A moisturiser specially formulated for very dry and rough skin should be rich in the ingredients that skin needs to prevent moisture loss, bind in more water and strengthen its protective barrier. Left untreated, or treated with a product that doesn’t contain the appropriate ingredients, skin might dry out further and may even crack.
Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS Lotion 5% Urea contains Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss) and Urea and other NMFs (to bind water in to the skin). The formula gives immediate relief and delays the symptoms of very dry skin (such as roughness and scaliness) for up to 48 hours.

Your choice of product should depend on the level of dryness of your skin and the symptoms you experience. If your skin is dry or very dry and rough then 5% Urea should be a sufficient concentration to provide immediate and long-lasting relief.

If you are in any doubt, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.
