Today was a hot day! I noticed my skin seemed drier today as a result, so I got out my heavy duty lotion and my skin just soaked it up. I didn’t need an eczema treatment, but just needed something to moisturize my thirsty skin. It felt much smoother and better after an application of a good moisturizing lotion, well actually it was a cream. I think that’s going to be needed on a daily basis for sure!
Now that it’s summertime, it’s important to take extra care of our skin. For those people who are using a treatment for eczema, being in the sun might actually make their eczema worse. For most people, being in the sun is good in moderation during the early morning or late afternoon, but too much sun or even thirty minutes of sun during the hottest part of the day can cause sunburn. Be sure to wear sunscreen and plan outside activities in order to prevent sunburn.
