Healing Violet's Skin.

I've always had very sensitive skin. I'm fair so burn easily, but also suffer with a rare skin condition and have generally awkward skin. And unfortunately that seems to be something Violet has inherited. 

Last week she came out in a mild rash, that very quickly turned into something more and despite seeing two pharmacists and two GPs no one could put their finger on what had caused it. I will apologise in advance for the close up photos, but we were keeping a close eye on the area. I've been so impressed with the healing process I needed to share my new found love for some products. This is in no way a sponsored post, just a very happy Mama. 

After speaking to a few of my friends, who's babies also suffer with problematic skin, the consensus was to give Aveeno a go. It's really easy to pick up in the supermarket so I thought it couldn't hurt to try. We picked up the Soothing Relief Baby Emollient Cream for the sore and dry areas and the Daily Care Hair and Body Wash for the bath. 

We have been religiously applying the emollient cream to the irritated area at every nappy change and lathering her entirely in the cream before bed. And the results are right below. Today marks a week since the first photo was taken and the improvement is remarkable. The area is well moisturised and the skin has renewed itself amazingly fast.
Again, we've only been using the body and hair care at bath time, to ensure we don't aggravate the skin again. I imagine this has helped with the cradle cap, Violet still has too!

I am absolutely blown away with how quickly her skin has cleared up and how different it looks from a week a go. I was worried this was going to be a long term issue that we would struggle to get under control. But with the right products for her skin, we had definitely got on top of the issue and will continue with our regime to prevent it from happening again. 

If you're in the market for eczema prone skin, I would without a doubt recommend giving Aveeno a go.
