How to ease the symptoms of eczema

When looking at how to ease the symptoms of eczema it’s important to start by understanding our skin a little better. The skin is a complex barrier that protects us from the elements, regulates our temperature, gives our skin tone and allows us to touch and feel hot and cold. It is strong yet sensitive, easily affected by irritation or broken with a scratch.

Cold and drier weather can adversely affect this defensive boundary. For most of us, this just means our skin becomes drier and we may need to moisturize more often, but the effects of this temperature shift can be worse for people with skin conditions, such as eczema.
