Is your skin Spring ready?

I am so sick of winter! Here it is the middle of March and we are still waiting for what I hope is our last winter storm.
This is a great time to get your skin ready for warmer weather!

How to age gracefully


It is a sad reality that we live in a youth obsessed world. If you don't agree, just take a look at the many  actors who have chosen to go under the knife in an attempt to hold on to their youth. Sure,we want to look our best but somewhere along the way,our best has come to mean looking young, as opposed to being and feeling youthful. I think there is a big difference between the two. Wanting to look young is how I would describe a certain entertainer in her fifties who shall remain nameless who seems to want to look the same age as her daughter.

If you suffer from seasonaleczemalike I do, you are probably beginning to experience some symptoms now that summer is coming to an end.I live in the North lands and summer time is the one time of year when I am not obsessing about my dry eczema skin. I get a free pass. I can put away all the heavy butters and cream and just go au naturelle. Sometimes I can get a little dry, especially after swimming, but a quick shower and a little of myoilis enough.

Some of you have been following my eczema posts, thank you by the way, so you already know that there  are any  number of reasons why you experience eczema flare-ups.

The best anti oxidants to include in your summer skin care regimen

We are about half way through the summer but it is not too late to protect yourskinfrom harmful UVA/UVB rays.
Research has shown that sunscreen alone is not enough to protect yourskinfrom UV damage.
You still want to use a good broad spectrum sunscreen. Many contain antioxidants, however they are generally not enough to boost the level of protection you get from a sunscreen. 
To maximize your sun protection, it is a good idea to include antioxidants in your diet and topically on your skin.
Two well researched and effective  antioxidants you want to look for are 

Face oil serums

For some people face oils may seem like an unusual choice to use as a moisturizer, particularly if you have oily skin.  If you are one of those people, obviously you havent seen any of the many articles about the benefits of face oils.
The fact is that face oils are a great option if you are in the market for a natural skin care product.
They dont contain any water, so you dont have to worry about preservatives, artificial or otherwise. Many are made with pure, organic oils, so you dont have to worry about artificial additives and most importantly, the right oil can do wonders for your skin!

Eczema: Managing eczema in the summer-part 2

There are some basic common sense options for managing summer time eczema. 
Flare-ups can occur as a result of perspiration. In hot humid temperatures, the human body loses the ability to absorb sweat. The salt  in your sweat can make you itchy. If you find that getting sweaty irritates your skin, make sure to take a bath or shower soon after vigorous activities to wash off the sweat.  Bathing is also important because it helps to wash away bacteria that can otherwise infect your skin if you have broken skin or blisters.

Eczema: Managing eczema in the summer-part 1

For some eczema sufferers, summer time can bring a welcome respite from symptoms particularly for people who live in areas where there is a significant change in temperature. However, for  others, summer heat can bring on  a whole new set of triggers. The fact is climate is only one of the many reasons people have eczema. Eczema sufferers can be found in all climates.
Back to managing summer eczema.
The heat summer weather brings makes you perspire more and that added combination of salt and moisture can irritate skin causing eczema sufferers to break out in a rash.

Age proof your eyes-Fine lines, crow's feet and crepey skin

In last part of the "Age proofing your eyes"  blogs, we will talk about fine lines and wrinkles.
Aging causes a breakdown in collagen and elastin the substances that keep your skin full and wrinkle free.
 A lifetime of smiling and  frowning, not to mention  squinting against the sun, are the primary reasons that lines and wrinkles form around the eyes. I may be alone in this thinking, but not being able express joy or emotion in general  just to avoid the very natural signs of aging and let's face it, life, is unacceptable.

Age proof your eyes-Sunken eye sockets

If you have been reading my other posts about age proofing your eyes you are aware that the aging process plays a large part in the changes that affect the skin around your eyes.
Just like the weakening of connective tissue can cause puffiness or under eye bags, the weakening of connective tissues can also cause sunken eyes-that hollowed out look around the eyes due to fat loss or a shift in the  fat under the eyes.

Unlike other aging processes, this particular condition is probably the hardest one to resolve at home.

Age proof your eyes-Puffy eyes and under eye bags

Puffy eyes and under eye bags can not only make you look tired and worn out they can make you look a lot older than you are.
There are a number of reasons why you develop puffy eyes or under eye bags. Certainly genetic factors can play a part. Also, as we age, the skin's connective tissues weaken causing the fat pads under the eyes to slip out of place and bulge, creating sagging bags under the eyes. 
Other causes of under eye puffiness are things like lymphatic fluid build-up either from allergies, sinus congestion, too little sleep or too much salt.
