Winter comes with a very loooong list of annoyances. While painfully cold temps rank as one of my biggest grievances, so does skin irritations caused by the weather, such as flare-ups from eczema. My older daughter has had to deal with winter eczema since she was a toddler, which typically means she has to deal with inflamed, itchy, and bumpy skin throughout the season. I’m always open to trying new things and recently discovered some gentle (yes!) products during an event in NYC for even the most sensitive skin types from La Roche-Posay.
