How to Prevent Eczema Flare Ups
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. But how does Mountain Ice Eczema Cream moisturize and repair damage to your skin? Powerful, restorative ingredients like SK-INFLUX® V MB. Read on to learn how it works to restore the skin's barrier.
How Lipids Prevent Eczema Flareups
SK-INFLUX® V MB is a skin-identical lipid concentrate that restores the protective barrier functions of the skin. But what are lipids? These waxy substances are fatty acids or derivatives, such as cholesterol or the ceramides that you may see advertised on skin care products. In the skin, lipids serve a dual function, both keeping out irritants like allergens and infections, and locking moisture in the skin barrier to prevent it from drying out and cracking. This keeps the skin barrier strong
Research shows that allergic immune response in eczema patients can lead to weaker lipids, through inhibiting the production of the enzymes that lengthen lipid chains. Shorter lipid chains are weaker, meaning they're less able to prevent irritants from entering the skin, and less water repellent, meaning they're less able to keep moisture locked in the skin.
How SK-INFLUX® V MB Restores the Skin Barrier
Skin products containing lipids like ceramides have been shown to improve treatment outcomes for eczema, by reducing eczema duration and symptoms and speeding up healing time. SK-INFLUX® V MB, a key ingredient in Mountain Ice Eczema Cream, is a concentrated formulation made of skin-identical ceramides, non-animal based cholesterol and free fatty acids, SK-INFLUX® V MB is designed to resemble the structure of the lipid barrier, filling in gaps in the Stratum corneum, the outermost layer of skin. This can help improve the function of a skin barrier that has been compromised by eczema, restoring its ability to protect your skin from irritants that can trigger eczema flareups.
