acids (linoleic and linolenic) and natural Trans-Retinoic acid (a

Children, Dry Skin, and Atopic Eczema.
Children are particularly susceptible to the impact of hot dry air
during the cold winter season. Although parents are often prepared
for the many respiratory infections, colds, and sore throats that
are expected with the approach of Winter, many parents are surprised
when their children's otherwise lovely tender and soft skin begins
to itch, flake and develop areas of dry red patches and rash. The
culprit once again is the temperature and humidity changes that go
along with the winter season but this problem can be controlled and
treated with simple measures.
In it's more severe presentation, dry skin may be referred to as
eczema although this term should be reserved for the times when
particular areas are affected - backs of the knees, elbows, and
behind the ears and under the jaw in the neck creases, with red
scaling patches that are often scratched raw by the suffering child.
Sometimes the condition requires the use of topical steroids and
even oral antihistamines. A little forewarning and management of
these dry skin conditions before they fully develop is not only
cosmetically advisable but may also be medically indicated to
prevent skin infection as a result of repeated scratching.
The routine use of Rose Hip Oil improves the overall condition of
dry skin and reduces the itching. The application of rose hip oil
and the avoidance of typical cleansing soaps is often enough to
control most cases of childhood dry skin.
For children and adults with more severe skin dryness, several other
important recommendations can be useful in getting through the
effects of hot dry indoor air after exposure to cold windy
conditions that together make skin care a challenge.
Avoid excessive bathing. Make baths brief, in warm, not hot, water.
Blot dry with a soft towel, avoiding rubbing the skin. Leave a
slight layer of moisture on the body after toweling and apply a
moisturizing cream or lotion over the slightly damp skin.
Avoid itchy fabrics and harsh detergents. Some synthetics can be as
irritating as wool and should be eliminated particularly from
bedding and sleep clothing.
Dress protectively when braving the cold and cover hands and face
for added skin protection. Reapply rose hip oil after a trip
outdoors and avoid sun damage by using a sun screen even in the
wintertime when snow reflected sunlight can be particularly harsh on
Keep the moisture level up in the home using a cool mist humidifier
and decrease the dry heat level by creating better air circulation.
Drink plenty of fluids to help replenish the losses that occur from
the extreme weather conditions of the season.
