Warning: Dry Winter Months Increase Eczema Risk for Adults and Young Children

Beverly Hills, CA In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, scientists increasingly believe that environmental factors, such as bathing, pollutants and indoor heating, can disrupt the skin’s ability to keep moisture in and allergens and microbes out. A weakened skin barrier – the outermost layer – allows outside irritants to penetrate the skin and spark an immune-system response. Other research has found that genetic variations in some eczema patients also can compromise the skin barrier.

This condition not only affects adults, but young children as well. Ten to twenty percent of children are diagnosed with eczema, a chronic skin condition that causes patches of dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. Experts recommend less frequent baths and daily moisturizing to keep eczema at bay.

Recently, The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development participated in a study showing that an ineffective skin barrier may lead to dry skin conditions including eczema. What one needs to look for is a unique natural skin care product designed to hydrate and work with the skin to strengthen its own natural barrier defense.

A new dry skin treatment, Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, has been found to help strengthen your skin’s natural barriers to toxins and daily abrasives. Skin MD Natural has also been found to reduce dry skin irritation and significantly helps in the healing process where eczema is concerned. At 93% natural ingredients, Skin MD Natural is among the highest echelon of products based on the percentage of natural ingredients.

“With the use of Skin MD Natural we get faster results and the patient has to use less medication. Hands down a shielding lotion works better than any conventional lotion,” explains Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist of Newport Beach California.
