Living in New York City you always have to deal with the winter blues. The winters feel very long and always very cold. It also wreaks havoc on my daughter's skin. They dry up extremely fast and once that happens, my daughter's start scratching. With the scratching and the irriating itch, ezcema is no fun for them! Being indoors in the winter causes dry skin from the increased dry air during the winter. Using Eurcerin's Baby Line during the winter helps keep my duaghter's skin in check. It's the number one brand recommended by pediatricians for baby's skin during the wintertime. Here's five tips I stick by when it comes to keeping my daughter's eczema in check:
I make sure my girls wear 100% organic cotton clothing because other types of clothing with chemicals end up making my daughters itchy and scratchy, which only makes their eczema worse. Wearing 100% organic cotton helps prevent any flare-ups, but if it does come I make sure I have the Eurcerin Eczema Instant Therapy Creme in handy. It instantly calms and relieves minor skin irrations and itching if there are any flare-ups whether it's wearing certain clothes that they're sensitive too or just constant scratching.
I only use detergents that are fragrance free, dye-free, and hypoallergenic. I only use liquids over powder so there is less chance of residue (which might react with my daughter's sensitive skin) and I also do an extra rinse in the washing machine just to make sure all the detergent is gone. This decreases the chance of any of my daughter's clothes causing any itchiness or sensitivity after being washed.
One of the things I like to do if my girls have to go out and play in the winter is I put lotion on their hands, face, and neck. Those are the parts that are sometimes not covered and I want to make sure there is some sort of hydration and protection from the outside. For that, I use Eurcerin's Baby Lotion which has Pro-Vitamin B5 & Natural Shea Butter which hydrates and soothes my girl's skin. I put it on a few times a day just to make sure their skin is always protected from the outside.
I always have a humidifier in my daughters room. In the winters, their room can get especially dry while they're sleeping because of the increased heat. A humidifier helps in keeping their room higher in moisture levels reducing dryness and itchiness
Most important for my girls is always after they take a bath or a shower in the winter (but works in all seasons too!) I would use Eucerin Baby Eczema Relief Body Creme on their skin right away, especially the areas where the eczema is strongest. Usually after a shower, my girl's skin gets dry very fast and it's important to put the body creme right away. It comes formulated with natural oatmeal which is clinically proven to significantly help hydrate and sooth any irritated skin. It's fragrance, dye, and steroid free and the natural formula is what helps sooth any sensitive red skin.
It's important to rely on a brand that I know will do two things - protect and treat my daughter's ezcema flare-ups and itchy dry skin and is safe to use. All Eucerin Baby products are hypoallergenic and free of paraben, dyes, drying alcohols, and fragrance. I always trust them to be the solution to my daughters ezcema and the protector to my daughter's delicate skin.
