SOOTHE Eczema Flare-ups with This Light Treatment
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Folks with eczema can’t catch a break.
It’s not just the winter dryness that causes painful flare-ups… the hot summer air can do it too.
And suddenly you’re pulling those sweaters back out just to cover up out of embarrassment.
But now, you don’t have to suffer silently anymore.
Researchers have discovered that solving summertime eczema is incredibly simple, thanks to this light treatment.
So what’s causing your outbreaks? Believe it or not, less sunshine.
And not just the sunshine itself – but less natural vitamin D.
If you aren’t taking vitamin D right now, you should stop whatever you are doing and get some.
Eczema (or what doctors call atopic dermatitis) is the most common skin disorder in the world. People with this condition have red, itchy skin that gets worse in the winter.
The main reason this happens is because the sun creates active vitamin D in our bodies. When ultraviolet rays from the sun hit our skin, it changes inactive vitamin D into the active form our bodies need.
Vitamin D does so many great things. It works by boosting the immune system, reducing inflammation, and is great for your skin.
Recent research from the journal Pharmacology Research and Perspective tested vitamin D in a randomized trial of 86 children with eczema. The participants either took daily vitamin D or placebo for three months.
After 90 days, doctors performed examinations, and everyone was given a score.
The children taking vitamin D fared far better than placebo group. In fact, 56 percent of children who took supplements had improvement compared with just 42 percent in the placebo group. That’s a 25 percent improvement!
If you want to make your skin shine, try the following.
Dr. Scott’s Skin Program:
- Get 1000-3000 IU of vitamin D every day. Taking a supplement is only half of the secret. Make sure you get out in the sun for 15 minutes a day to help activate your body’s absorption.
- Take anti-aging nutrients. Alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and astaxanthin are powerful antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients.
- Keep your blood sugar under control. One of the other reasons our skin ages fast is because of out-of-control blood sugar. Use the mineral chromium and the herbal extract berberine to help keep your blood sugar under control.
- Exercise. Getting enough exercise not only helps bring blood to your skin, but you can also get more sunshine–which helps your body produce its own vitamin D.
