I know I’m not the only stateside East-Coaster suffering the side effects of truly unpredictable weather, also known as proof that the climate crisis isn’t some made-up catastrophe. Sure, 60 degrees in the middle of January feels great at the moment, but when those numbers drop significantly 24 hours later, the sniffles soon follow and before you know it, skin feels like sandpaper too. In moments like these, you don’t even need a dermatologist to suggest stocking up on the best eczema lotionit’s an absolute must.

As I’ve said before, finding a tried-and-true fave is relative to the person, whether they have eczema-prone skin or not. Fragrance-free is a non-negotiable caveat for some while going the all-natural route is better for others. And then there are people like me who like to mix and match because they can’t stop buying things. I always recommend starting with the National Eczema Association website which regularly updates the long list of products that pass their strict guidelines, but word-of-mouth can be just as valuable too.

Of course, there are plenty of things you can do besides buying something at the drugstore. Skincare enthusiasts and experts alike recommend doing everything from taking shorter showers to sleeping with a humidifier to wearing skin-friendly fabrics. But if you have eczema-prone skin and simply can’t turn down a bargain, make sure it’s one of these.
