Can I Still Go Swimming with Eczema?
It’s tricky in the summer, when the sun is shining and you / your children want to go swimming. It’s especially important for babies and children with eczema to be extra careful, as chlorine can be drying on the skin. For some people, it can actually help eczema, but for lots with eczema and dry, sensitive skin, it can cause eczema flare ups. I’d recommend taking a dip, then rinsing the chlorine off and moisturising quickly, to lock moisture into the skin, and keep allergens out.
Try our Organic Beeswax Balms as your body moisturising, which are 100% Organic, with hero ingredient, Organic Beeswax, which is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal, and particularly nourishing and soothing for those with dry skin, eczema and psoriasis.
Keeping the skin nourished by using a natural balm to lock moisture in and allergens out is crucial to anyone who has eczema, to prevent flare ups, and is particularly important in the summer, when skin can easily dry out.
