Protect Your Children From Windburn
In the cold winter months there is an unpleasant skin condition known as windburn. My oldest son gets
a severe form of windburn around his mouth and on his hands. I remember midnight
trips to the store to buy ointments to ease the severe pain he was
suffering. As with sunburn, windburn can
leave your skin red, raw and blistered. A severe windburn might even peel like
We now have learned to treat and prevent windburn
altogether. Since the chemical ones will leave a burning sensation on the skin,
we use natural moisturizer. We have tried pure Shea/Cocoa butter, natural
petroleum jelly and pure Vitamin E moisturizers, as well as natural unscented
and chemical-free lip balms. Of course, remember to bundle up. It is important
to remember that the face is extremely susceptible to windburn.
.TIP Put a lip balm or swivel stick moisturizer in your child’s pocket so it
will be handy in case you are not close by.
