A few years ago I had a nasty bout of excema on my face when seemed to appear overnight, and looked like somene had got a grater to the whole side of my left face.
Being female, i was devistated, and of course attempted to cover the horrid redness and lumps with foundadtion
I cant say it knocked my confidence at all, but i was extremely self concious about the way i looked, especially as i was free and singkle at the time.
so, after several trips back and forth to the doctors, with nothing prescribed working, i took a trip to my local health shop to try and alternative remedy
god i was glad i did - the lady behind the counter advised me to try this, which also came in an oitment form, so i purchased both
once home, i covered the area in quite a thick covering and let it sink into my skin to do its stuff.
the following morning, i woke up and rushed to the mirror, as i always did, to check how red it was looking
to my suprise, the redness was looking loads better, and that was just after one use! i couldnt wait to apply it again
so, in a nut shell, after two weeks my face was clear of all excema! all down to nelsons calendula cream and oitments.
i found that the cream was suitable for day time use, using the oitment version at night as it was greasy on the skin
i now swear by this little tube, and use nothing else when my excema flares up and would highyly recommend it to anyone with the conditions.
i know it wont work for everyone, but it did for me and a close friend. so for a small price of £4.95, with no steroids, its worth a go
I have used Nelson's Calendula Cream for years, I buy it from Boots for £7.50. I first tried it for eczema on my elbows and it worked a treat, soothed it and smoothed it in a few days. I've since used it on other areas of eczema with the same results, on contact dermatitis which I get from soaps and washing up liquid on my fingers, on my shins if they get irritated from shaving, on my heels if they get cracked and dry, on my face if my skin has a dry period, on any areas that get irritated from heat and clothing rubbing and I've recommended it to any of my friends who have babies that get nappy rash and it works a treat on all those conditions.
Calendula is derived from Marigolds and was apparently used in World War I on wounds as a wash to prevent them becoming infected. It also apparently has anti-fungal qualities as well as moisturising, soothing and antiseptic properties. It's a little known rememdy that in my opinion isn't used enough.
I always head straight for my Calendula Cream if I get any dry skin for any reason or minor skin irritations that have no broken skin.
I need this by the bucket-load !
My dad introduced me to it after he had some major problems with chemicals affecting the skin on his hands.
This lovely natural soothing cream by Nelsons - calendula - is derived from marigolds, would you believe.
Not too thick, it rubs in quite easily - with no greasiness or residue on the skin's surface.
Superb for itchy patches or sore/broken skin - could even be used lightly for mild eczema.
I had the most annoying patch of continuously itchy skin on the side of one of my fingers - this magic cream solved the problem after a few applications !
As for eyes - we all now how careful you have to be when it comes to using things near the eyes - I am always experiencing a stress-related breakout of itchy, sore, flaky skin on my upper right eyelid ('She sounds like a real bundle of fun', I bet you are thinking !)
Again, a few applications keep this annoyance at bay.
So, I have all good things to say about the magic cream.
Nelsons Calendula cream is a soothing multi-purpose skin cream, specially prepared from the Calendula (Marigold) plant well known for its healing properties.
