Used regularly they help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by helping the skin retain moisture. They should be applied frequently to prevent the skin drying out.In conditions such as eczema, using a moisturiser regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups of this condition.Cetraben Creamalso contains glycerin, which is absorbed into the skin where it attracts water to itself, helping to retain water in the skin surface.EmollientsEmollients are non-cosmetic moisturisers which come in the form of creams, ointments, lotions and gels.Emollients help skin to feel more comfortable and less itchy.They keep the skin moist and flexible, helping to prevent cracks.Creams contain a mixture of fat and water and feel light and cool to the skin.For this reason many people with eczema prefer creams for day time use.All creams contain preservatives and people can become sensitive to them, although this is not common.Used every day, emollients may be all you need to keep mild to moderate eczema under control.How are emollients applied and when?Apply emollients after bathing, while water is still trapped in the skin for extra hydration. Use liberally and frequently at least three times a day. Apply gently in the direction of the hair growth.Never rub up and down vigorously as this could trigger itching, block hair follicles or create more heat in the skin Continue to use the emollient, even when the eczema has improved as this will help prevent flare ups.
