A closer look at problem skin

There are a variety of skin conditions that need to be treated with the right skin care products. Eucerin understands that all skin types are different and problem skin needs the best attention, which is why they’ve tailored their products for dry skin, ageing skin, sensitive skin, hyperpigmentation and skin prone to blemishes. Their products are also specially developed to help those with problem skin like eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and chapped skin to manage their conditions and keep them under control.


Eczema:

Eczema relates to a group of medical skin conditions that cause the skin to become irritated and inflamed. Atopic dermatitis is the most common form of eczema and is experienced mostly by young children. The condition is usually outgrown in childhood, although some people can still suffer with it throughout life. It causes redness and itching to the skin and can cause the skin to become very dry. Eczema in general affects the skin’s moisture barrier function and has difficulty keeping the right levels of moisture in and number of irritants out. It also disturbs the formation of skin’s natural oils, which causes the skin to lose moisture and become dry and irritated.


What’s the best treatment?

Those suffering from eczema should always stick to mild skin care products that avoid the use of fragrances, soaps and other irritants. Daily moisturising with a product like Eucerin Intensive is the best way to manage the condition and avoid flare-ups, especially just after bathing when the skin is still damp to really lock in moisture. Eucerin not only provides moisturising creams and lotions, but also shampoos and soothing skin balms to make sure your entire beauty routine is tailored to looking after your condition.


Rosacea:

Rosacea is a skin disorder that only occurs on the face. It is quite a common condition in adults over the age of 30 and even though women are more likely to develop the condition, men are more likely to suffer more severely. Rosacea causes flushed skin, persistent skin redness and visibly enlarged or broken blood vessels. An important element to managing this condition is identifying known triggers that lead to flare-ups. Some people find that spicy foods, alcohol, stress, sun exposure and irritating skin care products can lead to more severe flushing and redness of the skin.


What’s the best treatment?

Maintaining a good skin care routine is helpful for any skin condition and managing rosacea is no different. Washing your face with gentle, soap-free cleansers like Eucerin Mild Cleansing Milk and Eucerin Refreshing Cleansing Gel will help to keep your skin healthy while avoiding irritating it further. Just remember to wash with warm water, as hot water could make the condition worse. Also, pick a moisturiser with added SPF to avoid the harm from UV rays.
