As I see patients this time of year, after a long hard winter, I often think that their skin is tired and giving out, even exhausted. This is from fighting the terrible drying conditions of the cold weather. The skin barrier function—that outer layer that keeps the good nutrients and hydration in, and the bad drying/irritating elements out—can’t keep up with the onslaught. This results in itching, scaling and finally red rashes called Asteatotic Eczema. This is dry skin to the 10th power. This can break the skin open, and bacterial and viral infections can ensue. REMEMBER: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

SPRING IS HERE and it’s TIME TO RESCUE YOUR HIDE! Epionce has a NEW CREAM that’s perfect to help revive your exhausted dry skin — RENEWAL CALMING CREAM. This cost effective cream will soothe and comfort as well as intensively moisturize your skin. With five natural active ingredients it repairs and revitalizes without harming your skin. Call 1-866-374-6623 to order, and don’t forget to tell them you are a Dr Smith follower. They will give you FREE SHIPPING!

If you know someone with more extensive dry rashy skin, tell them to use EPIONCE Renewal Calming Cream in combination with Loma Lux Eczema Pill. I personally developed this NATURAL internal product for the skin 20 years ago and it’s still working—from the inside out!

Praying for your effectual healing,
