Have you got your hands on the 'miracle cream' that's currently wowing the nation via social media?
Mail Online reports:
A mother claims her psoriasis disappeared after using a cream for children that has been branded a 'miracle moisturiser'.
Laura Gray, from the North East, suffered from the incurable skin condition for years. Only 'harsh' creams from pharmacists offered her any sort of relief.
But her patches were gone within a day after her mother's suggestion to try Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser, which she bought from Asda.
Her post, which has been shared more than 46,000 times, said:
Needed to share this with you all. I suffer from psoriasis, have done for years. I get it up my arms, neck and chest and up until yesterday only hydrocortisone cream would get rid of it but it’s really harsh and only pharmacists can give you it. Yesterday my Mam told me try this baby moisturiser. I’m not joking 24 hours later my psoriasis is gone! Anyone suffering with psoriasis or eczema you need to try this! £3.99 in Asda in the baby aisle or online at childsfarm.com❤️
I'm usually a bit of a sceptic when it comes to viral posts like this but I'll let you in on something – I have recently discovered the wonders of Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser for myself and it's nothing short of magic. My daughter doesn't have psoriasis but she has suffered from patches of dry skin all over her body ever since she was born, and nothing really seems to touch it. But, lo and behold, a sample of Childs Farm goodies arrived on my doorstep last week in my capacity as a parenting journalist and sure enough my daughter's skin is vastly improved since I started slathering her in it after her bath every evening.
And yes, I've taken to plastering it all over my hands after washing up and have even been using it in place of my usual face cream. Miracle cream? I'm going to have to agree, this time.
