Winterizing Dry Itchy Skin

Dry, itchy skin can become a real problem as the cold winter months set in.  Because rooms are heated, the humidity in the air is lower than at other times.  Add long sleeves and woolens to this and your skin becomes dehydrated.  When the skin becomes dehydrated, exfoliation slows down and the formation of abnormal clumps form on the skin’s surface, making it rough, dry and occasionally itchy, as show above on Rose Henderson's elbow.

People with atopic dermatitis are especially vulnerable to itchy skin during winter months.  Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition frequently associated with allergies, asthma or hay fever.  It is unusually sensitive and may sting when exposed to fragrances, perfumes or some additives.

Here we have a close up of the elbow shown above.  Emu oil has not yet been applied.  Note that subject has been scratching the dry itchy skin.  Skin is broken in at least a couple of places and there is scabbing over in at least one area.  Henderson tells us that during winter months she will often wind up with a rash running from her elbow half way to her wrist.  This season she decided to try using Purple Emu's Pure Refined Emu Oil on her skin breakdown.  "I liked the fact that it was an all natural product and that it was from birds grown here in the United States."  Henderson went on to say that she had researched emu oil extensively prior to purchase and felt more comfortable with the quality of oil produced in the United States, as well as being sure that birds were raised humanely.  "I read about the emu oil certification program set up by the American Emu Association and made sure that the oil was certified as Fully Refined."

"The emu oil stopped the itching immediately" Henderson reported, "I used it three times a day and within 4 days the skin was back to normal."  Rose went on to tell us that she is now using the pure emu oil as a moisturizer after baths.  "I'm using it as a preventative now, to winterize my skin."

Purple Emu Pure Refined Emu Oil is tested by an American Oil Chemist Society certified lab and meets AEA standards as Fully Refined.
