As I’ve gotten older, my skin has gotten more and more sensitive. I’ve noticed that my skin is more susceptible to irritation from things like scratchy fabrics and certain laundry detergents; sometimes I’ll break out in itchy hives on my face and neck for no apparent reason (allegedly it’s stress related, but in that case I should have those hives non-stop!) I’ve pretty much just dealt with it, since the hives and itchy spots eventually go away on their own. (I’ve tried Benadryl for the more severe outbreaks, but that makes me sleepy and I’m already sleep-deprived; I’ve also tried a couple of lotions/creams designed for itchy skin, butI didn’t see much difference between that and waiting it out ). My husband and youngest son have it worse: they frequently break out in itchy little hives all over the place, and nothing we’ve tried so far has worked very well for them either.
I was given the chance to try two TrueLipids products courtesy of Cheryl Lee MD, Sensitive Skin Care. I was sent TrueLipids® TrueTherapy™ Ceramide+ Cream™ ($49.99 ARV) and TrueLipids® Eczema Experts™ Anti-Itch 1% Hydrocortisone Barrier Cream ($49.99 ARV). The TrueLipids line of products was created by a dermatologist – and a mom – who’s a Fellow of the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health.
The very first thing I did when I received the package was test out the TrueTherapy Ceramide + Cream, which is a deep moisturizing dry skin therapy. Here in northern Michigan, we’ve had a long, bitter-cold winter, and my skin has been terribly dry all winter long. (In fact, there were a couple flurries floating around earlier today even – yes, on May 5th – it’s all the way up to 35 degrees Fahrenheit now, though, so the snow has switched over to rain. Yay?) This is a lot more than just a lotion or skin cream; it contains natural, anti-inflammatory extract from licorice root, and also contains Niacinamide, which has been shown to benefit problems such as dry skin and eczema-prone skin. This cream is thicker than most store-bought lotions so it takes a little more effort to rub in, but a little goes a long way. (A dab the size of a nickel covered both my arms from elbows to fingertips – and I have long arms). My skin immediately felt and looked more hydrated, and was still silky smooth hours later.
I also had the chance to test out the TrueLipids Eczema Experts Anti-Itch 1% Hydrocortisone Barrier Cream when I got a small itchy breakout on my back. (Have you ever tried taking a picture of your own back? It’s not easy… but I did my best!)
