4 Signs Your Skin Needs Saving

H is for healing. If irritation, pimples, wounds, and bruises are taking a curiously long time to heal, your skin may be lacking certain vitamins and nutrients, perhaps due to a poor diet. Consult a physician.

E is for eczema. Signs of eczema include dry skin and red, inflamed patches. The condition occurs when skin becomes irritated because of allergies, which can be caused by consuming certain foods, using the wrong products, or even wearing specific fabrics. Do not overlook signs of eczema—ultra-sensitive skin needs proper care. Consult a dermatologist to learn what type of cleansing, moisturizing, and maintenance routine would be right for you. Often times, this will mean switching to lotions and cleansers with gentler, soothing elements, like the ones from AVEENO® ACTIVE NATURALS®.

L is for lines. Lines, wrinkles, and creases on your face happen naturally, but their development can be sped up from too much sun exposure, smoking, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, or an improper cleansing and moisturizing routine. If the texture of your skin begins to change drastically, take a critical look at your everyday routine and the things that may be wreaking havoc with your face. Are your wearing sunscreen and sunglasses daily? Have you been getting your eight hours a night? Your eight ounces a day?

P is for peeling. Along with peeling skin, if your face or body feels itchy and dry, chances are they’re lacking moisture. Hydrate by drinking enough water and moisturizing daily. Keep that moisture locked in while you sleep with the AVEENO® POSITIVELY RADIANT® Intensive Night Cream for face and during the day with the AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion for body.
