Share Article

Following a story from Family Practice News discussing the prevalence of eczema across America, Likewise Skincare has commented on the study regarding skin issues in the United States.

On July 25, 2012, Likewise Skincare, a skincare manufacturer that produces facial moisturizer for dry skin, commented on a study done by Dr. Jonathan I. Silverberg. According to an article in Family Practice News, Dr. Silverberg has claimed that climate and weather is a contributing factor to the occurrence of eczema.

The article states that Dr. Silverberg took the data from a 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health compiled by the Department of Health and Human Services and combined it with state-by-state data from both the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center and the National Weather Service. The findings in the research proved that “the prevalence of eczema was significantly lower in areas of the country with high relative humidity during the previous 2 years.” The study also found that the occurrence of eczema was less high in areas with a high or extreme UV index. Eczema was also less common in areas with a more than average outdoor air temperature. Conversely, eczema is more common in areas with a higher heating degree day index.

Although environmental impact contributes to dry skin, there are other potential factors that can contribute to eczema. The article goes on the state that, “family history, race/ethnicity, urban living, and socioeconomic status” are all established eczema risk factors. The study was partly funded by a grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.

Likewise Skincare commends the ground breaking research and study. The skincare manufacturer produces moisturizers to relieve skin issues like uncomfortable dry skin. Facial moisturizer for dry skin may help ease the irritation of eczema. Eczema is a chronic medical condition that causes skin to become dry, scaly, itchy, and inflamed.

Likewise Skincare was founded by board certified dermatologist and President of Likewise, Inc., Dr. Julie Pena. Likewise daily moisturizers are all-in-one but not one-fits-all. Each moisturizer is formulated with skin-balancing toners to work with your specific skin type. The moisturizers use a combination of anti-aging antioxidants, ultra-protective zinc oxide, and water-resistant ingredients to keep you protected.
