Bet you didn’t know that how you wash your sheets, towels and t-shirts can also have an effect on your skin?
Everything from your clothes to towels, bedding and even your kids’ toys, can trigger irritation, especially if you suffer from eczema or atopic dermatitis. According to the National Eczema Society, over 30 million Americans have some form of eczema, and there are many different types of this common skin condition.
According to Boca Raton dermatologist Jeffrey Fromowitz, â€œDyes and fragrances found in laundry soaps and detergents have chemicals that in adults, children and babies with extremely sensitive skin, can trigger a reaction. It’s a good idea to wash all new fabrics
SOMETHING TO BREW ABOUT
During the cold winter months, thereâ€™s nothing better than curling up with a cup of tea. Be it green, black, peppermint, or chamomile, tea is soothing to your soul AND your skin. Its antioxidants flush out toxins from the skin and ease puffiness, while helping to counteract environmental pollutants such as UV exposure and cigarette smoke that can prematurely age and wrinkle your skin. January is National Hot Tea Month, and a good time to add tea not only to your morning routine but to your beauty repertoire as well. So brew up a cup and add these tea-infused products to your beauty stash to reap all the benefits.
A MATCHA MADE IN HEAVEN

The paste is heated and the oil is separated from the water in a centrifuge and stored for use in cooking or commercial products. Hereâ€™s a roundup of beauty items made with this all-natural product.
