I don't know about you, but my skin and eczema tend to be dry most of the time, and the problem is only exasperated during the winter or when I travel. Over the years, I have found a few tricks that help me keep my skin feeling its best even when I am traveling or it is cold outside. I have partnered with Remedy Dermatology Series to share three ways to help prevent dry skin and how to incorporate these into my travel-heavy schedule.
1. Use the Right Moisturizer
I love the Remedy Dermatology Series Moisturizing Body Lotion. It has the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance, which only accepts products that have satisfied the criteria for use for those with eczema or sensitive skin conditions. I can speak from experience that it hydrates my eczema without being greasy, which is a huge plus. It is also free of core 80 Allergens, which means that it is free of the ingredients found on the North American 80 Comprehensive Series (NAC80) list of possible allergens, which is great for people with hypersensitive skin like me. It has a great twist nozzle that I can close and put in my suitcase, which makes it perfect for life on the road.
Y'all know I wouldn't share one of my favorite products with you without sharing a great deal. There is a saving opportunity at your local Publix from 11/30/19-12/13/19 for 50% off one 8 oz. bottle of Remedy Dermatology Series Moisturizing Body Lotion! Now for my tips!
2. Drink Water
I know this is one of those things that is common sense, but it really does help. There are many schools of thought about how much water someone should drink in a day, but my goal is always my body weight in ounces. For example, I weigh 120 lbs so I try to drink 120 oz of water a day. If this seems like a big number, break it down over the course of the day and it becomes much more manageable. I am also able to drink more water when it is room temperature instead of chilled. Another helpful tip is to add natural fruit flavoring to break up the monotony.
3. Shower / Bath Water Temperature
Although it is very tempting when it's freezing outside to get in a piping hot shower or bath, it is one of the easiest ways to make dry skin worse. It's is better to take a warm shower instead of hot to keep your skin hydrated. It is also important to follow up with a moisturizing body lotion.
I hope that these tips help you keep your skin well hydrated this winter and travel season!
