Dry skin is one of the most common skin conditions, with 50-60% of men and 60-70% of women reporting some degree of sensitive/dry skin and 1 out of 3 working adults suffering from very dry skin. But what does it mean when we talk about ‘dry skin’?** As the body’s largest organ, the skin not only plays a vital role in regulating temperature, it also acts as a barrier in protecting the body against infection. Dry, irritated skin is our body’s way of sending an SOS signal that it is losing its ability to perform these functions.
SEPTEMBER 2020 – EUCERIN, the dermatologist-recommended skincare brand, is showcasing its dry skin range to help children and adults manage dry skin.
Eucerin’s Dry Skin range offers an assortment of products for body, face and scalp that are specifically formulated to care for dry skin. For many dry skin conditions such as atopic eczema and dermatitis, symptoms usually become more irritated due to decreasing urea levels – a moisturiser naturally present in healthy skin. The Eucerin Dry Skin range is formulated with urea and is designed to replace the urea lost when the skin becomes dry, reduce the risk of further moisture loss and maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance. Eucerin guarantees reliable and highly effective product innovations of the highest dermatological standards that help manage dry skin conditions.
The Eucerin Dry Skin range is available in independent pharmacies nationwide and includes:
