The snow trickles quietly - unfortunately not only in winter. Our skin is stressed every day and therefore needs a lot of care. Very. much. Baby bum-a lot. So that your lipedema and lymphedema skin gets well nourished, strong and healthy through the year, I have a few tips on skin care and matching products from average for you.

Tips on skin care for lipedema and lymphedema

1. Cream yourself in the evening

At night, after a long day, your skin finally has the opportunity to take a deep breath. Help them regenerate and apply a lot of cream before going to bed. Your night cream should be very rich so that the time without the compression is used perfectly. I use medi Night for this.

2. Use an exfoliating glove

The condition of your skin can have a major impact on the hold of the compression stocking. Loose flakes of skin are deposited in the knitted fabric and let your supply slip. So scrub and scrub your body with one while showering Peeling glove from. This not only gives you velvety skin, but also prevents hair from growing in.

Make sure that you do not apply any body lotion, as this can cause deposits to form in the tissue. So please only use care products that are intended directly for compression wearers. The medi Day Gel, for example, also has a cooling effect, which can make the start of the day easier for heavy legs. The medi Fresh Spray also gives you a freshness boost for in between. Simply feel and enjoy the compression on hot days.

4. Stimulate your skin

There are several ways to really get your skin going and to stimulate blood circulation. In the self-help groups you can find some great helpers, such as B. a massage roller (available from dm). Stimulating your skin not only has regenerative benefits, but also stimulates the lymphatic system.

5. Keep the adhesive edge clean and avoid irritation

Remember that the smallest wounds can be your doom - especially with lymphedema. Sometimes skin irritations occur due to the silicone coating on the adhesive edge of your compression stockings. The least I can do for your skin is to free it from impurities. You do this mainly by making sure that the inside of the stockings is always facing outwards when washing. When you're out and about, take a suitable detergent with you to freshen up your compression in the sink, even if it's just the silicone edge. For this you can pack medi clean in your travel bag.

The skin is our largest organ

Be good to your skin, care for it until you can reflect yourself in it and do something good for you. Because these small care units are a nice break that you can take for yourself. Or simply give it to others. Perhaps you've made a great friendship in your self-help group or the regulars' table. Such a skincare breakout basket is quick to pack and definitely puts a smile on your face! 

You can purchase medi care products in your trusted medical supply store. The next birthday and Christmas is somehow always coming up.

I hope you enjoy grooming!

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
