5 Techniques for Taking Care of Eczema

Eczema is a disease of the skin that affects one in twelve adults in the USA. The condition causes symptoms such as itching, dehydration of the skin and risk of infection, which may result in blistering, rashes and weeping sores. The condition can be frustratingly debilitating for those who suffer with it and going about everyday life is made far more difficult by having to endure constant irritation. Unfortunately, there is no definitive cure for eczema, but there are a few ways you can make your life easier and also reduce risk of breakouts, as described in the useful guide below.

Keep the skin moisturized

Ensuring your skin is well moisturized is one of the best ways to keep your eczema flare-ups to a minimum. Even when it’s not itchy, topping up your moisturizer regularly will prevent your condition reaching its peak. For optimum relief, store the bottle of moisturizer in the fridge to cool down the burning sensation as soon as you experience a flare-up.

Shower regularly

It’s always been believed that showering on a regular basis can play havoc with skin conditions, but lukewarm water can help soothe and hydrate the skin and prevent outbreaks occurring. Providing you apply moisturizer as soon as you dry off, you should start to notice a positive difference in your skin health.

See a dermatologist

There may be some instances when your flare-ups are so out of control, that you’re having trouble going about your normal routine. In such instances, it is advised to seek the professional help of a dermatologist. Dermatologists are specialists in treating and diagnosing conditions of the skin and can give expert advice on how to manage your personal case. If you are looking for a specialist Dermatologist Summit to assist with your case, Soma Skin & Laser would be a suitable institution to research.

Wear cotton clothing

You may not pay much attention to the type of clothing you wear, but your safest bet would be to wear pure cotton only. Cotton is both soft and comfortable and allows the skin to breathe, whereas fabrics such as wool and linen should be avoided at all costs.

Manage your stress levels

Stress can play a big part in eczema breakouts; however, it can be very hard to manage and deal with when it impacts your emotional state. When you tense up with anxiety, your body has the intention of protecting the skin by causing breakouts.

There are a number of strategies that can help keep your stress levels down:

• Relax: You should aim to relax by engaging in meditation, yoga or even pass the time doodling in an adult coloring book.

• Exercise: Keeping yourself active is one of the key tactics of reducing stress levels, but if sweat is one of the major triggers, be sure to take a shower as soon as you’re done.

• Get enough sleep: It’s not always easy to have a full night’s sleep when you’re constantly itching, but sufficient snooze time will certainly make you feel a lot less stressed the following day. If your condition worsens at night, you could take an antihistamine to calm down your symptoms before bed.

American Apparel Fall 2018 Collection

American Apparel announces the debut of its Fall 2018 Collection. With a curated selection of brand new arrivals and returning iconic favorites, the collection includes an array of denim, tees, leggings, skirts, hoodies, and outerwear in a wide range of colors and prints, available exclusively at AmericanApparel.com.

Khairan Majid, American Apparel’s head of merchandising, says the collection “offers an inclusive and refreshing take on fashion basics with longevity. We wanted to break down barriers with gender-neutral silhouettes and a wider size range. The warm, neutral color palette and beautiful luxe fabrics elevate this range, while still keeping the price point accessible.”

The season’s offerings include the anticipated return of the Riding Pant. This highly-coveted style is a high-waist silhouette with the perfect amount of stretch, now with an updated waistband and improved fit. Available in Black, Navy, Silver Birch, and Lieutenant, the Riding Pant retails at $68.00 with sizing from XS to XXL.

Another returning favorite for fall is the bestselling Tennis Skirt, an American Apparel icon and back-to-school essential. This pleated skirt is rendered in lightweight Gabardine polyester, with a wide range of colorways including classic plaid, retailing at $48.00.

The season welcomes the arrival of American Apparel’s first-ever outerwear collection, beginning with a lightweight, year-round Trench Coat – the brand’s interpretation of the classic English silhouette. The Trench Coat is available in Black, Vintage Khaki, navy, Lieutenant, Black/Navy, and Lieutenant/Mauve, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL, retailing at $98.00. Also on the outerwear docket: a Bomber Jacket, with reversible construction for a modern update, retailing at $118.00 in Black/Navy and Lieutenant/Mauve. Rounding out the outerwear highlights are the slick Duckie Puffer and Duckie Raincoat, available in Black, Freesia, Mauve, and Palace Blue from XXS to XXL (priced from $88.00 to $98.00). Polar Fleece also makes an appearance, offering superior comfort and next-level softness, with a Pant and a Quarter Zip pullover, available in Black and Palace Blue with contrasting trim, from XS to XXL, retailing at $46.00 and $48.00.

American Apparel’s Fall 2018 collection also launches a new corduroy collection: 100% Cotton styles that are soft to the touch, incredibly comfortable, and vintage-inspired. Corduroy styles include a Zip Skirt, a Skirt Overall, a Letterman Jacket, and a versatile Shacket, available in Lieutenant, Hot Sauce, Dark Honey, and Navy. Corduroy pieces retail from $58.00 to $88.00, with sizes ranging from XS to XL.

Texture plays a key role this season, as American Apparel expands its Thick Rib collection. Thick Rib is a medium- weight cotton-poly blend designed to atter and shape the body, as evidenced by the new Soccer Jersey, Bodysuit, Crewneck Dress, Midi Tube Dress, Crop Turtleneck, Bralette, and Flare Pant. Thick Rib colorways are Black, Star White, Lavender, Freesia, and Maroon; sizing runs from XS to XL and styles are retailed from $28.00 to $44.00.

Denim plays a key role this fall, with a Denim Pocket Skirt ($58.00) in XS to XL; a Button Flare Jean in Vintage Blue ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; a Crop Pencil Jean ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; and a new men’s fit: the Straight Jean, made with 14-ounce denim for an authentic vintage feel. The Straight Jean is available in a Dark Wash and Medium Wash, retailing at $68.00 from size 30 to 34.

And in classic American Apparel tradition, fall includes a wide variety of premium basics, from iconic tees, tanks, and pullovers to hoodies, bodysuits, shorts, and much more. Mix-and-match foundational pieces for everyday wear and easy layering – for workouts, weekends, and everything in between. Adds Majid: “We believe in individuality and self- expression, and I think this collection embodies both.”
