If you suffer from the dry, itchy skin condition known as eczema, we may have just found your holy grail skincare products.

Whether you're yet to find something that works for you or if you are trying to put down the steroid creams, The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid toning solution and CeRave's moisturiser might just be your answer

Posting a snap on Reddit, one woman explained how her best friend had cleared up her own 'agonising' with the £6.80 toner and £12 tub of cream in just three days, and the results truly speak for themselves

"So my best friend has suffered with extremely irritating and painful eczema all over her face and body for 27 years. She has tried countless creams and had numerous doctor visits about it," explained the woman.

Before-and-after pictures show the eczema completely cleared up over her face.

The Redditor continued: "I gave her half a bottle of The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% and one of the large CeRave moisturisers in the tub. She used both every morning and evening for 3 days and her skin is the best it's ever looked!"

You can pick up a bottle of the The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid for just £6.80, and tubs of the CeraVe Moisturising Cream are priced around £12 for 340g.

The moisturiser is made for very dry skin with three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid, perfect for giving your skin a moisture boost.

And The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid 7% is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin offering mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. However, the acid could irritate eczema further so always carry out a patch test if you're worried.

Of course, it's worth pointing out that what works for one person with eczema might not work for another, but clearing up the condition with just two products in three days is worth a shot.

The Redditor added: "So happy it worked for her and not remotely bitter that I'm 6 months in with little change."
