Eczema Vs. Dry Skin: How To Tell The Difference + Our Top Products For Treatment

71 comments

Can you tell the difference between dry skin and eczema? If you’ve ever found yourself confused by these two seemingly similar skin conditions, be sure to keep reading.

 

Although eczema and dry skin share a lot in common, there are some key differences that are critical to know for proper care. To help you out, here’s a helpful breakdown:

 

Eczema Basics:

In technical terms, eczema is an inflammatory skin condition, also sometimes referred to as atopic dermatitis. Although the exact cause of eczema is unknown, most experts cite that it is the result of genetics, as well as environmental factors, which can cause chronic symptoms.

 

Common characteristics of eczema include rashes, itchy skin, and dry patches that may appear red, flaky, or scaly. Additionally, eczema can be worsened when certain triggers are present - including allergies, irritants, certain foods, and stress. In most cases, symptoms can be managed with proper treatment, and may come and go throughout a person’s lifetime.


Skincare Recommendations For Eczema:

In order to address root issues related to eczema – including inflammation and a compromised moisture barrier – the best products will be those that feature simple, gentle, soothing and calming ingredients.

 

Lizzie’s product picks:

  • Eczema Butter – The ultimate skin soother, our body butter was designed especially for eczema with ingredients that target common symptoms. Key components include shea butter, colloidal oats, and six different skin nourishing botanical oils.

  • Eczema Oil – Our calming oil blend for infusing the skin with intense moisture. For this soothing elixir we offer an unscented formula, as well as gently fragranced versions.

  • Organic Unscented Eczema Soap or Body Wash – For anyone whose skin reacts negatively to fragrance, we’ve designed two amazing cleanser options, suitable for daily use without causing irritation.

 

  • Oatmeal and Honey Soap – Our signature soap recipe includes shea butter, hemp seed, coconut, olive, and sunflower oils – all of which support moisture retention for healthy skin. We especially love the Oatmeal and Honey because both ingredients are known to calm and protect sensitive skin.

Dry Skin 101

Dry skin tends to be a more broad term, referring to skin that lacks moisture. It is one of the four primary skin types, and also determined by genetics. However, dry skin is much more common than eczema, and is typically marked by more mild symptoms.

 

Those with dry skin tend to have small pores which do not produce much oil leading to a lack of elasticity, tendency to show fine lines, sensitivity, and in extreme cases, itching or flaking. Similar to eczema, dry skin can be affected by external factors, such as dry climate, aging, UV exposure, or use of products that don’t support moisture retention in the skin.

 

Skincare Recommendations For Dry Skin

The best products for dry skin will be those that replenish the skin with hydrating and moisturizing ingredients. Those with dry skin should avoid harsh cleansers and aggressive exfoliants, as these can strip the skin of protective oils and lipids.

 

Lizzie’s Product Picks:

  • Whipped Shea Butter – Shea butter is known to be one of the best ingredients for dry skin. It’s filled with vitamins, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, making it an ideal choice for replenishment and repair. It also absorbs quickly, leaving the skin soft, supple and smooth.

  • Oatmeal and Honey Soap – Our signature soap recipe includes shea butter, hemp seed, coconut, olive, and sunflower oils – all of which support moisture retention for healthy skin. We especially love the Oatmeal and Honey because both ingredients are known to calm and protect sensitive skin.

 

Eczema Vs. Dry Skin: Key Differences To Understand


Although eczema and dry skin are not the same thing, it’s important to note that they can overlap. Many people with eczema also struggle with dry skin as a symptom, and eczema flares are often exacerbated when the skin lacks moisture. In order to properly address eczema, it can be very helpful to be aware of this connection, and be mindful to treat signs of dryness, as part of a comprehensive care routine.

    My credit score was low 520, and I recently applied for a credit card with my bank but wasn’t approved, I was told it was due to my poor score and debt, as I have a high student loan balance. I contacted ”CREDIT FIX HUB” credit Specialist which I found his services very useful and I asked if he could help me repair my credit. He told me he can, asked for some of my information though I was skeptical at first but I later comply to his request and the result was epic. He improved my credit score to an excellent point, remove all judgment on my credit history, clear my debt and finally he added two positive Tradelines to my credit. Contact him at CREDITFIXHUB@OUTLOOK.COM. He’s a solution to any credit issue, goes beyond his perimeter to satisfy your need and ensure your safety.

    I needed urgent help! My husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer 2 years ago and my charge cards were unable to keep up with the medical bills for my health along with a few other negative marks. I tried to work on my negative marks and hard inquiries without success. I read about H A C K M A V E N S on this platform and I took the risk though I was scared of trusting a huge amount of money and my information to a total stranger but I decided to give him a try. I marveled at the result I got afterward. Everything is now at an excellent rate and my score raised from 470 to 798 within 6 days. You can contact him via; H A C K M A V E N S 5 @ G M A I L . C O M or Call/Text/WhatsApp: + 1 (2 0 9) 4 1 7 – 1 9 5 7. GOODLUCK!

    Hey there, My name is Sandra and I live here in Canada. I hate to say this because I am not proud of it, but for the interest of those who maybe going through similar predicaments; I had criminal record which deprived me of so many job opportunities alongside hard inquiries and about 16 derogatory items which messed up my report and lowered my credit score to low 520 (TransUnion) 560(Equifax) and 540 (Experian). I couldn’t meet up with so many payments and I had plenty debts, it was going to ruin my life until I read testimonies about H a c k Mavens on a blog and how they can help recover lost crypto assets, track a cheating spouse, clean criminal records as well as fixing credit, I thought it was all a faux but something told me to give it a try and after few days, my record was wiped clean and my credit was brought up to 810. I’m so excited and I strongly recommend H A C K M A V E N S 5 @ G M A I L . C O M to anyone who might need their help. You can also Call/Text/Whatsapp: + 1 (2 0 9) 4 1 7 – 1 9 5 7
