Worried about back to school skin flare ups?


From last week onwards, schools across the UK have started filling with children cautiously starting back at school. Some will be beginning reception, others returning after months of homeschooling. 


Alongside the anticipation, comes some trepidation. In fact, research conducted by leading children’s toiletries brand Childs Farm shows that over half of parents (54%) are anxious about their child/children’s return to school’.


One of the top three concerns amongst parents is the effect that products provided at school for handwashing and sanitising will have on their little ones’ hands’.*


Many parents have reported how terribly painful and dry their childrens’ hands became when last at school, as a result of the rigorous but necessary increased hygiene requirements. In fact, 81% of parents reported their children experienced dry skin, 58% saw cracked skin and 24% acknowledged a flare-up of a previous skin condition, such as eczema, due to the increase.
