How to keep your little one’s skin moisturised
The winter nights will soon be drawing in and the weather getting colder. The wind, low humidity and cold temperatures are all factors that lead to dry skin and can further irritate sensitive skin and eczema. Here we share our views on how to help minimise irritations this winter:
Watch the temperature change
The winter months can be a particularly testing time for those that suffer from sensitive skin and eczema, the constant change in temperature from the central heating indoors to the bitter winter air can make the skin feel dry and itchy.
You can help reduce flare ups from temperature changes by wrapping up well when you’re going out and wearing gloves, scarves and hats and avoiding hot showers during those winter months so the skin doesn’t need to take time to cool down.
Moisturising should be a vital part of everyone’s skincare, whether you have sensitive skin or not. In the winter it’s even more important to protect the skin from the cold, dry winter air and our Childs Farm Moisturiser is approved for sensitive skin and safe for people who may be prone to eczema.
Get some vitamin D
While the sun comes out less often in the autumn/winter it’s still important to get some vitamin D to help the skin repair itself. Vitamin D supplements can help aid symptoms. For those who are planning a winter get away don’t forget to apply sun cream.
