My daughter’s skin is dry from the summer sun. She suffers from eczema  and while winter brings the wear of indoor heating and cold air, the heat of the sun can also provide some damage.  We are diligent about applying sunscreen, but she can still react to the exposure. Plus, there is the damage to that tough, but still tender, skin on her toesies. Mine too! Walking in flip-flops can be really damaging to your skin, not to mention all that barefoot trudging through the sand. And faces often take the worst of that hot sun! We spent our summer days soaking up as much sun as possible! But now we want to make sure we nurture our skin, the right way.

How do you care for your post-summer skin? Here are a few tips we are trying in order to cope with some dry skin, and head into winter with the best hope of heading off eczema.

1. Get into a routine.

Like everything with kids, getting into a routine makes things easier! Make moisturizing a part of your routine and commit to doing it everyday. Your body needs this moisture, and hers to. And just because the grey days are coming, you still need sunscreen each day, as do your children. We’ve talked about CeraVe® before; it offers an AM lotion, CeraVe® AM Facial Moisturizer Lotion, with sunscreen (an SPF of 30), and it is easy to wear under make-up. It’s specifically designed to be worn during the day and with topical acne, rosacea or eczema treatments.

A daily regimen of cleansing, try CeraVe®’s Foaming Facial Cleander with a barrier building formula to help restore the skin’s natural ability to protect, and moisturizing your skin helps it to repair and replenish. A product like CeraVe®, which comes in a PM formula as well (CeraVe® PM Facial Moisturizer Lotion), protects the skin barrier to leave the skin clean and healthy. It has a “barrier building” formula to restore the skin’s natural ability to protect.

2. Know When to Apply Moisturizer.

The best time to apply a moisturizer, whether to the face or the body, is right after a bath or shower when you towel off, or wrangle your little one into a towel, and the skin is still slightly damp. This best traps in moisture. You can try an oil (like coconut or sweet almond oil) or cream on you and your little one. For tired, worn out toes, pour on the moisturizer then enjoy the chill of fall with some cozy socks on for bed.

3. Stay committed.

Dry skin and skin conditions don’t clear up overnight so staying committed to regularly caring for your skin is important. The CeraVe® AM Facial Moisturizer Lotion and the CeraVe® PM Facial Moisturizer Lotion are so convenient because they take all of the guesswork out of how to care for your skin. They can be used on your child’s skin as well, as can the CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream, perfect for skin with eczema. Cleansing your skin is just as important. Pair the moisturizers with CeraVe® Foaming Facial Cleanser or Hydrating Cleanserand remember...commitment and time will really repair sun “kissed” dried out, allergy-prone skin. It’s easy to find these Cerave® products at all major drug, grocery and mass retailers so make sure you check them out the next time you head out to the store.
