Caring for Sensitive & Eczema-Prone Skin


If you have sensitive skin, you know that a rash, redness or itching can be incredibly frustrating. If it happens often and seems to be linked to certain products or environments, it's even more challenging. Eczema generally appears on the hands, ankles and sides of the feet, but can also affect other areas such as the face, elbows, cheeks and behind the knees. Eczema can cause skin to become thickened with a scaly appearance (exfoliative dermatitis), or red, dry and inflamed (contact dermatitis).Β 


Eczema can be very uncomfortable and itchy. However, there are many ways to effectively manage this condition. Over-the-counter products and prescription creams can help soothe your symptoms, while a consultation with a dermatologist is ideal. Whether your skin is very dry and flaky or sensitive to a specific ingredient like fragrance, it’s essential to steer clear of harsh ingredients and switch to a gentle product. Throughout the years, MAKARI customers have used and loved the Bebe collection for its gentle and hydrating effects on their eczema. This collection is specially designed for baby skin, so the formula is great for sensitive skin and free of parabens, allergens, and is peditrician-approved.Β 


The Bebe collection is great for anyone with sensitive skin or just wants gentle formula. If you're prone to dry, itchy skin and have eczema flare-ups, the key to easing discomfort is good hydration first and foremost. Made with sweet almond oil and chamomile extract, these ingredients help keep your skin healthy and protected from harmful UV radiation while delivering moisture and softness to the skin. When trying out any new products, always do a patch test on a small spot on your skin. If you don’t notice any irritation, then you should be good to go.
