Last winter my son’s skin started to dry out and was no longer baby soft and smooth. Patches of dry, itchy, red, inflamed skin started to appear on his back and face. The doctor told me he was in the beginning stages of seasonal eczema! Luckily we caught it early and it was quickly taken care of. If you aren’t familiar with eczema, it’s a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy skin and visible skin rash. In other words… not fun! Eczema isn’t uncommon though. It is estimated that it affects nearly 35 million Americans. That’s 1-3% of adults, and 10-20% of children. Seventy percent of cases start in children younger than 5 years old, which explains why my then 8 month old was starting to suffer from a condition that no one else in the family had experienced before. I was shocked to learn that about 60% of infants who have eczema continue to have one or more symptoms in adulthood.
Winter is quickly approaching again, but this time my family is prepared with NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™! We are huge fans of NEOSPORIN in this household as they are the #1 Doctor recommended brand of over-the-counter topical antibiotic ointments! This new line of “essential” skin care products is designed for specifically for people with eczema. Products include a Daily Moisturizing Cream, Daily Body Wash, and Anti-Itch Cream. There is a unique RELIPID™ formula in each product, which contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend to help retain moisture in the skin. This will produce a more radiant and healthy look.
I love that the ECZEMA ESSENTIALS™ Daily Moisturizing Cream is gentle enough for the whole family to use daily. It has been clinically shown to restore visibly healthier skin in 3 days. This cream is amazing in that it it doesn’t just reliece the dryness and itch, but also helps strengthen and restore our skin cell’s natrual barrier function to protect the skin. Allergies? No problem as this cream is fragrance-free and steroid-free.
The MOISTURE ESSENTIALS™ Daily Body Wash is proven gentle and non-irritating even on eczema-prone skin, as it effectively cleanses even the most sensitive skin. The wash contains gentle moisturizers and is safe for daily use by the whole family.
As for the ECZEMA ESSENTIALS™ Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream, it contains a dual-action formula to provide fast relief of itch flare-ups due to eczema while it moisturizes to restore visibly healthier skin. Better yet, this cream is fragrance-free and does not contain antibiotics. It helps reduce the appearance of flaky and red skin.
Tips For Dealing with Dry Skin in the Winter
- Keep the skin warm and protected when outside
- Try a thick, protective moisturizer on the exposed skin to prevent windburn
- Consider talking to your doctor about supplementing vitamin D during the winter months as many people are deficient and this may play a role in eczema
- Consider getting a humidifier for bedrooms to help add moisture to the dry air
- Continue your regular skincare routine with regular bathing and moisturizing, as well as using topical medications when needed
