Scarring: Top Tips
Scarring can be an upsetting consequence of eczema, but there are solutions available to limit its appearance.
1. Skin camouflage offers a major step forward for anyone suffering with the consequences that can occur as a result of eczema: redness, discolouration, and scars.
2. The colour changes that are experienced with eczema can be concealed anywhere that they occur on the body. Cover creams can give a natural even colour to the skin, although they cannot mask the changes in the skin’s texture.
3. Adjust your colour mix as your scars heal and when the seasons change.
4. Prior to applying the cover cream, always apply and maintain your daily scar management routine.
5. It always helps to express your feelings and share the challenges faced when coping with eczema - both with and without the use of cover creams.
