Managing Hand Eczema: Tips for Over Washing & Winter Relief

As the winter chill sets in, so does the threat of eczema flare-ups, particularly on the hands. Over hand washing, coupled with the dry air, can exacerbate symptoms, leaving your hands red, itchy, and inflamed. Understanding what eczema is, its causes, and how to manage it effectively is crucial for finding relief. In this blog post, we delve into the world of hand eczema, providing insights into its nature, causes, and practical tips for soothing and preventing flare-ups. Additionally, we’ll highlight Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics’ products tailored to address the unique needs of eczema-prone skin.

Understanding Hand Eczema:

Hand eczema, characterized by red, rough, and inflamed patches, is a common manifestation of eczema. While eczema encompasses various skin conditions, such as atopic and contact dermatitis, hand eczema often arises from factors like frequent hand washing, exposure to harsh chemicals, and cold, dry weather conditions, typical during winter.

Causes of Hand Eczema:

Hand eczema can be triggered by a myriad of factors, with over hand washing being a primary culprit, especially in the current climate of heightened hygiene practices. The constant exposure to water and harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation. Moreover, cold temperatures further aggravate the condition by robbing the skin of its moisture.

Avoid Triggers: Identify and avoid triggers that exacerbate your hand eczema, such as harsh detergents, fragranced products, and extreme temperatures.
