Eczema sufferers see flare-ups all year long, but fall and winter throw some extra eczema triggers into the mix. If you’re seeing increased eczema during colder months, follow our simple eczema tips for keeping your skin healthy and comfortable all season long.
Heaters and hot water can worsen eczema flare-ups. Whether you’re cranking up the heat in your car or using a space heater under your desk, or you’re warming up in a hot shower, excessive heat will over-dry the skin and can make the itching, burning, and dryness of eczema even worse.
When it comes to bathing, think tepid rather than hot. It may not provide that immediate sense of warm comfort, but your skin will be so much more comfortable that it’s worth the tradeoff. Likewise, use heavier clothing and blankets instead of cranking the heat. Not only will your skin feel better, but you’ll save on utilities costs!
Your natural thirst helps you meet your water intake goals during spring and summer, but it’s just as important to meet your daily water goals during cooler months—especially if you have dry skin that’s prone to eczema.
It’s wise to get at least 64-ounces of water per day. You can also hydrate with other liquids like tea, milk, juice, and even coffee, but nothing does the trick for your body and skin just like pure H2O.
