Moisturizing is an important part of caring and maintaining the health of the skin. Hydrating the skin leaves the skin strong, supple, and smooth, helping strengthen its barrier function. It is of special significance for the winter months when the air becomes cold and arid. Weather has an important impact on moisture levels in the skin, and moisturizers can help your skin through the dry seasons.
Moisturizers can be an important part of an eczema patient’s treatment. People with dry skin or eczema need extra help to keep their skin’s hydration levels adequate, and moisturizers can help the skin in three ways: Attract moisture to the top layers of the skin, seal in existing moisture reducing lost moisture through evaporation, and by lubricating the surface of the skin and filling in cracks and helping make the skin feel more supple.
