Win­ter woes

Pick Me Up! Special - - Yoour Health -

Q My two boys suf­fer ter­ri­bly with eczema and it seems to get worse in the win­ter. How can I help them? Emma, Lon­don A To pre­vent flare-ups with sen­si­tive skin in win­ter, mois­turise, mois­turise, mois­turise! Pre­ven­tion is al­ways the best method when it comes to skin sen­si­tiv­ity. En­sure you use creams in­stead of lo­tions, as the for­mer is more hy­drat­ing for the skin. The more nat­u­ral the in­gre­di­ents the bet­ter, es­pe­cially if you suf­fer from sen­si­tive skin. Re­mem­ber to pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to ex­posed sites, such as the face, lips and hands. And al­ways re­mem­ber to cover up with gloves and a hat! Childs Farm’s mois­turis­ers are full of nat­u­rally de­rived in­gre­di­ents such as shea and co­coa but­ter, and are mild enough to use on eczemaprone skin.
