Eczema Tips with Theraplex

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review
My little Quinn has had skin issues since the day he was born!  Every summer when it gets warm and he gets sweaty I just know there is going to be a break out.  In the winter time when he get dry skin it isn't like my dry skin...  His gets so bad that it cracks open and bleeds :(  I feel like it is a constant struggle for my little man.  That is why I am always on the look out for new skin products.  That will not only help his skin when he has a break out, but also help prevent it in the first place!  
Theraplex is perfect for him

As balmy summer weather heats up, it is not unusual for people to experience a dramatic increase in perspiration, often causing sensitive skin to “flare up.” This is especially true for children who have eczema. To help keep your child’s skin “cool in the shade,” the experts who make Theraplex® skincare offer summer tips designed to keep sensitivities in check.              
       To help keep your child feeling cooler and drier, avoid the sun when it is at its strongest (from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m)
       Apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher. Many pediatric dermatologists recommend physical sunscreens as they may be less irritating than chemical sunscreens.

     If your child has been in the ocean or pool, rinse chlorine or salt off with a gentle cleanser and immediately apply a moisturizer such as Theraplex ClearLotion.  A light, fast penetrating emollient oil spray, ClearLotion has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. When applied to damp skin, it uniquely wraps around water on the skin's surface, sealing in moisture and replacing the natural oils that water and soap can strip away. After towel drying, ClearLotion leaves skin moisturized for hours without greasiness. And, because ClearLotion is a spray, you will be able to apply it to even the wriggliest of children!

      Make sure your child drinks plenty of fluids.

        For added protection and comfort any time of day or night, try Theraplex Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Skin Protectant with natural colloidal oatmeal. It also has earned the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance. This enriched moisturizing formula helps to relieve dry skin with superior moisturization that lasts for hours. It soothes your child’s dry, sensitive skin without parabens, fragrances, preservatives, or lanolin

Paddington Bear 2

My boys and I are famous for our epic movie nights!  It is nothing for us to build a fort in our living room, set up a snack table and spend several hours watching our favorites. It normally happens when one of us are sick or the weather outside isn't the best.
This past week we all suffered some stomach bug.  It wasn't fun for anyone but we did get to have a movie weekend!!

The top movie on our list was Paddington Bear 2

Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled with the Brown family in London, where he has become a popular member of the local community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. Hilarity and adventure ensue when the book is stolen and Paddington and the Browns must unmask the thief.

It was just as fun as the first one!  Paddington was sweet and of course trouble just seemed to follow him.  Our poor Paddington finds himself in jail.  His high antics follow him even there!!  Lets just say the prisoners got a lovely pink makeover!!  But do not worry dear readers as always his loved ones pull through and help him, not only be released from jail they also help him find the thief!
This is a must seem family film that is sure to leave everyone giggling and wanting more!

Own it Early on Digital on March 27
Blu-ray debuts on April 24
