Our skin is exposed to a number of factors every day that can cause red, irritated and inflamed skin. Whether they are caused by harsh chemicals, cold or dry weather or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, these irritating symptoms leave your skin feeling rough and dry. FixMySkin 1% Hydrocortisone Healing Body Balm – Unscented is a multipurpose product that targets these irritating symptoms.
The FixMySkin Balms were created by dermatologist Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his son, Daniel, and they are manufactured entirely in the United States. They have received a patent for the invention and the balm is a favorite among many of Dr. Schlessinger’s dermatology patients for treating eczema, dry skin and other issues. All of the FixMySkin Balms have recently been repackaged but the effective formula remains the same.
The hero ingredient in this balm is 1% hydrocortisone, a topical steroid used to treat inflammation. Hydrocortisone penetrates deeply into the skin to reduce inflammation and relieve itching, irritation and flaking. The formula also contains hydrating ingredients that reduce dryness and nourish skin. Cocoa butter and shea butter soften a rough, uneven texture while soothing skin.
One of the biggest benefits of this balm is that it can be used on a wide range of issues. If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis or extremely dry skin, you can use this balm to reduce scaling, flaking and itching. The balm is also effective at soothing symptoms of allergic reactions, insect bites and poison ivy.
You can apply this gentle balm up to three times a day to the affected area. Even children and babies can safely use this product. Because it comes in a convenient stick applicator, you can apply the balm anywhere on your face or body and take it with you wherever you go.
