Spring is here beauties and it’s about to start heating up outside.
With warmer temperatures and flowers blooming everyone is getting ready to be outdoors more than during the Winter season. However, this time of year can create dread for those who suffer from eczema. Don’t let seasonal outbreaks ruin the Spring for you.
Eczema is an inflamed, itchy, red skin rash that tends to occur on the inner part of the elbows, behind the knees, back of the hands, eyelids and face. As the seasons change, eczema skin can become very dry causing it to crack and perspire more, which will aggravate the itching and swelling. For many people living with eczema, spring can be a challenging time. Air-conditioning, sweating, dry heat, humidity, chlorine in pools and pollen are all known triggers for eczema.Fortunately, there are a few things to do this spring to minimize triggers:
- Drink plenty of water to help keep your skin hydrated.
- Avoid prolonged exposure to hot or chlorinated water.
- Use a gentle skin cleanser.
- Keep your skin moisturized.
- Wear loose, cotton clothing.
While there is no cure for eczema, The Butter Bar Skincare’s Oats and Green Tea line is a great treatment for this skin condition.A perfect and pure blend of colloidal oats and green tea are sure to soothe you and give skin a much-needed break.
