This Cult French Pharmacy Brand Has a Surprising Fix for Your Eczema



Eczema is a skin condition characterized by red, flaky patches of skin. It causes dryness, itchiness, and sensitivity. Flare-ups can happen anytime, though dry indoor heat and cold outdoor temperatures can make it much, much worse than it is already, meaning winter is rife with eczema flare-up opportunities. 

According to the National Eczema Organization, almost 32 million Americans have some form of it, so it's by no means a niche skin condition. But even so, there aren't that many targeted treatments. Aside from prescription ointments that dermatologists can recommend for specific cases, the general consensus seems to be that the best way to prevent and treat eczema is by simply moisturizing.

With eczema sufferers in mind, one cult-favorite French pharmacy brand, La Roche-Posay, created a unique line of body moisturizers called Lipikar. It works as a prebiotic, diversifying and replenishing the skin's natural bacteria barrier. Keep scrolling to see La Roche-Posay's new prebiotic skincare.
