Eczema Skincare Tips for Winter

Posted by Futureproof Inc on

Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a skin condition that causes a dry, itchy rash on the top of the skin (Healthline). According to this article from the National Eczema Society, winter can be especially difficult for those suffering from eczema due to flares from the low humidity, cold exposure and can even be triggered by colds and flus.

Tips for avoiding and treating eczema flare-ups in winter

  1. Get a Humidifier: Dry air can take a toll on skin, so invest in a humidifier to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.

  1. Use Sunscreen: Yes, even in winter you should use sunscreen! The sun’s rays can still cause damage and aggravate your delicate skin.

  1. Exfoliate Regularly: gently exfoliate on a regular basis to remove the dead skin cells and help moisturizing formulas like our Eczema Relief products really soak in and work their healing magic.

  1. Heavily Moisturize: Your regular moisturizer may not cut it during the winter months, so switch to a heavier one that is specifically designed for colder weather. We recommend applying our signature formula in the Eczema Jar at least twice a day.

  • Be Prepared: Skin doesn’t dry out on a regular schedule and flares can happen at any time. Make sure you have a trusted moisturizer on hand at all times. Our easy application Eczema Stick is perfect to toss in your purse, diaper bag or backpack so you always have access to some relief!

  • Winter can be so isolating especially when you’re dealing with a recurrent skin condition. Please remember if you’re suffering from eczema - you’re not alone!
