Consumer careline: 0860 102091. Symptoms and causes: More and more people suffer from the various forms of dry skin. Depending on the degree of severity of dryness the skin tightens, is rough, prone to itching, scaling and reddening. Also typical for dry skin is an impaired skin barrier function resulting in a higher risk of the penetration of irritants and allergens. In dry skin this defective skin barrier function can lead to: A deficit in the ability to bind sufficient amounts of moisture, resulting in an increased moisture loss. A lack of lipids, essential for a stable skin barrier function, which is resulting from a reduction in the skin's metabolism of omega-6 fatty acids. The skin barrier function can additionally get affected by external factors, namely dry and cold climate, exposure to hot water and harsh detergents, or improper skin care. This may result in an enhanced penetration of irritants and allergens and encourage the colonization of the skin with certain germs (staphylococcus aureus). As a result skin inflammation, redness, and itchiness develops. Even after a flare-up has been cleared due to medical treatment supplemented by effective skin care the skin usually remains dry and irritated due to the persisting impairment of its barrier function and microinflammation. Therefore an effective skin care regimen is important. The care solution: Eucerin® AtoControl: Eucerin® skin research has developed specific caring solutions: the complete range of cleansing and care products is free of parabens, fragrance and colourants. All ingredients are carefully chosen to help minimise the risk of skin irritations and allergies. Clinical and dermatological studies confirm: Very good efficacy and skin compatibility proven.
