Faced With Eczema? Proven Skin Care Tips

Posted by Kim Beels on

Dry, flaky, itchy, irritated skin...If you suffer from eczema, you know how uncomfortable — even agonizing — it can be to manage the symptoms of chronic skin inflammation.

Though the exact cause of eczema remains unknown, according to the National Eczema Association, researchers suspect that genetics and environmental triggers play a big part. An immune dysfunction can result in a defect in the skin’s moisture barrier making it dryer and more sensitive to irritants. Since a well-known eczema trigger is dryness, excessive cleansing should be avoided.

Based on science and results, Environ’s founder, Dr. Des Fernandes, is on a lifelong mission to help heal and nurture the look of skin with the highest quality of proven ingredients. Here are a few research-backed tips for improving the look of eczema and encouraging your skin’s natural radiance.

Use A Gentle Cleanser
When washing your face and body, stick with a mild, gentle cleanser that’s free from harsh dyes and perfumes, which can irritate sensitive skin. There are gentle cleansers for every skin type imaginable. Look for products containing special ingredients that assist in enhancing the effects of the waterproofing function of the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Products packed with moisturizers and emollients will help moisturize the skin while cleansing, leaving a velvety-soft feeling to your skin with every wash.

Don’t Dry Out Your Skin
Keep the water temperature luke-warm, easy does it, and don’t spend too long in the shower. Over-washing skin is a common mistake in skin care. We all understand the inclination to scrub because we associate clean skin with healthy skin, but you can’t wash eczema away. And you certainly don’t want to dry out your skin by completely stripping away your body’s natural oils.

Moisturize Frequently
It’s no secret that applying moisturizer immediately improves the look of dry, flaky skin, but there’s a lot more to it than just looks! According to the National Eczema Association, keeping your skin moisturized is one of the most important things you can do to help control your eczema symptoms. Select a moisturizer that is carefully formulated to protect, repair, and maintain skin’s healthy acid mantle levels. Your goal should be to moisturizer at least twice daily.
Environ stockists will help you select the moisturizer that suits your unique complexion needs, but a few popular formulations from the Focus Care Moisture+ range include Vita-Complex Super Moisturiser, Vita-Antioxidant Hydrating Oil Capsules, and HA Intensive Hydrating Serum.

Until there’s a cure, working to keep your eczema symptoms under control is key, and we are eager to help! Our goal at Environ is to help you love the skin you’re in! To find an Environ stockist near you, call 877.337.6227 today.
