Skincare products for: Atopic skin
Atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is an itching and chronic skin disease, that is very common in the Northern countries. It is characterised by dry, itchy and inflamed skin on areas such as the face (eyelids are often involved), neck, trunk and extremities (especially at the flexure areas). It is really common in kids but can occur at any age. Read what MD Maria Schröder has to say about atopic dermatitis in our blog and check out our customer Jaana's skin story about atopic skin here.
In terms of skincare, it's important to moisturise dry skin properly and avoid soap and other drying agents such as alcohol. For moisturisers, heavier ointments , salves and balms with higher oil content may be more effective than thin lotions. For all types of skincare products, mildly fragranced or fragrance-free may also be a less irritating option.
