I want to introduce you to the Cheryl Lee MD Ultimate Eczema Kit this morning, or should I say my daughter wants to introduce you to this life changing kit.
Willow has had eczema since she was a very small baby. Back in the day (2003-ish), her pediatrician consistently prescribed strong steroid creams to keep her eczema in check. Those creams smelled bad and they did not come without consequence, like her not being able to play outside, itching, irritation and rash. It was almost like she was trading one ailment for another.
It was around 2008, after the birth of her little sister that I decided to take her off steroid creams and get a new pediatrician. Her new pediatrician had some unconventional, but effective ways to keep Willow’s eczema in check, like applying Crisco to damp skin after a bath (it worked WELL). It was a blessing to receive good advice and see her skin make a complete turnaround.
Willow is much older now, 13, and Crisco is just not cool enough to carry in her gym bag (kids these days), so I was forced to look for something as effective and hydrating to keep her skin in optimal condition.
Cheryl Lee MD Ultimate Eczema Kit ($149.97) is a simple 3 step process to calm, protect, and maintain the itching, irritation, inflammation and redness associated with eczema. Created by Dermatologist Dr. Cheryl Lee Eberting. TrueLipids® is the only brand in the world to address all five problems of the abnormal skin barrier:
- Deficient lipid production
- Abnormal pH
- Abnormal growth of bacteria like Staph. aureus
- Chemical Sensitivities and Allergies
The kit includes:
TrueLipids Relieve & Protect Ointment
TrueLipids Relieve & Protect Ointment works at the source of dry, cracked skin by providing a patent-pending blend of essential skin lipids. This ointment relieves and protects dry, itchy, chapped, cracked, wind-burned and irritated skin, and it is effective for all ages and skin types. Willow plays soccer (she just made the team) and her biggest complaint thus far as been her socks rubbing her feet and ankles dry. She’s been using this ointment as almost a barrier cream, allowing her to practice every evening without the stress and pain.
TrueLipids TrueTherapy Ceramide+ Cream
TrueLipids TrueTherapy Ceramide+ Cream is a cutting-edge, deeply moisturizing dry skin cream. Lipid Release Technology gives long-lasting, controlled lipid release to the skin where it needs it most. This cream is beneficial for people of all ages and varying skin types, and it helps to treat very dry skin. This is one of the best products on the market for dry skin. I even find myself using this from time to time because once you apply it, you don’t have to reapply all day. This cream delivers DEEP hydration.
TrueLipids Eczema Experts Anti-Itch 1% Hydrocortisone Barrier Cream
TrueLipids Eczema Experts Anti-Itch 1% Hydrocortisone Barrier Cream was formulated for skin irritations such as itchy skin, inflammation, and rashes. This cream is often used in conjunction with the TrueLipids Relieve & Protect Ointment. Willow applies this cream at night after a bath to treat itchy areas like the folds of her arms, behind the knees, and her neck.
The Ultimate Eczema Kit has not only improved Willow’s eczema, but her self-esteem.
