Skin Conditions

Eczema is a skin complaint that affects lots of people from adults to children. As of yet there is no cure but there are ways to deal with the itching and irritability. Salcura offers a variety of products which can help deal with the symptoms of eczema. There are also other steps which can be taken to try and reduce the unpleasant effects of eczema. As the sun can affect eczema sufferers, it may be a good idea to apply some moisturising cream before you go out into the sun. You can also reduce the itching by opting for natural, cotton clothing and bedding, as your skin can breathe, rather than synthetic fabrics and wool. Nails need to be kept short, and having a cool room to sleep in may help prevent itchiness too.

Dermatitis is a condition which causes inflammation of the skin. There are several types of dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is often hereditary, while contact dermatitis occurs when your body comes into contact with a particular substance. There are two types of contact dermatitis. Firstly allergic contact dermatitis is caused by an allergen, while irritant contact dermatitis is caused by coming into contact with an irritant. 80% of dermatitis cases are caused by irritants, dermatitis is also extremely common to occur on hands and more common in women than men. Salcura offers relief from dermatitis, and often removing the irritant can also help.

Psoriasis is a common skin condition which is caused by an accelerated skin replacement process. Psoriasis can affect anyone, of any age, of any gender. It is also not contagious which is often something that it is mistakenly believed to be. Unfortunately there is no cure for psoriasis but Salcura offers products which can relieve the symptoms. It can also really help to keep your skin moisturised, so that the skin feels more comfortable and creams can soak more easily into the skin.

Dry skin affects most of us in the winter months, especially as our skin has to deal with heating, harsh winds, and the cold weather which dries out our skin. As cold weather makes you less thirsty you need to ensure that you stay hydrated.

You need to give extra special care with dry skin. You need to treat it gently, patting it dry, using moisturising cream, and moisture rich toiletries to moisturise and soften the skin.

There are many ways to deal with dry skin, and Salcura have many moisturising creams and toiletries. Other ways to combat dry skin are to increase your intake of water and fatty acids, to not smoke as it deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients, which it needs for good health. Also don't use very hot water when bathing or showering, ensure that you eat a balanced diet, and increase your intake of raw foods, while making sure that you avoid fatty foods, alcohol and caffeine.
