It’s time to welcome fall in all its glory: the changing color of the leaves, cooler temps and the the beginning of sweater weather. Even piling on the layers can’t hide the discomfort and irritation associated with eczema. October is National Eczema Awareness Month. It’s time to learn about eczema causes, symptoms and best treatments options. This autumn, don’t let dry and flaky skin get you down. Instead reach for AVEENO® Eczema Therapy products (for adult and baby), which are clinically proven to soothe and heal irritated skin.
Read on to learn Dr. Kenneth Beer‘s do’s, don’ts and product picks for the 30+ million people in the U.S. suffering from eczema. Because healthy skin is always a top priority, no matter what time of year it is.
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a chronic skin disorder produced by inflammation that causes skin to become itchy, red and dry — sometimes even cracked and leathery.
What Triggers Eczema?
Sudden changes in temperature, extreme cold/dry climates, heat, stress and sweat can trigger eczema symptoms, as can heredity factors, airborne/food allergens and irritants. At the first sign of symptoms, it is important to visit your dermatologist so that he/she can determine the proper treatment options based on your individual symptoms.
How to Treat Eczema
The best way to care for dry and flaky skin is to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Dr. Kenneth Beer notes that it’s important to use hydrating body lotions that are free of irritants and fragrance AND to use fragrance-free laundry detergent when washing your clothes, sheets and towels .
Look for moisturizers with humectants (which attract and retain moisture), ceramides (an essential lipid that helps replenish and maintain the skin’s protective barrier) and colloidal oatmeal (which helps to relieves dry, itchy, irritated skin due to eczema) — 3 ingredients found in AVEENO® Eczema Therapy products (for adult and baby). This line of creams and bath treatments is clinically shown to soothe eczema symptoms. They are from a dermatologist and pediatrician recommended brand and have even been awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance.
These soothing products utilize the best ingredients in nature to care for the 4 symptoms of eczema – itch, roughness, dryness, irritation – and when used as a regimen help break the cycle of irritated skin. This collection features ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, the #1 natural ingredient most recommended by dermatologist to effectively relieve the itch associated with minor skin irritations including eczema.
NEW! AVEENO® Eczema Therapy Hand Cream: Steroid-free, fragrance-free and non-greasy. In a three-week clinical study, 90% of participants reported that their hands experienced immediate relief from itch, roughness, dryness and irritation.
