite. I asked the eczema prone father in the house how he felt about the cream. And he said it soothes the itch instantly upon application. That’s why Zara is loving it so much. And now before bedtime I would apply a layer of the Cicaplast Baume B5 onto her back and itch prone areas, these nights we both slept in peace.
