ATOPY AND AD

Atopic skin combines the features of dry and sensitive skin; it is often characterised by excessive exfoliation and increased follicular keratosis. In periods of exacerbation severe inflammation may be experienced. These symptoms result from damage to the epidermal barrier function, leading to increased water loss and decreased water binding capacity of the epidermis. The essence of atopic skin care is keeping the skin moisturised and lubricated. Soothing oil baths may help, especially when enriched with emollient-based preparations, increasing water retention in the epidermis.
