Eczema Help: Eczema Triggers You Should Know

When you have eczema, life can be a little unpredictable. There are so many things that can trigger flares – and that means a lot of scratching, itching and redness. While it’s important to know how to treat eczema flares, it’s equally important to know how to prevent flares from happening in the first place. Check out these four common flare triggers and learn how MetaDerm’s eczema skin products help relieve itching and redness and promote healthy skin all the time.

1. Stress

Believe it or not, but stress can have a huge effect on your whole body, especially your skin. Just like it can cause your face to break out, it can also cause your eczema to flare up. We can’t always avoid stress, but you can help mitigate it. Try meditating, doing breathing exercises, or confiding in a friend. A great way to keep your skin prepped for anything is by using MetaDerm. MetaDerm is powerful enough to prevent flares, but gentle enough for everyday use.

2. Weather

Sudden changes in weather can have an impact on your eczema, too. Thankfully, the weather man can help you out. Double up on your skin’s moisturization when the forecast indicates that the weather might make you too sweaty or dry out your skin. MetaDerm can help here, too. Using it every day helps to balance your skin’s natural moisture, protecting it against weather-related triggers.

3. Irritating Substances

This one should be a no-brainer, but many people are unaware of how the chemicals or substances in everyday products can irritate their skin. Be on the lookout for laundry detergents, perfumes or colognes, certain fabrics, and other possibly irritating substances. When you find one that negatively affects your skin, get rid of it and find a sensitive alternative. Give your skin extra protection by using MetaDerm every day. MetaDerm helps repair the skin barrier and keep it resilient against triggers like irritating substances.

4. Lack of Moisture

As mentioned above, moisturization is very important when it comes to preventing eczema flares. Whether the trigger is stress, weather or an irritant, most of the time, it comes down to your skin’s own lack of moisture. Keep your skin ready for anything life might throw at you by moisturizing, moisturizing, moisturizing. An easy way to give your skin the love it deserves is through a personalized MetaDerm plan. Our experts develop a plan that fits your life and provide ongoing support to keep your skin at its best.

There you have it! Those are the most common triggers for eczema flares. Now it’s time to put them to the test. Be aware of your surroundings and how your skin reacts to see which triggers most affect you. Remember to use MetaDerm at least twice daily to promote healthy skin and prevent future flares.
