Q: I live in a cold weather climate. How can I keep my face from drying?
Those who live in extreme weather areas must change their skin regimen when the weather turns cold. Extremes in weather -- both hot and cold -- can exacerbate some existing skin conditions or even cause new ones. Cold temperatures often mean low humidity, which dries out skin. Bitterly cold winds can also strip moisture from exposed skin.
Use a milder facial cleanser made for sensitive skin, and a heavier moisturizer. Apply a rich moisturizing mask for 5-10 minutes at least twice per week. Avoid long soaks in the tub, don't let the water get too hot. Again, use a mild body wash that is sulfate free. Finally, moisturize as needed throughout the day. You will notice an immediate improvement to the condition of your skin.
Q: I have eczema, what can I do to reduce my flare ups?
The following are easy to follow guidelines that should greatly decrease the severity and frequency of flare-ups, which also may decrease the need for anti-inflammatory medicine. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Eczema is usually dry and itchy, so applying moisturizers as needed to keep the skin moist is part of an effective treatment plan. Frequent moisturizing locks in the skin’s own moisture to prevent dryness and cracking.
1. One of the best ways to lock in moisture is to apply moisturizer after bathing. When bathing, care must be taken to avoid irritating the skin.
2. Limit contact with anything that irritates the skin. Soaps, bubble bath, perfumes, cosmetics, laundry detergents, household cleaners, too much time spent in water, finger paints, gasoline, turpentine, wool, a pet’s fur, juices from meats and fruits, plants, jewelry, and even lotions can irritate sensitive skin. Know what irritates your skin and limit contact with all that does. Avoiding personal-care products that contain alcohol, artificial color or sulfates. Specialized products such as a facial cleanser for sensitive skin will help avoid further flare-ups.
3. Avoid sweating and overheating. The most common triggers of the scratch/itch cycle are sweating and overheating. It is essential to prevent these situations whenever possible.
4. Avoid sudden changes in temperature and humidity. A sudden rise in temperature can cause overheating and sweating. A drop in humidity can dry skin and lead to a flare-up.
5. Grab a cold compress to curb the itch. Scratching makes the condition worse and may puncture skin allowing bacteria to enter and cause an infection. Gently applying a cold compress to the area that itches can reduce inflammation and lessen the desire to scratch.
