Well, I hope you like my pathetic attempt at being funny - eye (I) sorted it. Anyway, this post is related to a previous post where I mentioned I had really sore eyes. Thank you so much to those of you who got in touch to give me some advice on some creams/treatments to give a go.
As I mentioned in the other post, my eyes were so sore and sensitive to anything that I was trying and it was just making the whole thing worse I think. I have quite sensitive skin, always have, so have always been quite careful on what products I use. I'm not sure what caused this particular irritation but thankfully, it's pretty much all cleared up and it's all thanks to...........Bepanthen - Nappy care ointment (urgh I hate that word lol)! You may now be thinking -'what the hell is she doing putting nappy cream on her face', well I thought exactly the same. But, on the say so of a colleague who swore it was the only thing that ever sorted her daughters eyes when they were irritated, I thought what harm could it do???
Anyway, after applying it every night on the sore areas and letting it sink in whilst I slept, I have most definitely seen a difference. Bepanthen is designed to protect and care from the causes of nappy rash and help gentle skin recovery - obviously the first part of this doesn't really apply, but because it's gentle it was definitely suitable enough for my delicate eye area.
So girlies, if you have any troubles in the future with sensitive skin around, give this a thought!
