Dry skin needs to be regularly hydrated and nourished with products that are specifically designed to alleviate this condition's side effects. Applying Eucerin products for dry and sensitive skin as part of a daily beauty routine can help to achieve this. Dry skin products formulated by Eucerin nurture each layer of the skin, leaving the surface soft and supple to the touch and providing instant relief from itching and discomfort. Made from carefully selected ingredients, regular use of these products gently restores a healthy, smooth and bright appearance to skin.
Internal and external factors can negatively affect the skin, leaving it dry and flaky, but a number of dry skin care products are available to restore and nourish.
Several ingredients are known to protect against dryness, and reverse many of its effects. Urea is one of the most popular, thanks to its non-allergenic properties. It gently replenishes naturally occurring moisturisers in the skin, and is scientifically proven to improve hydration and restore elasticity. Regular treatments will contain a 5% concentration of Urea, but Eucerin’s products for extremely dry skin, such as Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS products, contain as much as 10%. Such products are also suitable for people with very dry skin due to psoriasis or diabetes.
Urea and Lactate-based body washes also serve to boost the natural barriers in the upper layer of the skin – known as the “stratum corneum” – preventing loss of hydration and leaving the surface nourished and cleansed. Products are also available for areas that are prone to dry skin, including the face, hands and feet.
Creams for dry, flaky skin typically contain the active ingredient ceramide-3. This repairs the natural lipid barriers, which prevent the loss of moisture and help to keep skin feeling hydrated. Creams and balms are a soothing choice that retain moisture and rejuvenate the surface appearance.
Natural processes related to aging are also known to damage the skin and leave it dry and flaky, so discover some anti-aging solutions to keep skin fresh, vital and radiant.
