Combat dry skin with hydration



If your eczema flares-up or you experience the irritating effects from dry skin during the winter season, the key to finding relief is to keep your skin well hydrated throughout the day. Regular application of a suitable moisturizer is essential for improving the condition of your skin and preventing itching, scratching, inflammation, and infection. Consider putting some moisture back into the air by using a humidifier in your home or office to counteract the drying effects of the indoor heat.

The hot dry air produced by the furnace can also cause your skin to feel especially uncomfortable and worsen already irritated skin. Look for moisturizers with natural anti-inflammatory agents, such as aloe vera and chamomile, as well as other ingredients like vitamin E to calm the skin and restore hydration. Regular moisturization will minimize the drying effects of extreme indoor and outdoor conditions. Oil or cream based formulations are more effective for severely dry skin.
