Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a common skin condition. Eczema is the name for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become red, itchy and inflamed. It’s a general term for dermatitis, which simply means inflammation of the skin. It is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else.
It may appear as itchy red patch, sometimes, you may have other skin changes along with eczema, such as small raised bumps or hives. It affects men and women equally
You can have eczema can anywhere on your body, but it’s frequently seen:
For many people, the itch is usually only mild, or moderate. But in some cases it can become more severe and you might develop very inflamed skin. At times the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds, which can make your eczema worse. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.”
The kind of eczema you have and what triggers it, is the best starting point to treating and managing it.
According to the National Eczema Association, “It is possible to have more than one type of eczema on your body at the same time. Each form of eczema has its own set of triggers and treatment requirements”.
A Dermatologist can help identify which type or types of eczema you may have and how to treat and prevent flare-ups.
Possible causes of eczema are:
Prepare your skin for harsh transitioning weather conditions by preemptively focusing on protecting your skin NMF barrier.
Avoid ingredients that may further irritate and compromise your skin barrier like alcohols, fragrances and harsh soaps. Itchiness is caused by inflammation and irritation, so choose products and ingredients that are calming and anti-inflammatory.Focus on ingredients that soothe inflammation and repair your skin like ceramides, fatty acids and plant oils.
Look for topical ingredients to nourish and hydrate the skin with anti-inflammatory properties. Such as:
Linoleic (omega 6 and Oleic acids (omega 9) - supportive essential fatty acids that promote healing and provide lipids that are very close to the skin’s own natural lipids. Soothes discomfort and dryness while increasing hydration in the epidermis.
Arnica montana - Anti-inflammatory and heals, it soothes chapped skin and eczema and also speeds healing.
Ceramides - They help to form the skin's barrier and help skin retain moisture. They are lipids, making up to 50% of the skin barrier.
Hyaluronic acid - Hydrates, and prevents trans-epidermal water loss in the NMF.
Niacinamide - Reduces redness from eczema by strengthening the skin’s natural barrier.
Eating anti-inflammatory foods may help lessen or reduce eczema symptoms, because some foods contain properties that have been know to decrease eczema flare-ups. It’s important to know your body and which foods work best for your individual needs.
Fatty fish and healthy fats
Eat fatty fish, such as salmon and herring. Fish oil contains high levels of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Avocados have high levels of oleic acid.Walnuts are high in alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 essential fatty acid,
Foods containing quercetin
Quercetin is a plant-based flavonoid. It helps to give many flowers, fruits, and vegetables their rich color. It’s also a powerful antioxidant and antihistamine. This means it can reduce inflammation as well as levels of histamine in your body.
Foods high in quercetin include:
Such as yogurt. Yogurt contain live cultures that help support a strong immune system. May help reduce flare-ups or allergic reactions.
Probiotic-rich foods include:
naturally fermented pickles
soft cheeses, such as Gouda
Many people who have eczema are also diagnosed with food allergies. However, everyone’s body is the same, discovering your personal food trigger is important to minimize issues with allergies and eczema. Not every person will have issues with the foods listed below,common food allergies associated with eczema include:
Eating certain foods doesn’t appear to cause eczema, although it may trigger a flare-up if you already have the condition. Maintaining an eczema-friendly diet is key to overall condition management.
Try to avoid or limit these foods as much as possible.
Contact dermatitis can cause an itchy rash.
Contact dermatitis is a type of eczema that appears when a person's skin reacts to a certain substance or irritant.
In addition to pruritis, the symptoms of contact dermatitis include a rash, a burning or stinging sensation, redness, and swelling.
Triggers for contact dermatitis on the chest vary among individuals but often include:
People can try to prevent contact dermatitis by identifying and avoiding their triggers. Topical steroids and antihistamines can help relieve symptoms.

You can be assured that you will get the upmost care and attention when you enter A Younger You! Lois is a professional who strives to give you a wonderful experience with expert results. I am a monthly customer and I look forward to each session. I leave with my skin feeling and looking younger. I highly recommend Lois for anyone looking for an Aesthetician who is knowledgeable and caring!

I have visited Lois monthly for at least 10 years now and am so thankful that I found her. I'm 67 years old, work full time and am under constant stress. She's a fanatic about skin - constantly researching products, services and mixing it all with lovely relaxation techniques. I feel wonderful when I finish my facial, and I look so much younger. My friends and clients cannot believe my age - wrinkles? age spots? blocked pores? Nope, don't have any of that! Thank you Lois! You're the best!
My experience with Lois has always been excellent. My skin has visibly changed due to the treatments and products. So pleased with the results!

My sister referred me to Lois, her facials are amazing. They are almost as relaxing as a massage. I finished my treatment series and I'm very happy with my results. I joined her monthly membership program so I can keep seeing her. I recommend her to my friends now.

Lois has been my esthetician for about 20 years. Her service and knowledge is impeccable and I have not been able to find another esthetician that can offer the same. I still contact Lois for any skin issues I may have and she ALWAYS is able to treat and cure the skin issues especially the issues the dermatologists could not resolve.She is the best and puts in alot of time for research to make sure she offer the best products and services to her clients based on the client's skin and symptons.

I went to A Younger You Skin Care for help for my dry skin. Lois, the skin care specialist went out of her way to help me. I was impressed with her knowledge of skin care. Her recommendation of Rhonda Allison products helped my skin. My skin looks better every day. If you want the best skin care advice, go see Lois at A Younger You Skin Care Center.

I knew when I first started getting regular facials with Lois that I would enjoy it as a "treat" for myself and find it relaxing, which it certainly has been, every time! However, what I have been really pleased about is all the comments I have been getting on how nice, smoother, younger, and healthier my skin looks. At least five people in the last month alone have told me that my skin looks great! Thank you, Lois! ----Sharyn
