Scalp Eczema - Change your Eczema Diet for the Cold

By: Janet Simpson

If there is one thing you should do during the colder months of the year to ensure continuity of a healthy scalp, it is to keep your scalp hydrated and moist from the inside.

This means increasing the amount of good oils that you consume on a daily basis. It means increasing and changing the kind of fluids that you consume and it means sticking with the eczema diet that has worked over the spring and summer months.

Without realising it, it is easy to dramatically change your diet during the winter because of your need to keep your body warm.

This can involve increasing the amount of carbohydrates you eat in the form of junk food, foods made with white flour and snacks.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

You can continue with your healthy, nutritious eczema diet with a few changes and thus continue to create beautiful, soft skin which is eczema free.

The trick is to be aware of your body's changing needs during the winter.

Tip #1 - Change Your Scalp Eczema Diet For the Cold

Increasing the amount of carbohydrates that you consume on a daily basis is a good idea. But it is important that you stick to only wholegrain carbohydrates. You can increase the quantity of brown rice, potato and wholegrain pasta.

If you usually eat a cupful of brown rice twice a week, increase it to one cup and a half perhaps four times per week.

Tip #2 - Change Your Scalp Eczema Diet For the Cold

Increase the number of vegetable stews and soups that you prepare. Toss in a few more solid vegetables such as Swedes, turnips and potato. They take a little longer to digest and will work toward keeping the body warmer.

Tip #3 - Change Your Scalp Eczema Diet For the Cold

Increase by a tablespoon per day, the amount of good oils you take in. Oils such as flaxseed, hemp or olive oil can be increased to help with continuous lubrication.
