Even the celebrities aren't immune to the skin condition, with Adele, Kate Middleton and Brad Pitt among sufferers.
Sadly, you can't cure it completely, but there are ways to keep it under control.
Whether you have eczema on your face, hands or body, here are the best beauty products for you to try now.
Best moisturiser for eczema (normal to dry skin)
Vichy's Aqualia Rich Pot contains Activ Hyaluronine™, a combination of hyaluronic acid and lipidure, to infuse lasting moisture and soothe irritated skin. Basically a tall glass of water for your skin.
Best moisturiser for eczema (combination skin)
The only thing worse than eczema prone skin is skin that is prone to both eczema and pimples. Vichy's Normaderm Total Mat paraben-free cream is designed to reduce all sources of shine (including excess sebum) without irritating your skin.
Best makeup remover for eczema
The eternal problem of cleansing your skin thoroughly without stripping it of its moisture. Lucky for us, Darphin has the solution with their Intral range.
The potent mix of polysaccharide, chamomile and howthorn extracts, removes make-up and impurities while leaving your skin soft. Don't forget the moisturiser though!
Best shower gel for Eczema
Itchy skin is the bane of eczema-sufferers' life. Well Avène's XeraCalm A.D. means you will itch no more.
Packed full of the brand's cult thermal water to soothe, and I-modula to reduce itching and redness, this cleansing oil ensures your skin is clean and hydrated. There is a minimal amount of ingredients to minimise the risk of allergies. You'll fine no nasties in this!
Best body lotion for eczema
Another French cult beauty brand, Bioderma have beauty bloggers and makeup artists fighting over their miscellar water.
We love their skincare range too, and the Bioderma Atodern PP Baume is a godsend for dry and flaky skin. The emollient intensely hydrates your skin and repairs it by stimulating cutaneous barrier. Fancy.
Best hand cream for eczema
There's a reason Weleda's skin food has been a handbag essential for women with dry skin since 1926.
This little tube of cream is packed full of natural ingredients such as organic sunflower seed oil, extracts of wild pansy, chamomile, calendula and revitalising rosemary to intensely moisturise the skin. We like to use it on our hands, though this all-rounder can be used on feet and elbows too.
