Hi I'm Dr. Jeanine Downie. I'm a board certified dermatologist from Montclair, New Jersey and I have eczema so I want to talk to you about winter skin.

This first thing you want to think about is not itching or scratching at all. That just makes your eczema worse and that's not good for you. It repeats a vicious cycle that's just not helpful.

The second thing you want to do is think about using a humidifier. When you plug that in that will add moisture to your skin, your hair and your nails.

And then you want to start thinking about what products you use. Aveeno skin relief has a gentle scent collection. This is dermatologist and allergy tested. The formulas are infused with gentle scent and they're clinically shown to be as gentle as fragrance free alternatives.

They have nourishing coconut or soothing oat and chamomile-scented body washes and body lotions.

My patients call me the sunblock police and what I want to get across to you is that everyone should wear sunblock within at least a SPF 30 everyday, rain or shine, January through December, regardless of your ethnicity.

So Aveeno has a positively radiant daily moisturizer that's broad spectrum with SPF 30 that totally fits the bill. This is formulated with active naturals like total soy complex and natural light diffusers. This is clinically proven to help to even out the skin tone and actually decreases dark spots in as little as 4 weeks.
