As a person who has suffered for eczema their entire life, I know it can be hugely difficult to find a moisturiser that doesn’t burn or irritate your body and face. The trick is to keep it simple. Fewer ingredients means less opportunity to cause irritation. Eczema breaks down the skin's natural barrier, making it more susceptible to allergens, and therefore needs to be continuously hydrated to help protect the skin. Studies have shown that creams and ointments are the best for this as they contain more oil. It is always best to moisturise after washing, as this locks in the moisture for the rest of the day, although if your skin feels dry, itchy or irritated, moisturise as much as you feel necessary. Here's the disclaimer: It is important to find the product for you, but be careful to test all creams and ointments on a small patch of skin, on both your body and face, as we have found there to be creams that work fine for my body, but irritate … [Read more...] about 7 best moisturisers for eczema

On every night out, in every picture, I felt like they were so obvious and I'd constantly be thinking about what I looked like. I'm aware that forehead lines are natural and that everyone gets them, but mine were so much worse in comparison to all my friends, I couldn't help feeling like Gordon Ramsey next to them!

Then there’s the sense of being tucked away in a timeless sanctuary – of summer meadows awash with buttercups (head to Lower Slaughter); of winter fires crackling in long-established pubs (make for The Five Alls at Filkins).
