How Vitamin E Can Help Treat Flare Ups with Mountain Ice Eczema Cream
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a group of medical conditions that cause flareups of inflamed, irritated skin. The disease, which affects 35 million Americans, requires careful management including awareness of individual eczema triggers and finding the right treatment methods, such as Mountain Ice Eczema Cream.

Eczema, being an inflammatory disease, often results in flare-ups of irritated, dry skin. As shown in studies, Vitamin E can help mediate these flare-ups, reducing itching, dryness, and pain!
A Powerful Antioxidant
As an antioxidant, Vitamin E protects cell membranes on the skin and elsewhere from free radicals. These unstable cells cause oxidative stress, in which an excess of free radicals can cause damage to cells, leading to inflammation, visible signs of aging, or chronic illness. By scavenging these free radicals, Vitamin E prevents long-term damage to your cells as well as reduces signs of aging.
Vitamin E in the skin helps to absorb UVB rays, the form of light responsible for sunburns and aging skin. As sunburns can make eczema much worse, this can help prevent a significant eczema trigger from
