Hi, I'm Dr.Laurinda Kwan from the Arizona Natural Health Center. If you find your skin is wrinkled after eczema, the first thing you want to do, is make sure your eczema is cleared. Some topical treatments or lotions may aggravate your existing eczema condition. Once the eczema is cleared, there are a few tips. Take a loofah or body brush and dry brush the area. This helps to remove outer layers of skin, reducing a a superficial depth of wrinkles and promoting new skin growth. Then, apply vitamin E oil, rub directly to the wrinkled areas. This helps to heal skin, promote collagen production and smooth and soften the skin's appearance. You'll often find vitamin E in many anti-aging skin products. Since vitamin E is so thick and greasy, it's ideal for smaller areas of skin, such as hands, elbows and knees. If your wrinkles are on your hands, moisture gloves are a good option, that can be worn at night, once the vitamin E is rubbed on. That being said, I'm a big proponent of healing from the inside, out. There are few things that you can do to make sure a healthy diet supports healthy cell regeneration. Omega threes, this is the important essential fatty acids for skin. Not only is it anti-inflammatory, and thus can help prevent the recurrence of eczema. But healthy fats help to seal in moisture in the skin, thus keeping the elasticity in the skin and looking less wrinkled. One thousand milligrams of vitamin, of omega threes with food is ideal. But consult with your doctor before beginning, because some pre-existing conditions are excluded. Ideally, you want to find a supplement with just omega three. Because other essential fatty acid supplements have omega sixes in them. And some sources if omega sixes can be inflammatory to the skin. Plus, we typically get enough omega six in our diet, anyway. If you want to get more omega threes in your diet, cold water fish, nuts and seeds are great sources of omega threes and vitamin E. Another tip to get rid of wrinkles, is to take vitamin C. Vitamin C is necessary for cell regeneration of all tissues, skin included. Since vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, it helps to block some of the damage caused by free radicals, which can make skin look old and wrinkled. Since the body isn't able to make vitamin C on its own and stores it poorly. It's important to make sure you're getting enough in your diet. Add vegetables, such as red and green chili peppers, bell peppers, dark leafy greens, such as kale and broccoli. Cook these foods minimally and even eat some of them raw, because vitamin is heat sensitive. So, the longer you cook these vegetables, the more the vitamin decreases. For fruit, add papayas, citrus fruit, kiwi and strawberries. If you're interested in supplementing vitamin C in addition to foods, it's easy to find vitamin C in 500 milligram to 1000 milligram capsules at your local health food store. It's safe in larger doses, up to 5000 milligrams. But check with your doctor first to find your optimal dose. Also, remember to drink lots of water with your vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, so you receive maximum benefits by staying hydrated, plus hydrated skin looks less wrinkled. I'm Dr.Laurinda Kwan from the Arizona Natural Health Center, talking to you today, about how to get rid of wrinkles after eczema.
