7. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Facial Moisturizer: SPF 30
No Dr. Dray favorites video is going to be without a sunscreen recommendation. After all that is the most important part of your daily skin care routine, or at least it should be. Are you still not using a sunscreen? What are you waiting for? Have oily, greasy skin and think that you do not need sun protection? Think again! This was me two years ago, and trust me, it is better to start sunscreen today than tomorrow. Do not trust me? That is fine too…Just trust a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Dray.
I know I went on a little tangent there, okay back to the product. This is a mineral sunscreen, it has a cast, so if you have a deeper skin tone, that is something to keep in mind. It is non greasy, does not make your skin shiny, it is good for acne, eczema, rosacea, and other dry skin conditions. Oh and it is a moisturizer as well! Always a plus!

10. Aveeno Eczema Therapy Daily Moisturizing Cream
This has colloidal oatmeal and ceramides. This is a great cream for maintaining skin barrier, it is good for everyday moisturizing. Can be used on the face as well as the body. There is no niacinamide, so if you are someone who finds that niacinamide stings your skin, this is a good product to try out. Gentle, hydrating, soothing and effective. Dermatologist Dr. Dray often recommends this to people with eczema.
11. Aveeno Eczema Therapy Itch Relief Balm
If you find that your skin barrier is greatly impaired. If you have red, peeling, itchy, oozing skin, a balm is a great option to try out. These conditions happen when there is an eczema flare, or suffering from wind burn, or too many cosmetic peels. Irritated skin requires a balm or an ointment. A greasy balm option like this one is a fantastic choice for extremely dry skin conditions.
This can be used on the face, neck, hands, feet, basically anywhere on your body.
Wrapping Up – Great for Diabetics as well!
Another thing worth mentioning is that while helping people with eczema, rosacea, these products are also suitable to people with diabetes. People with diabetes are prone to slow wound healing, and poor circulation, especially in the lower parts of the body. Feet, particularly are prone to dryness in diabetics. So it great to consider using a thick moisturizer on the feet, like the Aveeno Eczema Balm, and put on socks to protect your feet, and do a happy dance!
