I’ve recently taken a deep interest in my skin health. Did you know that sensitive skin is actually code for ‘damaged skin barrier’? Almost everyone I know with seb derm (myself included) say they can’t use this or that product because they have sensitive skin.
To top it off, some researchers even go so far as to say that a damaged skin barrier is the root cause of seborrheic dermatitis. I don’t totally agree with them but I definitely think that the skin barrier plays a major role in seb derm.
In fact, I think if we repair our skin barrier, we’ll prevent seb derm flares and maybe even cure it. I’m working on a video about it at the moment.
In the mean time, you can read about how seb derm affects our skin barrier (and vice versa) and how to repair and maintain a healthy skin barrier in this article.
There is nothing more soothing than a hot shower when you have an itch (even in summer!) but you’ll always find that your rash looks and feels worse after.
This led me to write: Does hot water worsen seborrheic dermatitis?
Isn’t the pic cool? I feel quite proud of myself for designing this.
