According to the NHS, 1 in 12 UK adults suffer from eczema. And although the skin condition usually improves in adulthood, this doesn't stop the occasional flare ups, which can be irritating and painful. Flare ups can be as a result of any number of reasons; stress at work or home, late nights, lots of coffee, drinking, smoking, allergic reactions to toiletries, cosmetics or cleaning products, and wearing scents can all lead to an unfortunate and unpleasant eczema outburst.

The good news is that with a little home care and treatment you can manage the condition and soothe the irritated skin. You can do this by using just a handful of products that are an alternative to steroid creams and can provide just as much relief.

A bath spa mat with remote control is a great way to soothe the itching. It works the skin from the outside and inside by using the jet action of the mat to stimulate the skin and encourage circulation. The bath spa mat with remote control is also great for relieving tension, by massaging the muscles and in turn bringing stress levels down and lowering the chance of a stress related outbreak.

Bath and shower oil is also a great way of treating outbreaks of eczema. Aveeno bath and shower oil is a leading product in eczema treatment. It combines concentrated colloidal oatmeal: a naturally active ingredient that has softening oils which cleanse, moisturise and condition eczema prone skin. Aveeno bath and shower oil should be applied in the shower directly to wet skin, gently massaged in and rinsed off thoroughly. Alternatively, 2 tablespoons can be added to bath water before a soak. As it's a bath and shower oil, it's a versatile product that can be used with a spa bath mat for quick and long lasting relief.
