Cold weather, central heating and stress can all wreak havoc on our skin at this time of year causing many of us to experience severe dry skin or eczema and psoriasis flare-ups.
For some, however, dealing with the psychological impact of having red, chapped, sore and unsightly skin can be overwhelming. According to The British Skin Foundation, nearly 50 per cent of people with a skin disease in the UK have been victims of verbal abuse. It can be particularly stressful and affect a person’s self-esteem if they have itchy, dry, irritated skin on their scalp which often leaves embarrassing tell-tale flakes on their clothes.
Recently introduced to the UK is Grahams Skincare, Australia’s best-selling natural skincare products has a complete range of treatments to soothe mild sensitive skin and more severe eczema and psoriasis flare-ups all over the body, including the scalp. They contain innovative natural ingredients and plant extracts, such as manuka honey and emu oil, to deeply penetrate layers of the skin to intensely nourish and help repair the skin’s protective barrier.
Grahams Skincare, was founded by Geoff Graham in his quest to ensure his son did not have to suffer from the debilitating physical and psychological effect of severe eczema, as he had done.
“After living with eczema all my life and having one of the worst cases of infantile eczema medics had ever seen at the Royal Children’s Hospital at Melbourne, I simply couldn’t bear to watch my son, Ryan, as a young toddler in such pain with intensely itchy skin head to toe and I was desperate to create natural products that would soothe sensitive skin on the scalp and all over the body and be pleasant to apply,” Geoff Graham, Founder of Grahams Skincare explains.
Grahams Skincare Natural Shampoo & Conditioner contains manuka honey and a gentle blend of organic and natural ingredients with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and protect irritated skin on the scalp preventing the skin from further drying out and any unsightly flakes.
Grahams Calendulis Plus Cream, containing manuka honey and emu oil, can also be rubbed into the scalp at night to nourish and sooth red and inflamed skin and also promote quick healing and then washed off in the morning, leaving the hair and scalp hydrated and itch-free.
Grahams Skincare natural products are totally free of parabens and petrochemicals and also include a body wash, bath oil and soap as well as soothing creams and an intensely hydrating ointment to provide a complete treatment regime for long-lasting hydrated and comfortable skin head to toe.
