Women’s Health Magazine featured a very informative article about preventing eczema from turning into that itch-scratch-rash cycle, during the cooler Fall and Winter months.

Here are a few tips –

  1. Moisturize! Choose a formula that’s have hydrating ingredients such as shea butter. Don’t even think about picking up a scented formula and use mild soap and detergent.
  2. Avoid hot showers on a chilly day. This is definitely a hard one, but the hot water strips your skin of the natural oils, thus making it drier.
  3. Wear breathable fabrics. No wool, fleece or anything else that traps moisture and heat.
  4. SPF – during the Fall and Winter months many underestimate the strength of the sun. You can still get skin damage or even a sunburn weather the sun is shining or not. Its best to protect your skin at all costs.
  5. Humidifier! A must during the harsh winter months (if you live in a colder climate). This will help with add moisture to your skin and the air.
