Correct application in case of dry skin or eczema
The idea that using moisturisers makes the skin ‘lazy’, causing it to produce even less oil was soundly disproven long ago.
Nevertheless, the quantity of cream used is often insufficient which means that there is no great improvement in the skin’s condition and the risk of a fresh attack of neurodermatitis is not significantly reduced.
It would be ideal if the entire body were treated with creams all the time but if at least the most affected areas of skin are moisturised regularly, then much is already accomplished.
Itching can be a very reliable gauge of whether or not we are moisturising properly. Skin becomes itchier particularly when creams are being applied in inadequate amounts or not often enough.
It is also important to apply cream at least twice day because the skin can only absorb a limited amount of oil each time.
