- Product placement -
Skin affected by compression requires intensive care and attention. The more severe the disease, the less moisture the skin can store; it becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. So far, I've always thought that it was important to just groom. However, through research on the subject, I have been informed that the normal products contain ingredients that attack and damage the compression fabric. This is why the manufacturers sell care series specially made for compression therapy in order to protect both skin and stocking with high-quality active ingredients.
Ingredients of medi care products
Witch Hazel Virginia:
The active ingredient of this medicinal plant is known to have a vascular sealing effect.
The medicinal plant that strengthens the vascular wall gives the venous system its elasticity.
Pleasantly cools and refreshes.
The oil from the jojoba plant soothes and regenerates the skin. Has an antimicrobial effect (ie inhibits the growth of bacteria).
The rich and healing active ingredient binds moisture. This way, even extremely dry skin becomes smooth and supple again.
The anti-inflammatory power of hops soothes the skin and has an antimicrobial effect (i.e. inhibits the growth of bacteria).
Has anti-inflammatory and wound healing effects.
Provides moisture and promotes wound healing.
Thanks to its naturally gentle peeling function, the feet become soft and supple.
I tested the medi care products for a month and would like to share my experiences with you.
For this I use the article description from medi and my personal impression at the end of the product.
medi day - Care gel for the day
- Reduces the feeling of tension and sensitivity of the skin.
- Horse chestnut for firm vessel walls, menthol has a refreshing effect and witch hazel stabilizes the tissue structure.
- Please use medi day immediately before putting on the compression stockings and the day can begin!
For me, the medi day gel was unfortunately not really practical. I can very well imagine the refreshing effect for the summer, but I find it uncomfortable for the autumn and therefore quickly switched to medi soft. In general, however, it is the case with both products that I had problems getting dressed afterwards and therefore recommend that you apply the care about 10 minutes beforehand.
When I asked whether the effect was desired, medi replied that the gel was designed in such a way that it is applied and massaged in very sparingly. Maybe I applied too much product and thus had this experience.
medi night - Night care cream
- Supports the regeneration of stressed skin.
- With jojoba oil - has a calming effect on the top layer of the skin.
- medi night is applied after taking off the compression stockings - for a restful night.
Absolutely wonderful result! After the liposuctions, my skin was a single dandruff monster. Wearing the compression day and night has taken its toll. But as soon as I put on the night cream, the skin has recovered in no time and is shiny with moisture. Great result.
medifresh - Cooling spray
- Menthol makes your skin feel cool.
- Easy to use: spray onto the stocking at any time and enjoy the beneficial effects immediately.
As it is autumn, as I said, I use the spray for recovery after exercise. The effect is absolutely satisfactory and helps to freshen up the skin a little after exertion. In summer and on vacation it is certainly a similar benefit.
medisoft - Gentle cream foam
- Horse chestnut strengthens the vascular wall and urea (10%) makes your skin smooth and supple.
- The foam is absorbed quickly and completely.
- Gives compression stockings with adhesive tape additional support.
- Simply apply in the morning or in the evening and pamper the skin with extra moisture.
After a while I used the pleasant foam instead of the day gel and got along really well with it. I really had the feeling that the tights held better and the skin was less itchy. I especially like the consistency of the foam, because it doesn't miss anything and can be rubbed in well.
medi clean - The special hand detergent
medi CLEAN is tailored to the mediven compression stocking.
The gentle care for daily washing or when no washing machine is available.
When I was out on the weekends, I took medi clean with me. It is definitely a better alternative if you are traveling for a long time and have to wash the compression in the sink. It is quite an effort, but a good solution. It is a little wasteful for daily washing, as other items of clothing are also washed in my machine.
medi fix - No more slipping
I was very skeptical when I read this. Adhesive lotion for the adhesive tape, how should that work? But believe it or not, it worked! The lotion is applied to the places where the adhesive tape will lie and it is pressed against the skin. After a few seconds everything is done and I was amazed how well and how long the effect lasted. You could still feel the effect even after two sounds. I found it very pleasant, especially for sport, and will definitely continue to use it. An absolute insider tip!
medi spot ex - The other way of removing stains
The stain fluid can be used to loosen shoe wear on the heel and toe of the mediven compression stocking before washing.
I hardly have any shoes on which to test the promised effect, but in a few places on the heel I got to try it and think it works well. Above all, it fits well in the handbag. So if you have a problem pair of shoes, this is your new companion!
Conclusion - medi care products
After a month of intensive trial skincare, I can say that the night cream is my absolute favorite when it comes to direct skin care. As an everyday companion, I don't want to want to be without medi fix anymore. Depending on your personal characteristics, I would choose the right product, how much medi care products you have to use, should you determine the care intensity of your skin. Loud average one cannot overcare the skin, which was my concern first. But especially in autumn and winter, when the skin needs a lot of care, you are certainly good with them average-Products served.
You can buy the care range in pharmacies and medical supply stores. Just ask for samples the next time, then you can get an idea of the quality.
Experience here more about medi care products. Are you looking for alternatives? Here we tested the care from Juzo.
In addition to lip / lymphedema, I also have neurodermatitis. When I got my first knee socks I had problems with the silicone nubs on the adhesive edge. I always had a red border on my leg even if I wasn't on the compression for 2 days. The second pair of knee socks didn't have these knobs and since then the red border has disappeared even if I still wear the old pair. Is the Medi care range also for atopic dermatitis? I don't want to buy expensive products if I can't stand them.
All the best
