When the skin dries out and emits signals such as redness, flaking, itching and signs of inflammation, it usually triggers a vicious circle which puts not only the skin but also the affected person in an irritable mood. Irrespective of the causes, the dryness increasingly damages the healthy skin barrier and leads to further deterioration of the skin condition.
There are many causes of skin irritation - for example:
- excessive hygiene
- excessive UV exposure
- signs of ageing
- underlying atopias and neurodermatitis
With the right care, the specific problems of dry and irritated skin can be combated in a very targeted way and provide effective relief.
Through the sustainable regeneration and hydration of dry skin it is important to optimally adapt the care to the needs of the irritated skin, which are the main focus of the attention.
Dry skin prone to itching needs comprehensive and coordinated care.
For acute itchy skin, cooling, slightly anaesthetising active ingredients are tried and tested. DERMASENCE Polaneth Lotion contains menthol and polidocanol, two active ingredients that quickly and effectively reduce the itching sensation. In addition, urea and high-quality plant oils provide the skin with moisture and thus protect it from drying out in the long term.
DERMASENCE Vitop forte Care cream is an intensive care product for skin prone to neurodermatitis. The unique active complex of dyer’s woad, green tea and aloe vera can effectively prevent skin irritations and thus also itching when used regularly.
For daily cleansing, we recommend a cleansing foam that has an anti-inflammatory effect and provides your skin with moisture. DERMASENCE BarrioPro Cleansing Foam reduces skin irritations and cleanses particularly gently.
