Q:

I am still working on clearing up my contact dermatitis. Unfortunately, the eczema on my face has left behind textured lines on my face that wont go away. They age my skin and I don't know if there is anything I can do?

A:

Hi there!

I've seen that before in photos. How annoying that once you get your skin to clear up, you're left with another problem?!

Hmm... I would think that exfoliating, doing at-home facials, and facial masks would help.  Also, taking omega vitamins is supposed to really help your skin as well. Olive oil is great for the skin, so it couldn't hurt to switch from cooking with butter to extra virgin olive oil. I don't think this will banish all of the lines completely, but I think it could help.

Here's a great exfoliator that I've used by VMV Hypoallergenics. Love this stuff.

I just recently tried this detoxing mask by 100% Pure and it left my skin feeling surprisingly smooth.

Here's how I do a facial at home with my sensitive skin.

I hope this helps! Congrats to your skin improving.  I hope it stays on that track!

Sincerely,

The Allergista
