Soothing care for atopic skin – even during itchy flare-ups
Eucerin AtopiControl is a range of dermo-cosmetic products that care for dry and irritable skin and also atopic skin during inactive phases and when flare-ups occur. Each has been clinically and dermatologically proven to reduce dryness, scaling and tension while relieving itching and all are proven to be compatible with atopic skin.
The Basic Care lotions and creams contain a combination of Omega-6-fatty acids and Licochalcone A to replenish skin, restoring its natural barrier and making it more resilient. As well as hydrating skin intensively, these products reduce the roughness, itch and tightness associated with atopic skin.
The Active Care range includes Eucerin's new AtopiControl Acute Care Cream. Its skin caring properties significantly improve the skin's appearance during flare-up phases and help reduce the use of hydrocortisone during flare-ups. A clinical study shows a comparable cosmetic effect of the skin caring properties of Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to the effects of a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the complexion of atopic skin. AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a pharmaceutical product and is not meant to replace one. The other product in the Active Care range is Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-itch Care Spray which, as its name suggests, gives instant relief to itchy skin.
No fragrances, colourants or parabens have been used in this range and products are suitable for children and babies over the age of 3 months (or 3 years for Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch Care Spray).
If you have smaller areas of hyperpigmentation, apply Eucerin EVEN BRIGHTER Spot Concentrate directly to your dark spots twice a day.
Sun protection plays a vital role in preventing hyperpigmentation. That’s why Eucerin EVEN BRIGHTER Day Cream contains a high UVA and SPF 30 sunscreen to give your skin the protection it needs.
Reduce smoking and drinking – both alcohol and nicotine increase the free-radical damage that speeds up the ageing process.
Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat. Apply sun protection products generously before sun exposure. Applying an insufficient quantity of sunscreen will reduce the protective effect.
Moisturise after bathing or showering.
Apply Eucerin Volume-Filler Night Care in firm upwards strokes to stimulate the underlying facial muscles and improve microcirculation while you sleep.
Acne symptoms vary, as do the grades of severity, so adapt the care routine accordingly.
Eat a healthy diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid highly processed or sugar-rich food to keep skin at its most youthful.
Avoid exposure to sun during peak times to avoid damage and discomfort to sensitive skin.
Skin care products could be kept in the fridge as cooled creams offer additional itch relief.
